The holidays are upon us. Whilst many look forward to this time of year, Christmas can present unique challenges to those in eating disorder recovery.
If you’re struggling to feel merry, know that you’re not alone. Christmas can be stressful for anyone – even those without an eating disorder. We’ve collated our guidance for the festive period so you can keep your recovery the priority.
Let’s take a moment to recognise where you are right now, reading this.
It may be that you’re thinking of a loved one who is struggling, or perhaps it is you who struggles at this time of year and you’re looking for guidance.
Wherever you are right now, this action of reaching out and seeking support is really positive.
We know that finding true peace and acceptance can only come through a personal journey of ups and downs and can’t be “taught” through a workbook. However, as you’re reading this, we’re also supporting our clients through the festive season.
We’d like to use this space as an opportunity to share some of the tips we’re sharing with our clients. Know that you, too, can do this.
