We’re all going through this pandemic together and it can seem difficult to stay positive with everything we are experiencing. Now add to that the financial strains, the health concerns, and the lack of connection, and it’s no wonder more and more people find it difficult to stay positive. Ideally, we would all like to see the glass as being half full. We also know that negative thoughts effect our mood and stress level. Whether it’s a lack of self-confidence or negative self-talk you can become more positive with hypnosis.
How does Being Negative Affect Us?
Being more skeptical, or seeing the glass as being half empty, can impact our ability to be productive. This can include being motivated at work, motivated to exercise, or something as simple as keeping the house clean. Regardless of whether you need to look for a job, or to study for an exam, being positive leads to being more motivated, productive and maintain healthier relationships. Being motivated also helps you to feel good.
So how does one feel good?
It is important to identify the activities that brings us joy. These may be things we did when we were much younger. Perhaps it was a sport or a hobby. Very often we tell ourselves that we have outgrown that joyful activity. Give yourself permission to do things that made you happy. As you spend more time engaged in activities you enjoy, your overall mood will improve and you will likely be more motivated and productive.
How to prevent negative thoughts
Hypnosis is a very effective way to eliminate or reduce negative self-talk. Hypnotic suggestions, which you can think of as directions, that are introduced to the unconscious mind can help to improve your mood. In hypnosis, the unconscious mind can be directed to focus on the positive possibilities, as opposed to any limitations. Essentially, recurring negative thoughts and experiences from the past, can be reframed.
What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis can be described as the ability to bypass the analytical conscious mind and access the unconscious. This is achieved by techniques, including but not limited to, body relaxation, overload, breathing techniques, and confusion. A skilled hypnosis practitioner can guide you into a relaxed state and give the hypnotic suggestions necessary to change what you focus on, and how you feel.
Be More Positive with Hypnosis
Hypnotic directions can help you to focus on the small things in life that make you happy. It can train you to be present and in the moment. Whether it’s something in nature, the smell of a meal being cooked, or something a child does, noticing and appreciating these things will become automatic. As more of your attention is focused on things that bring you joy or make you smile, you will not only find that you feel better but you are more productive.
What else can hypnosis help with?
Hypnosis is a powerful tool that is also used to help motivate people to exercise, stop procrastinating, break bad habits, and make healthy lifestyle choices. Hypnotic suggestions given to the subconscious mind are accepted and can become the automatic default response. This can make things like regular exercise, healthy food and portion size choices, and staying positive your new reality. If you recognize that you have difficulty staying positive, you should consider hypnotherapy.
