Many people recovering from eating disorders find the idea of boundary setting terrifying, which is no surprise really.

After all, setting boundaries is all about valuing yourself as a person, putting your own needs first and avoiding being pressured into situations by others; three things that can be almost alien concepts when you’re still in the grip of bulimia. 

So how do you learn to start setting healthy boundaries in recovery?

1. Think about the holiday boundaries you'd like to set  

Boundaries involve deciding what you will and won’t do; they are about where you draw a line between what is appropriate and what is not. In regards to recovery, boundaries help you to set limits on what is recovery-friendly and what is not. So think about the boundaries that may help you to stay recovery focused over the holidays, perhaps asking a family member to not discuss weight or diets at the dinner table? What about making the decision to avoid participating in toxic conversations no matter what?
