Three-Part Series | Summer 2015 | Lynn Rossy Ph.D.
Part I: Concentration and Lovingkindness
Part II: Mindfulness - Sitting Makes Eating so Much Better!
Part III: Making Your Meditation Practice a Non-Negotiable Priority
Having a mindfulness meditation practice is not necessary to be a mindful eater, but it helps. Research shows that people who are stronger in mindfulness are more likely to eat intuitively, have better body image, and have less disordered eating. Mindfulness is a skill that helps you focus and attend to sensations like hunger, satiety, and taste, as well as increases kindness and self-compassion. Meditation practice is a method for strengthening your mindfulness. It’s like going to the gym for your mind. This three part series will take all of the mystery out of meditation, show you how to apply it to mindful eating, and help you establish a meditation practice of your own.
