Effectiveness of a Stress-Reduction Intervention for Disordered Eating Behaviours
About this study
Eating is a common and normal way to soothe, cope with, or distract from stress. However, some people can find that their eating behaviours become unhelpful, distressing, or the only tool they have in their stress-management tool-box. This study provides tools using a smartphone application that support people to monitor their stress levels and engage in a variety of stress-reduction activities. These activities may help you to reduce your stress levels, ease unhelpful or distressing eating behaviours, and build up a tool-box of different coping methods.
2. You will be randomised to either the intervention group or the control group.
3. If you are randomised to the control group, you’ll be asked to monitor your mood and eating behaviours four-times per day for four weeks. After this, you’ll be provided with access to the intervention content.
4. If you are randomised to the intervention group, you’ll be asked to monitor your stress levels four times per day for four weeks. You’ll also receive unlimited access to stress-reduction activities, which include audio files for breathing exercises, gratitude practices, mindfulness activities, and relaxation exercises.
