from the Health and Goodness newsletter of Jane Thurnell-Read]
Affirmations can be extremely useful in lots of situations. Here's a suggested use of affirmations to stop you snacking if you're trying to lose weight.
When you have finished your meal, say an affirmation out loud several times. Here’s some suggestions:
· “I’ve now finished
eating till ....”
· “I have eaten enough food to last me till ….”
· “I’m full and do not need to eat till ….”
You complete the sentence with whatever is suitable given the circumstances, e.g. lunch / dinner/ 7.00 pm/ till I'm really hungry again/ etc.
If you don’t like these, vary it till you find something you can say with real conviction.
You can, of course, adapt it to other situations and other activities.
