Talking point

If you followed along with Melissa and Richard’s demonstration, within the Comments, consider sharing with other learners your experience of mindfully eating the food you chose and the things you noticed from eating this way.

If you didn’t take part in the demonstration, how do you think the demonstration will impact the way you now think about eating your food?

Also consider reading and commenting on contributions made by other learners or following learners with similar interests as you. You can also ‘like’ comments or follow other learners throughout the course.

Filtering comments

Comments on a step can be ‘filtered’ which helps you access them in a way that’s best for you. You can do this by selecting comments by All comments, Bookmarked, Your comments or Following from the drop-down menu in the comments section of the step. You can can also sort by Newest, Oldest or Most liked.

Mentioning other learners in your comments

When replying to a comment, you can also mention other learners that are taking part in the comment thread. You can do this by entering the learner’s profile name as part of your reply. For example, @User3320607 That’s an excellent example. @User4499578 What do you think?
