Less Shame And Guilt
Practicing mindfulness meditation enables one to be aware of their feelings. It can be very effective for restraining stress eating which leads to increased body weight. This is because it focuses one on being aware of his feelings and thoughts and so when stressed and one opts for stress eating, the mind will tell the person that the reason he is eating is because of the stress and not hunger and that person will avoid that, hence controlled eating habits. This in return will save the person from feelings of guilt that they allowed the stress they were going through getting in the way of their dream body size.
How To Meditate For Weight Loss
Find a quiet place and make yourself comfortable. Close your eyes and hold your breath in for a short while. Exhale. Breathe consciously while focusing your thoughts on your breathing in and out. If the mind wanders, try and bring your thoughts back. Imagine the body you want to have as you continue listening to your breathing. Do this for about ten minutes.
As you finish up, realize how easily your mind wandered off and acknowledge how you brought it back to your breathing. This will let you know that you are in charge of your body and you can control it to what you want it to be. With frequent practice, this will feel normal and natural.
