Dr. Michelle May has discovered that many people, women particularly, struggle with a difficult love-hate relationship with food. Eating can become a way to cope with stress, time pressure, competing priorities, distraction, and caring for others. In addition, in our food-abundant, diet-obsessed culture, eating is often mindless, consuming, and guilt-inducing. During this podcast, we will explore mindful eating: an ancient mindfulness practice with profound modern implications and applications. We will talk about:
- Why diets don’t work.
- How to tune into your body wisdom to guide your eating.
- How to recognize environmental and emotional triggers for overeating.
- Why exercise should never be used as punishment for eating.
- How to build a self-care buffer zone.
