Simulate Your Future Rather Than Rehash Your Past
by Henry Moors

Your mind can be a powerful simulator of the future or a simple recorder of the past.

Why would you use your mind to play your past on autorepeat, when you can use it to plan your future in vivid detail? Replaying your past can be extremely depressing.

Why Mindful Eating Didn't Help You Stop Binge Eating
by Helen Wong

You’ve probably heard of mindful eating...
But if your goal is to stop binge eating and to lose weight, it likely won’t do very much for you!

Think about it this way:

-Eating likely only takes up 1-2 hours of your day

-We are awake for roughly 16 hours (if you’re one of the lucky ones that get a full 8-hour sleep)

-So the time you spend eating is like less than an eighth of your total time awake

In the mini training in the link below, I explain why I believe living mindfully is more important and more useful than just mindful eating.

Nighttime Eating Challenge
by Helen Wong

????"I'll lose control and binge if I give myself the permission to eat all foods!"?????
That's one of the most common reasons people have resistance towards stopping dieting, even though they now know how dieting causes the stress response and the stress response causes binge eating/overeating.

by Helen Wong

This week in the free Stop Binge Eating Community Facebook group, we're doing an Earthing Challenge--why is this even relevant to stopping binge eating?
The "Earthing challenge"is not a random challenge I've put out.

Why Dieting doesn't work--Dieting is stress on the body
by Helen Wong

“I don’t get it. Diet companies show such amazing before and after photos—and yet I’m here stressing over everything I put in my mouth and the scale isn’t even moving. AND even if I look at a cookie, I won’t even be able to zip up my jeans anymore”

Am I right or am I right?

-Around 60% of dieters regain their weight back within 6 months of finishing a diet
-More than 83% regain their weight back or more within 2 years
-More than 95% of dieters regain all their weight or more within 5 years
-Over 50% of dieter weigh 11 lbs or more compared to their starting weight
-People who diet are 8 times more likely to develop an eating disorder

So why do diet companies have such “amazing” results to show?
-Because most of them only do follow-ups of up to 3 months!
-Many companies use self-reported weight stats by using a weight tracker site, by phone or email (people who've gained aren't really gonna report that, are they?)
-The follow-up rates are low—80% of companies have follow-up rates of lower than 50%.

Coach Helga Dreiser

by Helga Dreiser

How many of us have been told that our happiness depends on us and not on others?

That we are the ones, who have control over our thoughts, over the way we feel or react?

That not the situations, people or events make us feel in a certain way, but how we relate to them?

What if we change our perception and vision, our whole reality changes?

That we have the power to build our life as we wish?

That we don’t have to accept anything that takes away from us the joy of living, that we don’t have to make sacrifices and compromises because we are ashamed to say “no”?

That it’s okay to bring up issues that bother us and confront others because “politeness” or shame aren’t more important than honesty.

How did you keep yourself entertain in lock down?
by Rowan Armstrong

What activities did you find to take part in while in your home during the lock down. What did you enjoy. The Zoom boom showed us that people need to reach out and communicate with each other. A friends of mine started to chat with some of their friends that had moved couple of years ago to Australia.

The coronavirus pandemic is pushing the World into a mental health crisis. Anxiety and depression are rising.
by Helga Dreiser

A few months into the coronavirus pandemic, the world is on the verge of another health crisis, with daily doses of death, isolation and fear generating widespread psychological trauma.

We are experiencing a psychological crisis that combines the following:
- the fear of the unknown and the uncertainty – what causes us panic is not so much the fear of illness itself, but the fact that we don’t know how things will be, how they will evolve in the short, medium and long term on all levels, the fact that it’s difficult for us to tolerate uncertainty.

Coach Maria Lunt

by Maria Lunt

In order to earn trust as a business professional, confidence is key. Research shows that confidence has a stronger link to success than competence. Self-confidence is a belief that you can accomplish what you set out to do in your current role with your skills, experience and creative problem solving.

The art of influence during presentations
by Maria Lunt

In order to influence your audience, your presentation needs to represent a clear story about your product/service or proposal. When information is presented into a story, our brains understand the information associated with the feelings we had while listening to the story.

Speak your truth even when it's scary
by Jon prince

Your opinion matters.

The more you speak up and tell others what you are thinking and how you are feeling the more you grow in confidence.

The key lies in being able to handle other peoples reactions.

How to overcome imposter syndrome
by Joanna Lott

Do you feel plagued by feelings of self-doubt? Have the feeling you don’t know what you’re doing despite having done it before? Feel like everyone else is better than you? Fear someone will find out you aren’t who they think you are and expose you as a fraud? Think you should know things easier or faster than you do?

If you’re nodding then you may have imposter syndrome.

Coach Grace Anderson

Your mind is the machine that is in your body that does a lot of thinking and organises your life for you. So, although your mind is not visible, it is, in fact connected to your brain and creates thoughts in your head, which eventually become the actions you take.
