It's not an uncommon thing to be out of sync with your intentions. But maybe it's because you are using the wrong part of your mind! Your power of will is in your conscious mind. The part of your mind that looks, listens, and learns. But your habits, emotions, patterns, and automatic behaviors are in your subconscious mind. Your subconscious mind doesn't make decisions. It simply follows the patterns that you....or someone else, has programmed in there. So maybe your eating behaviors, your relationships with food and even your patterns of activity and exercise are no longer conscious choices, but simply old habits.
So how do we change our mind? It's a systematic process. You can do it yourself if you know how. Or you can hire a hypnotist or health coach to assist you.
The first step is to get rid of the negative thoughts! Make a list of all the things you don't want and don't like about your weight. Use imagery to let it go.
Identify your obstacles. Those are the excuses you make or the reasons you give yourself for not losing weight.
What's your motivation: who do you want to become?
Install that image in your mind. Use meditation, visualization or simply activate that image every night as you are falling asleep. Do that for at least thirty nights.
Make a plan. Does your plan need to include a food plan, an exercise plan, an hypnosis plan or a support plan? Do you need guidance or education? Do you need the support of a professional hypnotist or health coach? Make the plan as detailed as you can. Give your conscious mind a structure to work from.
Activate your plan. That's right! Take action! Each day do at least three things that support your healthy weight. You might find that as you do three things, you automatically do more, becasue it feels good to take care of yourself. It feels good to be healthy, active and slender!
So here's my challenge to you: I have a few pounds to lose, do you? Let's hold each other accountable. Write a comment and include your goal. Then report your progress along the way. Let's take these next few months to get healthier and feel great!
