Join us for a mindful exploration of healthy eating and how our relationship with food can affect our mood. This is an interactive program that combines relaxation and mindfulness meditation exercises with practical nutritional knowledge. We look at how eating habits can interfere with overall health and wellness goals and learn how mindfulness can be used as a tool to improve eating habits.
Note: If you wish to participate in the mindful eating meditation exercises, please have a small piece of chocolate (any type) and a small box of raisins (or grapes, or any small food item) on hand.
Disclaimer: This workshop is psychoeducational in nature, providing practical nutritional knowledge with an introduction to mindful eating techniques. This is not a diet or weight-loss program or a treatment for individuals with an eating disorder.
