Navigating your way through ‘Recovery-Focused’ Resources

Trawling through any form of social media for recovery oriented can be a bit of a minefield these days. Anyone can become an influencer or create a podcast and, unfortunately, nothing is regulated. Often we are drawn in by some of the initial content and perhaps even begin to feel support and a sense of community. Very quickly though, we find ourselves triggered and realising that the content creator has a very different idea of what ‘recovery’ is. All you need do is type in something like #edrecovery and you come to realise there is so much content that can be harmful for folks working day in-day out to recover from all types of eating disorders or disordered eating. 

Never fear though! I have done the trawling for you and listed below some of my favourite content that supports eating disorder recovery. Please note: If you do feel like any of these resources are triggering or don’t match your lived experience of your eating disorder, please protect yourself and your recovery by crossing it off the list. If you have any great resources that you would like to share, please add them in the comments box below.
