In eating disorder recovery, empowering mantras can be life-savers. One of the most harmful myths an eating disorder will urge you to believe is that physical appearance is all you can offer this world, but the truth is you are more than a body. The shape of your torso, width of your thighs and bone structure of your face are not the deciding factors of who you are. It’s crucial to realize that, as a human being, you possess three core attributes—body, mind and spirit. Together they form a holistic and integrated person, but when the body is hyper-scrutinized, the mind and spirit become ignored, segmented or disconnected from your whole self. However, you can nourish these mental and spiritual qualities by affirming that you are more than a body until it becomes your eating disorder recovery mantra.
