What You’ll Do

When people find themselves eating to cope with problems, eating can become a problem itself. During her mindfulness-based workshop, Integrative Mental Health educator Jill Sheppard Davenport helps people overcome the cycle of anxiety-based eating. Participants who feel out of control with food or desire to eat cleaner but struggle with cravings will delve into the science of emotion and learn mindfulness strategies.

  • Study the Science of Emotion
    Davenport explains why people use food to cope, how it can lead to guilt, and what people can do to overcome this habit.

  • Four Strategies for Self-Improvement
    Participants will learn four strategies to help them overcome the feeling of being out of control with food, including designing their own personal “mindfulness pause.”

  • Accept Yourself
    Once the food cravings are out of the picture, participants will focus on finding peace with their body image and sussing out what they are truly craving.
