mindful eating

Today i realized, I’m unsure what to do. Do I take the chance of being buried next? Or rather do I try to help others in that position?

The simple answer would probably be to help others and not be selfish. But eating disorders get the best of so many people. You believe you can do both, then wind up dead. That’s the harsh reality of it, sorry.

My ED is such a selfish bastard. “Oh, your mom made you a nice dinner? Wrap it up and throw it away.” If you find someone hiding their food, seek help.

Sometimes mindful eating can be helpful when trying to enjoy a meal with family. Focus on every sense:

  • Sight – What shape is it?
  • Smell – Does it smell good?
  • Touch – Does it have a texture?
  • Taste – Is it sweet?
  • Sound – Is it crunchy?
  • This was a coping method i learned in a hospital that helps to ground yourself. If you try it, let me know if it works for you! If not, what’s your favorite coping skill?
