There’s another new book out on mindful eating. Actually it’s called Mindless Eating. I haven’t read it yet, but anticipate that it’s about mindful eating, just describing it in reverse. It appears to be the latest in a flurry books on the subject, most of which I’ve read, and most of which I think are pretty good.
We’ve been teaching mindful eating at Green Mountain for years. As the nutritionist, I was focused on the eating part, but our behavior therapist Mimi Francis was focused on the larger issue of mindfulness. She has been a proponent of living mindfully for years, which, of course, mindful eating is a part.
That’s why when I saw a recent article written by nutritionist colleague Gretchen Newmark, I thought it would be a great addition to the articles we feature on our website (called FitBriefings). We titled it Mindfulness Through Meditation: Practicing Balance and Peace. As someone who’s been thinking about starting to meditate for a while now, I think it has some good insight into how to make meditation a habit. Let us know what you think!
