When we are so preoccupied with body image and body issues, we don’t realize that that is all we care about most of the day. We find solace in thinking about food, or we fear the thought around it. And that’s not helping us. That’s when we resort to a diet mentality, taking control of what shouldn’t be and which doesn’t work. Because every time we fall off track to lose weight, our mind goes into a spiral of all sorts of negative thoughts that are not helping at all. What’s worse is we get used to the idea of it being a normal thing in life without realizing it’s the one contributing to relationship friction and self-confidence issues.
How about being fully present, conscious of what’s happening around and being able to manage and decide not with your emotions but with self-awareness? Even with the many things running through your mind, you can remain unruffled and find tools that help you calm your mind and be at peace with yourself. That’s how Hypnosis enables you to find lasting freedom and happiness.
“Sometimes you make a mistake, but I’m 100% sure that the way to fix the mistake is not by having a tailspin happen that has you start and do all or nothing, thinking all the way back into diet mentality — that which actually heals nothing. It’s just another band-aid until the next time that you’re off the diet again. And you’re back into the guilt and shame and trigger spiral. It’s absolute madness. And there’s a way out of that.”
