Are you making the same resolutions again this year – lose weight, get fit, stop smoking, cut down on alcohol etc? By the middle of January have you given up giving up?
When life kicks in, the good intentions fly out of the window. Do the commute to work in the cold, the daily school run, the trip to the supermarket combine with the wind and rain see you opening the wine or heading for the chocolate once again?
Here at Leatherhead hypnotherapy many clients want to change their lives. They are not happy with their weight, their health even their job and they are looking for the motivation to change.
One of the mistakes we all make when we do our New Year resolutions is the shopping list. ‘I will stop smoking, drinking, lose weight, go to the gym’ and then when we fail at one resolution we give them all up.
The best way to achieve change is baby steps. Try cutting out one thing at a time. For example giving up the chocolate biscuit with morning coffee is not telling your subconscious you can never have a chocolate biscuit again, it is sending the message that you are in control over when you eat the biscuit.
If we try to deny ourselves too much at once we rebel and then we give up giving up. By taking one step at a time, make one New Year resolution that you can keep then in three month’s time the success of that step will help you take another. The feeling that you have achieved something even if it is only the habit of those morning chocolate biscuits will encourage you to try something else.
You can make a resolution any day of the year because every day is the start of a new year, maybe Big Ben doesn’t chime on the 10th February for example but if you join the gym on that date and then stay with it for the next 12 months that was a new year resolution.
So on January 1st take one step in the right direction towards reaching your goal and after six weeks (because this is how long it takes to form a new habit) then think about the next goal.
If you do want to stop smoking, lose weight or cut back on your drinking then don’t forget hypnotherapy can help to reprogram your subconscious mind.
