I believe that many great accomplishments start with a solid plan.
For instance, before I launched my private therapy practice-I came up with a business plan. I attribute much of my current success, to the plan that I created.
I also have made monthly goal lists for a long time and the interesting thing is that looking back on my old lists-many of the dreams I had listed-actually came to fruition. From writing for The Huffington Post, to speaking at The BEDA/NEDA conference, to having a thriving therapy practice helping people with eating disorders.
The Importance of Creating a Recovery Plan
The thing is, when we get very clear about what we want, as well as potential obstacles, and gain insight into our current situation, incredible things can happen.
The reality is that often the things that we focus on expand. This can work in either helpful or unhelpful ways. For instance, let’s say that you have the core belief “I am such a failure.” You likely will start to see “evidence” of your belief everywhere.
The reason behind this phenomenon is that we have a reticular activating system within the neocortex of our brain. This system helps us to filter important information and impacts what we focus on. It heightens our awareness of certain things.
This applies to coming up with a specific plan, as it heightens our awareness of opportunities, ideas, and resources, that can aid up in achieving our goals. For instance, coming up with a plan for your recovery from an eating disorder, can help you to attune to aspects of your environment, that could help you in your recovery.
Creating a plan gives you solid goals, action steps, and mindfulness of your current state. I believe that these aspects are so critical when it comes to recovering form your eating disorder
I have the privilege to be able to help clients to recover from eating disorders, and they inspire me with their strength everyday.
However, I wanted to be able to reach more people. There was this strong voice inside me, which said that I needed to create a resource for people to set them up on the path to recovering from their eating disorder.
That’s why I created, “The Eating Disorder Recovery Road Map," a 15 page workbook plus guided audio, which enables you to create your own personalized recovery plan.
I think of myself as someone with pretty high energy (shoutout to ample carbs, fat, and protein!), but creating this resource was unlike anything I’ve done before.
I woke up, had this idea, and felt driven to put it out into the world. Somehow amidst, a full day of seeing clients-I used my breaks and time before/after work, to create this resource-that I’m incredibly proud of.
Struggling with constant thoughts about food and your body is exhausting.
