New Year’s is not too far away. Undoubtedly, as we see every year, the most popular New Year’s resolution will be to lose weight, get in better shape, change one’s diet, or some variation thereof. We are nearing October now. Maybe you made that same resolution last year. Are you still sticking to it ten months later? For most people, the answer to that question is, “no.”
Before you print off the latest weight loss diet schedule you find online, spend money on fitness magazines, or lug home the latest and greatest in home gym equipment you might want to take a look at these simple tips to increase your chances for success next year, and help you to achieve that body you are looking for.
1) Take a close look at your work-life balance.
One of the most popular reasons for weight gain or the inability to lose weight is finding one’s work-life balance out of whack. While most people would have a hard time saying that they love their job, how do you feel about yours? Are you bringing unneeded stress home with you? Are you having restless nights of sleep because of job worries? While it is hard to recommend anyone go looking for a new job in today’s economy, there may be changes at work you can make to relieve some of the tension.
What about your relationship? Is it a healthy and loving relationship or is it also a source of stress and aggravation? Might be time for a change.
2) Instead of focusing on following a diet, focus on eating healthy.
Diets fail for a large multitude of reasons. Diets often force you to eat foods you would otherwise never eat or consider eating once you have completed the diet schedule. If you do not like the food in the first place, you are far less likely to stick to it for any length of time.
Rather than following some difficult to stick to diet, focus on eating healthier foods and eliminating obviously unhealthy foods. Remove things like candy, white bread, fried foods, and heavy pastas from your meals. Drink more water and eliminate soft drinks from your diet. If fruits and vegetables are lacking from your diet, start using them for snacks instead of things like chips and cookies.
Just this simple change will provide noticeable changes in your body and energy levels.
3)Keep a diet journal.
It can drastically help to keep track of things like how much water you drink, the food you eat, and even where you are emotionally before diving into a plate of unhealthy food.
Never heard of Theta Healing? Theta Healing is a holistic healing technique using quantum physics to access healing energy vibrations. Some say it gives you the ability to heal in an instant. It can heal physical, mental, and even spiritual problems in your life. Negative thoughts and beliefs from a childhood trauma can lead to poor eating habits and patterns later in life. By dealing with and overcoming those issues, it can lead to not only healthier eating habits, but also an emotionally healthier lifestyle.
