EDFNL Newsletter #11
Winter 2021

Welcome to our 11th edition of the EDFNL Newsletter. 

This past week has been very stressful for the entire province. We are once more in Alert Level 5 with many restrictions. With the presence now of so many covid cases and the new variant of covid it is an anxious time for most of us.

I thought it would be a good time to send out some resources. My hope is that some of these might be helpful to you. Feel free to pass them on to friends or family that might find them helpful too.

In this newsletter I will provide a quick overview of the resources attached.

Expressive Art Workshops 🎨

SELF-HEALING WITH ART AND WRITING

This attachment has some wonderful activities for self-healing that you might find helpful. Take a look  😊


New Website with free resources
The MORNINGSIDE CHATS offered on the weekends now has their own website that is filled with resources. It is worth a look whether you just want to see their free handout section or whether you would like to watch some of their previous Sat Morning Chats with eating disorder experts in the field.

Positive Self-Talk
This third link is about Positive Self-Talk. What we tell ourselves, the daily minute to minute mind chatter or inner voice, our self-talk is one of the dramatic factors in determining how we feel about ourselves and what we do with our lives. This article talks about Negative Self-Talk and Positive Self-Talk. It gives great suggestions of Positive Self-Acknowledgment and Self-Talk Activities.

 

Thank you for reading this EDFNL newsletter.

Please feel free to reach out to me if I can be of any help.
