In this video we explore common perceptions of food and what it means to each of us. The purpose is to understand how our eating habits fit into our emotional, physical and social lives. Mindfulness can be incorporated into our daily lives by simply bringing awareness into activities and routines we already practice, such as eating. We can use food to nourish our bodies and mind by paying more attention to how, why and when we eat!
Learn about the different ways in which you might experience the feeling of hunger. This video serves to encourage you to connect with the root cause of your hunger, for example: are you hungry because you see food or are you hungry because your stomach is aching for food? Once we start to bring awareness to where and why we feel hungry we can start to make mindful choices about how we consume food. Watch this video to find out all the different ways our body and minds experience hunger, and then start to tune into your own experience next time you feel hungry!
Tiara Cash, Senior Program Coordinator for the Center for Mindfulness, Compassion and Resilience at Arizona State University guides us through a step-by-step process of mindful eating practice.

TEMPE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - Students can soon come to the center for classes on mindfulness or just for a quiet place to reflect. Faculty can learn how to incorporate this into the classroom, so Sun Devils pay more attention to their studies, rather than their screens.
