We’re so used to things not going our way that we protect ourselves by ruining things for ourselves before they get ruined by others. Many times those who sabotage their health are driven by unconscious reasons, but justify it via mindful means. Simply put, we screw up our health without even realizing it.
1. Be objective. Take a step back and look at what’s happening in your life from a stranger’s point of view. You can even start a journal and write down.
2. Embrace imperfections. Getting feedback and critique is probably the last thing you want, but a great chance to improve your health, realize what you’re doing wrong. More often than not, you’ll find that the feedback was actually helpful, but only if you don’t take it too personally, or over think everything.
3. Don’t be gullible. The grass that’s much greener on the other side of the fence is that way because of the hard work that went into it. What you envision success to be, whether it’s losing 20 pounds or being filthy rich, our thinking process doesn’t take into account all the hard work that goes into it. Be realistic about your health goals and break them down into mini-goals. They can be daily or weekly – it’s up to you. Write down every step you need to take in order to get there, and don’t leave out the times when you fail to reach one of them. Trust in the process, and more importantly, in yourself.
4. Stop being selfish. Some people think that when they sabotage their health, they’re doing it for the good of others around them. For example, a mother may feel that she’s putting her kids’ well-being before her own when she doesn’t take the time to eat right or exercise. Or a father thinks that by working all the time and not taking the time to take care of his health, then it’s for the sake of his family. The truth is, this behavior is the exact definition of being selfish.
