Are you keeping your New Year’s Resolution? It’s already February and I am hearing on the ferry and in the gym that many people have already given up on their weight loss and physical fitness goals. At Seattle Hypnosis With Roger Moore you learn the self hypnosis tools to achieve your goals.
Your potential for achieving your New Year’s Resolutions is always there, you just have to decide when you’re ready. The process may be slow in the beginning but if you stick with it and utilize the mindfulness based tools that I teach, then there’s no reason why you can’t be successful.
Understanding Resolutions and
How to Keep Them
Making a resolution certainly feels a lot easier than sticking with one. There’s an automatic reward, an inertia, when we decide to make a change for the better. In those initial days and weeks the energy is palpable and the desired goal feels achievable, maybe even easy. This is the year we’re going to lose that weight or get organized, but then something happens. We decide the gym can wait until tomorrow or that the schedule can be put off. Our old habits creep back in and we eventually succumb to our well-known routines.
If so, the first thing you should understand is that impatience will get you nowhere. Remember, these are deeply rooted habits developed over a period of years and they’re not going to change in an instant. Negative self-talk only reinforces the existing neurocircuitry in your brain; that one that says this is who you are and who you will always be.
Setbacks will happen, but keep in mind you’re creating an entirely new set of skills. Very few of us could hop on a bike and ride it successfully the first time. We had to fall a few times before we mastered the complex interplay of balance and motion. Your New Year’s resolution isn’t much different.
What should you do if your goal is to lose weight and you end up eating a big piece of chocolate cake? The easy answer is to simply shrug it off, but in order to do so; you’ll need to have a plan in place. A good plan starts with clear intention.
As humans our tendency is to focus on our old self, on being what we want to change. The result of focusing on what’s wrong is that we reinforce the old thoughts, emotions and behaviors we want to change. The same old thoughts lead to the same old choices, which lead to the same old actions and behaviors which lead to the same old experiences which lead to the same old feelings which lead to the same old state of being.
You can learn self hypnosis to mentally rehearse being the change that you want to make. Hypnosis help to create the passionate conviction to achieve your goals is available in my Seattle hypnosis, Bainbridge hypnosis and online in the Hypnosis Health Info Virtual Office.
