    Creating Awareness of Overeating Consequences

    food People may think about the long-term effects of overeating such as weight gain or health consequences, but this awareness often has little impact because it is too far into the future. This audio is about helping to create awareness of more immediate consequences when you are making decisions about what to eat. The more you practice this exercise to imprint the memory of the consequences in your brain, the more it helps to make better choices.
    About 11 minutes.

    Thinking Your Way to a Healthy Weight

    This audio teaches you about how to think about your body and weight in a different way. Instead of thinking of weight loss in perfectionistic terms that lead to a cycle of dieting and failure, you can learn to think about caring for your body and setting manageable healthy goals. The audio is meant to be listened to repeatedly so that the thinking style can become more automatic. About 13 minutes. Also, read article: Thinking Your Way to a Healthy Weight.

    Hot Air Balloon Motivation

    Although this audio uses imagery for relaxation and can be used just for the calming experience, the focus on the audio is encouragement and motivation. Once you achieve a state of relaxation, listening to the motivational statements can increase your self-confidence and belief in your ability to achieve your goals. This audio is meant to be listened to repeatedly to help increase your positive self-talk regarding achieving your goals.

    This may be used while sitting or lying down in a quiet, comfortable place.  Just close your eyes and listen without trying to force yourself to relax.  If your mind wanders, gently bring yourself back to focus on the words.

    This exercise is best the more fully relaxed you are.  If you are unable to relax completely, listen to the relaxation exercises such as the meadow or mountain cabin until you are more skilled with relaxation.

    Do not use while operating a car!

    Risk and Planning for Success

    This audio discusses obstacles to success. In particular, it examines ways of thinking about risk that can interfere with success and points out the importance of planning to create a calculated risk that is more likely to lead to success. About 8 minutes.

    As with all the cognitive assistance audios, the more you listen to this audio, the more it creates a pathway in your brain related to success rather than focused on negativity. This audio can assist with a variety of goals whether athletic performance, weight loss, or career focus.
