"Changing Thoughts....Changes Feelings...Changes Your Life!"
This statistic is alarming. Most of us at some point in our life have been on a mission to lose weight or become healthier in our choices so we have more energy, have a health scare or have some event where we want to look our best. The facts are 80% of people who lose at least 10% of their body weight gain the weight back if not more. What is the missing link in this? I believe most people do not consider the power of our thoughts keeping us stuck in destructive patterns with our health. This essential piece of the puzzle is important because it helps you understand why you are choosing the fast food instead of the fruits and veggies or sitting on the couch instead of exercising.
First, really think about it and ask yourself the most important health question: Why do you want to be healthy? Next, ask yourself: What happens once you achieve your why?

What is behavior modification?
Behavior modification is closely related to cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) in that it helps the person produce better outcomes in life. However, instead of focusing on negative thinking patterns or ideas, behavior modification focuses on how the conversations in your head leads us into feeling a certain way and then we DO certain action or behaviors. As long as those actions or behaviors are in alignment with what we want everything is great! If it is not then it sends us into destructive habits.
We have approximately 60,000 thoughts per day, and 80% of those thoughts are negative thoughts and 90% of our thoughts are the same thoughts everyday!! Yikes! Even if we could change 1% of those thoughts to be positive think of the impact we can make on our lives! By taking the time to understand your thoughts, words or conversations we can understand the HUGE impact they can have on our lives. We can't possibly think about all 60,000 thoughts...
Behavior modification is a word most people avoid or are not really sure what it means. Here is a simple definition: Behavior modification is getting consciously aware of the conversations in your head, especially the ones keeping you in destructive patterns, and making adjustments to these conversations so change is easy. The key is asking questions to allow you to see what is ACTUALLY happening when you make destructive decisions. These empowering questions help you take a closer look at the conversations we have in our head so we have understanding and motivation to embrace change. Usually we spend so much time focusing on the action or diet to temporarily guide us and skip the behavior modification step keeping us repeating the same destructive patterns and not ever making a lasting change.
