New Blog Promotes Mindful Eating
Are you conscious about how, what, when and why you eat? Lynn Rossy, Ph.D., is here to help.
Rossy has been teaching and researching mindfulness-based interventions targeting stress, pain, cancer, depression, and eating since 1999.
Her new blog, Tasting Mindfulness: Mindful Eating, Mindful Movement, Mindful Living, was created to be a support for people hoping to have a different relationship with their food, their bodies, their minds, and ultimately their lives. It grew out of a ten week program entitled “Eat for Life” that was developed by Dr. Lynn Rossy and Hannah Bush, M.A. and is offered to faculty and staff at the University of Missouri.
The philosophy is holistic and comprehensive–incorporating mindfulness, the intuitive wisdom of the body and mind, and educational components that support our efforts to be more healthy and conscious about our actions and behaviors.
Rossy has trained extensively at the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Healthcare, and Society in Worcester, MA. She received her doctorate and was trained as a health psychologist at the University of Missouri where she founded the Mindfulness Practice Center at MU in 2002—an innovative program that offers mindfulness classes, workshops, and presentations to students, faculty and staff.Posted on May 24, 2012.
