In this teleconference Ronna Kabatznick
, Ph.D., examines speaking habits as a form of nourishment or depletion. Critical speech ("I hate my body") and speech that blames ("I am so lazy and pathetic") are non-physical ways of feeding ourselves discouragement and negativity. This type of mental food is heavy. It adds unnecessary emotional weight and creates a fixed identity about “who I am; what I like and what I don’t.” Mindful speech, on the other hand, is light and nourishing. It’s absent of sarcasm, criticism and exaggeration. Statements such as, “I’m willing to try new ways of eating and relating to food,” are flexible and encouraging. It is easy to digest and helps develop the confidence that empowers change.
1. Learn the three ways we ingest speech;
2. Become mindful of the impact of speech on appetite, self-image and self-esteem;
3. Learn the components and the benefits of a going on “negative speech fast.”
This teleconference is free and open to everyone interested in mindful eating, including professionals from all disciplines.
