Mindfulness

Mindfulness is an aspect of Buddhism that is often used in therapy. It incorporates being aware of your surrounds, your thoughts and feelings, and being present in the moment. This is very useful for people suffering from eating disorders, as we often try to block out our thoughts and feelings; pushing away our hunger or our satiation, ignoring our real feelings. Mindfulness helps us to counteract the eating disorder in a healthy way.
