Holiday treats and parties have ended, the New Year is in full swing, but it’s possible your mind is still in ‘sugar mode’... and craving some sweet, sweet goodness.
The time of dinner parties, delicious cakes and foodtastic experiences is over… Now, the time has begun to play the infamous post-holiday game: who can still button up their old pair of pants?
It can be a little bit frustrating realizing you might have gained a few pounds more than you would have liked, especially when all those holiday treats are hard to resist - besides how are you gonna just reject a piece of cake from your 95 year old aunt? You’re not a monster! But you might have some monster cravings now….
Here’s the good news! Our mind is a powerful tool that can break this vicious circle of overeating and craving – the healthy way!
It’s scientifically proven that specific mental imagery can successfully suppress food cravings if done repeatedly. Food craving reduction techniques like performing a visual task, engaging a series of non-food scenes or engaging in a favorite activity can successfully reduce your desire for food. We recommend you to try this simple food craving reduction technique by famous British hypnotherapist Paul McKenna – the number one hypnotherapist in the world renowned for helping people treat the most difficult problems.
Whenever your mind is telling you that sugar is the only way out, listen to some of the Bellabeat guided meditation exercises or try this simple routine:
Stay right where you are at this moment. Think of any situation that makes you feel emotional and makes you want to eat.
Now tap with your two fingers under the eye 10 times.
Then, tap with your two fingers on a collarbone 10x.
And again under the eye 10x.
Tap on the side of your hand 10x.
And then roll your eyes in 360’ circle, keeping your head still.
Then roll your eyes in the opposite direction.
This is not a distraction. This is changing the way your brain processes its thoughts and feelings. Now, drink a glass of water and smile!
This simple yet effective Tapping method shows you how to handle your food cravings using your body’s own acupuncture points. Tapping is simple and painless. It can be learned by anyone. You can apply it to yourself, whenever you want, wherever you are. It’s less expensive and less time consuming than acupuncture.
Most importantly, it gives you the power to put control over your destiny into your own hands.
