Coping with Triggers for Holiday Overeating - Mindfully

About Coping with Triggers for Holiday Overeating - Mindfully

The holidays are a time of celebration, reminiscing, and of course, stress – all potential triggers for overeating. During this seminar we’ll explore mindful eating strategies for dealing with your most common triggers.

Do you look forward to the holidays but dread the "inevitable" holiday overeating?

Food is central to our holiday celebrations: family gatherings, parties, and chocolates and mince pies in the office. Whilst some people look forward to the festive season with open arms, many of us approach it with some anxiety and trepidation. Not only is the sheer abundance and variety of food a concern, stressful family dynamics, fatigue, self-imposed expectations and perfectionism can also be triggers for guilt-ridden overeating.

Whether you want to avoid overeating and gaining those extra pounds, you need to control your blood sugar (for example, if you have diabetes), or you simply wish to consume only what your body requires, the holiday season can be challenging.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. Using mindfulness - non-judgemental, moment-to-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, and surroundings - can really help us navigate this trigger-laden environment. Mindful eating skills can change and stall unhelpful eating choices and patterns.

In this seminar we’ll explore strategies to deal with some of the most common triggers for festive overeating.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Coping with Triggers for Holiday Overeating - Mindfully are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
