When it comes to dealing with an eating disorder, being self-aware – or mindful – can be one of your most important tools to recovery. Being aware of your thoughts seems like a simple concept… But all too often, we refuse to listen to the parts of our minds that tell us to make healthy choices.
Practicing mindfulness on a regular basis can help you learn about what makes you tick as an individual.
Islam and Eating Disorders founded in 2012 – run by Maha Khan, the blog creates awareness of Eating Disorders in the Muslim world, offers information and support for sufferers and their loved ones.
Any good Eating Disorder treatment program includes a component that helps patients learn how to avoid relapsing.
Being mindful of your thoughts and feelings (and realizing how these thoughts are subsequently affecting your behavior) is essential to getting healthy. When we start feeling overwhelmed by stress, the disordered thinking automatically takes over and it becomes “too difficult” to be mindful about the food choices we’re making.
There are many ways to become more self-aware (such as yoga, mantra meditation, or music meditation).
Branch out during these quiet times and start thinking about the things that you personally like about your life.


This type of aftercare is needed considering that most patients  in recovery from eating disorder could relapse. When we begin to shift our point of view and our approach to adapt a mindful attitude and way of thinking, we will see changes in not only our spiritual health but also in our mental and physical health. Everywhere you look these days, there are “quick and easy” fixes being offered for every conceivable problem in life. As much as we would love to snap our fingers and make that part of us disappear, it just doesn’t work that way. Write these things down in list-form and post it in a prominent place so you can see it every day. Incorporating mindfulness into our lives and into our eating habits gives us the ability to make real and meaningful changes to our lives by making us aware of what we’re doing and by showing us what changes we need to put into place. A recent study concluded that the inclusion of mindfulness therapy in aftercare and relapse prevention work leads to the greatest long-term success in avoiding relapse. Things will become easier, we will become more cognizant of our surroundings, emotions, behaviors and even words.
But when it comes to truly conquering an eating disorder, quick and easy just does not cut it.


It would be wonderful to offer a quick fix to overcome such a serious issue, but it is not practical (nor safe) to do so. Please watch this video on Mindfulness from Muslim prespective, it can really influence your lifestyle and thinking.
Being mindful about your eating habits can help you discover new paths of healing that will lead you forward in positive ways.
Even though many people fall “victim” to eating disorders, it doesn’t mean that you will forever be a victim… You DO have choices and you CAN make steps to heal. Be attentive to your surroundings – their sounds and smells, the important little things in our immediate environments that we so very often overlook.
When shame and worry start to creep into your mind, take a deep breath and simply let them go. Now ask yourself: Without the worries from the past and the fears about the future weighing on my mind, how am I feeling right now?
