01 Feb Tips & Techniques to Losing Weight
I am going to begin the article by providing a disclaimer that I am neither a Medical Doctor nor a Nutritionist. I am a Registered Psychotherapist and Board Certified Hypnotherapist. The information I am going to be giving you in regards to tips on losing weight is not medical advice nor nutritional counseling. If you are serious about a weight loss program, it is important to be using one of the above professionals in conjunction with Sanlyn Wellness.
There are a number of great techniques and tips at Sanlyn to help you get into the right frame of mind to begin the quest to have that ideal healthy body. They are as follows;
Affirmations are a powerful way to help the mind manifest the desired body size and shape. Affirmations were popularized by the book “The Secret” which spoke about sending out an intention into the universe and allowing that to build itself into what was verbalized or visualized. The key to this technique is to stand in front of a mirror twice a day, in the morning and at night and come up with 3 different affirmations. The next step is to do them for 3 weeks and say each one up to 10 times with conviction, while looking at yourself in the mirror. An example of an affirmation could be “I am delighted with my new found curves that make me look slimmer”.
Exercise – The key with this tip is that the exercise should be done in conjunction to the weight loss program that incorporates Hypnotherapy. Experience with clients has shown that exercise should not be forced and used with the specific purpose of losing weight or the pressure that gets placed on the individual with this mindset creates a barrier to motivation and resentment may creep in if the weight is not lost quick enough. The exercise should be more fun based.
The best exercise that you can do on your own without going to a gym and can be implemented into your daily life is using stairs in a building as opposed to the elevator. Another tip is when you are walking to contract your stomach muscles. This creates leaner muscles and over a period of time changes can be seen. These techniques are automatic and it is a matter of adjusting your daily routines slightly.
Rapid Dieting is the worst possible thing to do when attempting to lose weight. A healthy weight loss in a month is around 8-11lbs. Crash diets could lead to a yo-yo effect of actually increasing your weight levels to more than what they were before you began a dieting process and this in turn could create major self esteem issues in respect of body image and failure thoughts. Focus on a goal that is reasonable and attainable to you.
These are just a few tips and techniques that Sanlyn Wellness uses with weight loss clients. Using both Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy I can help you shed those unwanted lbs or kgs.
