Trying Hypnosis For a Better Body

Hypnosis seems to be a crock a lot of the time, but I think that depends on a person’s mind set of what hypnosis can do for them. Over the past 3 months, I have been doing a “Metabolism Booster” 20 minute hypnosis. I think it helps, even if I haven’t shed pounds like crazy! If nothing else, having the session helps me zone out and de-stress (it’s also great for falling asleep before bed). It may seem silly, but maybe it’s easier to do in the comfort of one’s own home rather than in an office where you can spend hundreds of dollars.

I’ve used hypnosis for getting in better shape, even if I haven’t moved. The sessions that I began trying are done by Brenda Kaye. Her session for weight loss, or just getting motivated for exercise, is called “Expand your Mind, Shrink your Body.” Personally, I listen while I sleep and the experience still has an effect, but I think the effect is greater when I listen to it while I am awake and fall into the session.

Here are a few tips I learned in a public, non-recorded session with Brenda –

1) Avoid using the word “lose.”

Why? Because, from our social structure, we see losing as BAD. To remove this, using the words “shed” or “melt” helps. It keeps the mind from trying to hold on to that extra baby fat!

2) Don’t be afraid of relaxing and treating yourself to some “Me time.”

Why? Stress affects how you eat and how the body holds on to certain foods. Take a break, even if it seems like you’re swimming in work.

3) Put skeptical thoughts aside and just go with the flow.

Why? You don’t have to believe in it right away, but if you’re going to try just set any skeptical thoughts aside. They’ll make it very difficult to focus on the session and then the session is pretty useless. (I speak from experience, but once those thoughts are aside, you at least benefit from being less stressed out.) 😀

I haven’t tried other hypnotists yet, but Brenda Kaye’s works for me. She has many other types of session for just about anything that is bothering you. For more information, go to her the address below:

A Night of Fun

Going to the Karaoke Bar on a Saturday and hanging out with friends is always fun. Tonight though, there was also dancing! How can the night not be enjoyable when I’m the one standing up as “Starships” is being sung and everyone is dancing in their chairs? The answer: It is impossible for it to NOT be fun. What made the night better, was me walking around and pulling people up from their chair to dance. Karaoke Night became a dancing night as well, and was probably in the top ten moments of my life (at this point in time haha). The night ended on a high note, and everyone had tons of fun.

Hopefully they found it amazing and a moment to remember. 🙂
