Change Your Mind

Change Your Mind

In The Healthiest Year of Your Life, Kevin Gianni documents his experience with weight loss, but his approach did not focus so much on his body than it did on his mind. He emphasizes the necessity of changing one’s thoughts as the key to success in altering some personal aspect.

Through yoga, hypnosis and a few other lifestyle changes, Gianni was able to meet his body image goal, which in turn, positively affected the rest of his life.

He says that once you see the outcomes, “you start to believe that you can change,” and that your goal is, indeed, possible! “The important thing to do is go into that and remember that feeling of being able to change and bring it into other areas of your life when you want to.”

What can we take away from Gianni’s specific goal-oriented changes? The realization that the smallest positive change in life can bring about positive changes elsewhere because of the power of optimism and a healthier outlook. There is some real momentum! Do you find that making one change gives you momentum to pursue another? [Natural News]
