My "homework" this week is to set up a scale of 1 to 10, 10 indicated I took care of my self, mentally and physically. A 1 would indicate I resorted to self-harm such as binging and purging or restricting or using laxatives or drugs.
I have to decided every night how my day went, and if I have a lot of "good" days, I get a reward.
I have NO idea what to give myself as a reward! Before, planning a great b/p was my reward, but it was also my punishment.
So yeah, healthy reward system ideas would be much appreciated =]
I dont do the whole mani-pedi/treat yourself out to a spa because I have no one to really go with.
Clothes shopping just gives me anixety, massages are expensive in nyc, my neighborhood is too dangerous to take a "peaceful walk"
This is a toughie...
Edit// Better question: what reward would you give yourself if you made weekly improvements on recovery? The idea is to slowly appreciate other things in life besides resorting back to eating disordered behavior.
