Weight Release Mini-series. Episode 2. Tame your craving. Part 1

In this video, I will show you a rapid method of dealing with a craving effectively. It’s super easy and only takes a few minutes.

Cravings can be quite uncomfortable physically. The curious thing is that they’re rarely related to hunger! Most often, cravings are triggered when we have a certain emotion that we don’t want to have. It may be boredom, anxiety, sadness, or any other type of unwanted emotion. So, cravings have a very useful positive intention. They help us distract ourselves, change our feelings. In short, they allow us to break our current state! However, we all know that it’s not the most useful strategy. It is a very short-lived solution that generates a long-term problem!

So, is it possible to change our state doing something else? I bet it is!

To feel the benefit of this method, I’d like to ask you to create a craving right now artificially. It’s easy: just imagine yourself having your favorite treat right now. How it looks, how it feels, how it tastes…Then, grade your craving on a scale from 1 to 10, where 1 is “I don’t care” and 10 is “I must absolutely have it right now or I’ll die”. Note the number you get!

Now, here is the technique.

First, take a comfortable position and start noticing things around you. Notice three things you can see, 3 things you can hear and 3 things you can feel. Do it at a comfortable pace without rushing. State out loud or with your inner voice what you observe: “I can see my notebook… I can see my room… I can see my cat. I can hear some traffic outside. I can hear my clock ticking. I can hear my voice. I can feel my feet on the floor. I can feel my hair touching my skin. I can feel the tongue inside my mouth”.

Second, do a pleasant physical movement that you feel like doing. It can be as subtle as moving your head or your hands in a gentle way.

Or as simple as standing up and going to the other room. Or just swinging your arms like this.

Or you can turn on your favorite music and do some dance movements. If you feel adventurous, you can even do a few sit-ups or jump a few times. The choice is limitless.

There is only one condition: you need to continue physically moving for no less than two minutes. You can switch from one movement to another any time you want, just keep going for 2 minutes. At the end, you can add saying out loud or in your mind: I’m in control! Or I feel great! Something along that line.

Please pause the video now and do it!

Now, if you really did the two steps, please try to find your initial craving and discover that it has changes or disappeared all together. If you still have a little bit of craving, grade it and just repeat the technique one more time.

All in all, the whole technique takes only 3 minutes to complete.

The first part of the technique is very effective to help your mind return to the present moment. You temporarily disconnect from any concerns you might have.

The second part helps quickly change your physiological state. You will easily notice that after only 2 minutes, your breathing has changed, which means your physiology has changed. And once this shift is in place, thoughts and emotions will follow suit.

Now, anytime you feel the craving building up, do this 3-minute technique! You’ll be amazed by its simplicity and effectiveness.
