Mindful Eating and Living (MEAL) Group
February 17 @ 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
An event every week that begins at 5:30pm on Friday, repeating until March 31, 2017
Your relationship to food is a central one that reflects your attitude toward your environment and yourself. As a practice, mindful eating can bring you awareness of your own actions, thoughts, feelings and motivations, and insight into the roots of health and contentment. MEAL is a one-of-a-kind, clinically proven program, which runs six weeks. MEAL teaches you an entirely new approach to healthy eating, weight loss, and stress reduction in breast cancer survivorship.
Food: The Solution, not the Problem
- Mindful eating offers two main advantages over dieting: 1) it helps you meet your physical needs, and 2) food satisfies your emotional needs.
- You’ll learn how to choose your way to eat food that is both pleasing to you and nourishing to your body by using all your senses to explore, savor and taste.
- You’ll develop a greater awareness of hunger and satiety clues from the body;
- You’ll be able to explore how stress impacts not only how you eat but how you live your life;
- We’ll pay particular attention toward developing stress management tools for a lifetime of health and greater well‐being;
- You’ll be able to learn to find personal triggers for mindless eating, such as emotions, social pressures, or certain foods;
- Each week we’ll practice with specially designed in‐class exercises for a direct experience of mindful eating.
