How I discovered the power of reconnecting with my body (Rebodying)

I remember early on in my recovery I was with my mother. She said some random, offhand comment, I can’t even remember what it was, but I do remember it instantly triggered a surge of anger within me.
I was surprised at how intense it was. It struck me right to my core.

She left shortly afterward, and I was left, stewing in my inner discomfort.

My knee-jerk reaction was just to open the cupboards and eat everything in sight. I desperately wanted to EAT the feeling away.

Why?

Because at some level, I knew that binging would temporarily change my feelings. It would give me a short-term fix.

You see, for more than a decade I blocked out ANY uncomfortable emotions and feelings.

If I was annoyed or frustrated I’d always turn to food.

I’d simply numb out to my emotions like a crazed zombie.

It was not long before all bodily sensations and emotions became too intense.

I’d immediately turn to food to handle anything.

I forgot how to feel and food became my crutch.

I was so accustomed to blocking everything out through binging that I was now DISCONNECTED from my body.

My mind and body felt like two separate identities.

Years of blocking everything out meant I was unable to tune in and listen closely

 

  • I lost touch completely with my SATIETY cues.
  • I could no longer hear my true HUNGER cues
  • I didn’t know the difference if my body was thirsty, tired, hunger, satisfied.
  • My own bodily sensations became a murky mess of confusion.

Years of living with bulimia left me uncomfortable living in my own skin. I was so out of touch with myself, I almost felt detached from my own body.

I lived each day ‘tuned out’ and numb to any sensations happening in my body.

HOWEVER…

I had been doing great with my recovery up to this point, I didn’t want to throw all that progress away!

For the first time in years, I had been eating adequate, regular, nutritious meals. So I knew this binge urge had nothing to do with being hungry or needing nutrition.

This had EVERYTHING to do with how I felt in the moment and I instantly, habitually wanted to turn to food.

Out of touch with our own bodies

Most of us are chronically out of touch with our own bodies. In general, we are so busy rushing around doing things, we spend so much time trapped in our own head that we never really become aware of how our body feels.

Your body is always communicating with you. A steady stream of subtle feelings, sensations and feedback constantly informing you of its current state. The big question is, are you listening?

By continually ignoring the needs of your body you weaken your connection with it. The subtle communication signals between you and your body start to disappear.

Without these messages, your capacity to address your personal needs is diminished and this can lead to all sorts of problems. You overeat, you undereat, you become chronically stressed, you get burnt out. You become physically malnourished and emotionally drained. You experience binge urges, panic attacks and chronic pains.

Sadly this can leave many of us feeling empty, hungry for meaning, lonely, restless and somewhat lost.

And then I tried something different...

At that time, yoga had come into my life and I was learning to ‘feel’ my body in a new way.

I knew, I had to bite the bullet and stop taking the easy way out with binging on food.

  • Why couldn’t I just sit with a little frustration?
  • Why did that have to end up in a binge with the slightest upset?
  • Why do I have to block any discomfort at all?

Years of abusing myself, undermining myself, ignoring my needs clearly wasn’t working for me. That much was obvious. Wasn’t it Albert Einstein who said that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

So I decided to stop what I was doing, I closed the kitchen cupboard and I took a moment to PAUSE.

Now previously in this situation, I would already be halfway through a binge before I even recognised what was happening. So THIS was progress!

I knew I had to recognise what was going on at a deeper level.

So I tried to feel what my body’s actually experiencing —not an abstract idea of it, not a judgment, but the actual, living, breathing experience.

I’d never really allowed myself to experience these feelings before. I always instantly reacted, rather than just allow to feel.

It’s the difference between freaking out when the shower suddenly goes cold and staying inside to calmly explore the cold sensation.

It’s tapping into that deeper, less reactive you.

It actually started to become interesting.

I had so many unanswered questions.

  • What was this intense feeling I was determined to run from?
  • How does the binge urge feel in this moment, without my imagination running amok?
  • What happens if I don’t run?

I noticed my breath was fast, my heart rate was up and my muscles were jittery. The intense emotional response had instantly sent my body into fight-or-flight mode.

Luckily I had been exploring some yoga breathing practises designed to calm the nervous system.

So I began to apply my yoga breathing.

After a few breathes I noticed a drop in the intensity of the feelings. My body was coming out of fight or flight. After 5 minutes the urge and feelings had mostly passed and I was able to go about my day. 

That was a big moment for me.

