Have you ever wanted to change your life for the better? It should be a simple task: You identify an issue, develop a plan of action, and you implement your plan. Unfortunately, most of us know from experience that making changes is often much harder than we expected. We run into roadblocks, we get distracted, run off track, and eventually forget our plans altogether. Finally, we settle back into those old comfortable grooves and behavior patterns. If you are ready to make positive lifestyle changes that stick, hypnosis can help you stay the course. With UpNow’s hypnosis app, you can learn to stay focused, motivated, and confident as you make your envisioned changes a reality.
The Power of our Habits
Your day-to-day behavior might not be as much under your control as you think. In fact, many of the things we do every day are products of our habits. From the moment you wake up until the time you go to bed, your brain uses a kind of autopilot, propelling you from one task to the next. Habits are not mindless behaviors: They play important roles in our lives by helping our brains conserve energy. When we wash our hands or brush our teeth, we do not waste precious energy thinking through each step. We simply do the task. The same goes for pouring a drink, flipping a light switch, or getting to and from work or shopping.
Habits can simplify our routines and our lives, but they can also make our lives harder sometimes. This happens when we get into patterns of behavior that are unproductive nor not healthy. Perhaps you struggle to make time for exercise or you smoke or overeat. When your bad habits are deeply entrenched, you cannot overcome them with willpower any more than you can easily change the way you brush your teeth with willpower. Your habits, both good and bad, are embedded in your subconscious, and you cannot merely “think” your way out of them.
Changing your behavior starts instead with changing your mind, and changing your mind starts with the subconscious. The unconscious mind is where your thought processes reside. The subconscious or unconscious mind underlies your emotions, beliefs, imagination, and habits. The conscious mind, on the other hand, is home to your logic and conscious thoughts, but it cannot tap into your subconscious.
Self-hypnosis empowers you to access the subconscious mind. Once there, you can gently guide it as you change the way it sees and approaches various issues.
Self-hypnosis and the Subconscious Mind
Hypnosis is a natural state of mind, much like daydreaming. If you have ever been moved to tears by an emotional scene in a movie or found yourself losing track of time while reading, then you have experienced a state similar to hypnosis. Hypnotherapy harnesses this highly focused, deeply relaxed experience and combines it with suggestions. These suggestions are designed to be more easily absorbed by your subconscious, which becomes more accessible.
You can use hypnotherapy to tackle virtually any issue with which you are struggling, including:
It is not a magic pill, but you will begin to see subtle changes in your viewpoint and your mindset. Your thinking patterns will transform, and the habits that have been plaguing you for so long will start to fall away as you replace them with healthier and more positive new habits.
