Working-In vs. Working-Out

Working-in involves engaging in slow, relaxed movements that don’t tend to elevate heart and respiratory rates. When you work-out, your body burns energy through the process of pumping blood from the organs and glands to your muscles. Conversely, when you work-in you keep blood in your organs and glands, increasing energy by allowing your organs and glands to take in fresh, arterial blood. Additionally, working-in:

  • Moves nutrition through your body
  • Improves your body’s breathing mechanism
  • Helps detoxify your body by moving waste through your body
  • Stimulates energy throughout your body to run cellular and biological systems
  • Resets natural biological rhythms, allowing your body to run more efficiently. The result? More energy to do other activities you love.

Practicing yoga and meditation are the most popular ways to engage in working-in. Incorporating yoga and meditation into your routine can also help in recovery from your eating disorder. A study from the Psychology of Women Quarterly reported that people who practice yoga reported “less self-objectification, greater satisfaction with their physical appearance, and fewer disordered eating attitudes”. Yoga is an excellent way to improve your ability to “be in the moment” by requiring you to focus on breathing and sensations throughout the body. If you experience body dysmorphic disorder (BDD), yoga has the potential to relieve the symptoms by allowing you to experience your body in a physical way, as opposed to a visual way. Meditation is proven to reduce depression, anxiety, and episodes of binge eating.
