NEDA Week for Those Recovering from Disastrous Eating Disorders
NEDA week is a special time of year where we come together to honor those who are struggling with eating disorders.
I began heavily working in the eating disorder field in 2013. Soon enough, I would come to learn what it looks like to fight every day, with challenges are struggles.
Eating disorders are a serious affliction affecting at least 11 million Americans, and probably more.
Eating disorders are when you have an unhealthy relationship with food that becomes priority over your relationship with others. NEDA week is a time where working in a Partial Hospitalization Program, we would “let loose” and fight back with rituals instead of CBT and DBT.
I will never forget smashing scales with a group of those recovering from their illness. I remember hearing clients say that “NEDA Week gives hope!”
There are different forms of eating disorders that involve fasting, restricting calories, binge eating. Use of laxatives, over-exercising, and / or purging.
People struggling with eating disorders might have a fear of being overweight, be obsessed with something in particular with their food, or have unrealistic expectations about how their body ought to look.
Whether you are struggling with restriction of calories, purging or excessive exercise, or binging, it is time to gain control of your life again and celebrate with us during NEDA week.
We want you to love the person you see in the mirror!
Our Favorite Exercises:
- Cover 60% of your mirrors with things that make you smile
- Unfollow EVERY single account that has messages that encourage disordered behaviors
- Pick one part of your body that you don’t mind. Write yourself a love letter as if you were an admirer!
- Draw a family tree and track all the people in your life that had negative beliefs about food and body image. Learn to challenge those beliefs!
