39 - Envisioning a Healthy Summer
3 days ago
We have a special treat this week as Christa King, Fitlandia’s Founder and CEO leads us through a Mind Zoning® session about envisioning a healthy summer. If you’re new to Fitlandia, Mind Zoning® is similar to a guided meditation where your brain is invited to relax, slow down and get focused, but differs from meditation because it incorporates the idea of creating a new thought pattern. Meditation is about clearing thoughts and creating peace and space in your mind whereas Mind Zoning® takes it a step further to create new neural pathways designed to support your healthy goals. Summertime Traps Summertime can be a trap for a lot of people. It’s the time when healthy patterns of eating and exercise take a back seat to vacations; BBQ’s, parties and fun. Many people begin the New Year with great energy and hope for a healthy lifestyle. They start losing weight and begin developing healthy habits, but when summer approaches, there’s a mentality of, “Yay, I’m on vacation, I can eat and drink anything I want.” The mindset is to eat and drink while on vacation and then get back on track once back home. The tricky part for those of us with sugar addiction or a reliance on alcohol, is that we may not get back on track and instead this behavior can drive us back to old patterns once our brain realizes how good the sugar or alcohol tastes and feels. Staying on Healthy Track Be moderate Be thoughtful Be mindful of what you eat and drink Plan activities during vacation or trips with friends, or BBQ’s or gatherings Build awareness Make good conscious choices that help support a healthy lifestyle Let’s Begin (**Caution** Do not drive or operate machinery while Mind Zoning) Find a quiet place where you will not be interrupted Position yourself in a comfortable seated position Taking a few deep breaths, allowing your mind and body to relax Starting at top of your head Closing your eyes Bring your attention to the very top of your head, imagine there is now this beautiful slow-moving cascading waterfall It comes over the top of your head so slowly and goes down the back of your hair, over your head and neck As it slowly passes by, notice how it is relaxing you and washing away any stress Now across
