Do you ever find yourself looking at others in either a physical or emotional sense comparing yourself to them? Do you look at what you’ve accomplished and what you own and measure your success by peering into the world of others and seeing what they have and have accomplished? When you do this, do you get down on yourself believing you are “less than others” and feel so discouraged that it makes you feel depressed? If so, you are not running your own race in life, rather you’re skipping to the beat of others; only “they” don’t even know they have created this rhythm for your life! Why do people feel the need to compare themselves to others? Here we take a look at this common barrier to improvement and how to manage it.

Are there times in your life that get real trying for you where you wonder, “How the heck am I going to get through this?” Do you find that as stress builds and builds in your life that you have difficulty coping with any and all situations, even the small ones? Well, it’s time to learn to stop sweating the small stuff so to speak! There will be times in your life when you feel that the proverbial wheels are falling off.

secrets to weight loss image

There are two important secrets to weight loss I’ve learned in helping my clients, and critical to know if you’re considering a weight loss program of any type. It doesn’t matter if its weight watchers, Virtual Gastric Band, Jenny Craig, weight loss hypnosis, South Beach Diet or North Beach Diet or any beach diet. Read this before you go further for a reality check and before you part with your hard-earned money. You need to decide if you want to lose weight permanently or just as a temporary measure to feel good for awhile. Unfortunately most people fall into losing weight temporary because losing it permanently takes a mind change and not a diet and… mental toughness and a word spelled C-O-M-M-I-T-M-E-N-T. Here’s why.

How many times have you heard the term “How in tune are you with your body” in connection with getting and remaining healthy? Our own Dr. Peter says this is the wrong question to ask, and a better one is “How in tune are you with your thoughts?” Our thoughts control our feelings which are shown to be a significant impact on the health of our bodies as we further understand what our bodies go through during times of depression and sadness and even anger. The benefits of “Getting in tune with your thoughts” are explored in the fifth installment of Dr. Peter’s Mind Body Connection series.

“The Power of Positive Thinking” and “The Secret” is two books that came to mind when thinking about the words intent and power of attraction as a way to get the outcomes you want. Whether you’ve read either or practiced their message doesn’t matter at the moment. You may even be skeptical and feel its all mumbo jumbo and the world and your fate is the way it is and you can’t influence it. I admit it’s a big jump from where most of us in working towards our goals feel manifesting them can happen just by thinking about them and asking the universe to take care of it for us. So instead let’s start in a different place.

Age Regression Hypnosis Therapy is a tool hypnotherapists use to identify and clear events of the past and associated imprints and their negative effects. These imprints can impact attempts at achieving a goal a client wishes to accomplish such as losing weight or having confidence. The premise of regression therapy is if previous attempts at losing weight or self-improvement have been unsuccessful then there is likely an event in the past triggering feelings that act as a barrier to change. Most times people aren’t even aware of the barrier, but sense something deep-rooted is obstructing and frustrating their progress.
