With mindful eating, we can better observe our triggers for over- or under-eating and eating when we are not hungry. This workshop will help identify the thoughts, emotions and behaviours that lead us to over- or under-eat and explore why eat when not physically hungry. We will also explore cravings and how we can “surf the urge” with mindfulness and compassion. By listening to what our body needs, we can move toward a more positive relationship between food and our body.
Length: 90-minute workshop
Takeaways: Handout summarising main points; guided meditation for home practice
