The Holiday Season is here.
The Christmas music is all around, cookies are being baked, holiday parties are being planned, the pressure to create the perfect holiday is rising.
For some, the holidays are the most beautiful time of the year, for others – especially those who are fighting with their weight and their relationship with food, the holidays are a time full of triggers, shame and guilt.
There is SO MUCH to do, SO MANY parties to attend, SO MUCH temptation that feels oh so overwhelming and SO MANY reasons to freak out.
It’s sooo easy to reach for perfection during this time.
However, the more perfect you try to be, the more likely it is that you’ll snap.
Food fears, restriction, too much exercise and a series of binge attacks is almost guaranteed when you don’t allow for imperfection and don’t make your self-care a priority on your Christmas to-do list.
What about your self-care tools?
Even if you feel it might be too early, now’s the time to prepare and create self-care strategies that you can benefit from in the weeks to come.
Now’s the time to take note of your triggers and ask yourself what makes you want to go on a diet, restrict, binge or run away? What are the situations, the words, the memes or the bodies you see that trigger current or old eating destructive eating behaviors?
Now’s the time to DO. THE. WORK. and to use your tools heavily.
Be open to change and implement the self-care strategies that we share in this episode of the Escape Diet Prison Podcast and beyond.
