Giving Yourself a Gift

The holiday season is here and along with it comes the season of gift-giving. We make our list for holiday giving, but one person we often leave off that list is ourselves. We are told that it is selfish but really it is an act of self-appreciation, self-care, and self-love to give yourself a little something during holiday season.That gift doesn’t have to be all wrapped-up in a bow under the tree — it can be an investment in yourself and your own well-being.

If you would like to be trimmer or just feel better about your body, why don’t you put yourself on your holiday list and give yourself the gift of better weight-management through hypnosis? With my 12-week course starting in January you can:

  • Feel better about yourself and your body.
  • Make small incremental changes toward a healthier you.
  • Get the relaxing benefits of hypnosis.
  • Change your relationship with eating and food.
  • Reduce your weight without crazy, unhealthy, unrealistic diets.
  • Find different ways to fill your emotional needs.
  • and feel great while you lose weight!

You deserve all the benefits of this group. So give yourself this gift for the end of this year and the start of something new!

Five tips for Thankful Holiday Eating.

Thanksgiving can be a difficult time to focus on weight reduction. We have our favorite dishes available, the stressors of family coming, missing family who can’t come, preparing a meal to share, and just thinking up what you are going to say when asked “What are you grateful for?” Here are some things to help you manage during the upcoming holiday:

  1. Be curious about why you are eating. Before you even taking a bite or putting something on your plate ask yourself: How hungry am I? What am I feeling if I am not hungry? Why do I feel that way? What other then eating can I do to satisfy that feeling? Taking on this curiosity about why you are eating can help you manage your eating and your feelings. This year you might want that second piece of pie because you are missing part of your family due to travel restrictions. It is a better use of your time to call them or imagine them healthy and happy then to reach for something your not really hungry for.
  2. Savor every bite of food. Take your time and really taste your food. The slower you eat the more you are going to realize when you are done eating. You will also enjoy your food more. Let your eating become a mindfulness practice. 
  3. Redirect your “food pushers.” The people who care about you, and who may have cooked for you, may see you eat less than usual and try to push food on you. Politely tell them you are not hungry for more and redirect them to talk about what is going on with them. “I am not hungry for food right now, but I am hungry to know about how you have been.”
  4. Enjoy your time with family. If it is nice out, go out for a walk or play an outdoor game. Play a board game or watch a show or a movie together, if it is not nice out. Make the focus on fun rather than food. 
  5. Have your favorite dessert. I know it sounds crazy to say this when we are trying to reduce weight but denying yourself your dessert can make you want it more. Denying yourself any dessert makes you want it more and then when you have a less willpower-driven moment you find you have eaten it, and even more then you need. A whole pie instead of a small piece of pie is a big difference! Instead of getting into this cycle, decide on having a little of your favorite, savoring every bite. Try to eat it as slowly and mindfully as you can. You may even find you leave some on your plate.

Wherever you are, be forgiving with yourself. Even if you “slip up” or indulge a bit on a holiday, it is just one day, and you can continue to be mindful about your eating and your relationship with food going forward.

Wishing everyone a safe, happy, and healthy holiday!

A Quest for Freedom

I get the amazing opportunity to help people through hypnosis every day. Recently, I have noticed a trend coming from my hypnosis clients. In a time when they feel boxed-in by the circumstances of life and the changes we are all dealing with, they are looking for ways they can regain their freedom. Those people coming to me are looking for ways to take back control over their lives from what is restricting them in some way.

The most prominent request lately has been for help to quit habits they can no longer support since life has changed, the most popular being quitting smoking. Most people are wearing masks to protect the others around them and they have noticed that because they smoke they feel like they can’t get adequate breath through their mask. This slows them down from doing the things they used to have energy for. They have realized they have been reducing their lung capacity by smoking and quitting is one way they can reclaim their freedom.

They want to have the energy to do things they enjoy again, to be around after the pandemic to be with their loved ones again. They want to enjoy the greater health and wealth that comes from being a non-smoker. I have had many clients who have felt this way and they have found great results from working toward their goals with me. If you are ready to experience that freedom, sign up for a free consultation where we will see if we are a good fit to work together to help you achieve your goals.
