Curing The Negative Self-Image - Deepstash

Curing The Negative Self-Image

The cure to a negative self-image formed by your beliefs is to be aware of what you think, speak or do. If you start to recognize your behavioural patterns, your hunger cravings and just pause before a habitual activity is starting, you can get a grip on the underlying emotions that drive these beliefs and corresponding actions.

Awareness and body-connection become your starting point, and one can then learn to recognize, manage, accept, and allow emotions, with eyes wide open.

  • Our beliefs, the stories we keep telling ourselves daily, along with our constant thoughts and emotions drive a lot of choices we make.
  • These unconscious beliefs and thought patterns shape our reality.
  • Our past experiences and childhood traumas play a big role in the formation of our beliefs, making us self-sabotage our confidence. It can also provide us with a nagging feeling of being unsafe and careless.

The sensation of hunger

Hormones get released when we are hungry: NPY and AgRP from the hypothalamus, and ghrelin from the stomach.

Ghrelin levels tend to be higher in lean individuals and lower in people with obesity. It might be that high levels of insulin, needed to metabolize a high-carbohydrate diet, are inhibiting the production of ghrelin in people with obesity.

Intermittent fasting

A style of eating that divides each day into two simple windows: one where you may be eating and one where you don’t.

This eating pattern is popular for its effectiveness as a weight-loss strategy, its potential to reduce the risk of certain chronic diseases, and its ability to lower blood pressure and improve insulin sensitivity.
