Eating is meant to be an enjoyable activity that provides nourishment and energy so we can live life to the fullest. And yet, our modern world has complicated our relationship with food. Faced with endless unhealthy choices and busy, stressed out lifestyles, food too often feels like a struggle.


Enter: Covid-19. Our already stressful world is turned on its head, and emotional eating is taking a toll. Have you been craving more cookies than usual? You're not alone, friend!


In this interactive masterclass, we'll explore the mechanisms behind emotional eating, learn simple strategies to uproot unhealthy patterns, and set a foundation of mindful habits to unlock the joy of eating in both the short and long term!
