Procrastination Don't look back

Procrastination is the art of keeping up with yesterday.  ~Don Marquis

Why do people procrastinate?  What is stopping you? 
 I could give you a number of reasons:

  • I would rather be doing something else
  • I dislike the task ahead
  • There is something better to do (more fun, enjoyable or  interesting)
  • The task is boring, repetitive or not important
  • It's too difficult, challenging, confusing, frustrating- "A pain in the neck to do"
  • It takes too long.....
  • I'm not good at it...
  • No Time....

Anything sound familiar yet?
These are reasons (or should I say excuses) we come up with,  but the job still needs or should be done.  Completing the task may lead to a healthier body and mind, a promotion, a new job, an improved grade in school, or the lead in the play or winning a game, more money, friendship, confidence and  love.   
So what is stopping you?

Are you ready to eliminate  your limiting beliefs?

What should I eat?

"To think too long about doing a thing often becomes its undoing".  ~Eva Young

Hypnosis is all about changing your mind to enable you to make better decisions AND TAKE ACTION....With that said when it comes to making good food choices.. we are consantly getting conflicting information about what is good for us to eat...I just read two articles from the same source and while one suggestion was to eat more of a particular food the other article suggested you stop eating that food altogether.

So now-you still don't know what is best to eat and you are THINKING MORE about FOOD.    No wonder being over-weight is a problem for so many.  Diets don't work in the long run, but you can change your habits.

Actions reflect your intent

"I have always thought the actions of men the best interpreters of their thoughts."  ~John Locke

This is the beginning of another new year and many people are thinking about the way life could be better, more enjoyable, healthier, more fruitful financially and emotionally.  Perhaps the thoughts involve major life decisions or changes.   Thinking about something and doing something, are two very different conditions.   I totally believe that problems need to be solved through a conscious decision-making process.  
  1. Identify the problem or situation
  2. Consider your values (what is truly important to you) and what outcome is your goal
  3. Brainstorm ideas that may solve the problem or help you to move forward. By the way consider everything..don't nay say or put any idea down..the one that may seems the most bizarre could be the best solution.
  4. Look at the pros and cons of each solution
  5. Choose what you think will be the best one.. the one that will lead you to your outcome (goal, final result etc) 
Nothing will happen if you don't act  (MOVE.. JUST DO IT!!)

anxiety about a diet

What some call health, if purchased by perpetual anxiety about diet, isn't much better than tedious disease.  ~George Dennison Prentice, Prenticeana, 1860

The goal in any weight loss program is that the client (you) become comfortable with their eating patterns and that food is not a constant thought. You are  satisfied with only the amount of food that your body needs in order to live a long, healthy life.   When food no longer is a substitute for fulfilling emotional needs, comfort and a way to deal with stress you will find that your eating habits have improved, you enjoy the food you do eat and you are conscious of the choices you make.   Although mindless eating patterns must be changed in order for weight loss to occur...that doesn't mean you stop thinking about the food you are you focus as you eat in the moment, savour the wonderful taste, flavors, sense the textures and enjoy each bite.
