When the new year rolls around, so many of us sit down to decide what it is we really want to achieve in the next 12 months.
While we always have good intentions behind us, after a few months the novelty of the new year wears off and many of us revert back to old habits. If this is the year you really want to make lasting change, it may be time for you to consider getting a little extra help. And for many, hypnotherapy is the answer.
Here are some common New Year’s resolutions and how support from a hypnotherapist could help you finally keep them!
“I want to change my diet”
Eating habits can be very difficult to break. The way we eat can be ingrained from childhood, leading to some people turning to food as a source of comfort. If you have tried and failed to change your eating habits in the past, you may want to look at your relationship with food and see if hypnotherapy can help.
“I want to cut down/stop drinking alcohol”
January is the month many of us feel a little worse for wear after the festivities of Christmas. With parties and social occasions galore, Christmas often sees us drinking more than usual. If you’re keen to cut down on the amount you drink or even stop drinking altogether, seeing a hypnotherapist might help.
A hypnotherapist can use suggestion techniques to help alter thought patterns that may lead to you drinking. This can act as a reinforcement to your willpower and may prove to be the extra support you need to change your drinking habits for good.
“I want to quit smoking”
Quitting smoking is tough, but the benefits to your health are undeniable. There are many approaches you can take to kick the habit, including nicotine replacement therapies and good old willpower. If it’s something you have struggled to do in the past, just a single stop-smoking hypnotherapy session could help.
Hypnotherapy is natural and safe, so you really have nothing to lose!
“I want to stress less”
Stress damages both our mental and physical health over time. Embracing self-care and making time for relaxation should be on everyone’s resolution list in our eyes. If you know you’re prone to stress, you may want to explore how hypnotherapy can help.
Your hypnotherapist can show you relaxation and self-hypnosis techniques so you can continue what you learn in your session at home.
