Meditate on Lincoln Avenue starts its 12-week meditation course this week, and this may come in handy to you New Year's resolution-ers. According to Meditate owner Andrew Shykofsky, "we have found that a lot of people overeat when emotionally out of balance...Spending 15 or 20 minutes in meditation has a calming effect, and thus the urge to eat too much is reduced."
