The surprising fact is that many conditions can be improved by visualization and weight loss You ask yourself is this one of them.
It works like this:
You keep a vision in your mind of how you want your body to look, or for many people who can not vision, make a vision board put it where you can see it and look at it several times a day, and subconsciously you will begin acting in a way that will go in that direction. You become much more positive about your body, more accepting of your diet and fitness regime, and you will reach your weight goals more quickly and easily.
Implementing change through visualization desired outcomes has become more and more acceptable in recent years. There are many researchers that do not understand exactly how it works but clearly, the mind and body are not as separate as we often believe. It seems that if you truly want something it is more likely to happen – provided of course that it is something that is possible, and within your control.
Visualization will help us to actually want to lose weight by creating a clear and positive picture of our positive bodies the way we want it to be. Without this, we can often put emotional traps in our own path.
Many people who are overweight believe they cannot lose weight.
Sometimes you may think it out loud, or hear friends say it about themselves. For other people, this belief stays true in your subconscious mind. It works in our minds so that it influences our behaviors. Someone who believes it is impossible for them to lose weight will be constantly battling their own negativity that has to be changed into a positive thought when one is trying to diet.
One thing to remember while fighting negativity
- Like attracts Like
- Negative attracts Negative
Their mind will be constantly telling them there is no point dieting, you cannot lose weight so you should just go ahead and eat everything you want.
Visualization is the most powerful approach that we can use to overcome these negative thoughts and impulses.
If you are plagued by negativity either from your own mind or from the reactions of friends and family to your diet, put an invisible shield up to block that negativity go ahead and visualize yourself at your desired weight as often as you can. It will work on the same playing field as all those negative voices and can annihilate their influence like nothing else can. One fact is it takes about 21 days to let a thought saturate in the brain. If said over and over again, as many times a day it will work.
It is important to practice every day – morning and evening if you can. You just need to take a few minutes in a quiet place and keep an image in the mind of your body at its ideal weight. Some people can do this easily, others need some help. If you have a photograph of yourself at your ideal weight in the past, you may find it easier to look at that. Or use a photo from a magazine but cut off the face of the person. You need to have a clear visualization of your own body, but thinner.
Visualization can also be done from the inside. Close your eyes and let your awareness focus on a part of your body – for example, your right thigh. Imagine it slowly becoming thinner in your mind’s eye. Then move to the other thigh, and on through the body.
It may help to start at the head and move down towards your feet, or vice versa. The main thing is to do what is the easiest for you.
As you go about your work or daily chores, think of yourself as already at your ideal weight.
