Dear Melanie, Almost everything about recovery is about gradual increments. Almost everything about eating disorder thinking and behaviors is about instant gratification including plans to do something major immediately. You start your routine with one small thing.

If not, develop the practice of making your bed every morning so it's inviting when you go to bed. And give yourself clean bedding that is washed on a regular basis. If that's not an issue, take a look at your bedroom or sleeping place. Is it tidy with something pleasant to look at when you are in bed, just before you turn off the light to sleep? Get the idea? You approach your routine gently and gradually so you can enjoy it and stay with it.
