ED-IT the “Movies in your Mind”

ED-IT the “Movies in your Mind”

Create a “movie in your mind” of the recovery success you truly desire. Whether you are aware of it or not, you create an image in your mind of anything you do before you do it. Imagine this sceario.  It’s morning, and you start thinking about what you could have for breakfast.  You’re aware of two different choices you could make, as you “see” two different “movies in your mind”… Intuitive Therapist (IT) movie:  You see yourself having a bowl of cereal with strawberries and milk. Eating Disorder (ED) movie:  You see yourself binge eating on the entire box of cereal. Which of these two mental movies would you prefer to be your actual reality?  Be aware of the “movies in your mind,” and pause to create a mental picture of success.  If you become aware of a desire to binge, purge, or engage in any eating disorder behavior, pause to notice the image you have in your mind.  Next, create a new image which offers a healthy alternative.  ED-IT the “movie in your mind.” See this healthy image as clearly as you can, and see yourself acting on your healthy choice.  See your success and it is yours!

EDIT Principle #5: Believe In Your Self

A Day in the Life of Complete Recovery from Eating Disorders! As part of your eating disorder recovery, you have learned very much about yourself, your feelings and your true needs.  You have gradually let go of binge eating, purging, restrictive eating, and any other eating disordered behavior.  You find yourself at peace with food, able to eat intuitively while trusting your body to be a healthy weight.  You have discovered positive ways of  dealing with any challenges you encounter.  You remember all of the significant people and situations, serving as guides on your path of freedom.  You have created anchors, which symbolize what recovery means to you.  You have a range of emotions as you reflect upon your eating disordered past, and experience its ending.  You witness the sunrise, with the eyes of your soul, and you welcome your new beginning.  This day and every day, you are free! At Positive Pathways, we believe that complete recovery from eating disorders is possible — and your journey of recovery can continue on an ongoing basis by practicing this final EDIT™ principle.
