Managing Your Eating Through The Coronavirus Pandemic ?
The Coronavirus pandemic is a time of heightened stress for everyone, with a lot of unknowns. Routines are disrupted. People with busy lives are now stuck at home with much less to do. The loss of structure can be challenging.
While most people have difficulty with extended periods of uncertainty, for people with eating disorders, who tend to be more rigid and can have trouble with flexibility, the difficulty is greater. During times of stress, people automatically tend to revert to their past coping strategies. For those with eating disorders, these often include eating disorder behaviors.
