“What the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve,” Napolean Hill (motivational author).

Happy New Year everyone – So, how are you all doing with your New Year’s resolutions? If you’ve still not had any chocolate, fags or booze you’re doing very well and are a rare breed. Many resolutions are made because —it’s what we “do” every year at this time. And for the majority, the custom of breaking a resolution is as strong a part of the tradition as making it.

In their hearts, most people expect to not achieve their New Year Goal and The main reason is

They Expect to Fail

An old friend of mine used to make a resolution every new year to stop smoking.  Sometimes she would stop for 2 days, other years a couple of weeks but it never lasted. Now, being a hypnotherapist,  the reason is obvious to me.

She always said something like this: “I’m going to stop smoking, I hope” or “I’m going to try to give up smoking” or ”I’m going to stop smoking—at least for a while.”

Notice how she built failure into every one of those resolutions. Frankly, resolutions are the closest thing to hypnotic suggestions. Build in failure and you’ve practically hypnotised yourself to fail.
So you see, people usually make and break resolutions! This is because they rely on their will power to help them achieve their goal. Unfortunately will power resides in the conscious mind which is limited.
Another main reason for people making and breaking resolutions is that deep within,  they don’t believe in themselves. Years of negative input, negative feelings and negative self-talk like “I don’t think I’m good enough” or “I’m a failure” have been imprinted deeply in the subconscious mind. And since the subconscious is also lazy, it doesn’t easily accept positive affirmations just once a year. Feelings that reside in the subconscious were formed through repetitive experiences and through believing what we are told by our elders. So, merely making New Year resolutions each year hasn’t worked for most people.
Treatment
The only way to keep a resolution is to get the subconscious and the conscious in agreement.  If our conscious was the part that was in control, it would be easy to stop smoking/drinking/biting nails, however it’s the subconscious that is control and that is why we need to access it and the best way to do that is through hypnosis.
Hypnotherapy can often really help individuals suffering from fears and phobias.  Hypnosis can be used to communicate with the subconscious mind and re-evaluate thinking patterns and behaviour.

Santa's jelly belly or a red nose like Rudolph?

Santa’s jelly belly or a red nose like Rudolph?

Christmas is just around the corner.  I love Christmas – socialising with friends, fantastic food, a tipple or two, presents galore (hopefully!) and excited children.  It’s so easy to over indulge to then regret it the next day/week feeling out of control.
Wouldn’t you like to feel in control?  Stop after that second glass of champagne?  Say no to those fags.  Resist that 6th sausage roll?  Only have one profiterole?  Just one handful of nuts/crisps as opposed to the whole bowl?
With the party season starting, excitement builds, the corks are popped and self control can go out of the window.  Don’t wake up the next morning regretting dancing on the table in front of your boss or with a sore head and not being able to function properly and wasting the day.
(oops – think I may have revealed too much about myself!  Ho Ho Ho – Ok, so who is going to come and hypnotise me then?)
It’s all about moderation.  We all need to have fun and enjoy ourselves or life would be very dull.  Hypnosis can help you be in control of your eating and drinking habits.

Here’s a few tips:

  • For those of you who are going out ‘boozing’ and don’t want to end up with a bright red nose like Rudolph,  make sure you have a glass of water in between each alcoholic drink.  Just doing this will not only stop you drinking as much but also keep you hydrated so the hang over won’t be so bad.
  • Have a glass of water before you put anything to eat in your mouth.
  • Only eat when you are actually hungry for food and not hungry for love, excitement or to overcome boredom or stress because by the New Year you will be able ‘to shake your belly like a bowl full of jelly!’

Just because it is Christmas, it doesn’t mean you have to forget all your good habits.

With the help of hypnosis, you can enjoy yourself but still reap the rewards of losing weight, overcome any fears or phobias and beat any addictions in a positive way.
Book in your appointment now – don’t let alcohol, fags or food control you this Christmas.

I wish you a very merry Christmas…
