Setting an Anchor with NLP to Regain Weight Loss Motivation

NLP Anchoring Process to Regain Weight-Loss Motivation

Recently, a customer wrote to say, “I pondered going into the health sector when I was losing weight since I felt so wonderful about my activity and weight reduction. I’d like to reclaim that [experience]!”

“Getting that sensation back” may be easier than you think. That’s exactly the kind of circumstance in which you’d want to apply the NLP technique known as anchoring.

How to Set an Anchor

Begin by fantasizing about how you felt at the time. If you have the opportunity, jot down some notes. Then respond to these kinds of questions (feel free to ask any questions you like).

What was your overall impression? Is there any part of your body where you felt it very strongly? What type of sensation did you have? Are you looking for something strong, moderate, fluttery, or tingling? What? Make every effort to replicate the situation as it was for you at the time.

  • What position were you in when you sat or stood? What was your demeanor like?
  • What did other people say to you? Compliments? Encouragement?
  • Is there anything unpleasant that comes to mind? Make a note of it.
  • Do you have any recollection of what you saw? Were you at a certain location? Was the sky a certain hue, for example? As much information as you can, as vividly as possible.
  • Have you considered a career in medicine? What kind of employment are you looking for?

Write down every detail, and when you truly feel it, reach down and pressure your knee, exactly as you did back then.

That’s how you make an anchor. Then try again, using the same processes as before, asking yourself the same questions, and this time, squeezing your knee as hard as you can recall. It may appear ridiculous, but it actually works.

Stand up and shake it off to see whether it’s working. Think about the last movie you saw (think of anything else, just to get your mind clear). Get all of your ideas out of your head, then sit down and squeeze your knee until your mind is clear. Your mind will most likely return to positive emotions and memories of how you felt while you were getting in shape at the time.

That’s how “anchoring” is done.

Memories can help bring those sensations back to the forefront for you, and that’s exactly what you want. You’ll get inspired to do whatever it takes to generate those sentiments more and more, and perhaps even pursue that profession in the health area, once you have them, even if only a little.
