Have you been thinking about starting to exercise? Is thinking as far as you have gone in actually getting started? Hypnosis can be a great motivator to get you moving.
If your are trying to lose weight, boost your mood, get into better shape physically or get your heart beating faster, nothing beats exercise. A study done in the U.K. reviewed several years of health research and found that 30 minutes of exercise on most days decreases the risk of depression, heart disease, obesity, certain cancers and type 2 diabetes.
Hypnosis can help you not only GET moving but KEEP moving. So if you need help in either area, make a appointment with a hypnotherapist. When you go to the appointment, be clear about your goals so they can be incorporated into your hypnosis session.
It helps to plan in advance what type of exercise you plan to do. You will not accept a hypnosis session that you would never do. I always tell people, "There is no use giving you the suggestion that you will do an hour work out at the gym every day if you hate the gym." Instead, think about what you could do that you actually enjoy. Think about what you did as a kid. If you liked to run and play, take a walk. Or ride a bicycle. Buy some roller bladesl. Fly a kite. You are much more apt to do something you enjoy.
Make your goals as specific as possible. Rather than thinking, "I need to exercise", think "I will walk four mornings a week from 9:00 till 9:30." Think about where you are going to do the exercise, if you enjoy nature your goal may be to walk in the park or on a nature trail. If you don't like to get too cold or too hot, grab a mile at the mall. Most mornings the mall is still relatively empty. Set goals for distance. If you walk at a brisk pace for 15 minutes, you should have walked about one mile. A pedometer is a great way to keep track of your distance. Health experts recommend 10,000 steps a day. Keep track of your progress. Draw a happy face on the calendar when you return. The reason children like gold stars is that they are motivating!
Whether your exercise goals include home equipment, going to the gym, videos or taking that walk, have them clear in your mind, so the hypnotherapist can make sure they are part of your hypnosis session.
Get going, get moving. Hypnosis helps!!
