Build Motivation With Weight Loss Hypnosis CDs
With chilly, winter days ahead for a lot of us, the thought of braving the elements to get to the gym or go for a jog does not sound too alluring. Keeping the motivation to stick to your weight loss goals when everyone else wants to hibernate is simple with self-hypnosis for weight loss.
Most us who are trying to lose weight agree that motivation is especially hard when the weather changes, so what if you could stay committed to your exercise plan and diet just by viewing a self hypnosis weight loss DVD or listening to a CD? Better yet, a self hypnosis weight loss program can ease your cravings too.
Hypnotherapy for weight loss works simply, but effectively, by guiding you to a deeply relaxed state during which your unconscious can more easily accept post-hypnotic suggestions, like the ones that will keep you motivated to stick to your fitness track, even in the midst of winter.
It is a fact that if a person exercises, it will speed up that person's metabolism and boost the rate that weight is lost. Some of the most successful hypnosis for exercise motivation techniques comes from Neuro-Linguistic Programming, or NLP. With NLP, the unconscious mind is programmed to use the same thought processes that are causing a problem, to get rid of it. Said another way, the same thought processes that the unconscious mind utilizes to create oral compulsions and cravings could help to completely eliminate them! And similarly, the same processes can be used to increase your motivation to exercise.
Anchoring is an NLP method that can be practiced to give you a "switch" for prompting feelings and behaviors. Creating an appetite hypnosis anchor works simply and effectively like this: A qualified hypnotherapy weight loss professional will safely direct you into a tranquil hypnotic state. Then the hypnotherapist will ask you to recall a time when you were happy and excited about anything in your life.
The intent of this exercise is to remember and re-experience as many sensations as you are able to from numerous times in your life when you felt motivated and eager to do anything you wanted. Then, the weight loss hypnosis therapist will ask you to anchor those feelings by simply touching two fingers together.
Next, you will be asked to imagine yourself exercising and enjoying it. As you produce this mental image, you'll trigger your anchor by touching those two fingers together again. When you complete this action, your unconscious will connect the feeling of excitement and eagerness from the other memory to the thought of exercising.
From that point on, any time you need to feel motivated to exercise, you can simply trigger your anchor and re-experience those same affirmative feelings that will motivate you to workout. NLP and weight loss hypnosis can even be helpful to discourage behaviors, so you can easily beat cravings. That sounds much easier and encouraging than beating yourself up for missing a workout or giving into temptation, doesn't it?
A successful weight loss hypnosis program will also deal with the root cause of weight gain for many people, namely a lack of self-esteem. In a relaxed state, you can accept post-hypnotic suggestions that will build your self-esteem as you lose more weight. The lack of self-esteem is a big reason for being overweight.
Many people wonder if, after attempting every new diet and buying every exercise implement on the market, something as straight forward as weight loss hypnosis can help them. The good news is that it has been found that all normal people are hypnotizable to a greater or lesser extent. However, it should be noted that people with less than a 70 I.Q. or those who are in an active state of psychosis or with senility typically are not hypnotizable.
But for the rest of us, self-hypnosis for weight loss can actually help us look forward to exercising and eating healthily. That said, the key proponent for victory in any fitness program, whether it includes weight loss hypnosis or not, is wanting to reach your weight loss goals.
On a related note, that is precisely why you can't force someone to undergo weight loss self-hypnosis just by giving them suggestions. If someone is against an idea, no amount of weight loss hypnosis they hear or see will be effective. Looking to the NLP explanation above, if someone does not posses a memory of feeling motivated or positive, they can still have success with hypnotherapy and NLP because they can envision what it would feel like if they did feel that way, and anchor those imagined feelings.
So, if you're like many of us and find your drive decreasing as the days get darker and the temperatures drop, weight loss hypnosis can assist you to regain (or maintain) your eagerness for carrying out and finally accomplishing your fitness goals.
