In this edition of EmpowHER's "HER Health Minute", Michelle King Robson, the voice of women's health, shares a tip about how doing yoga can help women living with diabetes.

Dr. Johanna DeStefano with TGen says, “Meditative movement helps increase awareness around hunger and fullness. Women sometimes use food to medicate after a fight with the spouse or a bad day with kids and we may not pay attention to why we are eating.”
So while walking or running may be physical exercise, there may not be the same mind-body benefits that come from meditative movement.
