Motivation is NOT Like a Muffin | #3


CW: Eating disorder, diet culture, weight loss 

I love personal development books about business, confidence, motivation, everything — but one thing I hate about them is that they almost always end up making a reference to dieting when they’re trying to make a point about consistent habits. When I started recovery from ED I started seeing how pervasive diet culture messages are everywhere. They’re on TV, in books, even in self help books that have nothing to do with food or dieting or health. For this reason, I will never compare motivation or habit building to food, dieting, or exercise. Dieting and mindset work are NOT the same thing.
