Self-Sabotage

Sarah Lynn Baird

"There are two kinds of people in this world: those that self sabotage and those that deny they self-sabotage." JP Sears

Watch this video and ask yourself this question: where in my life does this shame cycle play out?


QUOTE

If we can share our story with someone who responds with empathy and understanding, shame can’t survive.
— Brene Brown

BRAIN FUEL

Nutrition is never "one size fits all", but many of us can benefit from increasing our EPA/DHA consumption. Please read All About Fish Oil from Precision Nutrition to understand the general benefits of taking an omega supplement.

Precision Nutrition recommends Thorne Research – Super EPA which is available on Amazon.

If you prefer vegetarian supplements, Purity Products makes a quality vegetarian Omega 3 • 6 • 9 supplement.

PRACTICAL TIP

Create a menu for the week and then go shopping. Here are the main benefits:

  • Saves Money: you will save money by eating our less and buying only what you need for the week.
  • Saves Time: This eliminates choice so time in deliberation is reduced. 
  • Increases Adherence: Planning is key when trying to establish new food behaviors.
