We live in a stressful society for a long time, and relationships with others, work, workplace, family and troubles between the opposite sex are all causes of stress, and the desire to "lose weight" will also cause stress if it is not satisfied. Some people are too eager to lose weight, which can lead to eating disorders such as overeating or refusal to eat. Many of the patients I treat have developed vomiting calluses due to chronic overeating and vomiting, and have put their hands in their mouths in order to spit out the food they eat, resulting in calluses on the backs of their hands from their teeth.
Of course, these examples are very extreme, but there are many people to reduce stress by overeating is a fact. This naturally results in gaining weight. Moreover, when you start to lose weight, "you want to eat but can not eat" has become a new pressure, in order to reduce this pressure, some people again into the vicious circle of overeating.
Weight loss in a mentally unstable situation is the main cause of eating disorders and weight loss failure. So, what should we do to reduce mental stress?
In this regard, the autonomic training method, which stabilizes the mind and body through relaxation and relaxation of the whole body, was formerly used to treat psychosomatic and psychiatric disorders, but has now become popular as a general health therapy. Yoga, tai chi, and qigong are all very effective.
In addition, means such as meditation and self-referral are also very effective. For example, imagine yourself thin, or a specific picture of "if I have a very handsome boyfriend, then I must go out with him on Sunday," and so on. The medical term for this is "free association", which is a method of self-control by portraying in your mind a specific aspect of yourself that is good.
As you may know, many athletes usually do "impression training". This training method is to repeatedly imagine their own success, such as "I want to break through the opponent's defense to score a goal", "I want to break through the super difficult skill moves in a row", etc., so that it is input into the brain, and finally play a positive role in the real scene when the same scene.
