Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy Article in the Telegraph

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/8483403/Life-could-be-like-a-box-of-chocolates.html

This is a great article summarizing how Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy can be very effective in providing you with some concrete and simple tools to learn how to "be in the moment" and get mastery over depression, anxiety and your eating habits...and there is a way to integrate chocolate into the whole process!! What could be better than that?

I often get asked how Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy can help with binge eating or "emotional eating". Essentially, it can provide people with fantastic tools to become more aware of eating patterns and why they are eating. For example, mindless eating (i.e. out of boredom), is a major problem because it adds calories without providing much pleasure or satisfaction. This can be one of the easiest types of maladaptive eating patterns to get rid of because you really don't get much out of it...there are very few positives in engaging in this type of pattern. Eating mindfully means eating slowly and paying close attention to taste of food in your mouth, plus the feel of food in your stomach. Regardless of why you start eating, try starting to pay attention while you eat. By eating mindfully and monitoring fullness, you can prevent many eating episodes from turning into over-eating episodes that result from ignoring fullness. When you are more in touch with your body because of increased attention and awareness, you will be far more attuned to what it is telling you and better equipped to respond appropriately. Learning to listen to your body is vital to improving your health & wellness, your relationships, and the quality of your life.
