Love Your Body Week Programs
Operational Beautiful - March 5, 4:30-6:00pm in the UC Flamingo Ballroom
Many students struggle with the way they look or how they feel about their bodies, with one out of three normal dieters progressing to pathological dieting. By recognizing the symptoms of eating disorders, and getting help, women and men can end their preoccupation with food and focus their efforts on developing healthy eating and exercise habits.
To raise awareness of this struggle, the week of February 26 is National Eating Disorders Awareness Week. As part of this national observance, BARE will be offering anonymous screenings for eating disorders (Breezeway at lunchtime on 2/27 and 2/29) as well as information about maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
The following week UM is celebrating Love Your Body Week (March 4 to March10) and will kick off the week with Operation Beautiful speaker Caitlin Boyle who will talk about her mission: Ttransforming the way you see yourself one post-it at a time. Come early for beverages and food at 4:00pm.
Mindful Eating Lunch - March 8, 12:30-1:30pm in the Wellness Center (Classroom 2)
Mindful eating is a way to reconnect to the pleasure of one of the most necessary things we do. This presentation is based on the seven attitudinal foundations of mindfulness and how they relate to our relationship with food, eating and self-nurturing.
The practice of bringing awareness to your attitude toward eating helps you to find balance with your food intake and teaches you to truly nourish yourself in body, mind and spirit. We will practice meditation techniques to cultivate a positive relationship with food. Lunch will be provided. For more information or questions contact Tammy Sifre at the Counseling Center 305 284-5511.
