  • Speak more kindly about myself and others.
  • Celebrate the differences that make us unique.
  • Focus on what my body can do, not what it looks like.
  • Build others up, not bring them down.
  • Say thank you next time someone gives me a compliment.
  • Not compare myself to someone else's highlight reel.
  • Put myself first!
  • Change the conversation about bodies and appearance at home, work, school and online.

Worried about a friend or someone you care about?

It can be extremely difficult raising the subject of eating disorders with a friend or loved one. To be supportive one needs to learn what to say and what not to say.  

 

We can help you with knowing when to talk to your friend and what to say. ›
