How to Work Self-Hypnosis into your Daily Routine

How to Work Self-Hypnosis into your Daily Routine

One of the main problems with self-hypnosis, is that more often than not people forget to do it. They might practice once or twice, but everyday life gets in the way and so hypnotherapy goes by the wayside. If you are able to work self-hypnosis into your daily routine though, it offers so many benefits. Including the reduction of stress and helping you to get better sleep.

If you’re serious about hypnotherapy and you feel that making self-hypnosis a daily habit could help you, then there are a few simple ways to work it into your daily routine. You have to want to do it and it may not always be easy, but it can be done!

Recognise when you have natural down time –

First of all, you need to sit down and think about the structure of your average day. Naturally your day will have busy periods and times when you get to rest for a few minutes. The key is to pick out the times when you regularly have a little down time, that way you’re not trying to squeeze hypnotherapy into an already busy period. Ideally this will be a time when you’re by yourself and the chance of distraction is slim to none.

 

Practice makes perfect –

One you’ve managed to work out the perfect time to practice regularly, you need to do just that. As a self-hypnosis beginner you’ll probably find that it takes time for you to fully relax, in order to feel the benefit. You have to remember that the more you practice, the quicker and easier it will become. I know people who can reach a hypnotic state in a very short space of time, but that’s only because they’ve made the time to practice!

 

Don’t make it feel like a chore –

Once something starts to feel like a chore, we’re less likely to give it the attention it deserves. That’s why you need to approach self-hypnosis in a relaxed manner. Don’t beat yourself up if it doesn’t work the first time. Don’t panic if you get distracted. Just take each session as it comes and enjoy it. It’s also a good idea to change your routine slightly at regular intervals, that way you won’t get bored with repeating the same old session.

 

Remember, it take 66 days to form a habit –

At the beginning of your hypnotherapy journey, it’s essential that you remember that practicing everyday won’t come naturally to you. As with all good things, it takes time and effort to achieve. Research suggests that it takes 66 days to form a habit, so if you really want to work self-hypnosis into your daily routine you should give it the time it deserves to see if it’s going to be a benefit to you.

Four Benefits of Hypnotherapy

Four Benefits of Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy has been used for many, many years. People use it for relaxation, personal therapy and even during childbirth. It’s often used to help people stop smoking and to lose weight, in fact it’s uses are almost endless. If hypnotherapy is something that you’re willing to consider adding to your life, you need to know just how beneficial it can be.

Here are four benefits of adding hypnotherapy to your life;

Helps to reduce stress –

These days we all live incredibly busy lives. Our days are often none-stop, so taking time out for ourselves gets put on the back-burner. This lack of rest, mentally and physically, means that many of use are carrying around far more stress than is healthy. Making time to fit just ten minutes of hypnotherapy into your day can help to reduce stress immensely. It gives you the time to completely relax your body and your mind, allowing you to compartmentalise your life and thus deal with daily issues more effectively.

Help change negative thought patterns –

Hypnotherapy is often used in personal therapy, as a tool to alter negative thought patterns. Finding yourself stuck in a rut with negative thoughts is very common and nothing to be ashamed of. However, recognising it as a problem and seeking help isn’t always at the top of everyone’s priority list. Through the use of self-hypnosis or by enlisting the help of a hypnotherapist, negative thought patterns can be challenged and changed. Hypnotherapy is a great way to break the cycle, which can improve your mood and your outlook on life immeasurably.

Helps with pain management –

I touched on people using hypnotherapy during childbirth earlier on in this post. Hypno-birthing is becoming more common and is proven to help some women during labour. Similarly, hypnotherapy can be used to control the pain experienced by individuals with chronic illnesses.

Helps to improve sleep –

As hypnotherapy is based on relaxation, it’s inevitable that it can help improve sleep patterns in those that practice regularly. If you get into the habit of using a little self-hypnosis before bed, you’ll find yourself becoming more relaxed and in better control of your thoughts. So many of us find that once we hit the hay, our minds run away with irrelevant thoughts, that often keep us awake until the small hours. Using hypnotherapy can stop this process in its tracks, ensuring that you get the rest that you need.

Hypnotherapy isn’t always given the credit that it deserves. It’s not some ‘airy-fairy’ treatment process, for those who wish to avoid medical treatment. It’s also not a process whereby you’ll be made to parade around unwillingly. It’s relaxation therapy, that offers many benefits to those that use it.
