Break Bad Habits

If you want to let go of unwanted habits and behaviors (and stop the emotional triggers that make you do that stuff), read this:

It’s time to stop living with a problem and start enjoying a more satisfying life.

The old, out-of-date thinking used to be to label that stuff as “self-sabotage.”

Here’s the groundbreaking truth: behind every action is a positive intent. Even though you consciously know that old habit or behavior has overstayed it’s welcome, part of your mind is holding onto it out of perceptions of safety and security.

Through hypnosis, your mind can generate new behaviors that actually support you and benefit your highest emotional needs.

As soon as you walk in the door, we will get to work immediately to identify that issue, reverse it, and clear it from your system in such a way that you will immediately be able to validate the changes. Rather than a tired, old approach of “wait-and-see” or “hope-it-works!”, I believe in using rapid neurological change strategies so we both know the results are in motion.

There’s nothing wrong with you. Anyone who could have lived through all your life experiences as you have up until now would likely be feeling and behaving the same way as you. Think of it like the “virus” on a computer. Through hypnosis, you can remove that unwanted “programming” and install more satisfying habits and behaviors.

Reduce your stress levels.

There’s a common acronym that will power is ineffective when your mind or body HALTS – when you’re hungry, angry, lonely, tired, or stressed.  Indeed, all of these feelings are stressful ones. 

If there are bad habits you’re working to eliminate, consider setting yourself up for success.  Eating healthy meals and getting a full night’s rest are the easiest things you can put into place for yourself.

If you are going through a challenging ongoing situation, consider some steps to give yourself intentional moments of relaxation.  Take a long bath, get a massage, or even learn self-hypnosis.

Live as if the goal is already accomplished.  

I worked with a woman who wanted to quit biting her nails.  She initially had some challenges in releasing the habit as she was still ashamed of her chewed-up fingers.  At work, she’d do everything she could do to hide her hands, and having recently become engaged, she’d show off her new ring with a closed fist.  As she wanted to eliminate the habit to have more pride in her hands, she began painting her fingernails as if they were already healthy and grown out.  This simple action made the benefits of the change more enticing and natural.

Would you exercise more if you quit smoking?  Would you deposit more money into savings if you cut out impulsive online shopping?  Consider taking the next step forward into your change to pace yourself into your own success.

As a final thought, habits don’t have to be a permanent problem. Just the awareness that you’d like to change something is the first step forward.
