The brain is the most powerful organ in the body. You must have heard, if you haven’t experienced the power of it already, is that you can do anything you put your mind too. However, you need to be realistic, you cannot really move a mountain now can you?
In the constant battle between mind vs. body, often it is the mind that has to take a back seat and the body wins. For instance, you may have set some goals for your self, but you get so tired, that your body cannot go ahead and achieve them. One of the main reasons why your body often lags behind is because of the bad lifestyle choices we make and our unhealthy eating habits.
The food we eat not only affects our body but it also helps make our minds stronger. The powers of make believe can indeed help you meet a lot of the goals that you set for your self. All you have to do is really, truly believe that you can make things happen. You can motivate yourself to wake up every morning and do some yoga, or take a run around the neighborhood, you can control several cravings, and you can even improve your vision.
If you start imagining things, your brain will stimulate itself in the exact same manner. In fact, there are a few techniques that you can use, to find that balance and tuning between mind and body.
Distract Yourself to Curb Food Cravings
When you develop cravings for certain foods that are unhealthy, or will not help our weight loss objectives, simply think about something else. Think about the last book you read, or a beautiful landscape. Distract yourself from the thoughts of anything related to food.
Envision the Workout and Get to the Gym
You may have spent many mornings switching off the alarm and going back to sleep, instead of getting up and going to the gym. That one-minute between sweet sleep and waking up is the toughest, but once it passes, you can be gold. In those few seconds, think about what your workout can do for you. Imagine the rush you will feel after a good and thorough workout, imagine the adrenalin pumping and be sure that you will wake up and get cracking.
Strike a Pose to Feel Confident
If you are worried about how you come across to people, you have to know that it is all in your mind. If you think you can be more confident, you indeed can. Simply be a person you want to be, assume a confident stance, and its known that hormonal responses will be triggered that will make you feel more self assured.
Really, who knew that just pretending could help you ‘move mountains’. Don’t underestimate the mind, and the power you have over it.
