Hi Everyone and Happy Holidays—
I hope that you are all enjoying the best of the season with family and friends.
Many of you told me how helpful the Pre Social Event Hypnosis Session was for abstaining from refined foods and eating too much. I love to hear that it was helpful—THANK YOU!!
PLEASE SIR, MAY I HAVE SOME MORE?
Because it was so helpful for many, I am offering up a second helping of this hypnosis session for you to use these next couple of weeks along with a few tips to stay focused and feeling fabulous over the holiday.
EASY TIPS AND PRE SOCIAL GATHERING HYPNOSIS
Here are a few helpful and easy tips to follow with the free 6 minute pre-holiday party hypnosis session to help you succeed in staying in line with your health and weight management goals these next few weeks.
CREATE A VISION: Take a breath and visualize how you want to feel New Year’s Day. Really imagine yourself feeling light and healthy and proud of yourself for staying mindful with your eating this weekend. This helps get your brain excited about achieving the goal and will help you overcome those many moments when you might be tempted to overindulge.
TAKE A MINDFUL BREATH BEFORE EVERY MEAL: Before you begin to fill your plate, take a breath, look at your fist and register that this is the size of your stomach! Fill your plate with healthy choices and a few holiday favorites in very small portions—after 3 bites your experience diminishes so a little is enough—really.
EAT, THEN TALK—DON’T DO THE TWO TOGETHER: I learned with my own 40 pounds weight loss over 20 years ago to focus on eating and enjoying the food and noticing how full I was and then to switch my attention to the conversation. When we do both at once it is easy to ever eat.
TAKE A MOMENT EVERY MORNING TO THINK YOUR HEALTH GOALS THROUGH: The holidays are busy and distracting and it’s easy to let our mind get focused on other things and away from your health. The 6 minute Healthy Social Gathering session I am enclosing will help you prepare for those gatherings these next couple of weeks.
Listen to this session on the morning of or right before social events. DO NOT USE WHILE DRIVING!
Feel free to share the download and tips with your family and friends so that everyone can share in a healthy, light and mindful holiday. Also, if you have a moment, last week the New York Times wrote about the growing popularity of hypnosis, especially for weight loss: You Are Not Getting Hungry…Using Hypnosis to Avoid Holiday Weight Gain
Finally, I am so grateful for this inspiring and supportive community. Thank YOU!
