It might be surprising for many people out there but there are ways you can lose weight because of spirituality.
I’ve always believed in the quote “If you can believe, you can achieve”.
Belief and determination are the main things that drive a person to succeed and it is very important for losing weight as well.
If you do not “believe” you can do it, neither can you “achieve it”.
Also, spiritual ways of losing weight are not “quick fixes” because they do take their time and require you to relax.
The most important thing that you need to understand is that spirituality is not the same as religion.
In spirituality we ask ourselves the purpose of living, how do we feel connected and things of that sort.
In religion, the emphasis is on what type of things are right and wrong, what type of life should one follow in respect to religion etc.
With that being said, let’s finally get on with it….
The top 5 ways you can lose weight spiritually are:-
Meditation is indeed one of the greatest ways to lose weight spiritually.
It helps you clear your mind and think logically.
By practicing meditation, you tend to become more determined and conscious about your body which believe it or not, plays a great role in helping you lose weight.
When you practice meditation, your body’s digestion improves and reduces your tendency to eat foods that are rich in calories.
Stress hormonal imbalances are also the main reasons for weight gain and hormonal imbalances.
By practicing meditation, you bring back the harmony in your body which helps in a great way to lose weight and even if you are underweight, it can help you put on weight.
Yoga is a very well know spiritual healer and many people have lost weight because of this.
The real reason why yoga can help you with weight loss is because it tends to increase insulin sensitivity which in a way signals your body to burn food for more energy rather than just collect the fat and as a result, you lose weight.
There is great yoga poses you can try out for weight loss and check out the video below for some yoga poses you can perform for reducing belly fat.
Yoga besides from its weight loss benefits also helps you to improve your respiratory functions and also gives you a great amount of energy.
People do feel refreshed after performing yoga.
3) EMOTIONAL CONTROL:-
Food is a comfort for many people out there and they often find eating as the best way to cope with their emotional feelings.
You may not even know you are an emotional eater, unconsciously you may eat when you are at your worst.
Some of you may even eat just because they are bored!
Well, this is something you need to overcome if you want to lose weight (if you are an emotional eater) because this makes all your weight loss efforts go in vain.
To overcome this, you need to be emotionally in control and deal with stress the healthy way.
People who are emotional eaters usually lack emotional support, so they should talk about their feelings and feel better with their friends and family.
Also, don’t stop yourself from eating.
Just eat foods that are healthier and better for staying fit.
If you often go through the problem of feeling bored and eating, you could also try to distract yourself with some work and it is advisable to seek professional help when everything you’ve tried to overcome this on your own doesn’t seem to work.
4) ACCEPT YOURSELF.
Many people have problems with the way they look and it is indeed very difficult for them to accept themselves mainly because they are overweight.
People think lowly of themselves and this can be totally dealt with if you learn to accept yourself.
Do not think negatively of your body in any way and it is okay if you put on a few pounds even after the work you put in.
If you work consistently, you will reap the benefits.
So, just believe in yourself and be determined.
Love yourself for who you are and accept the fact that it’s okay to be this weight and you will achieve the results you want in the future.
Everything will start changing from there onwards.
5) GET SOME INSPIRATION.
It is great to get some inspiration for losing weight.
If you have a fitness trainer, you could learn and get inspired from their story or read about the success stories of other people who were in your shoes once in their life and now are in great shape and are happy with their weight!
This has indeed helped many people and helped me too when I was on my journey to losing weight.
When you get inspiration, it also shows you that the results you hope and working for can and will be achieved, it just depends on your determination and the changes in your food habits and having an exercise routine.
HAVE A GREAT DAY! 😀
