The Value of Teaching Children Mindfulness

The Value of Teaching Children Mindfulness | The (Mind) Full Plate | Scoop.it
This summer I worked in a middle school camp. I taught yoga to a group of students that you would think would be uninterested. A group of “baseball jocks” that instead fought to be my assistant during our daily yoga practice.


...by teaching them a few tricks, we can teach our kids to slow down and enjoy their food and they won’t need as much. The kids that drink their coke in under a minute and are grabbing for another are not even noticing the taste of what they are drinking and on top of that they are packing on empty calories.  One trick I taught myself to stop guzzling or shoveling was to put down my glass or can between each sip.  This also works when eating.  Put your fork or spoon down on the table between bites.

Pilot study: Mindful Eating and Living (... [Complement Ther Med. 2010] - PubMed - NCBI

PubMed comprises more than 22 million citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books. Citations may include links to full-text content from PubMed Central and publisher web sites.
Dr. Amy Fuller's insight:

This pilot study enrolled 10 overweight members of the YMCA with 2 hour training in mindful eating and living (MEAL) weekly for 6 weeks. 

Compared to the information gathered at the beginning, participants "showed statistically significant increases in measures of mindfulness and cognitive restraint around eating, and statistically significant decreases in weight, eating disinhibition, binge eating, depression, perceived stress, physical symptoms, negative affect, and C-reactive protein." 

Basically, mindful eating means healthy living.

MINDFUL EATING vs. EMOTIONAL EATING « The Healthy Planet

MINDFUL EATING vs. EMOTIONAL EATING « The Healthy Planet | The (Mind) Full Plate | Scoop.it

The void we feel inside that we’re trying to fill with food might be a need for connection with others, or to find a more meaningful job or for spirituality or a need for more fun in our lives. No matter how much food we try to stuff into that void, it will remain empty because food is not the solution to the problem.

Dr. Amy Fuller's insight:

Sometimes our emotions are so powerful we use food to try and change our feelings. Mindfulness tools allow the perfect solution for emotional eating. We eat and enjoy our food instead of eating our emotions!
