Women's Eating Disorders


Mindfulness, the practice of purposely focusing one's attention on the present moment and accepting it without judgment, can be extremely helpful in the process of eating disorder recovery. Whereas eating disorders preoccupy people and take them out of the moment, mindfulness helps people re-engage fully in activities, savor the pleasurable moments of life, and create a greater capacity to tolerate distress.

By focusing on the here and now, many people who practice mindfulness find that they are less likely to get caught up in worries about the future or regrets over the past, are less preoccupied with concerns about their body, success, and self-esteem, and are better able to form deep connections with others. Therefore, Center For Discovery offers a variety of mindfulness activities to support clients with staying grounded and present in the moment and to increase tolerance for difficult feelings that will surface during the treatment process. Such activities include:

  • Yoga - Yoga opens the body, clears the mind, and provides space for meditation and harmony between the mind and body.
  • Meditation - Meditation is the process of being lead to calm awareness from within. It provides a sense of grounding and insight into one's current emotional process.
  • Relaxation - Relaxation techniques are provided as a tool for stress management and for tolerating and calming anxiety.
  • Spirituality - Spirituality invites the element of meaning and “knowing one-self" during the therapy process.
