Meditation can help you get in touch with your feelings and gain awareness of things that are going on that may be causing you stress and leading you to restrict or overeat. Therapy and meditation can both be catalysts that clear away stuff so people can resolve things themselves and self-activate.
As you’ll see in this video, meditation may reveal things you don’t like or aren’t ready to deal with. That’s why it can be helpful to have the support of a therapist, therapy group, 12-step group, sponsor or trusted friend who can help you process your experiences and feelings.

Meditation can help you uncover what’s going on, and talking that out in therapy or other safe settings can help you get centered and clear to make healing changes. And maybe even reach enlightenment along the way.
