Get ridiculously interested in it’s texture, smell, and taste.
Feel the weight of your utensil in your hand, your body on your chair, your feet on the ground.
Practice this consistently. A simple door to the now.
I have started a similar practice, to be intimate with the 'small things' of daily life. Even when it is something I have aversion or resistance towards, go into it, feel it, neutralize any charge I may have towards it. I notice this softens and expands my overall awareness and experience of Life.
