Overcome Stress & Anxiety

How to Break a Bad Habit

A habit is defined as a tendency that is hard to quit. Common bad habits that many struggle to quit include overeating, smoking, nail biting, bed-wetting, stuttering, and more. Bad habits are oftentimes so hard to break because they are more controlled by the subconscious mind than by the conscious mind. So in order to best tackle and overcome bad habits like these, we must first revolutionize how our subconscious mind works. Below, we discuss several tried and true methods that may be able to help you finally break a stubborn bad habit for good.

Set Attainable Goals

It’s okay to start off slowly. In fact, it is actually encouraged when setting goals with habit breaking. Making unrealistic goals for yourself will increase your chances of self compromising your momentum and confidence along the way. Recognize that breaking a bad habit is a journey and that there will be highs and lows throughout. In the long run, setting incremental goals is a very effective way to help keep you on track with your goal to quit.

Treat Yourself

There are countless ways you can treat yourself that will ultimately support your goal of breaking a bad habit. Rewarding yourself to a full night’s sleep, a healthy meal, or a walk out in nature will promote continued overall wellness and a desire for a healthier life.

Another option is to quite literally reward yourself with something you really desire. It could be a trip, a manicure, a new outfit, or anything that will truly keep you motivated to reach your goal time and time again.

Recognize Triggers and Cues

More often than not, one can find patterns with their habitual behaviors, such as triggers. Cues and triggers can be anything from feeling lonely and anxious to hanging around certain people or places. While these often vary from person to person, steering clear of triggers is a great tool for anyone wanting to seriously break a bad habit.

Hypnosis

Hypnosis is a lasting and effective method for breaking bad habits because it targets issues at their source by eliminating the desire to perform the habit in the first place. Many habits are associated with strong emotions and feelings of happiness or sadness that need to be addressed from within in order to be overcome. Instead of giving up something that a person enjoys, the goal is to be free of the unwanted habit and live a happier life.

At the Mind Enhancement Center, we firmly believe that old habits don’t have to die hard and when you do change your habits – you change your life. Visit our website to learn more about our services or contact our team today directly at (817) 589-7407.

How Hypnosis Can Help With Weight Control

When people think about weight control, they think about seeking the advice of doctors, nutritionists, and personal trainers. However, did you know that hypnotists can also help with controlling weight gain? In this month’s blog, we will discuss how hypnosis can actually help with weight control and ultimately lead to a healthier lifestyle.

Reasons Behind Weight Gain

There are many variables behind weight gain but a common reason is due to overeating. When a person overeats, it may be because they feel like its fulfilling a necessary need whether it be for entertainment, boredom, or to reward themselves. For example, after committing to a strict diet plan or workout schedule and ultimately losing their desired weight, an individual may feel the need to reward them self by eating unhealthy foods. In most cases, people accidentally eat too excessively after forbidding themselves from fattening foods, which results in gaining back all of their weight and more. Others may overeat because they see food as a comfort and a source of relief from a past trauma. Whatever the reason may be, the most common offender is a person’s mindset and how they perceive food.

Using Hypnosis

Now how does hypnosis come into play? Hypnosis can help change a person’s attitude and perception of their relationship with food. The ultimate goal is to positively influence the client’s mind and have them feel that smaller portions are adequate and will satisfy their appetite. In other words, people don’t have to give up their favorite foods and turn to a strict diet, and instead they can still enjoy the same things but in smaller quantities.

Overall, hypnosis is all about changing one’s habits for the better. It addresses the subconscious and the root of what makes you tick. If you have problems sticking to a healthy diet or have trouble with portion control, hypnosis may be a viable option for you.

Additional Tips to Integrate Into Your Life:

Other than hypnosis, it doesn’t hurt to integrate more healthy routines into your life. Here are a few to help with weight loss:

  • Keep a food diary or tracker and identify if you’re eating because you’re hungry or out of boredom.
  • Incorporate more fruits and vegetables into your meals.
  • Remember to drink plenty of water daily.
  • Make a habit of taking walks or jogs throughout the week to keep your body moving.
  • Try not to skip meals because this can slow down your metabolism and make it harder to lose weight.

Quickly Releasing Negativity

Everything in the universe starts with a beginning, like a seed birthing a tree. Your thoughts also can birth lousy behavior or habits. Using your mind’s eye, you can discern what deep thoughts are hurting you or helping you. Just like a tree, you can identify what part of the tree is dying and growing.  Positive and negatives thoughts can bring different emotions. When you linger on negative thoughts, it becomes easier to have a negative mindset, and positive thoughts work similarly. 

As you walk on your path, you can easily walk to your destination. But when you depart from the original path, it becomes harder to walk due to external obstacles. The same approach can come from our thinking. Our thoughts become more repetitive the more we act upon them.

Hypnosis can help you change this automatic pattern by activating those responses.  You can be in a safe, comfortable environment such as our office and receive new positive thoughts thru the power of suggestion. Hypnosis is effective because when you are deeply relaxed or in a ‘trance-like state, you are more susceptible to suggestion, and therefore more likely to adopt a new habit, the ‘learned’ response.

The Five Stages of Grief

“Grief is like the ocean; it comes on waves ebbing and flowing. Sometimes the water is calm, and sometimes it is overwhelming. All we can do is learn to swim.” – Vicki Harrison

The emotions we feel from losing a loved one can be overwhelming. As we try to process this loss, grief begins to set in. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, a renowned psychiatrist, established the theory that grief occurs in five distinct stages: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. Of course, all of us grieve differently, but at some point, we will come to experience one or more of these stages. Continue reading to learn more about the five stages of grief.

Denial

The first stage in the theory is denial. It is used to minimize the pain of loss. As we are trying to comprehend a reality without our loved one, we need to survive this intense emotional pain. Denial slows the process down so we can adjust to a new reality. It’s a time where we may reflect on experiences with this person and wonder how to move on without them.

