Mindful Eating Workshop for Teen Girls with EMPATH Coaching - Monday, February 18, 2019
Kids have natural curiosity and enjoy making discoveries about food. Think of the life-long benefits of helping teens find balance and joy in eating! Get ready to have fun, laugh, and be creative, in this experiential workshop.
Research shows that children who begin dieting early are at greater risk of eating disorders later in life. Mindful eating helps shift a young person’s focus from external cues (calorie counts, airbrushed pictures in fashion ads, pop stars and idols) to natural internal cues of hunger and satiety.
Young people in their teens are assaulted by a showering of media through multiple technologies that demand their attention and provide distraction at the same time. Striving for acceptance, love and success while trying to cope with peer pressure about body image can result in harmful relationships with food that follow teens throughout their life.
In this workshop attendees with be active participants in mindfulness exercises that explore how, what, when and why they eat. We can learn how to help children navigate the world of food and eating through non-judgmental listening and simple mindful eating exercises that can assist them in relating differently to food and eating.
