New Year’s Resolutions for the Last Time
With Clinical Hypnotherapy
By: Gwenn Henkel, CMH, MH
It’s hard to believe, but it is that time of year once again, where we decide once and for all to lose excess weight, start exercising daily, stop smoking, stop procrastinating, de-stress, and take better care of ourselves just to name a few of the many promises we’ve made to ourselves over the years. With a traditional New Year’s positive outlook, we determine that THIS time our resolutions will work!
The time seems right because the New Year is the perfect time for the New You to emerge! But what happens within two weeks or even less? Our old patterns show their ugly faces. We find ourselves right back where we have been over and over again in our lives, following the same routines we just swore we would change. We may even try to start over on a Monday (that’s a good day isn’t it?), only to find that by Tuesday we have fallen back into the old routine and stayed there ¦¦¦.all year!
I was once told that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again while expecting different results each time. Now here’s my question to you: why would you continue to choose the same old route to change, when you repeatedly find yourself with the same old result? Why does this happen? Well, first of all, that positive mind-set that you have at New Year’s comes from your willpower, which resides in your conscious mind.
Behavioral habits, however, are controlled in the subconscious mind the part of our mind that lies just below the surface which makes willpower the wrong tool for making permanent changes in our behaviors. The right tool is Clinical Hypnosis. This is the science that gives us access to the subconscious mind; it allows us to make changes in a natural way, without struggling.
By changing the messages that are stored in the subconscious mind, you can finally break the blocks that stop you from creating what it is that you want in life. Let the year 2009 be the last time you make New Year’s resolutions you don’t keep. Move on to your fullest potential now!
