Thankful for teaching-Thankful Thursday

This weekend will be the end of my 3rd semester of teaching Mindful Eating and Nourishment to nutrition grad students and coaching students at Maryland University of Integrative Health. It’s definitely been a whirlwind, and I’m so glad I jumped in. While I’ve done a lot of community and online classes, grad school is a really different rhythm, and blending the science with meditation practice has been both challenging and exhilarating. In many ways, it has really pushed me to grow—especially since it’s such a distance away, and I generally avoid driving whenever possible.muih bunny
I knew I’d enjoy teaching. I didn’t realize how much! Teaching helps me learn the material in a much different way than when I’m working one-on-one or teaching online, and the students are amazing as well. Of course, when there are 40 final projects on my desk next week, I’ll remember why I don’t teach more classes, but I’m so glad to have this opportunity.

The little bunny above was out rabitting during my class and hanging out by the door until he got everyone’s attention. Clearly he wanted attention, so I got a picture of him after class. He was so tiny!

About Cheryl Harris

Life played a funny trick on me. I've studied nutrition for years, and much to my surprise, found out that I could manage many of my health issues via diet. I've been GF for years, and I've got a bunch of allergies and sensitivities. But it definitely doesn't keep me from cooking, baking and enjoying my food. Thanks for stopping by.

  1. I’m so glad you’re enjoying your teaching so much, Cheryl! I’m sure you’re a gift to those students! Love the bunny, too. I’m a bunny lover from way back. ;-)
