I can’t believe I just did that!

Why does this always happen to me?

I really should stop myself from...

Sound familiar? Whether we’re aware of it or not, most of us are guilty of self-sabotage. These behaviors can manifest in seemingly innocuous ways, but if left unchecked can create stress and cause problems in all areas of your life.

In The Healthy Mind Toolkit, Dr. Alice Boyes provides easy, practical solutions that will help you identify how you’re holding yourself back and how to reverse your self-sabotaging behaviors. Blending scientific research with techniques from cognitive behavioral therapy, this engaging book will take you through the steps to address this overarching problem, including how to:

  • Identify the specific ways you're hurting your success in all aspects of your life
  • Capitalize on the positive aspects of your extreme traits instead of the negatives
  • Find creative solutions to curb your self-defeating patterns
  • Practice self-care as a problem-solving strategy

Filled with quizzes and insightful exercises to personalize your journey from harmful behaviors to healthy habits, The Healthy Mind Toolkit is the essential guide to get out of your own way and get on the path to success.

Good techniques to try

I thought the book had some good ideas on how to handle difficult areas of life when you tend to have anxiety about them or are avoidant of them. There were some helpful tips on how to get out of your own way that I never thought of before by just looking at the situation differently so that you're setting yourself up for success ahead of time. It touched on procrastination, self care, relationships, work, finances, and how to develop better habits. I didn't really like the narrator's manner of speaking with lots of fluction in her voice after every sentence. It made it hard to focus because it felt more like a textbook than something I would read for pleasure. Definitely would recommend if you're struggling to get out of a "rut" because your own behaviors are getting in the way.
