Some Excellent Reasons Why You Should Quit Smoking

You should be ready and willing, and wanting to quit, when you finally decide to quit smoking. Quitting smoking is one of the most important steps you can take in order to help yourself to improve your general health.

The very first thing that you do when you decide to become a non-smoker, is to give yourself the most precious gift a smoker is able to give you, which is the gift of prolonging the remainder of your natural life. Making this momentous decision will also give you the gift of improving your general health; and also the gift of vastly improved self-esteem and self-confidence that comes with better health. You will also experience a profound sense of comfort and peace of mind, simply by knowing that you have helped your health to improve in such a positive way.

When you quit smoking, you will feel so much happier and so much healthier, because once you have begun this journey, you will not be coughing quite as much; you will not have so many sore throats and things like a stuffed-up nose; you will have much more energy to do all kinds of things than you did before, and you will also find that you are able to do much more general exercise such as walking, running, or swimming than you could manage to do previously. Physical exercise is well-known for improving your health, and you will feel so much better generally.

You will greatly decrease your chances of getting some diseases, for example lung cancer, emphysema which is a lung condition that causes an unnatural stretching of the lungs; throat cancer, and heart disease. Should you need to be in hospital for surgery, having become a non-smoker will reduce the risk of catching infections, and having any breathing problems and complications from the general anaesthetic while you are having the surgery.

You will also find that your looks will greatly improve, because smoking tobacco can cause wrinkles which will make you look a lot older than you really are. You will no longer have the problem of tobacco staining your teeth, fingernails and toenails and making them turn yellow, and it will not be making your skin look very dull. And, of course, an added benefit is that you will no longer be smelling of tobacco smoke.

When you have begun your journey from tobacco smoker to non-smoker, try finding ways to help yourself to focus on your ultimate goal. Find support. Tell your family and friends that you have finally given up smoking. If you go out in the car with them, mention it, and they will know not to smoke. If you are at your place of work, inform the people that you work with that you are now a non-smoker, Befriend fellow workers who are also non-smokers to enjoy your tea breaks with, or spend your tea breaks doing something different like going for a walk in the fresh air on your own. This in turn will of course burn up some calories and will help to keep your weight down.

Avoid triggers that tempt you to smoke, like having an alcoholic drink such as wine or beer. So try drinking where smoking is prohibited, or simply choose non-alcoholic drinks. And when you have had a meal at home, and your custom was to end the meal by lighting up yet another cigarette, eat something healthy like an apple or some other piece of fresh fruit.

Use what is known as distraction techniques. Every time you find yourself getting bored at home and you start thinking it’s time to smoke, do something to keep you physically busy, like wash the dishes, watch something interesting on the television, have a long chat with someone on the telephone or take up some kind of exercise for half an hour or so.

How To Lose Weight Safely and Steadily in a Healthy Way

Major life changes such as “to lose weight” are notoriously difficult to achieve and maintain. Your eating habits as they are now have been instilled into you for many years, and you are probably still thinking, for example, that you must eat three healthy meals a day, and you must not skip eating your breakfast whatever you do. With the following tips from Worthing Hypnosis, we can help you to lose your excess weight slowly and safely.

The very first thing you can do to help yourself, once you have firmly decided to lose some weight, is to go and visit your family doctor or healthcare provider. They will be very pleased for you that you have made such a healthy and important decision. They will record your height and your weight, and they will check your blood pressure. Then they will sit down with you, and discuss your current health conditions, your medication, and any risk factors such as obesity. If you tell them you would like to take up some form of healthy exercise, they will help you to compile an easily maintained exercise plan to suit your personal needs, your circumstances and your physical capabilities.

Keep looking for relevant information, such as in healthcare articles online, or read some books about losing weight. Think of friends and helpful family members who will gladly help you in your quest, and will continue advising you along the way. When you start to successfully shift your excess weight, they will act as your cheerleaders for every milestone that you reach. You will be able to talk to them easily on the telephone or on the computer and discuss things like useful television programmes on healthy eating, and you can share healthy recipes that you can cook from scratch. Changes in your life such as losing weight are not half as daunting when you know you can pick up the phone and have a nice chat with a friend or someone in the family.

The next thing you need to do, is to start keeping a detailed Food Diary. Draw up three columns headed Breakfast, Lunch, and Supper and the times when you have these meals. Write down all the things that you eat and drink every day, and the times that you actually consume them. You should ideally also keep track of the number of calories you are consuming as you go along, and write these down also. While you are doing all this, you will find that you are more aware of everything that you are eating, (even the snacks, sweets and occasional chocolate bar that you eat). This, in turn, will help you to avoid unnecessary eating such as in-between meals, or when you are not actually hungry.

When you have been keeping your food diary for a couple of weeks, carry out a review of all your eating habits that you currently have, and write down a list of them. This will help you to find your bad eating habits, and may we mention here, that hypnosis is well renowned for helping people to conquer bad habits. You might find, for example, that you always want to eat a chocolate bar or some other sugary snack like a cream cake to help you get through the mid-morning and mid-afternoon energy dip even if you are not actually hungry. When you feel that you really must have something to eat to keep you going, always write down how you were feeling when you wanted the sugary snack, such as if you were bored, tired, angry and/or depressed, for instance. Quite often you might find yourself wanting to eat due to something environmental that bothers you about where you live. What you could do, is replace eating the calorie-laden snack with a non-food activity, such as going for a quick walk, or making a useful telephone call.

Some useful ideas for helping you to keep yourself from eating these snacks, which could certainly be adding to your weight gain, are:- (1) Always plan your meals, to ensure that you eat a healthy, well-balanced meal. (2) Eat only when you are truly hungry, and not when you are tired, anxious, stressed or feeling fretful. A quick walk instead will help you to feel better. (3) If you drive to work every day, do not stop at the local corner shop and pick up a doughnut to eat in your tea-break. Wait for your lunch-time and eat then. (4) Eat more slowly. If you eat too quickly you may empty your plate from habit, rather than paying attention to whether you have stopped feeling hungry.

You will find hypnosis to be of great benefit to you in your quest to lose some weight. If you decide to try hypnosis, simply go and see a hypnotist and explain to them what it is that you wish to do. They will then give you a hypnosis session, either in person or online, and you will find this to be extremely comforting. They will talk to you in a soothing and relaxing manner, and when they think you are feeling very comfortable and ready, they will directly address your subconscious mind. They will give it a completely new set of instructions to follow regarding your wish to lose weight. When the hypnotist has ended the hypnosis session, you will feel absolutely wonderful, and you will also feel contentment, along with a wonderful sense of ease, comfort, and peace of mind. Week after week, as you obediently follow these instructions, your weight will drop almost automatically, and you will feel really pleased with yourself when you see that you are at last achieving great results.

You will begin to feel so much better and happier and much more content when you have managed to lose some of that stubborn weight. However, if you have already started your weight loss journey, and you are finding things difficult to shift, and nothing seems to be happening, you can always call us on 07904 605344 and we will be pleased to help you with hypnosis for your weight loss ambitions.
