February 20-26 is NEDA's Eating Disorders Awareness Week!
Here are a few great websites to tickle your fancy regarding this serious issue:
~Ways to get involved, provided by the Association for Anorexia Nervosa and Related Disorders
~Operation Beautiful is participating in NEDAwareness week with recovery-oriented notes and recovery stories
~"Beauty is NOT how skinny you can be!"....This is one of my all-time favorite videos that always cheers me up when I'm having a bad day.
~Dove's Campaign for Real Beauty is such a great resource for young girls
~Gurze Books is awesome--they feature books on every topic related to eating disorders, mental and physical health, and self-esteem. Check it out!
~Something Fishy is a wonderful online community dedicated to recovery. It is a great place to go for support and friendship.
Even if you do nothing else this week, try to be kind to yourself and to others. <3
