      About the Event

      Mindfulness and Mindful Eating are on the rise and it is wonderful that these concepts are getting more attention. However, as more people are introduced to these practices, there is often a misunderstanding of what Mindful Eating actually is.

      Learning Objectives

      1. Define mindful eating 
      2. Distinguish between mindful eating and intuitive eating 
      3. Understand what is not mindful eating
