June Tips

NOW, self-defeating habits are those Physical Plane behaviors and Mental Plane thoughts that hold you back from achieving your goals and living your best life NOW. They are often automatic, unconscious, and counterproductive, and they can have a negative impact on your relationships, health, and well-being. Read on as I add more tips to better understand your old NOW’s self-defeating habits and spend quiet time to decide how to overcome them through self-care first habits.

June 1st – Identify what self-defeating habits you have

The first step to overcoming self-defeating habits is to identify them. Pay attention to the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that are holding you back from achieving your goals. Do you procrastinate, self-sabotage, or engage in negative self-talk? If so, you might be acting as your own worst enemy. Once you have identified your old NOW’s self-talk and self-defeating habits, you can begin to work on changing them with the power of your new NOW. Spend time and journal.

June 3rd – Understand the underlying beliefs and emotions

Self-defeating habits often stem from underlying beliefs and emotions that you may not be aware of. In a study on golf participants, they found that those who spoke negatively of their ability and their game were more likely to perform worse than those who engaged in self-affirming language. Mental Plane mastery skills for living in your new NOW on purpose begins with mastering the self-talk that literally creates your pretend world.

For example, you may have a belief that you are not good enough or have a fear of failure that is holding you back. It is important to understand these underlying beliefs and emotions so that you can challenge and change them.

June 5th – Practice self-awareness

Self-awareness is key to overcoming self-defeating habits. How can you work against something that you don’t know exists, much less understand? Grab a pen and paper and take time to listen to your true self and record what’s going on in your Mental Plane mind. Journal work reveals what your true self is whispering. There are many types of journals to peruse by clicking on the pricing dropdown tab over at www.ZitoProHealth.com.

Pay attention to your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors throughout the day. Notice when you engage in self-defeating behaviors and what triggers them. This can help you to better understand your habits and begin to make changes. That awareness time holds you accountable to your promise of living in the NOW on purpose.

Retreat within, breathe, journal your new NOW.
