Nobody is immune to comparison. We do it in our work lives, and even more so in our personal lives where social media makes us believes that others are doing better than us. When you throw recovery into the mix, comparison can be an even trickier behaviour to navigate. This is because comparison can be super sneaky and you may not even realise you’re doing it!

In this week’s podcast co-host Lucy and I discuss sneaky ways we compare ourselves in ED & HA recovery including:

  • Ways we compare ourself to… ourself and how this can be really destructive
  • How body comparison shows up and what to do about it
  • What food comparison actually looks like and how to break this habit
  • Why “what I eat in a day” videos are so dangerous for recovery comparison
  • How comparing the duration of your recovery can add frustration to your journey
  • Social situation comparison including ranking your body size against others and how to overcome this
  • What to do if you notice exercise comparison showing up in your recovery journey
  • Why comparing your recovery wins to other people’s successes can lead to feeling let down by your own progress
