Mental Health Week: “Eat, experience, enjoy”
Today’s mindfulness meditation makes you more fully aware of your “hunger” experience. Guiding you through the entire process of eating mindfully, this practice will lead you to notice the food in front of you in a different way. Improving your relationship with eating may have benefits to your mental and physical health.
