A colleague of mine asked if I could write a guest post for her website, Every Day Health and Wellness Therapy, on something related to eating disorders. Jazzed at the opportunity to talk about something I am deeply passionate about, I couldn't pass it up. The post talks about the need to be counter cultural when it comes to your relationship with your body, weight, exercise, feelings, mental health issues, etc. A message that differs from what main stream culture says...
Below are the 5 main points from the article. Be sure to check the entire piece out here.
#1. Weight Isn't the Focus
#2. Health at Every Size (you can read more about that here)
#3. You Don't Have to Have an Eating Disorder to Get Help with Your Relationship with Food
#4. Emotions Are Our Friends
#5. Taking Care of Your Mental Health Issues is OK
Will you think and treat yourself counter culturally on these issues?
