As you may know from part 1 of our #NEDA series, this week has been dedicated to increasing National Eating Disorders Awareness. While we have already discussed its history and purpose, today we want to dive deeper into the affects eating disorders have not only on the body but also on the mind.
Eating disorders have been a prevalent problem in America for decades. In fact, about 20 million women and 10 million men experience eating disorders at some point in their lifetime. That is why so many organizations across the country come together to improve education and increase advocacy for National Eating Disorder Awareness Week. With eating disorders categorized as a behavioral and mental illness, it is important, now more than ever, to discuss the significance of total body wellness. Although people may not initially be perceived as someone who suffers from an eating disorder, a person's health should not always be determined from how they look but in most cases how they feel both physically and mentally.

The year 2020 has brought many unexpected challenges, but with unexpected challenges come unexpected solutions.

Earlier this week, we discussed the impact COVID has had on some of our everyday habits in terms of how we socialize with others in public spaces like stores, gyms, restaurants and even on dates all during a pandemic. While we can only offer so many social safety tips, it’s important to also note the overwhelming developments of digital engagement technology that continue to connect us with our loved ones, educate us even when schools are closed, provide virtual healthcare services in addition to stabilize our economy with remote workforce management. That’s why in part 2 of our “Living In 2021” blog series, we are going to discuss how these advancements have evolved how we define “social interaction” as well as what this year ahead will look like with continuity of communication as its focus.
