How many times do you aim to reach your fitness goals only to find them counteracted by excuses?
It could be that you always find it hard to wake up in the morning or just procrastinate on doing the routine you chose every single day. Even if coaches motivate you, your mindset may be making only baby steps toward a permanent change. Your habits do not stem from your conscious mind but from the subconscious.
Hypnotherapy can be a useful way to create changes in your subconscious.
How does hypnotherapy work when it comes to exercising every day? Hypnotherapy does not work with the fact that you are unmotivated but looks for the cause of it.
While the conscious mind is responsible for things such as willpower and reasoning, the subconscious mind is responsible for 90% of what is really happening with us throughout the day. The subconscious mind works with illogical patterns of reactions and behaviors. While a coach can talk to our conscious mind, hypnosis is the way to bypass the conscious mind and talk directly to the subconscious.
The reason why we often do not want to work out or find excuses is that there are underlying patterns that stop us from the success we strive for. Hypnosis instills positive behaviors and patterns that easily allow you to be motivated and excited about going to the gym or working out.
Hypnosis can present working out to your subconscious as something exciting rather than something that you “have to do.” Then motivation will arise naturally without effort, and you will be the one who cannot wait to hit the gym.
Most people imagine hypnosis to be something in which they are without any control and doing everything that the hypnotist tells them to do. This is far from what real hypnotherapy is about.
In hypnosis, a state of deep relaxation is coupled with suggestions and gentle guiding in which you are the one who leads the process. When you are relaxed in hypnosis, you can access the hidden parts of your conscious mind that are blocking you. We can help you change the targeted patterns. During the session, you will have complete control of what is happening, and you can stop the process at any point.
Regular hypnotherapy can yield permanent results in all areas of life, including the way you look. During hypnotherapy, techniques like visualization and positive affirmations can help you take better care of yourself and be more alert for what is happening within your subconscious. Before you know it, fitness and working out will no longer feel like a chore but something that comes naturally to you without stress.
There are many benefits to a good workout. It can promote better sleep, boost energy, help you fend off diseases and depression. It can can also help you manage stress and produce endorphines, the feel-good hormones.
