Mindful Eating

Mini #118
by Rhonda Miga

For as long as I have had children, I have been a fast eater, otherwise, I would not have eaten. Lately, I have also been an emotional eater. Put these two components together and it is a recipe for disaster. Fast eating often leads to overeating because we consume too much food before our brains receive the message to STOP eating. Fast eating while you are emotionally stressed can often lead to unsatisfied overeating. This habit can make a person unhealthy both mentally and physically! In this Mini I will share how awareness and knowledge can help us make decisions that support our mental and physical health. Through the use of exercises and worksheets, you’ll learn practical strategies to implement mindful eating in your own household.

Often our lives feel like a push-pull as we struggle to find a centered-place from which to make healthy decisions. We know that being balanced is a great goal–and a great concept… but how do we figure out what balance looks like for us? And how do we identify the boundaries we need to maintain that balance when we find it? In this Mini we will explore those questions and more with tips to help you find and maintain balance.

Effective Decision Making

Each day we are inundated with decisions. How we respond to those decisions is one of the single-most important factors in shaping our lives. Some decisions are little-others can be quite challenging. The more we hone our decision making skills, the better equipped we are to maximize each day and move forward in life. In this Mini we explore the  key factors of decision making as well as tools, handouts, and decision making techniques to help us hone our decision-making skills.
