Kind Question Exercise for Calm and Recovery

love149Relying on your "kind question journal” is a powerful practice that helps you not only be more at ease around food but helps you build a more satisfying life.

How it works

Stop eating disorder symptoms with this mind/body exerciseating disorder: Exercise #3

Powerful emotions, some you don't even recognize, trigger your cravings and push you into your eating disorder behaviors. If you can postpone action, even for a moment, and move into an alternative frame of mind, you may be able to waylay those feelings and prevent an eating disorder episode.


This exercise, like any exercise, takes practice before you experience long term benefits. But you will receive short term benefits quickly.


Here's how it works.

Mindful rest for eating disorder recovery


FireWoodStone-DeniseCrossOnce a day (more if you wish) lay on the floor on a rug or quilt or yoga mat. Let the floor support you.

Let the ground support you.  Let the entire earth beneath you, support you.

Exercise #1 to Develop Calm & Ease Around Food

Exercise 1

At least three times a day – upon rising, mid day and before going to sleep say aloud
three times or more:

May I be free from danger.
May I have mental happiness.
May I have physical happiness.
May I live with kindness and ease.

(saying these statements slowly and quietly to yourself before you eat or drink
anything at anytime is also helpful.)

After a week of using these statements, add another three repetitions with a
slight shift:

May you be free from danger.
May you have mental happiness.
May you have physical happiness.
May you live with kindness and ease.

Please write in and let us know your experience and if you have any questions.

For example, some people find that when they say "I" in this exercise they can be harsh, yet when they say "you" that are more generous.  It takes practice to develop the ability to be kind and generous to yourself when you have an eating disorder.
