I remember in elementary school when we would create collages in class with all the stuff that we liked and represented. The teacher would bring in stacks and stacks of magazines and we would go away cutting out all the cool stuff and organizing it on a huge piece of poster paper.
I wish I knew more about why we were creating these vision boards but at the time it seemed like a lot of fun and got us out of doing math for a couple hours. I wish I still had the same vision board I made back in my school days but at least I never forgot the concept.
Having a great vision board will not only be a natural fat loss tool but it will also allow you to take a step back and see what you actually want to do with your life. It doesn’t all have to be about losing weight and looking fabulous.
Maybe you also want to find your soul mate, travel, buy shiny and cool things, learn to play the guitar, have a family, find happiness, own your own business, etc. All of these dreams can be made into a vision board, and this will help keep you motivated to reach your goals.
All you really need to do is get a huge piece of paper and start checking out magazines or online images of stuff you want to achieve. Make a list beforehand so you know what you’re looking for.
Hang your vision board somewhere you’ll see it everyday, especially in the morning and times of temptations (such as the refrigerator!).
When you get up in the morning just stare at your vision board for a few minutes and picture yourself doing these things. This will help get your inspirational engines going and it will also remind you of why you’re getting out of bed to get your hustle on.
If you feel comfortable enough, be sure to share your vision board with somebody close and you can even encourage them to do a vision board too.
When you start to visualize yourself actually doing these things your mind will automatically believe that it’s real. Your mind can’t tell the difference between a thought and reality so choose your thoughts wisely. Most people think about negative stuff all day and wonder why they’re depressed and not going anywhere with their lives. Be different.
Doing this has helped give me a much more positive outlook on life, along with taking my natural fat loss journey to another level. But don’t think just staring at it everyday is going to do all the work for you, you still have to work your butt off to get there, but at least you’ll have the motivation to do it. Which is what 97% of people in the world lack.
Also going along with vision boards I would recommend getting going on a consistent mediation program. Meditating can do wonders for your stress levels and can help you refocus on the things you really want to achieve in life.
The biggest problem with meditating I’ve found is being consistent with it. It’s great at the beginning when you’re really fired up and you’ve meditated a few days in a row, but when you start getting a little lazy and would rather sleep that extra 10 minutes is where you get in trouble.
I really recommend meditating first thing in the morning and right before you go to bed. This will help you get your day started right and not filled with a bunch of negative stuff and you’ll sleep a lot better when you’re not dumping all the days junk into your thoughts. Ever lay in your bed for hours with your mind constantly talking to you? This is where meditating comes in.
All I do is mediate for 10 minutes in the morning and 10 minutes at night. It doesn’t have to be a huge thing, just make the extra 20 minutes in the day to do this and the rest of your day will reap the benefits.
If you’re looking to burn fat naturally then these are two awesome techniques that don’t use any fancy schmancy supplements that don’t even work. When you do these 2 things consistently you’ll find yourself losing more fat, happier and with much more success than before.
To your success,
