Lacking motivation, and wondering why?

Have you ever found yourself staring at a pile of dirty dishes or a full garbage that needs to be taken out, with zero motivation to get it done? Or maybe you have some vague goals you want to achieve but don’t have that ambition driving you forward. And more to the point, you don’t know why!

Many people wait until they feel a spark of inspiration to start working on something or take action. But unfortunately waiting for that spark could take a while!

When you’re struggling to find motivation, it may help you to have a goal in mind or visualise the outcome you want. But again, this often isn’t enough of a push.

Most people believe they live their lives consciously; setting yourself goals and living your life with the intention to reach them. But incredibly research now suggests that your subconscious mind is where the majority of your cognitive activity (95% to 99%) comes from; with the conscious mind only having 5% influence. This means your subconscious mind is capable of helping you to achieve, as much as it can sabotage or limit your capabilities without you even knowing it.

It’s not always clear why some people have developed self-defeating thoughts or habits, but it is possible to reprogram them.

Hypnosis is capable of influencing the unconscious expectations that determine your approach to life, the attitudes you apply and the choices you make. It is a medium that can help to reprogram your subconscious mind to be more positive. Positive thinking becomes instinct; freed from the effort of trying to be positive; you will begin to expect the best automatically.

If you truly believe that things are going to work out for the best, then not only will you feel more confident, but you will have more energy and enthusiasm to achieve.

Confidence is key – how to build yourself back up again

People with confidence are often admired and can be seen to inspire confidence in others. Confidence is presented when a person feels self-assured and has a true belief in their capabilities. They know that no matter what obstacles come their way, they can overcome them; seeing the positive side, even when things aren’t going to plan.

Consider CEO’s of the biggest companies in the world or professional athletes at the height of their careers; these are the types of individuals who have high confidence and self-esteem. This level of confidence opens the door to significant success and achievement.

But don’t get me wrong; confidence doesn’t only apply to those who want to lead people, companies or countries. For the rest of us, confidence plays an important role in helping to achieve successes at work, in personal relationships and simply everyday life. It helps you to be unafraid to take risks which may have life-changing effects.

However, most people find themselves plagued by feelings of little to no confidence; thinking your work is not good enough, or that you aren’t as smart or attractive as your colleagues are common thoughts when you lack confidence.

A great way to build up your confidence is through hypnosis. Your subconscious mind stores over four hundred million pieces of information related to our personal attitudes, beliefs, values and thinking. When placed into a deep state of relaxation through hypnosis, a person becomes highly receptive to new suggestions and ideas. During this state, a therapist can help you to form positive thinking and improved behaviour patterns that will help to build your confidence.

Having confidence is vital for anyone to be able to lead a full life. Hypnosis is a positive process that will help you improve your confidence mindset and enable you to lead a happier and healthier life.

Don’t let anxiety rule your life

Feelings of anxiety in certain situations can be helpful; keeping us protected from danger by triggering our survival instincts. But when your worries become persistent or are blown out of proportion, it can start to get in the way of you living your life.

An anxiety disorder is characterised by feelings of fear and persistent worry that can negatively impact and take control of all aspects of a person’s life. Some of the most common anxieties are fear and/or worry of social situations, authority, relationships, or financial matters.

A person living with anxiety will learn to avoid certain situations that create feelings of worry or panic, and don’t recognise the impact it is having on their lives. For instance someone who experiences feelings of anxiety at work may unintentionally put themselves in a situation that leaves them overlooked for promotion.

If not addressed, anxiety can lead to other mental disorders such as agoraphobia and obsessive compulsive disorder. But anxiety does not have to control your life. There are plenty of effective tips, tricks and treatments that can help you overcome feelings of anxiety.

Some simple tips or tricks that you can try are:

  • Take the time to relax….! We all think we know how to relax but chilling out in front of the TV or playing a video game isn’t true relaxation. They may seem to relieve you of stress through distraction, but it’s effect will only be temporary. For proper relaxation, try things like deep breathing or yoga to calm your mind and body.
  • Get enough sleep! Sounds simple doesn’t it? But when it comes to the right amount of sleep for your needs – think not too much, but not too little.
  • Eat healthy and exercise. Choose foods that will give you long-term energy instead of short bursts, and participate in exercises that send oxygen to every cell in your body.

If your feelings of anxiety are becoming harder and harder to manage and are negatively impacting your life, consider seeking professional help. Hypnosis is a proven, non-invasive method for overcoming anxiety. The process of hypnosis is rewarding, positive and safe. A person who has received hypnosis therapy can often feel a boost in confidence, increased self esteem and a more positive outlook on life.

Hypnosis calms your nerves, mind and the whole body, alleviating the stress that hinders your everyday life. When a person undergoes hypnosis, they are placed into a deep state of relaxation. It is during this state that the subconscious mind becomes receptive to positive suggestion, new ideas and perspectives. It is then that a therapist can provide motivational encouragement, confidence building statements and a means of overcoming anxiety. This process will help to change the behaviours and thinking patterns of the person receiving the treatment.

Procrastinate too much? How hypnotherapy can help you stay on track

Do you often find yourself distracted, or maybe looking for something to distract you from the task at hand? Don’t feel bad, we all do it!

If you’re a procrastinator, chances are you’ll often find yourself doing anything else but the very thing you really need to do. Especially when there is something that really needs your attention but you just don’t have the motivation to address it. Sometimes it’s those mundane, everyday things; like sorting old files, tidying your wardrobe or doing the housework. But then there are those more important, bigger commitment tasks that put us at risk of failing or looking foolish so we put them off to avoid feeling bad about ourselves.

This habit tends to be carried into adulthood from our school years; when as kids we would put off doing our homework so that we could have fun instead! Little did we know that it would follow us into our later years; still fighting those old habits that we started as kids. You don’t want to go through life putting off the important things by distracting yourself.

You’ve probably heard the numerous tips and tricks out there to increase productivity, and decrease procrastination. Take short breaks, make lists, prioritise. But they don’t work for everybody.

If you consider yourself a notorious procrastinator, you might like to consider a more permanent way of improving your concentration.

Hypnotherapy is a great way to lead your mind into a positive change. While the most commonly treated ailments are things like smoking and stress, any mental block can be treated with hypnosis. It allows you to open your mind up to developing new habits, and new habits start with a change in your mindset.

If you’d like to find out more about how hypnotherapy can help you with your bad procrastination habit, contact us to today and book an initial consultation with a member of our team.
