A Minute of Mindfulness with Mia – Think of a Word

December 20, 2021

Welcome to another minute of mindfulness with Mia! It’s the holiday season and often we have a lot going on, especially in our mind and our chest.

Mindfulness is a great return to the moment because we can find whatever we need in that moment. So I’m going to welcome you to think about,

What do you need right now?

What would be nice?

Think of a word that represents it.

For me, it’s calm.

I get a little anxious at this time of year. So I’m going to think of that word calm for the next 30 seconds. I invite you to think about what word do you need more?

That’s it.

That’s 30 seconds to think of something that you need and bring it into the moment.

Thank you.

What is ARFID and how can it help children who suffer from eating disorders?

Often, the children who suffer from ARFID experience a choking sensation from the smells or the feeling of certain foods in their mouths. Vomiting is also not unusual. The experience of these sensations leads to the child avoiding or restricting certain foods. Malnutrition then becomes an issue with this disorder.
