Weekends in recovery can present many challenges. One of those challenges is a change in routine.
It is really important to maintain a routine on the weekend so that you can avoid bingeing and/or purging.
Getting dressed is a good first step. Even if you’re changing into something comfy it sets the tone to the day and makes a difference in how you feel.
Having a plan on when to eat is also an important part of maintaining a routine on the weekend. When you have a plan to nourish your body with tasty and nutritious food, you fill have a huge advantage when you’re faced with an urge to binge.
Additionally, keeping your sleep schedule relatively normal will help you feel energized and productive during the weekend and make Monday a lot easier.
And most importantly, find ways to enjoy your weekend. Whether it’s going out on the town or spending a night cuddled inside, find a way to enjoy yourself.
I hope that you can feel confident that you can maintain recovery even on the weekend. Just take it one day at a time and one meal at a time.
