Easy Weight Loss with Antonio Banderas

What a Day for a Daydream by Janice Taylor, Health & Happiness Beliefnet Blogger.
While waiting for the 6 train on 116th and Lexington Avenue (not the most beautiful subway stop in Manhattan), I took the opportunity to mentally review my to do list: pick up low-fat milk, watermelon, multiple bags of salad, one-calorie per spray dressing; drop off dry cleaning; call my cousin; sign up for meringue lessons …
The thought of learning how to dance the merengue – gliding gracefully and sensually across the dance floor set my mind off and well – dancing . . . into a beautiful daydream. I mentally drifted onto the dance floor. I could hear the music, and I could feel my hips swaying. I was energized, happy and feeling alive.
Just as Antonio Bandaras was reaching his hand out to mine, our fingers just about to touch, the train screeched into the station. I didn’t get to dance with Antonio, but I realized that daydreaming is a type of trance state.
Daydreaming is a fantasy that one has while awake – often spontaneous, as was my daydream. Some daydreams are about future scenarios, some replay past experiences, and many daydreams are connected to some type of emotional experience.
Einstein daydreamed his way to the Theory of Relativity. Proof positive that daydreaming both stimulates the mind, relaxes the body, and is a process that can help to set goals, manage conflict, boost productivity, increase creativity, achieve goals and relieve boredom. (Go, Einstein! Go.)
Be A Daydream Believer
Daydreams with intention are a form of self-hypnosis. You effectively release all conscious control in the moment, and simply allow yourself to go with the flow of your sixth sense.
Go for a mental ride, allowing your unconscious mind to pretend to imagine. You can easily allow your attention to be directed inward and reach a part of yourself that you cannot reach while conscious or while sleeping.
New Point of View: Daydreaming is as important to permanent fat removal as food and movement (a.k.a. exercise). Make it a part of your day.

    I am having trouble reading the last two blogs. For some reason the screen comes up with a dark blue background with light blue print that is impossible to read unless I highlight it. Is anyone else having trouble with the screen?

    Antonio Banderas? Go, Janice, go! (Just because you’re on a diet, it doesn’t mean you can’t look at the menu!)
