What would it be like to let go of worry over what and how much to eat?
In our world of abundant food and information, knowing what to eat can sometimes feel overwhelming. It seems easier to listen to the experts rather than trust the wisdom of our own bodies to guide us how to eat.
This workshop will teach practices to once again trust your body’s subtle cues and reclaim your ability to eat more mindfully. Research suggests that a regular mindfulness practice is associated with healthier eating habits and less emotional eating.
You will also be introduced to the practice of mindful self-compassion. Research has shown self-compassion to promote health behaviors, including eating a healthier diet and regular exercise, and self-compassion has also been found to be a more effective motivator than self-criticism. Workshop format will include guided mindful eating and self-compassion practices and time for Q &A.
