Quit Smoking Help

 FOR THOSE TRYING TO #QuitSmokingToday. Written notes from my recording and reminders of the changes to your body the second you stop. You can #stopsmoking now and I hope below inspires you to do so or forward it to someone thinking about stopping.Stop SmokingStop Smoking MG Hypnosis

Smoking is an illusion…cravings are an illusion. We create the story of why we smoke in our heads. The first reason you started smoking is not the same reason for why you continued to smoke. Cigarettes DO NOT help us relax. Cigarettes do not give us confidence. Cigarettes do not go great with a coffee or drink…Cigarettes do make us ill, smell terrible, shorten our life span, and hurt others we care about through second hand smoke…you know as well as I do, smoking is not a smart thing to do.
When you actually take the first puff out of a cigarette and think, “Ah, that is good”, before coughing, you should realize it is actually the rush of fresh air that came in with the nicotine that make you think “that is good”. Try it now…take a deep breath and just notice how nice it does feel to take a good clean breath of fresh air. Better without the smoke actually.
The excuses, or fears, we create in our heads are also illusions. We won’t gain weight, be stressed out, or have terrible withdraw symptoms, as long as you don’t focus your attention on them. Instead you will focus on eating better and healthier foods, drinking more water and taking more exercise. IT IS EASY if you think it will be and are 100% committed to stop smoking. The success is based on your commitment to yourself to stop smoking for the rest of your life.
Some reminders as to what you will gain and the changes to your body when you stop smoking to encourage you…
Within 20 minutes of your last cigarette
- blood pressure drops to normal
- pulse rate drops to normal
- body temperature of hands and feet return to normal
8 hours after your last cigarette
- carbon monoxide levels in the blood drops to normal
- oxygen level in blood increases to normal – 8 hours – WOW
- you smell better and can smell better
24 hours
- chances of a heart attack decreases
48 hours
- Never endings start regrowing
- Your ability to smell and taste things is enhanced
72 hours
- Bronchial tubes relax making breathing easier.
- Your lung capacity increases – how amazing is that?
2 weeks to 3 months
- Circulation improves
- Walking becomes easier as you have more breath literally
- Lung function increases by up to 30%
1 to 9 months
- Coughing, sinus congestion, fatigue shortness of breath decrease
- Lung cilia re-grow increasing the ability to handle mucus and clean lungs
- Body’s overall energy increases
5 years
- Lung cancer death rate for average smoker almost halves
10 years
- Lung cancer death rate down to almost that of a non-smoker
- Pre-cancerous cells are replaced
- Other cancer risks decrease
And all these benefits are lost when you start smoking again so after this recording you will never have ONE puff again. Here’s to good health.

Have some fun in 2021! Happy New Year

 2021 - HAVE SOME FUN!!! Really, we need more fun this year!

Reinvent yourself. Try a new hairstyle or colour. Update your wardrobe with something new and bright and fun!

Learn a new skill or develop a hobby.

Join a new group - I recommend #InterNations. Join or start a book club or games club, or walking group (spend time organising it for when you can meet face-to-face).

I'm creating a bucket list of things to do this year and projects of things I want to accomplish. YES - todo lists are fun for some people - like myself. SEEeee...I even have my colourful calendar, marker pens, quotes started, and saving money pouch to spend on my rewards, all set to go.

A change is like a breath of fresh air - makes you feel good. Have some fun in 21!

Brilliant Company to work with - make sure you love your work - IMPORTANT MESSAGE

Bodies Under Construction (the clinic I work from) is in the festive mood AND our amazing director, Leslie Abrahams and his wife Teryl, sent me a naughty box of Bad Brownies (and I've even been good) 😂😃 THANK YOU!!! You have made my day brighter, happier and joyful.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE - loving your work and who you work for is so important to your mental and physical wellbeing. Remember, you spend a lot of your day doing your job and if it's not right for you anymore - leave. If you hate your workplace but like your work - find a new company. If your chosen career isn't what you thought it was going to be like - start retraining (it doesn't matter how much time or money you have spent on it - ask yourself if you really want to be investing any more of your lifetime doing it). A quality life is more important in the long run.  

Do not be afraid of change. Do not be afraid of mistakes. Both are wonderful if they help lead you to your happiness and a fulfilling life. You, and those who are close to you, will benefit.

If you are having a down day - play this loud and start moving. Dance people - dance! (But sorry you have to watch the 5 second video before it starts - don't know how to avoid that - worth the wait) LOL
