Does it ever feel like your mind is literally working against you when you're dieting? That's probably because it is. Many of our choices about what, when and how to eat are subtly and overtly influenced by a host of factors every day - including work schedules, sleep patterns, travel time, exercise plans, available food options, their relative costs, advertising, our families and peer groups, along with many other influencers.
Our bodies are so stressed by the rigors of modern life we often switch our brains to autopilot without even noticing when faced with thousands of daily decisions. That's one reason why it's so hard to break habits and partly explains why we have to literally retrain our minds to achieve long-term dieting and health success.
Scientists have been interested in music's powerful effect on the brain for hundreds of years and new studies demonstrate that music and sound impact us more profoundly than we may even imagine. Groups like Prescription Audio, the developer of Sound Solutions for a Healthier Life, are at the forefront of this research. In fact, many people have been able to improve their diet results by simply listening to specific types of audio programming that better harness our inner powers to positively alter behavior. Now we know more about why some audio programs fly while others flop.
ReMind Weight Loss, one of Prescription Audio's most popular audio programs, reinforces behavioral change through sound science. A breakthrough technique, called vibrational sound therapy, has successfully driven behavior change in a number of areas, including sleep, smoking cessation and weight loss.
Here's why: Properly tuned audio sessions tap the creative resources of listeners' brains, while feeding powerful reminders to the subconscious. Daily use of the most advanced audio programming has been clinically proven to tone down the adrenal cortex, which is responsible for pumping harmful stress hormones through the body while introducing Theta brainwave entrainment and positive weight loss affirmations that change the way users think about themselves and their relationship with food and exercise.
The power of sound and music is well known, but we've only recently learned to harness it for weight loss and other specific goals.
