Most of us struggle between maintaining our body weight and indulging in the occasional #foodporn. While dieting is a viable option, depriving ourselves of the food that we enjoy may cause unnecessary stress to our psychological health and wellbeing.
Instead, practicing mindful eating is more effective as it helps you to gain control and awareness of your eating habits. Grounded in a form of meditation called mindfulness, it transforms the way you think about food and it sets the stage for a lifetime of healthy eating.
Kickstart mindful eating by joining us on this food hunt at Downtown Gallery!
