A Minute of Mindfulness with Mia – What is Mindfulness?

April 5th, 2022

Welcome to another minute of mindfulness with Mia.

What is this mindfulness thing?

Well, it’s really whatever you want it to be.

It’s taking a moment for whatever you might need. Maybe it’s stopping to smell the flowers. Maybe it’s noticing your heart race and then slow down. Maybe it’s to think about that problem in a more present, observant way without judgment. Maybe it’s climbing up a hill and just enjoying the view.

That’s mindfulness. So whatever you need mindfulness to be for you today, I hope you take a moment to practice.

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.
