Mindful Eating for Workplace Wellness

Michelle May


As evidence mounts that a focus on weight loss does more harm than good, workplace wellness programs need a better way to help employees attain optimal well-being. Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating for Workplace Wellness offers a non-diet, weight-neutral, mindfulness-based approach for organizations ready to make the shift.