It was through deepening my yoga practice that allowed me to begin this journey deeper into myself and explore all these unmet areas that I had blocked out for over a decade.

I learned new tools that allowed me to feel again in a safe way.

As I learned to regulate my own nervous system through breath and movement, I finally learned how to navigate my emotions without turning to food.

Over the years, as I continued to learn more about yoga.

  • I’ve completed a 200-hour teacher training course 
  • I’ve trained in yoga for PTSD with the Minded Institute.
  • I went on to complete a further 200 hours last year to become a practitioner and Therapeutic Children’s Yoga Teacher.

Through years of training I’ve gathered a toolbox of useful strategies I regularly use with my coaching clients. I call this Rebodying Tools, as its all about improving the connection between you and your body. 

Now I want to share my knowledge of how to use these Rebodying tools with you.

How Body Work for Binge Eating Works

I know that feeling painful emotions, not surprisingly, can be painful. This is why so many of us are tempted to binge on food to suppress and numb these feelings.

But, as we know, this strategy is not very helpful in the long term. Avoiding emotions becomes a prison because the more you avoid, the weaker you feel, the more your coping skills diminish and the more it shrinks your life.

Learning how to reconnect with our body and emotions safely can have a profound impact on our lives.

When you become more comfortable with your emotions

 

  • You don’t have to spend all your energy pushing the emotion away or fighting it
  • You allow yourself to feel the emotion, you start to learn about the qualities of the emotion, become familiar with it and eventually become skilled in its management
  • You will realize that although not fun, experiencing negative emotions takes less effort than bingeing on food in an attempt to avoid them
  • Finally, when you accept a negative emotion, it is usually nowhere near as destructive, uncomfortable or challenging as you may have imagined. Put simply, it doesn’t feel so bad.

The more you practice these Rebodying tools, the more clarity and understanding you’ll have of your internal emotional landscape. Your own motivations and drives become clearer to you. Your true needs and wants become apparent. Your core values become more defined. 

You’ll begin to discover who you really are, deep down, underneath all that baggage that life tends to throw on top of us.

Not just in a conceptual way, but in a way that you can physically detect, moment by moment, throughout your day.

You won’t get some glaring flashing sign or signal, it’s much subtler than that, just a general feeling of when something is “right” and when something is “wrong” for you. A sort of deep sense of wisdom. You’ll just know, deep in your soul. Once you get a clearer indication of what makes you happy you can start to align your life accordingly to achieve more of it.
It truly can become life changing.

How can Body Work help you?

Here are a few questions you can ask yourself to discover if the Rebodying Tools course would be beneficial for you.

  • When you feel angry, sad, or frustrated do you turn to food?
  • Do you feel a little disconnected from your body?
  • Do you feel powerless to binge urges?
  • Do you have a hard time knowing when you are truly hungry or satiated?
  • Do you struggle with body awareness?
  • Is your digestion system sluggish after eating?
  • Do you have a difficult time unwinding and managing stress in your day?
  • Do you have a challenging time knowing what the body is asking for?
  • Do you self-sabotage when stressed out, perhaps turning to food or alcohol?
  • Do you struggle with self-care?

If you answered yes to any of the questions, then Rebodying, yoga & mindfulness can be helpful for you.

When I asked a client to do some REBODYING during a BINGE URGE and write down the experience, here’s what came back...

“The binge urge came on during my commute back from work. 

I could feel a tightness in my belly, there was a strange feeling that didn’t feel like hunger. 

It felt like a flush of irritation had flooded my system, my upper back and chest felt tense, and my breathing become quicker. 

I didn’t like how I felt and I knew binging would make me feel different. 

But like you said to me in our last call, I knew I was trying to change my state using food! 

I could feel my heart rate up and when I checked in with my face I noticed I was frowning and my jaw was tight. 

I was also aware of my hands, without even releasing I was scrunching my fingers up making fists! I’ve never been aware of any of this before. 

This awareness was eye-opening and I used the REBODYING tools you suggested.

I tried not to binge but I felt a pull towards the food. I started to eat and my heart rate went up with excitement and fear. 

I kept mindful as I ate the food. This is something I’ve never done before. I kept mindful of the taste, the flavours of the food, the colours and my quality of thoughts as they rushed past.

It was amazing the things I noticed. I stopped myself entering the trance-like state and I grounded myself with the exercises. 

I then managed to pull away from the binge!! I couldn’t believe it. It was the first time ever!!”
