Guest Blog: Relax Yourself Into Weight Loss

Wednesday 18 September 2013

Are you one among the millions of people who go for a chocolate brownie or a plate of hot samosa when you are stressed?

You eat a healthy breakfast at home, and maybe also pack lunch from home. All is going well, as planned, until - it is 4:00 pm in the evening and you are feeling the pressure from your project deadline. You go to the cafeteria and order a plate of hot pakora and extra strong tea (malai maar ke). You have your snack and instantly you feel calmer.

Learn to handle stress - this is easier said than done.
With our fast-paced life and increased pressure, most of us are "stressful eaters". During times of high stress, we attempt to fulfill our psychological needs with food.

A better way is to respond to stress in the right manner rather than reacting to it by stuffing our mouths.

Here are few Stress Management Tips to heal stress related weight-gain:

1. Become aware when you are stressed or anxious.

2. Ask yourself this question – Am I eating because I am hungry or because I am stressed?

3. Find a distraction when you are tempted to eat due to anxiety.

4. Do not skip any meals.

5. Keep healthy snacks handy at home and in office.

6. Start maintaining a food journal - today.

7. Practice yoga / meditation / guided imagery and other relaxation techniques.

8. Get enough sleep.

9. Most important of all, write this down on a post-it and stick it on your computer and at home:
Thank you for this wonderful gift of life and the abundant treasure it holds for me.

Remind yourself that you are a loving child of the Universe. Everything that is happening to you, is happening for your best benefit (no matter how stressful it may seem at the moment).

I would also recommend regular consumption of Divine Noni Juice. It is a natural wholesome product. It helps to attain optimum mind-body balance.
So, begin to relax and let go of the excess weight you are carrying.
