Seeing Is Believing

If you can visualize it - you can do it!

Imagine being inside of yourself, looking out at the ideal result. That's the technique of visualization-the daily practice of envisioning your dreams as if they were already complete. As part of your health journey, it can be an invaluable tool towards reaching your weight goal. Some visualization techniques that can help:

  • Create a visual picture. Find a photo of yourself at your happy weight. Or select a picture of someone or something that represents a target weight goal for you. Now post that photo where you'll see it frequently throughout the day. It is a great way to visualize your "Why" and make it feel concrete, keeping you focused on success..
  • Index cards. Your journey towards lifelong transformation is a series of small steps. Using 3x5 index cards, write down the steps you need to focus on and review the stack of cards every morning and evening. Whether it's staying hydrated, getting an extra hour of sleep or engaging in activities of Healthy Motion, visualize yourself doing each micro Habit of Health for 15 seconds. It will keep your transformation journey top of mind as you go through your day.
  • " Use affirmations to support your visualization. An affirmation is a statement that evokes not only a picture, but the experience of achieving that goal. An example: "I'm attending my wedding and people are telling me how beautiful I look!" Repeat it frequently as you continue your health journey, and look for small victories to celebrate on your way to a healthier life..
  • Expect results. Through writing down your goals, using the power of visualization and repeating your daily affirmations, you can make great things happen. All of these techniques allow you to change your beliefs and opinions about yourself, which is essential for a successful Optimal Health journey.

The benefits of visualization are many-inspiring and motivating yourself, helping you focus on your goals better, building self-confidence. Ask me how we can put visualization to work for you!
