This teleconference will explore how Mindful Eating raises our awareness and teaches us how to appreciate what and how we eat. We all experience challenges arise that pull us away from consistently practicing these skills. This can often frustrate and demoralize us to the point of giving up the quest to put in the effort, energy and persistence that mindfulness requires. What are those barriers and how can we practice overcoming as we practice mindful eating?
1. What are the typical barriers to mindful eating?
2. Why are they important to recognize on an ongoing basis?
3. What are some of the ways to work with these barriers?
4. How do you cheer yourself on through the process?
