The holidays can be very stressful for someone recovering from and eating disorder. In our 1st part we discussed the importance of planning in decreasing the stress of these hectic days ahead. We also discussed briefly exercise, the relapse warfare sheet, relaxation, and remembering to take care of ourselves as additional important focusses. Today we will be looking at relationships because the holidays tend to bring us into contact with individuals that may cause additional stress or not. As always the statement 'you can't chose your family but can choose your friends' applies. While family can be very important it can also bring with it some negative emotional experiences unfortunately. If this is the case it is imperative to have coping skills to assist individuals to have a more positive holiday experience. So we will be focussing on that issue in particular in conjunction with all the other postivie holiday survival techniques.
