Don’t Work


Diets don’t work

We all know that the majority of dieters inevitably gain back all the weight they’ve lost and more.

Diet and exercise programs focus on calories in/ calories out. The motivation to take care of yourself is a positive, but diets do not work. Long term, lasting change requires an adjustment in thinking and behavior. Emotional eating is a coping mechanism, a survival tactic. This self soothing technique is learned early in life to numb uncomfortable feelings. Dieting focuses on the external rather than the internal cues which fuel overeating. The repetitive cycle of gaining and losing weight leads to feelings of hopelessness, shame, failure, and desperation.

The myth of the diet

We live in a time where technology and proficiency are coveted more than self care and emotional well being. Many of us were never taught essential skills that help to retain balance and composure during some of lifes most difficult struggles. At Self Image Studio, we embolden our clients with empowering belief systems which enable them to realize their best potential.

The new normal

There is no “One Size Fits All” standard of beauty. Fifty years ago, societal standards of beauty were quite different. The image of beauty is ever changing and the key to feeling comfortable in your skin is finding appreciation for who you are and what unique qualities make you different. Hypnotherapy opens your eyes to your inner beauty, your gifts, and your talents. Acknowledging your beauty from the inside out can have a monumental impact on the caliber of your life.

Healthy Over Skinny

Health is your best asset and can only be attained through high quality choices and a commitment to your own well being. Self care is not selfish. By creating healthy patterns of eating you will slowly begin to feel your vibrancy from within. Always prioritize health over the attainment of a certain physique. Nourishing foods, a sustainable exercise regimen, and overall self care are critical factors in becoming the best version of you.
