Part 6 of Don't Diet Post Series: Hypnosis and Meditation

Now before you scoff or say...whoa that's just too expensive, hear me out.  I have started using a self-hypnosis download (cost me $12.95) and meditation from a free site on the internet (http://www.homeoflife.com/page1/maina.html).  Since I started almost a week ago, I find myself more centered, relaxed and less motivated to eat the wrong foods.  Notice I didn't say to not eat...to NOT eat the WRONG foods. I find myself passing up the ice cream, cupcakes and candy with more ease.  Accordingly, I have to listen to the self-hypnosis for a week for better results and have only done so twice...so I still stop and look.  But I am finding it easier to feel uninterested in purchasing them.

Self-hypnosis ("autohypnosis") is a form of hypnosis which is self-induced, and normally makes use of self-suggestion ("autosuggestion"). Listening to pre-recorded audio or other media is often mistaken for self-hypnosis, but is just another form of hypnosis.

Meditation refers to any of a family of practices in which the practitioner trains his or her mind or self-induces a mode of consciousness in order to realize some benefit.[1][2][3]
Meditation is generally an internal, personal practice and done without any external involvement, except perhaps prayer beads to count prayers, though many practitioners of meditation may rely on external objects such as candle flames as points on which to focus their attention as an aid to the process. Meditation often involves invoking or cultivating a feeling or internal state, such as compassion, or attending to a specific focal point. The term can refer to the state itself, as well as to practices or techniques employed to cultivate the state.

If we are only as beautiful on the outside as we are on the inside, mental improvement is the best place to start.
