Today’s article is all about helping you with your recovery.
Let me recommend fours things that will support your recovery from binge eating.
1. Understanding your main binge eating triggers.
Shed light on what’s going on when you want to binge.
- What’s pushing you to eat with that sense of urgency?
- What emotions are there when you binge?
- In what moments, situations are you most often, when you feel the urge to binge? Or who are you with?
2. Addressing your concerns about weight and body shape.
- What beliefs do you have about what your body shape and weight should be like?
- How concerned are you right now about what other people might think or say about your looks?
- How much is the number on the scale influencing the way you value yourself as a person?
3. Finding out what your passions and hobbies are and do more of them.
- When was the last time you did something just for fun, or for the pleasure of learning?
- How much time do you make to recharge and rest your mind and your body?
- Do you know what brings joy to your days? And, if you know, are you making time for it?
4. Establishing a pattern of regular eating all throughout the day.
Skipping meals and restricting your food intake plays an important role in keeping the bingeing going.
Avoiding the foods you like because you feel they’re bad and should be avoided only triggers more binges.
- Are you giving yourself the time to eat your meals?
- What percentage of your time do you take during your average day?
- What are you avoiding but would really love to eat?
Lots of food for thought (ops, sorry for the pun!) in today’s article.
