Time management hasn’t always been a strength of mine. Especially when it comes to things I really need to do for myself. For years I had five kids in the house, which took all reserves of energy, patience and time. So even when I’d promise myself to do just DO IT (hypnosis, exercise, reading for relaxation)—I’d usually end up bumping “me time” for everyone else in the family. This choice often hurt more than it helped because I hadn’t given myself the same consideration and priority which left me drained.
Part of my problem was seeing everything in chunks of time that were much too large. Exercise takes one hour. Self hypnosis, thirty minutes. Reading for relaxation? Forget about it. So it would get postponed. And so would my peace of mind.
It wasn’t until I decided that something was better than nothing. Five minutes of exercise a few times a day was a start. And once you become accustomed to inducing hypnosis, you can get relaxed in mere seconds (maybe a minute or two on a really rough day). If people could learn to hypnotize themselves and program positive suggestions in just minutes—I knew that had to become part of my daily routine. Sometimes I do it first thing in the morning, sometimes at night, and sometimes right in the middle of the kids having an argument—which helps!
Self hypnosis is by far one of the best tools I use for peace of mind, stress reduction and personal change. Somehow, it just makes everything better.
