Mindful Morsels: Mindful Eating - February 19, 12 pm, HSC North 1901

The Mindful Morsels series continues with a session specifically for School of Nursing faculty, staff & students.

Carry on 2018 with more skills to eat well. Our food intake is our primary contact with our environment. Many of us eat because of the environmental cues and not because we are hungry. There are ample pleasures associated with our food intake. However, we frequently eat distracted while working on our computer, reading the newspaper, watching television, or driving.  We finish our meals without appreciation, satiety, or satisfaction. Often, it is not what we are eating that is making us overweight and contributing to disease, but rather what is eating us.

Mindful Eating is a way to bring more awareness, pleasure and control into daily living.  Mindfulness can ground us in the present moment. 

Participants are encouraged to bring their lunch, which will be incorporated into the session. 


Series Objectives:

Connect principles of non-judgment, patience, curiosity, trust, and acceptance to personal wellness and professional excellence

Recognize opportunities to increase self-awareness, connection, and compassion

Incorporate mindfulness techniques into practical internal processes

Relate mindful growth to reflect in external environments and approach to patient-centered care.
