A majority of people experience fear of missing out at some point in their lives. Social media has contributed to an increase in this occurrence. Societal pressures make people feel they have to live a more glamorous life. We see people portraying themselves as doing so many exciting things and one wants to try to be like or outdo the competition so to speak. It puts this weight on your shoulders to do things either you don’t want to do or in many instances realistically can’t afford to do for fear of missing out, also known as FOMO. Fortunately, you can conquer the fear of missing put with hypnotherapy.
Social Media FOMO
Social media has become such a central part of people’s lives that it can impact how we view ourselves and create a significant sense of anxiety. People present themselves a certain way on social media. One sees all the exciting things that others are doing and feels that they cannot measure up. This creates an all-consuming fear of missing out. We judge people on social media and look to see who’s doing the next best thing. It’s an endless cycle that leaves most feeling unsatisfied and anxious. This fear of missing out can make us do things we don’t even want to do. We do things to keep up and to make our lives look more interesting.
How Hypnosis Can Help Conquer the Fear of Missing Out
Hypnosis has been highly effective in dealing with many forms of anxiety and stress created by how one perceives the external environment and the people we come in contact with. This fear of missing out creates an anxiety one doesn’t know how to overcome. Most people want to take a break from social media, but the pull is too great.
Hypnosis provides a state of relaxation where one can see things more clearly and from a different perspective. It is a healthy and natural way to address and overcome stress. When in hypnosis, it enables you to block out all the information coming through social media; break the ties and look through a different lens. Through various techniques including relaxation exercises, suggestions and imagery, you are able to let go of the internal pressures one feels to measure up. It offers healthy coping strategies that shift your perspective to a more realistic viewpoint. You no longer feel this overwhelming pressure to post what you are doing all the time and to be in the know of what others are doing. You can let go.
Hypnosis for Self Confidence and Change of Perspective
Hypnosis accesses the subconscious mind, which is what drives behavior, thoughts and feeling. Tapping into that part of the mind will allow your perspective to shift for a healthier enjoyment of social media. It will offer a renewed self confidence where you feel lighter. You are not constantly feeling judged and a tremendous weight that has been lifted off your shoulders. It enables you to free yourself of these perceived societal pressures and live your life as you choose.
A shift in perspective from hypnotherapy can be so freeing, to be and accept who you are. You will be equipped to deal these situations calmly with a great sense of peace and fulfillment.
