Overcoming Eating Disorder Challenges During the Holidays
It seems like the holiday season is completely centered around food and eating. The holiday season kicks off with Halloween, a holiday filled with candy, caramel apples, and sweet ciders. Then we move into Thanksgiving, an even more extensive food holiday. Every food imaginable is set in front of you, with plenty to spare. And then comes Christmas, where the eggnog and cookies seem to be endless. By the time New Years rolls around and you head out for an evening full of eating and drinking, you are usually at your breaking point and about ready to swear off food all together. This is typical of anyone during the holiday season, let alone if you have an Eating Disorder. There are many eating disorder challenges during the holidays. When the holidays are filled with food it can often cause your stress level and anxieties to sky rocket, potentially leading to eating disorders.
