Overcoming Self-Sabotage to Achieve Your Wellness Vision

Overcoming Self-Sabotage to Achieve Your Wellness Vision

Dear Mums,

I see you. Balancing the demands of family, work, and personal wellbeing can feel like an endless juggling act. You have the desire to prioritise your health and create positive habits, but somehow, self-sabotage sneaks in, hindering your progress. Today, let’s pause to create new patterns, without judgment but from a place of self-love and reclaim our wellness journey together.

I write this as I work on stopping my own self-sabotaging habits. I have just spent 2 months with laser focus on my running goal, and then 2 days away saw me lose focus and drop my morning rituals.

What could be your Triggers? Some common Culprits 👇🏻

🫣 Stress Overload

The weight of daily responsibilities often leaves us feeling overwhelmed. Stress can trigger emotional eating, lack of sleep, and decreased determination to exercise.

🫣 Time Constraints

Busy schedules make it seem impossible to prioritise self-care. We often put ourselves last, sacrificing our well-being for the sake of others.

🫣 Negative Self-Talk

That inner critic (ego voice) can be relentless, telling us we're not good enough or capable of change. This negative mindset can erode our confidence and deter us from pursuing our wellness goals.

🫣 Unrealistic Expectations

Setting overly ambitious goals can set us up for disappointment. When we don't meet these expectations, it can lead to feelings of failure and self-doubt.

Choosing Empowerment Through Self-Awareness

Now, let's shift our focus from self-sabotage to self-empowerment.

Here’s how we can break free from these triggers 🙌🏻

🔥 Embrace Imperfection

Let go of the idea of perfection. It's okay to have setbacks or busy days. Aim for progress, not perfection.

🔥 Practice Self-Compassion

Treat yourself with kindness and understanding. Replace negative self-talk with affirmations that build you up.

🔥 Prioritise Self-Care

Schedule time for yourself as you would for any other important commitment. Even small acts of self-care can have a big impact on your well-being. These are essential moments throughout your day, from that 5 minutes of breathing in the sun with your cuppa, to a long solo walk in the arvo.

🔥 Simplify and Delegate

Learn to say no and delegate tasks when possible. Simplifying your life can create space for healthier habits. My husband once said to me “I can’t read your mind, please tell me how I can help you.”

🔥 Build a Support System

Taking the First Step

Remember, you deserve to thrive, not just survive. Start by taking small, achievable steps towards your wellness goals. Celebrate every milestone along the way, and be patient with yourself through the process.

You are capable of creating positive change and living a life filled with vitality and joy. Let's break free from self-sabotage together and embrace a future where self-care is a non-negotiable priority.
