About this webinar:
Trying to stay in the moment and slowing down can be supportive in many aspects of our lives, including fostering a positive relationship with food. Join us to explore the benefits of mindful eating, the process of being present while preparing and enjoying our food. We will look at practical tips to include mindful eating practices in our lives such as noticing hunger and fullness cues and noticing sensory aspects of mealtimes. During this workshop we will practice a mindful eating exercise together, please come prepared with one of the following foods: a raisin, a square of chocolate, a nut, or a warm cup of tea.
