As our 12-Week Challenge launches this week, weight-loss hypnotherapist Avril Carpenter tells WHO, "What happens in our head directly influences our body.”
“Mental prep is often the missing link in weight loss.”
Start afresh with the “f ” word. That's right, "Forgiveness".
“Increase your chance of success in the 12-Week Challenge by wiping the slate clean of all your previous fitness endeavours: start anew with forgiveness. Release past fitness failures and you’ll have plenty of fresh momentum for this new journey.”
“By thinking negatively, our body floods with adrenaline and cortisol, which causes our body to store weight.”
Practice saying no. “A vital part of mental preparation for weight loss is learning to say ‘no.’ You need to get comfortable with honouring yourself and your newly emerging healthy habits. Your success is dependent on your new habits being more important than your need to please someone else. Respect your needs and others will too.”
