The holiday season can be really challenging for people recovering from an eating disorder.

The holiday season can be really challenging for people recovering from an eating disorder.
Here are some tips to help you get through this time of year:
– Practice self-care: take time for yourself to relax, unwind and reduce stress and anxiety.
– Have a plan for how to approach holiday meals: your support team can guide you. It will help you cope with your anxiety and what to do should a family member become judgmental
– Set healthy boundaries: during this period, there will be a lot of diet talks or diet plans. Remember it is okay to say to events, to leave a conversation or unfollow social media accounts that promote diets and quick fixes.
– Shift your focus: start and end your day with gratitude: write 3 things you are most grateful for
– Don’t skip meals: Skipping lunch to be able to enjoy dinner or vice versa is not a good idea. It will make you eat more and crave high-calorie foods. Therefore, eat regularly and try to stick to your structured eating schedule
– Be gentle with yourself: try talking to yourself the way that you would a loved one or small child who was struggling. Remember that you are not alone and you are not a failure.
– Sleep well: 7-8 hours a night
