Mindful eating provides the opportunity for better health, a chance to connect with our bodies, and enjoy our food even more
In the RSA's Mindfulness Network March meeting, we will look at what mindful eating is and how it can improve our health and wellbeing, enable us to become more in tune with our body’s signals, and offer a satisfying opportunity to strengthen our ability to stay present and aware. Developing the ability to sense and use our hunger signals to decide to eat can help one to break the habit of “comfort eating” and develop a more intimate relationship with - and enjoyment from - our food.
Research has shown that mindful eaters exhibit less symptoms of eating disorders, have lower body weights, and a greater sense of wellbeing.
In this session we will discuss overall principles and review the current research on mindful eating. You will learn helpful tips on how to begin and embed the practice of mindful eating in your life. The session will include an eating meditation and networking with Fellows.
Tea and coffee will be available on arrival. This is a free event but please do register at the top of this page so we know that you will be joining us. Any questions, please email network lead Henry Ford FRSA: [email protected]
About this network...
The aim of the Mindfulness Network is to engage, educate and inspire Fellows to practise mindfulness and empower them to mainstream mindfulness in their lives and communities. The Network enables Fellows to access research, practice Mindfulness together and work with a network of practitioners, teachers and Fellows to share practical interventions. An important goal of Mindfulness is to create the conditions for the enlightened thinking and collaborative action needed to address today's most pressing challenges.
