Body as a Resource

An important skill in regulating eating behaviors is to learn to track your nervous system and learn alternative skills for regulation rather than using food behaviors for regulation. This class is designed to help you understand the connection between your hyperarousal and hypoarousal states, and how you may have used food behaviors to manage arousal in the past. You are also taught about the near and far sense of the body, and how your senses can also support regulation. This process allows you to partner with your body as a resource, rather than be at constant war with it. This class also discusses the concept of embodiment within yourself.
