Week 4: Mindfulness – tools to help increase awareness
Here is an overview of what will be covered in this class:
When you see the word “mindfulness”, what pops into your head? You may think of ways to meditate, relax or reduce your stress. These are certainly part of being mindful. However, when we talk about mindfulness in relation to the food we are shaping a different set of behaviors. These behaviors focus on how we approach and eat our food.
This class will teach you how to consider your mood, environment, routine and common distractions that interfere with your attempt to eat well. The group will discuss what cues have a negative influence on their eating patterns and problem solve on how to make positive changes.
