Healing food, weight, and body image issues, which are often lifelong, requires you to take a journey through the parts of yourself that are at the mercy of your emotions – the part of you that needs to “clean house,” to remove the things that no longer fit your current life that may have been leftover from your past.
EXERCISE: identify specific emotions and their body sensations. Then list a situation when you remember feeling each emotion strongly. Then list the body location and sensations associated with each emotion. Finally, see if you can identify nonverbal cues that are associated with each emotion. For example, think of your facial expressions, body posture, hand gestures, and other body language that indicate what you’re feeling.
