Enjoying the Holidays from a California Eating Disorder Recovery Center

For many people, one of their favorite parts about the holidays is the food. For someone who is recovering from an eating disorder, the many events centered on a meal can be challenging. At our California eating disorder recovery center, we encourage people to make a plan before the holidays arrive for how they will find ways to enjoy them.

Ways to Focus on Friends and Family, not Food

Here are some time-tested tips for putting the fun back in holiday celebrations while you are in recovery: 

Talk with a family member about your triggers. While those closest to you may understand what you’re going through, extended family members may not.

Bulimia Recovery Center in California Offers 3 Ways to Deal with Triggers

While in recovery from bulimia, you will encounter the emotional “triggers” that led to your unhealthy eating behaviors in the past. While that is a virtual certainty, there is no reason you have to give in to them. As we tell people at our bulimia recovery center in California, the goal in recovery is not to learn how to avoid your triggers but to learn how to handle them.

On the other hand, if you explore what they are and how they developed, you weaken their control over you. Try making a list of your triggers as you encounter them. Give them a name and jot down what kind of emotions they stir up in you. Then, for each one, describe a healthy emotional response.
