The Power of Positive Thinking: Change Your Perspective, Change Your Life

 

When someone makes the decision to improve their life and begins taking the first steps on the journey to weight loss, physical fitness, and vibrant health, diet and exercise are the first areas to be considered. Unfortunately, many people stop there and don’t consider the larger picture. What we eat and how we move (or don’t move) are really by-products of a bigger, more complex world of our own creation. Most of us, however, are totally unaware of the power we hold in our own hands to shape our reality. You can live like a pauper or a king…it’s all in your thinking and perspective!

 

Join us for this support group where we will discuss positive thinking and how it can affect your daily actions…either leading you to stay trapped in unhealthy habits or directing you towards new avenues and the achievement of your goals and dreams!



After this support group, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe how the brain takes the body in the direction of your thoughts whether negative or positive.

  2. Assess how you currently view your reality.

  3. Reframe your current view into a more positive view of you reality.

  4. Identify action steps you can take based on your positive view of your reality.

Nighttime Eating Can Weigh You Down

 

Do you eat from the time dinner finishes until bedtime? Or do you find yourself going to sleep and then waking up during the night to eat? You may be feeling defeated, frustrated and out of control. Most people tend to do this secretly and struggle alone.

 

Join us for this support group where we will address both after dinner evening grazing, where you eat from the time dinner is over until bedtime as well as night eating syndrome, where you may wake up during the night to eat. We will help you understand these issues and offer real suggestions to help you find ways to break this cycle of eating.



After this support group, participants will be able to:

  1. Understand the difference between after dinner evening grazing and night eating syndrome.
  2. Describe common traits of individuals who experience these eating patterns.
  3. Identify when this type of eating pattern began for you.
  4. Explore why you feel you are gravitating toward this type of eating.
  5. Learn suggestions to break the cycle and return to healthier eating habits.
