Happy New Year!

By December 31, 2013

Follow me on:

It's hard to believe that 2014 is already here.  It is always surprising to me how quickly the holiday season goes by and also how nice it is to get back into a regular routine and schedule.  My holidays consisted of tons of traveling so I am thankful to be back in my own bed and home.

The new year can symbolize a new beginning for many people, especially those who are struggling with something or going through a difficult time in their lives.  I've had multiple clients tell me that they want a new year to be eating disorder-free or to be a year of recovery.  I think that is a wonderful idea.  However, I also think it is important to be realistic with your goals for the year.  Try to make goals that are achievable and flexible.  Eating disorder recovery is imperfect and by asking yourself for perfection, you may be setting yourself up for disappointment.

Did you make resolutions this year?  What are they?  Don't worry if you haven't made them yet, you can make resolutions any time that you like!
