040 Fighting Anorexia – How Can I Protect Myself From Toxic Outside Influences?

Play Download media
In this episode of Fighting Anorexia I talk about how we can protect ourselves from dieting co-workers, crazy weight loss gurus and other toxic media messages. Here are a few strategies that you can implement today: Ask people to stop talking about their diets when you are around. Be blunt about it but in a kind way. You don't have to tell them you have an eating disorder, but tell them their constant conversations about this topic are bothering you. Put earphones on and listen to music or podcasts. This will drown the other voices. Start a different conversation. Sometimes people need a push in the right direction. Be that push. If friends are hindering you in moving forward, stop seeing them, even if it hurts. Read books and take in different ideas, different subject, important topics. Inspire yourself. Remind yourself of what is really important in life. Write down a list and have it handy. Get some perspective: go out on a walk, talk to a friend, see a therapist and remind yourself what life is really about.
