What are my options for door anchoring if the door opens in?

I spend a lot of time tied to a room where the door opens into the room. They don't suggest using door anchors in that situation only when the door opens out.

Go ahead and still use them? Other ideas? Don't want to drill holes into the wall.

    Door anchoring what, exactly?

    Depends on the door and the latch. Test it out gently, anchor only on the top, and slide the anchor towards the hinge side. If you can install a sliding latch to keep the door closed that would help. Maybe wedge a rubber doorstop under the bottom of the door. This is not official advice and I accept no liability!!

    Resistance bands.

    Ah, thanks! There being various forms of door-based exercise equipment, I wasn't sure.

    Since Lorr evidently did know, I don't think I can improve on her suggestions. Apologies!
