Are you feeling overwhelmed, depleted and exhausted?  Are you using self-care to try to feel better, but it’s just not working? Are you trying to justify your self-care and feeling guilty about it? Are your self-care rituals having a negative effect on your health, your relationships and your bank account?  If you answered yes to these questions, then your self-care has turned into self-sabotage.

This common pattern happens to many of us. Despite our best intentions to take great care of ourselves, we end making some self-care choices that ultimately cause us harm. It happens when we have not learned how to effectively process our negative emotions.

We use “treats” disguised as self-care to try to make us feel better to give us a quick rush of pleasure to numb out our discomfort. These treats can include indulging in extra sugar and white flour, spending money we don’t have, alcohol, shopping and accumulating things we don’t need, zoning out with Netflix or social media and excessive sleeping.   

In this lecture:
  • I will share the lessons I learned from overcoming a 15 year struggle with self-care and self-sabotage. 
  • I will show you the exact steps I teach my clients to overcome this pattern, permanently. 
  • You will learn how to identify the self-sabotaging behaviors creating negative consequences in your life and how to use the skill of emotional adulthood to effectively manage all of your feelings - positive and negative. 
  • I will also show you have to cultivate genuine and authentic self-care to improve your overall well-being.
