Mindfulness Monday: Mindful Eating for the New Year and Beyond

For many of us, the new year means a resolution to change our eating habits and lose weight, often driven by the extra pounds put on during the holidays. While there is often an initial burst of efforts in the form of restrictive dieting or intense exercise, research tells us one of the best ways to lose weight and keep it off it to start by building small, sustainable habits. In the world of Behavioral Weight Loss, one of those habits is mindful eating, and that is the skill we introduce today.

Before you hit play, be sure to grab a small piece of food to use during this exercise.
