The holiday season is almost in full swing and many of us release the last purse strings of control and allow a month or two of indulgence to kick in. This is the time of year many of our potential clients say they’ll just wait until the holidays are over, it would be too difficult to start now and the truth is they want to indulge! This is what many of us consider a free time to do whatever we want. With the average person gaining 8 or more pounds every year during this time, you have to think about the real cost of saying “yes” to poor eating for two months.
Total health that includes preventative care must go year round! You can still enjoy the holidays and have a few favorites without going to an extreme and forgetting your health entirely. I tell clients, this is the perfect time of year to try hypnosis for weight loss because it allows you to eat some of your treats, but still be in control. Hypnosis can help provide stress relief and management during a hectic holiday season! Hypnosis can teach you how to eat in moderation, feel full faster and to crave healthier foods.
It’s wonderful to start at the New Year and get on board with your health, but why start then when you could have prevented that ten pound weight gain, when you could have already started two months prior and had a healthier holidays? It is always easier to be preventative then to have to go in once a bigger problem has formed. Most of us need to become healthier even before the holidays, so delaying your decision to become healthy and manage your weight only makes it more challenging.
Start today with a decision to change the way you think about weight loss, your body and the way you eat. It is possible and we know that because we see it every day, using hypnosis and mindfulness techniques to change the way people think about food. It starts upstairs, in your brain with the way you have been programmed throughout your life. Perhaps you’ve put some of those thoughts in there yourself, but you never recognized them in a conscious way. No one ever thinks “I’m stressed, so I’ll eat this entire plate of cookies.”
The way you think has been formed by thousands of small decisions throughout your life. It becomes a thought pattern and a behavioral pattern that forms a natural reaction. You automatically reach for something sweet to pick you up when you’re tired or to calm you down after a stressful day. Those unconscious things we do can be broken up. You can form new thought and behavior patterns with the help of hypnosis, it’s a powerful tool in the fight for your health.
If you feel that you’ve tried everything you could, every diet plan and exercise plan known to earth, then hypnosis could be the missing key for your health. Changing your thinking is where everything else flows from, the way you think and feel about food, nutrition and exercise comes from your thoughts. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard “I just hate exercise, I always have.” What if you can change that thought? What if you start to feel a love for exercise? A desire to move your body more? That’s where true and lasting change comes in, that’s where total health from emotional all the way down to physical comes from.
It comes from a desire to be healthy, to think like a healthy person does and to act in the way that healthy people behave. Change your mind and you can change your body.
