Shift Your Thinking

See how a “growth” mindset can help you succeed.
“Our mindsets are not set in stone. According to Carol S. Dwell PHD, a professor of psychology at Stanford University and the author of Mindset: The New Psychology Of Success, we often switch from one point of view to another in our daily life, depending on the situation. When it comes to weight loss, being able to shift from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset can help.”
When you have a growth mindset you are more open to hide new experiences and chances to improve our self. In the opposite, if you have a fixed mindset you tend to have the idea of “it is what it is” and don’t allow for growth. “Criticism lodges in our minds as truth and setbacks may seem insurmountable.”  Having this mindset can hamper our weight loss efforts.
“Shifting to a growth mindset can unleash positive, powerful changes. You’ll see your weight loss journey as one if progress and learning. Having a growth mindset leads you to reflect on those slip-ups and learn from them.”
When you’re victorious on and off the scale, you pay yourself on the back-you did it. This helps to reinforce healthy actions and your belief in yourself.
