Freedom Actions to embrace in 2017

Many people with ED are approaching new year with fear instead motivation. Action is the best antidote for any fears. In our Tuesday’s Recovery Class we were exploring all the different actions that could speed up recovery this year. Here are few examples:

  • Stop focusing on the negative details, instead, magnify all positive aspects of a situation and collect good news
  • Think outside the box and see the bigger picture
  • See fears as challenges & redirected to courage
  • Let go of comparing and cherish uniqueness and creativity
  • See sensitivity as an asset and a gift, not as barrier or obstacle
  • Let go of being a victim and enjoy being a survivor instead
  • Let go seeing things are black or white, good or bad
  • Expect good things to happen to you and others instead of pre-programming disasters and using ‘What if…
  • See mistakes as part of being human and turn them to valuable learning
  • Eliminate mind reading and being an expert on how people think about you without their saying so
  • Stop taking personal responsibility for everybody’s reactions, every situation, event or incident that goes wrong around you, to justify your guilt
  • Let go of seeing the world from the ‘fair’ or ‘not fair’ stand
  • Practice 3RR – respect, R – recognition, R – reassurance
  • Let go of holding people responsible for your pain and trying to change them.
  • Taking responsibility for your own happiness and letting belief that your happiness depend on other people
  • Learn from the past, enjoy the present and look forward to the future. See the future as a bunch of discoveries where you are the one to choose the direction you want to go in
  • Feelings become signals and helpful information in directions, they are not part of your personality and identity
  • Evaluate behaviour rather the self
  • Believe that you and everybody else have some talents. Learn to use yours in your life and for the world
  • Eliminate ‘should’, ‘must’ and ‘have to’. Embrace choices & learn when to say ‘No’
  • Focusing on body experience instead body appearance. See your body as an instrument of vital living
  • Practice and value self-care
  • See insecurities as your directions
  • Hungry – Angry – Lonely – Tired
  • Nourish yourself regularly
  • Focus on energy and vitality instead of thinness and fitness
  • See food as fuel
  • Learn to L – Love   I – Interest F – Fun/fulfilment E – Enjoyment
  • Having clarity of boundaries
  • Learning to act unconditionally
  • Add your own suggestions ……..
