What is Mindful Eating and How Can It Help Me? Podcast Episode 23 with Catherine Russo Epstein

Introduction to Mindful Eating

Mindfulness is awareness of the present moment without judgement. When we apply mindfulness to eating it helps us to slow down and appreciate our food.

What is Mindful Eating?

Mindfulness is awareness of the present moment without judgement.

In simple terms, that means being aware of your thoughts, feelings and emotions without judgement.

Mindful eating is bringing mindfulness to our eating.

Eating and food is an emotional experience for all of us (to a bigger or smaller way.)

As you become aware of these emotions and feelings around food, you can change them.

Some Emotional Eating Is Normal

How to Love Your Life Without Alcohol. Podcast Episode 16

Alcohol is widely accepted in society today. It’s considered normal to drink large amounts of alcohol because it’s fun and helps us to socialise.

We’ve all been there. I don’t know about you but I look back on my University years and my liver shudders. Medical students are some of the worst offenders when it comes to alcohol consumption.
