Use the power of positive thinking to help you lose weight!

Positive Thinking to Think ThinWe hear it all the time -- how the power of our own imagination can actually help us to achieve our goals. From helping people overcome major illnesses to giving us the boost we need to shed those last pesky pounds, our mental powers are like our own personal miracle workers... if we learn how to use them as such.

So, how do we harness this mental power, and use it to help meet our goals -- particularly when it comes to diet and weight loss?

Here are some great tips designed to activate your imagination and help you achieve better overall health:

1. When tempted to “cheat” on a plan you’ve created, take a minute to inhale, close your eyes, and picture the “self” you want to be. Perhaps count to five to really let the image sink in. Focus on the details.

2. Find an older picture of yourself that illustrates where you would like to be, and place it in prominent spots in your house or at work. Allow the real picture to create a mental picture in your head that helps motivate and inspire you.

3. Create an online avatar of yourself, or alter an existing image of yourself (using digital photo-shopping, perhaps) to use as inspiration toward achieving your goals. There are severalo websites that let you create your own virtual model. Check out photo-altering sites like Weight Loss Pose or Weight View to magically create the you that you want to be!

This practice of positive thinking is not just about envisioning your perfect physical body. It’s also about imagining a stronger YOU.

Remember: What you believe, you can achieve " you just have to truly set your mind to it.
