Intro to Mindful Eating

Mindfulness teaches us to be fully present for our life in a kind, curious and nonjudgmental way. Bringing this type of focused nonjudgmental attention to the experience of eating can potentially transform our relationship to food, eating and ourselves. Session participants will be introduced to the basics of mindful eating, an approach that research suggests can improve unhealthy eating behaviors and enhance the joy of food!  

Participants will need to bring four raisins to the session for an eating exercise

Audience: CTI Induction Coaches and Candidates.

Nutrition to Health

Eating a nutritious, healthy, and balanced meal plan can provide a wide range of health benefits.  Nutritious, healthy eating means eating from a variety of foods that give you the nutrients you need to maintain your health, feel good, sleep well, and help improve energy for work, exercise, and play.  These nutrients include but are not limited to protein, carbohydrates, fat, water, vitamins, and minerals.

In general, healthy eating can help improve your quality of daily life, and this is important for everyone.
