There is no doubt that 2020 has been one of the most trying years in modern history and for numerous reasons. For people struggling with eating disorders or those who have dealt with them in the past, 2020 was especially difficult, which - unfortunately - is not surprising.

Psychological and emotional issues are still on the rise, as confirmed by multiple studies. A study from JAMA Network Open reported that depression cases among adults in the US is more than 3-fold higher compared to cases pre-COVID-19. And many mental health concerns, such as anxiety, can take their toll on people struggling with eating disorders. In some cases, it may even result in a relapse.

Eating disorders during the pandemic is a tricky yet serious discussion.

Here's what you need to know about the issues, potential treatments for eating disorders and other cities and how you can manage or help your loved ones.



Working from home isn't new for most people. Whether you're living in Utah, Brazil, Spain, or anywhere else around the world. Of course, with its many advantages, one would choose this over the traditional work set-up. From the money, you save on transportation and food, as well as the time you spend getting ready every day.


However, the transition period may not be that easy for some. The work environment, for one, is a contributing factor to an individual's performance. When you're at home, it may be hard to look for a spot where you can be most productive. There would also be times when other external noises affect your train of thought.


Another thing lacking is the presence of your co-workers. Of course, working all day takes a toll on all of us. However, knowing that you have people around that go through the same thing as you do makes it more bearable. Having someone to talk to during breaks or ask advice from. These can all contribute to your mental well-being.


Apart from that, creating a schedule is also one way of adjusting to this new set-up. This allows you to balance your priorities and meet your deadlines.


Not only that, but you should also make sure that you have time for other important stuff outside of work. There are certain days when you'd need to go out and run some errands. Of course, keeping your place clean and organized is a must as well.


This is where a work-life balance comes into play.
