Why New Year Resolutions so Often Fail
We always get more of what we focus on so when you decide to quit smoking, lose weight, reduce stress and anxiety or change some other habit, you are focussing on what you want to get rid of…
So you get more of it… more cravings… more hunger and snacking… more stress and anxiety or even more debts if this is what you focus on. Your willpower alone can’t overcome your unconscious mind that is bringing you more of what you are focussing on.
You need to change your unconscious mind and this is done when you go into a state of very deep relaxation where you are able to quieten all the other negative chatter that goes on in your head.
Hypnosis and meditation are the ways to produce this state of deep relaxation where you quiet your mind and are able to make the changes you desire in your unconscious mind and even Hugh Jackman agrees this is an almost magical state of mind
“Meditation is all about the pursuit of nothingness. It’s like the ultimate rest. It’s better than the best sleep you’ve ever had. It’s a quieting of the mind. It sharpens everything, especially your appreciation of your surroundings. It keeps life fresh.” Hugh Jackman
The problem is that meditation takes a lot of skill and practice. However hypnosis is a guided form of meditation and you get there very quickly and achieve amazing results.
One clinical study of hypnosis written up in a major medical journal concluded that patients who quit smoking with hypnosis are twice as likely to remain smoke-free than those who quit on their own.
In another study, hypnosis was shown to be 3 times as effective as nicotine replacement therapy and 15 times more effective than trying to quit on one’s own.
Plus a study of 60 overweight females concluded that hypnosis was 30 times more effective than other programs for weight loss.
So don’t waste any more time becoming frustrated by trying to force yourself to change a habit – and yes, stress is also largely a habit… I can help.
