A Month of Mindful Eating Workshop Series
The University Counseling Center will present this four week program which begins on Tuesday,
July 1st from noon-1pm in UC Tejas 106B. Mindful eating involves paying close and full attention to the
process of eating. It also involves learning to tune into your body to gauge your true hunger level
and to guide you in choosing when and what you eat. By bringing full awareness to what we are eating,
we are able to reclaim a sense of control and enjoyment of food. This program is free and open to all
students, staff and faculty but pre-registration is required.
