Can Being Happy Help you to Release Weight?

Can Being Happy Help you to Release Weight?

 We’re seeing a lot of books out there  now discussing the importance  of happiness. Well  from a Law of Attraction  perspective we understand that the  better we feel, the more we  raise our vibration  level, which in turn puts us more  in alignment with our desires.
 

  But how about from the scientific perspective?

 According to over 200 research studies, happiness is linked to normal body weight,  healthier blood fat profiles, lower risk of heart disease,  and low blood pressure.  Additional studies in people over age 60 show feelings of happiness and enjoyment  is associated with improved mobility and a lower risk of developing a disability over an eight-year period.

Let’s not just stop there, but positive emotions can improve your immune system and have an effect on your genes, YES your genes! Epigenic research has shown that we have the ability to “turn genes on or off” by our  environment and our thoughts/feelings.

Do You Feel Like You’re Running on a Hamster Wheel?

Do You Feel Like You’re Running on a Hamster Wheel When it Comes to your Weight?

Do you sometimes feel like you’re a hamster running

continuously on the wheel that is your life? Just like the

hamster, you get caught up in the routine of life, the busy-ness of life, and the

habit of everyday life. But what would happen if you decided to step off of that wheel

and break free from the patterns and negative habits that have become

part of your “reality”?

 

Can you imagine what that would look like, or better yet, feel like?

If just for today, you take the time to envision and feel what you would like your

life to be like. What would your body look like? What negative energies would you

release in this new “reality”? What relationships would you be focusing on and which

ones would you let go of? What kind of job do you have? Is it one that truly lights you up?

How are you spending your free time? Do you see yourself having more free time?

How are you really enjoying life? Have your embraced the magical back into your life?

Who have you forgiven, and what have you made peace with?

 

 

It’s important to not get caught up in the hamster wheel, but that’s exactly what

happens when we lose sight of the energetic parts of ourselves. The seven steps of

my Synergy System, not only are steps to release weight without dieting, but also

pertain to anything you desire to transform in your life. If you’re wanting to explore

the seven steps of the Synergy System, and get started Tuning and Discovering what’s at

the heart of your weight issues, then sign up below for the complimentary

Tune In and Discovery Guide and Journal to get started with Synergy today.

 

 

Getting Unstuck?

Getting Unstuck

Do You Feel Stuck? It happens to the best of us. We hit a plateau or we just seem to lose steam. We drop our attention from our goal. Even if you don’t feel like you hit a plateau but you do feel like your focus has been waning, there are many things you can do to get through this.

Here are a few practices I recommend:

    • Change it up!  Change up your routine a bit. There’s nothing more invigorating than change.

 

    • Begin your day with Intention setting meditations. Setting intentions at the start of your day sets the tone for the rest of the day. Remember the key to intention setting is putting it in the present tense as if it has already happened, and make sure to feel it! An example – “I am so happy and grateful now that I am more mindful and present during mealtimes.”

 

  • EFT – Here are some tapping phrases you could use to get unstuck, using the conversational tapping method:

“I feel like I’ve lost focus on my weight release goal”

“I feel stuck”

“I’ve lost a bit of steam and motivation”

“It would be great if I could get unstuck”

“I always feel so good when I am on track with my goals”

“I just have to start”

“Baby steps are okay”

“I can start there”

 

“It’s going to feel really good to be motivated again”

“I am feeling a little bit better now”

“It will be easy to get on track again”

“I just need to be more mindful”

“That’s easy to do”

“I can tap for 5 minutes a day, to help me move through this”

“I’m excited to be getting back on track!”

“I can do this!”

 

  • Using Afformations – Afformations just like affirmations, focus on the positive. The key difference however, is asking a positive question rather than using a statement. Based on Noah St. John’s book The Secret Code of Success, an afformation is the formulation of a question to empower your mind. Rather than just stating something is true (as with an affirmation) an afformation asks why it is true. Our minds appreciate questions and are eager to search for answers. He likens this process to an “automatic search function” in the brain. Doing afformations isn’t necessarily about finding the answers, although sometimes your mind will offer up some. According to St. John, asking the questions helps you to positively manifest your desires.

 

Some afformations you could use are:

“How is that I am able to stay focused on my goal each and every day?”

“How is it that I am so motivated to achieve my goal?”

“Why is it that I am releasing weight so easily now?”

“Why was it so easy for me to get back on track?”

“How is it that I have no desire for sweets?”

“How did I get so good at being prepared?”

“How have I been able to release attachment to the outcome?”

“Why do I easily get enough physical exercise each day?”

“How is it that I have so much energy and vitality?”

“How is it that I fit into  size __ clothes?”

“Why is it that I only eat until I am satisfied?”

“How did I get so good at listening to my body’s signals?”

“How did I end up at my goal weight so quickly and with such ease?”

 

  • Join a Challenge. A challenge is a great way to get you back on track and to help you get your mojo back. I have put together the 6 Week Synergy Breakthrough Challenge and the energy is high and intentions are flying.

