About the Event

Have you ever felt torn between the freedom that can be found in mindful eating and the looming reminders of the "restrictions" necessary to address your health goals? A balance between self-care and flexibility is the key to finding the “sweet spot” in mindful eating. Your approach can make the difference between feeling resentful or feeling empowered. Learn how autonomy and choice are essential elements in mindful eating and how to shift from an attitude of “being good” to one of “feeling good”. This workshop will set you on a journey toward creating your personal owner’s manual for your body by mastering mindfulness. Everyone truly can enjoy peace and health, simultaneously.

Learning Objectives

  • Examine your current eating style using a tool that measures self-care verses flexibility
  • Name the factors that promote intrinsic or value-driven health behaviors.
  • Develop mindfulness strategies for creating an "owners manual" for your unique health needs.
