When you are recovering from an eating disorder, it can be tricky and possibly dangerous when you start to incorporate exercise back into your life. Not only can the environment in which you exercise be a trigger, the unsolicited comments about body size and shape can also test your strength and challenge your recovery.

This video explains the steps you need to take in order to safely add exercise back into your recovery and help prevent relapse.

1. Obtain clearance from your recovery/treatment team.

2. Find a person to exercise with you that will be in complete support of your recovery. Choose them wisely!

3. Set parameters — day, time, and location.

4. Avoid numbers — remember they can be everywhere.

5. Be picky about your instructor. Look for one that does not use fat talk.

6. Avoid triggering environments.

7. Remember you are working out to have fun and mending or establishing a mind body connection, which can aid in your recovery.