 

  • Get some additional support – enlist the help of a friend, coach, or group to help you get back on track and to help keep you accountable. Sometimes you need an accountability buddy to help put the fire under your butt.

 

  • Visualize yourself being motivated and doing all the things you used to do when you were focused on your goal. Periods of visualization throughout the day can be very transformative.

The Link Between Overeating and Lack Consciousness

The Link Between Overeating and Lack Consciousness

Because we are more than our bodies, many times our eating habits have deeper implications than what appears on the surface.

When you think of the act of overeating, it’s stuffing oneself, trying to fill a void, & never really getting enough. All of these aspects boil down to lack consciousness.

Now this may not apply to you, but it does warrant some looking into.

I remember a very clear memory of when I was a child at the dinner table, it went something like this – my parents, my sister, my brother, and I would all be sitting down for dinner, and my brother would always attempt to steal mine and my sister’s meatballs off of our plates. Now keep in mind, in our house food was always plenty! But I remember eating so fast, so that I could have seconds of the meatballs before my brother had a chance to eat them all. This is a very profound memory, because of the dynamic that existed in my traditional Italian, patriarchal family. As a young girl, the message I received was that the males ranked higher on the totem pole. My sister and I even joked and called my brother the Messiah.

In my last blog I talked about how sugar is not the enemy. Today I’d like to share with you my top 11 tips on how to make peace with sugar. Like I said before, sugar is not the enemy (well, it is if you’re a diabetic) but…

  •   * you overindulge on it
  •   * you are unable to control yourself around it
  •   * you become addicted to it
  •   * you use it as a substitute for other needs that aren’t being fulfilled

 

So to make peace with sugar, here are some must do’s:

Sugar is NOT the Enemy

Sugar is NOT the Enemy!

(Unless of course you have diabetes or food sensitivities to sugar)

 I know you have probably heard over and over again that you should avoid sweets at all costs. Or you may have been convinced that it’s better to substitute sugar with (poisonous cancer causing) sugar substitutes.

 

But I am here to tell you that sugar (natural, raw, organic sugar, and natural sweeteners like maple syrup) is not the enemy! Your body has amazing intelligence and it knows what to do with sugar (in moderation!). On the other hand, It does not know what to do with saccharine and all those other man made toxic science projects.

The Book That Kept Falling Off My Bookshelf

The Book That Kept Falling Off My Bookshelf

 

one

  If you’re new to my blog you may not know this fact about me – I am a huge book lover! I am a total self-help junkie (in the best way possible), and I am always striving to better my life, and improve my emotional, spiritual, and physical health. So, with that being said, you can imagine how many books I have in my house! 

  Last week, in front of one of my bookshelves, I noticed an old book on the floor in front of the bookcase.  I put it back in it’s place on the shelf, and hours later I found it on the floor again, I picked it up and returned it once more. The next day, the same thing. The day after that my partner noticed it too and mentioned that he keeps putting it back on the shelf only to find it on the floor again.

  Seeing this as a MAJOR sign from the Universe, I decided not to put it back on the shelf,   but to read it instead.

I am about half way through the book and am paying special attention to any messages that I may need to hear.  The book is Richard Bach’s One.

The Zen of Weight Release

The Zen of Weight Release

 


EssjayNZ / Foter / CC BY-NC-SA

The Zen of Weight Release has nothing to do with losing weight. When you think of yourself “losing weight”, do you have visions of yourself at the gym in baggy sweat pants, sweating in all the wrong places, and gasping for your next breath of air, while the twenty something sorority girl running full speed on the treadmill besides you is barely breaking a sweat? 

 

Do you also associate losing weight with deprivation, diets, long forgotten willpower, and anal retentive portion control?

 

Well that’s how many people envision losing weight. When you lose the word “lose”, and replace it with “release” you are one step closer to letting go of extra weight. 

 

The Zen of Weight Release is not a physical discipline that can be taught by the weight trainer at the gym, or by your Weight Watchers Instructor. The Zen of Weight Release is actually the practice of studying the mind and seeing into the nature of who you are.   read more

Feeling Stuck? 5 Ways to Jumpstart Your Weight Release!

Feeling Stuck? 5 Ways to Jumpstart Your Weight Release!

We all have periods where we get in a rut or we feel stuck and unmotivated. Well the best way to

change that and to kickstart your weight release is to change things up a bit! The human body is

designed to automate systems and actions which is a good thing for the most part. However, over

time, the body and brain work together to create and sustain patterns and behaviors that may not

be in your best interest. Habits get created and deeply ingrained, and they become difficult to break.

You become hard wired as a result of your thoughts, feelings, and actions of the past. Every time you

react to an emotional or environmental trigger in a certain way, the pattern of behavior gets more

deeply ingrained and automatic. But don’t fret, there’s good news, you can reboot and re-program!
