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.
