Re: Year's New Solutions!

If your New Year's Resolutions have got in a bit of a jumble or you have fallen by the wayside, take heart and read on!

Each new year 40% - 45% of adults make one or more resolutions or goals for themselves. But research has shown that by mid-January, 30% of “resolutioners” have scaled back their resolution efforts; by June, most have given up their resolutions altogether.

Surprisingly 50% of people making resolutions feel confident about the success of their NYRs, yet only 10% actually achieved them. So why is this?

The reason why most people fail to keep resolutions is that for the majority of time they don’t think about them ... and this is natural. The behaviours we want change are unwanted habits and these are controlled by the sub-conscious mind.

Andy Cox, Clinical Hypnotherapist at Assured Effects in Poole, explains “It is very difficult to break habits because when we have performed a behaviour for several years we seemingly act entirely automatically and can have a cigarette or chocolate bar in our hands without even consciously thinking about.  People are too hard on themselves when they lapse and think they need to go back to square one – this is not true. They just need a new approach”

Hypnotherapy can change our sub-conscious beliefs and habits and get rid of our unwanted habits for good.

Insomnia can damage relationships - BBC Health

The BBC reported today that "Lack of sleep needs to be treated as a major health issue, according to a report published by the Mental Health Foundation.
The Great British Sleep Report suggests a link between insomnia and poor relationships, low energy levels and an inability to concentrate.
Poor sleep has already been linked to depression, immune deficiency and heart disease.
The report calls for GPs to have more training to recognise the symptoms.
The number of adults suffering from insomnia in the UK has previously been estimated at around 30%."

Having the lights on before bedtime could result in a worse night's sleep report BBC

The BBC reported today that "Having the lights on before bedtime could result in a worse night's sleep, according to a study to be published in the Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism.
The research shows that the body produces less of the sleep hormone melatonin when exposed to light.
Sleep patterns have been linked to some types of cancer, blood pressure and diabetes.
The US researchers also found lower melatonin levels in shift workers.
Lifestyles may have moved on from a day/night rhythm, but it seems the human body has not.
The pineal gland produces melatonin through the night and starts when darkness falls.
Researchers have shown that switching on lights in the home switches off the hormone's production"

"A fat tummy shrivels your brain" - report the New Scientist

The New Scientist reported today that "HAVING a larger waistline may shrink your brain.
Obesity is linked to an increased risk of type 2 diabetes, which is known to be associated with cognitive impairment. So Antonio Convit at the New York University School of Medicine wanted to see what impact obesity had on the physical structure of the brain. He used magnetic resonance imaging to compare the brains of 44 obese individuals with those of 19 lean people of similar age and background.
He found that obese individuals had more water in the amygdala - a part of the brain involved in eating behaviour. He also saw smaller orbitofrontal cortices in obese individuals, important for impulse control and also involved in feeding behaviour (Brain Research, in press). "It could mean that there are less neurons, or that those neurons are shrunken," says Convit.
Eric Stice at Oregon Research Institute, Eugene, thinks that the findings strengthen the "slippery slope" theory of obesity. "If you overeat, it appears to result in neural changes that increase the risk for future overeating," he says. Obesity is associated with a constant, low-level inflammation, which Convit thinks explains the change in brain size."

"Obesity linked to money insecurity in affluent nations" - report BBC

The BBC reported today that - "People in wealthy countries with "free market" economies are more likely to become obese, an Oxford University study says.
Money stresses in countries like the UK and US could explain their higher obesity levels, compared with countries such as Norway and Sweden.
The study, in Economic and Human Biology, compared obesity in 11 affluent countries from 1994 to 2004.
The researchers said the study showed obesity had "social causes".
Researchers set out to discover why Americans and Britons are heavier than Norwegians and Swedes.
Taking into account research into animal behaviour which shows that animals increase their food intake when faced with uncertainty, the Oxford researchers believed that stress could be a factor in causing people to overeat."
