In all areas of life, the most successful people are the ones who stay motivated. Whether trying to excel in business, careers, or sports, motivation is the key factor that separates the successful people from the non-successful.
Weight loss is no different. If you want to lose weight successfully and stay healthy, you need to be motivated to eat wisely, exercise regularly, and carry out the right actions that will improve your prospects of achieving your goals.
Losing weight isn't always an easy task. Giving up your favourite foods or sticking to an exercise plan takes a lot of commitment, so you need to give yourself a good reason to stay on track.
There's no doubt that there will be many moments when you feel tempted to give up on your diet or exercise plan and go back to your old ways. That's where hypnosis and NLP can have a huge affect. The use of Neuro Linguistic Programming can help you stay motivated to achieve your weight loss goals on a subconscious level.
Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)
NLP is a form of hypnosis that helps you reprogram you subconscious mind. The subconscious mind is a powerful driving force that works with our conscious mind to control our actions. Destructive thought patterns can have an adverse effect on the subconscious and result in you acting out negative behaviours.
Reprogramming your subconscious mind helps you to reverse negative and fearful thought patterns that prevent you from staying motivated to achieve your goals.
Here is an NLP technique that can help you stay motivated to achieve your weight loss ambitions.
First of all, take some time to get yourself into a relaxed state. Once you are relaxed, imagine how you would look in 5 years time if you still haven't lost any weight. Make the image clear and detailed. Imagine your quality of life. Imagine how your body would feel. Fully experience the pain of living unhealthily.
Next, picture yourself with the perfect body. Imagine how great it feels to be fit and healthy. Make the image clear and vivid. Perhaps you can picture yourself on a long distance run, or wowing people on the middle of the dance-floor. Just imagine all the wonderful things you'd be able to enjoy doing if you had reached the perfect body weight.
When doing this exercise, feel the pain of being overweight and the pleasure of being healthy as strongly as possible.
The association of pain with staying overweight, and the association of pleasure with being healthy sends a powerful message to your subconscious mind.
Motivation is one of the biggest factors when it comes to weight loss, and the power of the mind is something you must not forget. Using your mind wisely can send the right message to your subconscious which in return will help you act in alignment with you objectives.
Having the subconscious on your side is like having your own internal personal trainer. Keep your motivation levels high on a deep level, and your dream of shedding your excess weight will be become much easier.
