Visualise your weight loss success
To lose weight, you need to see yourself already there and work backward. You need to visualise your weight loss success. Visualisation is still not common practice for most people, but those who are really serious about achieving goals are using visualisation every day.
In this blog post, I will write about how to visualise your success for your best weight loss results. Moreover, at the end of this post, I will give you a weight-loss visualisation audio track that you can download for free and listen to it every day, ideally in the morning before your workout.
What is visualisation and the science behind it
According to the best-selling author Jack Canfield, visualisation is the act of creating compelling and vivid pictures in your mind of what you want to accomplish. Visualisation works every time if it has been backed up with systematic and consistent work. Please read this sentence one more time.
When you visualise your goals as already complete every day, it creates a conflict in your subconscious mind between what you are visualising and what you currently are. From Jack’s excellent book, The Success Principles, your subconscious mind works to resolve that conflict by turning your current reality into a new, more exciting vision.
Moreover, visualisation focuses your brain by programming its RAS, in short for the reticular activating system, to notice available resources that were always there but were previously unnoticed.
How to visualise your weight loss success?
Now, let’s focus on a more specific area, the area of weight loss. Visualise your weight loss success practice consists of three essential parts:
- The right timing
- The right place
- The right track
These three parts are instrumental for visualisation to work. Let’s explore each element in more in-depth below.
The right timing
The most optimal time for weight loss visualisation practice is before your workout. There is one exception: you should do the visualisation every day even if you don’t have scheduled your workout session on that day.
Most people do their visualisation practice in the morning just before their workout. It doesn’t really matter when you do the workout but try allocating 5 min before exercising for your weight loss visualisation practice.
The right place
It’s essential you pick a quiet place where nobody will disturb you. A right place is quiet place, ideally your room. However, if you can find other calm places inside or outside, that’s absolutely fine. One tactic that I advise you to do is put your phone in airplane mode when you visualise your weight loss success.
Sit in a comfortable chair or a cushion, whatever it’s comfortable for you, with your back straight and not hunched. Take a deep breath and relax your muscles.
The right track
Put up an instrumental audio track that is inspiring and uplifting but not theatrical. You want the melody to be soft and not filled with heavy tones. For the best results, I suggest a guiding audio track to guide you through the whole process of the weight loss visualisation.
For this instance, we at TrainChampion recorded a guiding weight-loss visualisation audio track, and we are giving you for free. Just click on the DOWNLOAD FOR FREE button below and get your guided audio visualisation track.
Visualising your weight loss success is one of the best mental tools you can use to achieve your desired weight. As I have mentioned previously, it will work only if you do the necessary work and sacrifice.
In the end I would like to give you one word of caution, and that is before you start your visualisation practice; please have a personalised plan ready to follow. A plan consists of active lifestyle design, nutritional lifestyle design, personalised exercise and nutritional programme. When you have your plan prepared with action steps laid out, then it’s time to pair it up with your weight loss visualisation. If you do this, you will have a lean body that you will be proud of.
