Mindfulness is a state and trait characterized by a focused attention and awareness of present experiences. Mindfulness has been shown to have positive effects in a number of areas including mental health and self-regulation. Recent research suggests that mindfulness may be beneficial in the eating realm. Dr. Meier will present research showing that mindfulness is associated with reduced food intake, healthier food choices, increased positive affect when eating chocolate, and improvements in disordered eating. Mindfulness appears to be a variable that benefits eating-related self-regulation.
