Hey Melissa, a few key messages stand out for me, mainly to appreciate yourself and your body. Being grateful. Putting things into perspective — there’s more to being healthy than food.
I came across some research by The University of Waterloo when writing about perfectionism, that may also be relevant for people with food disorders. When we’re trying to be perfect or obsessing about food (or other external things), a key reason is we don’t think we’re good enough.
And this research found that having self-compassion can help.
Cheers for sharing Melissa! :)
