BodyMatters recommends: Eight blogs worth reading

By Madalyn Oliver


BodyMatters have put together a list of blogs (in no particular order) that we believe may be useful in supporting you on your recovery journey. We understand that some personal narratives can be triggering due to their inclusion of numbers or descriptions that other sufferers may not identify with, so we have been careful to avoid blogs with these characteristics. Whilst each blog is unique, they all contain valuable information, helpful resources and are recovery focused. So, set some time aside for yourself and have a read.

  1. Love Body Yoga

Love Body Yoga demonstrates how yoga can be used as a tool for recovery. Love Body Yoga posts one yoga class onto the webpage each week. Each week has a different theme and a weekly blog that corresponds with that week’s yoga practice. Themes include mind and body awareness, self-compassion and self-love, presence, breathing, mindful movement, meditation and balance.

  1. The Middle Ground

Joanna Kay, the author behind The Middle Ground, is working toward recovery from Anorexia. On her blog, Joanna writes from her perspective as someone who is midway through recovery. Joanna describes this stage of recovery as being “paved with hope that full recovery is possible” but still requiring “daily focus and commitment”. The blog not only documents Joanna’s recovery but also comments on issues relevant to anyone who has been touched by an eating disorder including patients, family, friends and practitioners.

  1. Light of the Moon Café

Anita Johnston and Elisabeth Peterson are a psychologist and dietitian who have experience in the field of disordered eating. Their blog has a community feel and targets women of all ages and from all over the world with an aim of supporting women to transform their relationships with food.

  1. Seed of Freedom

Tania Veronese is a transformational life coach and healer, specialising in emotional and disordered eating issues. Tania’s blogs are directed towards helping women heal their relationship with food and to reconnect with their own body so that they can experience inner stillness.

  1. Eating Disorder Hope

Eating Disorder Hope is an easy to read, recovery focused blog which provides the latest information, resources and hope to eating disorder sufferers, their family members and treatment providers.

  1. Health at Every Size

The Heath at Every Size (HAES) movement acknowledges that well-being and healthy habits are more important than any number on the scale. The content on the HAES blog is consistent with this message, aiming to promote size acceptance, end weight discrimination and lessen the cultural obsession with weight loss and thinness.


  1. Tiny Buddha

Tiny Buddha was founded in 2009 with an aim to reflect on simple pieces of wisdom and to support its readers to learn new ways to apply this wisdom to their complex lives. On Tiny Buddha you will find blogs about happiness, motivation, inspiration, love, relationships, meaning, possibilities, mindfulness, yoga, spirituality, minimalism and letting go.

  1. Recovery Warriors

Recovery Warriors is a multimedia resource hub, connecting technology and treatment to provide hope and healing to those suffering from an eating disorder. In addition to their blog, the Recovery Warriors also have an app (Rise Up & Recover), online magazines, podcasts, a treatment directory and playlists.

Please note that this list of blogs is certainly not exhaustive. We would love to hear about any other blogs that you have found useful on your recovery journey in the comments.  You may also like to visit our website where you can find additional resources to support you in your recovery.
