Children are naturals at hypnosis so if you are concerned about the health of your kids, encourage them to use the power of their mind for weight loss and sports performance. Who knows, you just may be pleasantly surprised at the positive impact hypnosis can have on their academic performance as well!
Friends Influence How Active Kids Are
WebMD, May 28, 2012 — Kids who like to be active can influence others to do the same, or at least that’s what new research finds. Children in social groups that included others who were physically active were six times more likely to be physically active themselves in a study published today in the journal Pediatrics.
When researchers directly measured activity levels among children attending after-school programs in Nashville, Tenn., they found the activity level of their closest peers to be the strongest influence on the amount of time the children spent engaged in physical activity.
“This research suggests that if we consider friendship networks in our efforts to prevent childhood obesity, we are likely to see gains that we have not seen with other interventions.” “Children became either more active or more sedentary as they emulated the behaviors of those in their immediate network,” the researchers write.
Weight loss is a family affair. That means that parents need to buy and eat healthy foods with their children and need to be physically active with their children. Parents can also encourage their children to be physically active by encouraging sports and by limiting the amount of time spent with computer and video games.
Hypnosis for weight loss can help your family to choose healthy food, be more physically active and to lose weight. Sports hypnosis can help your children to improve their sports skills. Using self hypnosis, kids can improve test scores and overall GPA. Using hypnosis you and your children can find the joy in being active.
