About this course:

More than 30 years of research supports the many health benefits of mindfulness-based practices. Emerging research now supports mindful eating as a way of changing our relationship with food. Mindfulness appears to improve emotional regulation. Because much of overeating is driven by stress and emotion, mindfulness training can help us reduce our drives to overeat. In this course, students examine the science supporting mindfulness practices, compassion, gratitude, and forgiveness. Throughout the course, students gain practical experience by practicing meditations and eating exercises supported by NIH-funded research.
