Down-to-earth mindfulness: Mindful eating

Active Pause is about the simple, down-to-earth ways in which we step out of “automatic pilot” to be more actively involved in what we do. In other words, we see “mindful” as “engaged” – – the opposite of being disengaged, of doing a task mindlessly.

So, one of the things you will see over time in our newsletter, is people sharing specific approaches and experiences. The key word here is “experience”: This is not dogma, this is what people actually do, and how it works for them. This is an invitation for you to experiment with it, and to adapt it to your needs.

In this spirit, Linda Ciotola is sharing the approach to mindful eating that she practices and teaches.

There is an audio conversation with her, together with a printable PDF transcript, at:http://blog.activepause.com/2017/01/ciotola-mindful-eating/

Linda has also prepared a “self coach tool” about mindful eating, also a printable PDF, that you can find at: http://activepause.com/zug/selfcoachtools/Ciotola-Mindful-Eating.pdf

Linda Ciotola is a Certified TEP (trainer-educator-practitioner of psychodrama) and the co-author of a book on healing eating disorders.
