If you are in recovery from an eating disorder, exercise habits may be a tricky area to navigate. But just like eating, exercise is important because when practiced in moderation, physical activity can improve your health mentally and physically. However, just like food, your habits and relationship with exercise can either be healthy or unhealthy.

1. Stop Thinking and Start Feeling

Stop relying on external cues to influence your choices with exercise. Your body is unique and different. You will not experience exercise the same way as the person next to you. Start trusting your own instincts by checking in with how you feel during and after your exercise session.

2. Exercise for Stress Relief

Although using exercise as a way to manage stress is wonderful, be mindful exercise does not become a way to avoid stress or uncomfortable situations/feelings. When exercise is used to numb out or avoid life instead of helping to face problems in a positive and more caring way, then this should be a red flag.

3. Find The Fun!

The way you move your body should be fun and enjoyable. Be aware of why you find it fun and enjoyable. If you like a form of exercise because you think it will help to physically change your body to fit a beauty standard, then you might want to ask yourself why this is so important to you and possibly consider other exercise options.
