Now is the Time for your Mid-Year resolutions



July is a perfect time to think about Mid-Year resolutions. This mid-point in the year offers a unique opportunity to plot a new path in your life; it is the month when many people take holidays and a break from the day-to-day routine. You can use the break from your normal routine to reevaluate who you want to be and what you want to accomplish.  Even if holidays are not in your immediate future, you can use this time in the summer to reflect on the changes you want. You can dedicate this extra time to yourself and to your goals.


Regardless of whether you reached your New Year’s resolutions or not, you are not the same person that you were six months ago. You have changed, learned new things and gathered new experiences.  Given that you are no longer the same person as you were, it is reasonable to consider reevaluating your January goals.


Your hypnotherapist can be your coach; s/he can help you clearly define your goals and assist you to overcome barriers to success. The hypnotherapist is trained to understand how human behavior sometimes leads to self-sabotage, how to get past those behaviors and help create a resolution that is more likely to result in success. 


During the hypnosis session, the hypnotherapist helps you to make the goals vividly real, thus creating motivation to help you reach your goals.  The hypnotist can work with you to replace bad habits, such as late night snacking or sugar cravings, with more positive habits and routines.  In addition, in hypnosis, you can explore and address the emotional underpinnings of your challenges; for example, feelings of low self-worth or gaining weight may be a strategy for avoiding dealing with other issues.  This extra assistance helps you stay on track and increases your capacity to tap into your internal resources to reach your goals.
 
In summary, now is the time to reinvent yourself into the person you want to be. While there are many blogs and many sites that will describe how you should reach your goals, you still need to have the support and motivation to follow through.   This is where your hypnotherapist can help.  Your hypnotherapist can help remove challenges or barriers to success and cheer you on as you move towards your new self.
