It’s that time of year again! No matter where you might be on your eating disorder recovery journey, the holiday season always feels just a little more difficult than any other time of year. Be it the food, the people or the things people say, there is usually something that can either induce anxiety or trigger our eating disorder voice to scream loud for attention.

If you are new to recovery, this time of year might be extra challenging or a quite possibly a wonderful time to celebrate not only the spirit of the season but also how much progress you’ve made thus far in your recovery.

Here are some tips on how to enjoy the holiday season when you are new to recovery.

  1. Plan ahead to schedule sessions with your recovery team before and after your holiday celebrations.
  2. Set boundaries with family and possibly friends. These may include: no body comments, questions about treatment, or questions about food. Share these boundaries with family members and/or friends you feel safe with.
  3. Have an escape route. If you happen to be in a situation where you feel like you might be triggered or unsafe, have a set excuse to get out of the situation or a way to leave the event.
  4. Celebrate your recovery by doing things you would not have done during your eating disorder. Plan things that make you happy and feel good, because you deserve it.
