Your mind is made up of two components; the conscious and subconscious (or unconscious) mind. The conscious mind controls everything that you are aware of and is often likened to the tip of the iceberg as it is actually only a fraction of the mind. The subconscious is the largest part of the mind and like an iceberg is hidden from view. Your subconscious stores all your memories, sights, sounds, smells and beliefs. Everything you experience is stored away and programs you in the way you think about and respond to it.
If you were told as a young child that you are, ‘Thick’, then if it was repeated your subconscious will have accepted that as true and you will believe that you are thick. Your subconscious accepts things as truths unless it is told otherwise. Habits once formed become ingrained as they are programmed into your subconscious and will happen automatically once they are triggered. It is the same for phobias or fears.
Mental programming allows the connections between triggers and events to be changed in your subconscious. You can change the perception of traumatic events from the past to see them with adult attitudes and wisdom and thereby allow the impact of the memory to be lessened.
Bad habits such as nail biting and smoking can be removed through a variety of mental programming methods. Self-hypnosis through the use of audio recordings can be used. Alternatively, coaching, NLP or hypnotherapy can provide greater support and resources.
Phobias and fears can be confronted and removed. You can either go it alone using self-help methods or choose the support of a hypnotherapist, NLP practitioner, Cognitive Behavioral Therapist or a coach. Using the skills of a professional can greatly enhance the effectiveness of the treatment as they will be able to identify the methods best suited to your personality and goals.
Weight loss is another area that benefits from mental programming. Being committed to changing your eating habits and losing weight is as important as following a diet. By imagining yourself living as a slimmer fitter person you are increasing the likelihood of achieving your goal.
Other areas that changing your mind can help are increasing self-confidence, removing limiting beliefs and achieving goals.
Mental programming is a very powerful way to change your mind and your life for the better. As Norman Vincent Peale said,
“Change your thoughts, and you can change your world.”
You have narrowed down that you need to workout at home. You have even narrowed down the types of workouts you need to handle. What you landed in is at-home circuit training. The problem is, you may not know how to start and how to make the plan work for you. Here are a few at-home circuit training tips that you should keep in mind. These can help you get started, stay on track, and make this type of workout work for you.
Create a No Equipment Circuit
The first tip would be to start your at-home circuit training with no equipment. This may sound odd, but using your own body weight and your own body can help you greatly. It will allow you to get used to the circuits, memorize what works best for you, and then add the equipment you need. You will also avoid using equipment that you don’t need or making purchases for workout equipment that you don’t need.
Start off with Lower Intensity
Start off with a lower intensity workout plan. For example, instead of starting out with high weights and dozens of reps, work yourself up to it. Start off with doing a few rounds and under twenty reps each. This will let you build up on it and get your body used to what you are doing. It will also let you gauge what time frame works best for you. For example, you may find that working out at a certain level and circuit means you can fit in a workout in under 30 minute while just a few more reps may jump your workout to almost an hour. You also are giving yourself room to improve instead of maxing out when you start.
Keep to Shorter Workouts
Try to keep your workouts shorter at first. This goes hand in hand with lower intensity to start off with. Just keep your workouts to around 30 minutes. This allows you to get your circuit in and see what needs improvement. It also will give you an idea of what you can do in a short amount of time if you need to change it up later and go for longer or shorter workouts due to work changes or lifestyle changes.
By keeping these tips in mind and working each one into your at-home circuit training, you can come up with the best possible workout solution for your needs. You will also find it easier to increase the intensity of your workouts and adjust them as needed.
