EDIT Principle #4: Give To Your Self

Start your day with some “Soul Food” to nourish your Intuitive Therapist (IT) within you. Eating Disorder Intuitive Therapy (EDIT)™ involves making “thought ED-ITs” — to shift your focus from the voice of your Eating Disorder (ED) to the voice of recovery shared by the Intuitive Therapist (IT) within your core essence. At first, it might seem like to only voice you can hear is ED — chattering on about what you should or shouldn’t eat, how much you have to exercise, how you should look, and so on. Recovery is about remembering and reclaiming your inner wisdom, which helps you move forward on a healthy path — how can you turn up the volume of this “voice of your soul,” so you can ED-IT your way to complete recovery? “Soul Food” is anything that helps you feel “nourished from within,” and helps you to hear the voice of your Intuitive Therapist (IT) more clearly. When you take time to feed your soul every morning, you’ll notice that you feel more connected with your intuition throughout the day, and you’re able to make decisions to support your recovery with ease.  Your morning “Soul Food” doesn’t have to take long to enjoy.  You might pause to watch the sunrise, try a few minutes of meditation, read a few pages in a book with positive messages, or create an affirmation for your day.  The key is that you Give To Your Self before you move on with your day and give to others.  When you are nourished from within, and your soul is satisfied, you won’t have a need for eating disorder behaviors.  Try some “Soul Food” as your first...