Anger

After losing a person we love, we can experience anger. Extreme emotions, such as anger, is something that happens when we are uncomfortable. So when we express anger, we may be left feeling isolated in our experiences. Because it’s such a strong emotional release, it can push others away or let us be perceived as unapproachable.

Bargaining

Desperation sets in as we begin to bargain with ourselves. We start to consider ways to avoid the pain. We may find ourselves making requests to a higher power. There also are moments where we may feel completely helpless because the situation is out of our control. We are trying to get back control, even though the pain is inevitable.

Depression

As we come to terms with the loss, we are now faced with reality. We can begin to grieve, but feel a deep sadness that wasn’t there before. During this time, we may retreat inward and become less sociable. This sadness can slowly turn into depression, which has multiple signs. From loss of appetite to feelings of hopelessness, depression comes in many forms.

Acceptance

As we reach a place of acceptance, we can begin to move forward. We may still feel the pain of loss, but we can begin to heal and reconnect with others for support. We can start to feel more hopeful again.

Conclusion

If you feel overwhelmed by sadness or grief in your life, contact our experienced hypnosis and EFT specialists at the Mind Enhancement Center. We offer grief management so you can regain control in your daily life and routine. Please give us a call at (817)-589-7407 today!

Hypnosis vs Meditation

In many ways the wide spread stigmas surrounding hypnosis and meditation have resulted in a lot of misinformation about how these practices are executed, their tangible benefits, and the philosophies behind them. Below we discuss the benefits of hypnosis and meditation, how they’re similar, and how they are also very distinctive from one another.

How to Practice

Meditation:

There are varying levels, or states, of mediation that can be achieved with practice. Basic mediation can be accomplished alone simply by focusing on the breath and only the breath. Most beginners will find this difficult as it’s natural at first for the mind to wander. Over time and with practice it will become easier to still the mind for an extended period of time.

Hypnosis:

Hypnosis is a guided means of communication between the conscious and the subconscious mind to effect positive change in one’s life. It is achieved with the help of a professional who will guide their client into a deeply relaxed state using verbal repetition and mental visual imaging. During this state the conscious and subconscious are more receptive to helpful and positive suggestions.

Benefits

Meditation:

In a relatively short amount of time those regularly practicing meditation will experience improved concentration, control over thoughts and reactions, reduced levels of stress and much more. Being able to control the breath and heart rate has also been linked to improved physical health as well.

Hypnosis:

Hypnosis can help people achieve a rapid and lasting positive change mentally, physically and emotionally. Once a hypnosis specialist has helped their client into a deeply relaxed state, they are able to provide tools and successful techniques that can benefit those with stress, anger, strong fears, and even those wanting to control their weight or quit smoking.

Final Thoughts

While meditation can be beneficial to many, it can rarely help those seeking relief from deeper, more complex stressors, habits, and fears. At Mind Enhancement Center you will be met with a team and atmosphere centered around quality service, privacy, and the highest codes of ethics and standards. Call us at (817) 589-7407 to achieve lasting positive change in your life through hypnosis!

While some may find communicating easy, others have difficulties with saying what they want and need. Communication skills are used every day in personal relationships, socializing with friends and co-workers, and even having a small conversation with a stranger. Therefore, if one is lacking in confidence or fears being judged, then communicating can be a challenge. With hypnosis, you can learn effective communication skills and overcome irrational fears and stresses. Read our blog to find out how to improve your daily conversations.

Building Self-Confidence

Lacking self-confidence can be an obstacle when it comes to communication. Some examples include being uncomfortable starting a conversation, running out of things to say, or worrying about saying the wrong thing. Confidence is key in a conversation, no matter if you are speaking with a friend or talking to someone new. Thus, to successfully build your self-confidence, you can practice hypnosis techniques to change your mindset. Moreover, these techniques can boost your mental and emotional well-being.

Overcoming Fear

The fear of being judged can be an overwhelming feeling. Negative and intrusive thoughts may start to creep in, even when you are trying to focus on the conversation. Rather than concentrating on what that persons thinks about you, try shifting your thoughts into a more positive mindset. Changing your thinking and social behavior may take some time, but it’s important to acknowledge that your thoughts and opinions have value. Talk with a hypnotist to explain your fears or stresses about communication and set goals for improvement.

Improve Study Habits and Memory for Distance Learning

Given the current pandemic situation, there are more students using online learning for education. It is a method where students and teachers are meeting online for classes and learning at home instead of sitting in a classroom setting. As these students are transitioning to e-learning, they may find themselves struggling to focus on tasks and remembering due dates. Follow along in our blog as we discuss how to improve study habits and memory for distance learning.

Studying at Home

Physical location plays a major role when it comes to studying. If there are distractions at home, such as a T.V., pets, or even a phone, then the ability to concentrate on homework or study for a test becomes harder to do. Concentration is essential and the learner should leave designated area when concentration becomes difficult. Getting up for rest breaks and stretches are beneficial after a long class session. In addition, blocking out distractions with visualization can help too.

Memory Development

While a quiet, designated area is necessary for learning, so is memory development. Students learning at home may become frustrated with memorizing subject matter. They may also be dealing with thoughts of fear, such as failing a test. Through the power of hypnosis, students can learn to set personal goals and create motivation for themselves. They will also learn ways to relax at will, which can lead to improving self-confidence and awareness of control.

Conclusion

To start studying more effectively today, reach out to our team of hypnotists at the Mind Enhancement Center. We use hypnotism and EFT techniques to enhance your learning and improve your memory. We want to make lasting changes to your studying habits, so give us a call at (817) 589-7407 or visit us online for more information.
