Mindfulness is the capacity to bring full attention and awareness to one’s experience, in the moment and free from judgment. Mindful eating brings an awareness to food choices and the nourishing experience of eating. Benefits of this practice include reconnecting to your innate wisdom about hunger and satiety, freeing yourself from reactive patterns around food and eating, and nourishing not only the body but the heart. Learn and try these practices.
