Awareness Practice: Anxiety, Eating & Rebuilding Joy & Trust in Ourselves

Updated: Sep 15, 2023

This is the first in a series of videos "Awareness Practice with Paige."

In this video Paige shares about....

  • Her own recovery from an eating disorder as a teen.

  • The healing journey of eating and loving to eat food.

  • The continued practice of being present and how being present serves the body's needs because we are slowed down enough (e.g. neurologically regulated enough) to meet our own needs.

  • Paying attention to and honoring hunger cues, slowing down enough to eat, to notice bodily needs, and to plan ahead for eating on full days.

  • She explores the terms "healthy eating" and the how the creation of dichotomies and polarizing language about food can cause anxiety by mixing a basic need for nourishment with associations of disease, death, and fear.

  • Alternatives to this language and why it's important for parents, kids, teens, and anyone supporting others with eating issues.

  • Being gentle with yourself, your family, and the world around you as you begin this exploration.

  • Paige also describes Ellyn Satter's Division of Responsibility, and how it has been effective in her own home as a parent.

  • Learning to release anxiety and trust everyone in the family to meet their own needs.

  • Rekindling joyful eating, enjoyment of food, and intuitive eating.
