In this video (below), I discuss how activism can be a part of recovery. One of the most powerful steps in eating disorder recovery is cultivating and strengthening your authentic voice. One of the ways in which you can do this is through activism.

Activism is defined as vigorous action or involvement as a means of achieving political or other goals, sometimes by demonstrations, protests, etc. It can also be speaking up about your eating disorder in hopes of creating awareness.

Activism is not for everyone especially if you happen to be more of an introvert.

There are many other ways to use your authentic voice and strengthen your recovery, and becoming an activist is not a must.

Eating disorder activism can help strengthen your authentic voice and in turn strengthen your recovery because it can help erase shame and stigma for both the speaker and the listener.

Participating in activism can also help by holding you accountable in your recovery because it is very difficult to be a voice in eating disorder awareness and recovery when you’re actively participating in eating disorder behaviors.

Using your voice in eating disorder activism is also an incredible way to give back and serve others, which can lead to the discovery of your purpose or mission in life.

Finding a mission or purpose larger than yourself is a wonderful way to stay strong in your recovery.
