Mindful Eating Day was established to counter the avalanche of diet-culture influenced messaging that can bury a person in guilt, shame and blame. It's held in January, when diet-culture messaging is at a peak, to offer an alternative approach of self-care and kindness.
Each year explores a different theme related to mindful eating, and includes contributions by principal teachers and thinkers in mindful eating. Leading up to Mindful Eating Day is Mindful Eating Month in which we share and discuss mindful eating inspirations and reflections in a virtual community.
