Achieve All Your Wellness Goals + Stop Self-Sabotaging
Are you your own worst enemy when it comes to self-care?
Obvious news alert: most women are.
Not because we don’t want to take care of ourselves and live our best, healthiest, and more beautiful lives, but rather because, well, life just seems to get in the way… Between our careers, families, friends, and more, we’re often last on our own to do lists, especially when it comes to our health and fitness, which is why we asked Stephanie Mansour from Step It Up with Steph to help us get to the bottom of our biggest self-sabotaging behaviors!
How To Stop Self-Sabotoging Your Wellness
If You’re Making Excuses…
Do you make excuses for yourself or blame your schedule, job, relationships, or other commitments for not leaving you any time to exercise or grocery shop for healthy foods? Re-assess which lifestyle choices you make and how they may or may not repeatedly sabotage your wellness efforts. Make sure you you aren’t constantly over-committed and learn to say NO sometimes.
When You Catch Yourself Procrastinating…
Do you tend to put off going to the gym or going grocery shopping so you can do other things first? Take care of yourself first and do other things later. This must be a priority in order to improve your strength, health, and any other fitness goals you have. Instead of procrastinating your wellness goals, get moving now. The more you train yourself to get out of the procrastinating mindset, the easier it will be to never fall into procrastination in the first place.
If You’re Not Valuing Yourself…
If you value something, you do whatever you need to do to take care of it, right? If you aren’t taking care of your body, you aren’t valuing it. You owe it to yourself to take care of your body and keep it in tip top order. Start taking little actions everyday that support your wellness, help you start to believe how valuable you really are, and show you how important it is to take care of yourself. Brush your teeth before you leave the house, spray some perfume, etc. Whatever you do, take the extra second to do something that will make you feel good about yourself.
