Sometimes the best tips you get are when you're not listening. Only later do you realize what you've been told - if you're lucky! Why is this? It's all to do with the way we listen. If someone gives you a weight loss tip to remember and you're in another place then it will be completely wasted.
There are several different types of listening. The most common is half listening. We hear, but we don't listen. Detail passes over our heads and we allow our minds to wander and flit from one thing to another - effectively totally out of control.
There is listening to reply. This is what most of us do in conversation. We don't listen to what the other person is saying, we are thinking about our reply - which of course is better and more important! If you were to be asked what the person had been saying you would be at a bit of a loss. Is it little wonder why there is so much misunderstanding? Listening to reply is inefficient and counter-productive.
Listening to understand is what we should all be doing. All it takes is a little effort and concentration, that's all.
Next time someone gives you a weight loss tip, it might be a good idea to make sure that you are in the listening to understand mode.
Why don't you test this out? Here's a breakthrough weight loss tip for you to remember. Try telling it to someone in normal conversation and see if they remember what you said.
Here's the tip: The best way to lose weight is not to go on a diet because diets don't deliver permanent weight loss. The best way to lose weight is to make personal change. What does that mean? It means learning new habits, slim habits. If you repeat and practice a habit it becomes hotwired onto your brain. Do this with the skim habits and you will create the change you want. This will allow you to lose weight permanently and enjoy a slim, diet free life.
