cold, wintry days ahead for most of us, the prospect of
braving the elements to get to the gym or go for a run does
not sound appealing. Maintaining motivation to stick to
weight loss goals when everyone else wants to hibernate is
easy with hypnotism for weight loss.
people who are trying to get back into shape agree that motivation
is particularly difficult when the weather changes, so what
if you could stay committed to your diet and exercise plan
simply by watching a self hypnosis weight loss DVD or
listening to a CD?
yet, a hypnotherapy
weight loss program can reduce your cravings too.
for weight loss works simply, but effectively, by
guiding you to a state of deep relaxation during which your
subconscious mind can more readily accept suggestions, such
as the ones that will keep you motivated to stay on your
fitness track, even in the midst of winter.
is a known fact that if a person exercises, it will speed up
his/her metabolism and increase the rate that weight is
lost. Some of the most successful hypnosis for exercise
motivation techniques comes from Neuro-Linguistic
Programming, or NLP.
NLP, the unconscious is programmed
to use the same exact thought processes that are creating a
problem, to eliminate it. In other words, the same thought
processes that the unconscious utilizes to create cravings
and oral compulsions could be used to completely eliminate
them! And similarly, the same processes can be used to
increase your motivation to exercise.
is a NLP technique that can be used to give you a
"switch" for triggering feelings and behaviors.
Creating a weight loss hypnosis anchor works simply and
effectively like this: A qualified hypnotherapy weight loss
practitioner will safely guide you into a tranquil hypnotic
state. Then the consulting hypnotist will ask you to identify a
time when you were happy and excited about anything in your
of this exercise
is to remember and re-experience as many sensations as
possible from various times in your life when you felt
motivated and eager to do anything at all. Then, the weight
loss hypnosis therapist will ask you to anchor those
feelings by simply touching two fingers together.
will be asked to use your imagination to see yourself exercising
and enjoying it. As you create this mental image, you'll
trigger your anchor by touching those two fingers together
again. When you do that, your unconscious mind will connect
the feeling of excitement and eagerness from the other
memory, to the thought of exercising.
point on, any time you wish to feel motivated to exercise,
you can simply trigger your anchor and re-experience those
same positive feelings that will motivate you to workout.
NLP in weight loss hypnosis can even be used to discourage
behaviors, so you can easily overcome 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 address the root cause
of weight gain for many of us, namely a lack of self-esteem.
In a relaxed state, you can be
given post-hypnotic suggestions that will build your
self-esteem as you lose each pound. (The lack of self-esteem
is a big factor in being overweight.)
people wonder if, after trying every fad diet and buying
every piece of exercise equipment on the market, something
as straight forward as weight loss hypnosis can work for
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 generally are not hypnotizable.
the rest of us, hypnotism for weight loss can actually help
us look forward to working out and eating healthily. That
said, the biggest proponent for success in any fitness
routine, whether it includes weight loss hypnosis or not, is
wanting to achieve
your weight loss goals.
related note, that is exactly why you can not force someone
to undergo weight loss hypnotherapy simply by giving them
suggestions. If someone is resistant to an idea, no amount
of weight loss hypnosis they hear or see will be effective.
Referring to the NLP explanation above, if someone does not
have a memory of feeling motivated or positive, they can
still be successful with NLP and hypnotherapy because they
can imagine what it would feel like if they felt that way,
and anchor the imagined feelings.
if you are like many of us and find your motivation
dwindling as the temperatures drop and the days get darker,
weight loss hypnosis can help regain (or maintain) your
enthusiasm for carrying out and finally achieving your
