Can hypnotherapy help me to stop procrastinating?

Hypnotherapy for Procrastination

Most people experience pulling things off. From getting out of bed in the morning, to studying for exams, tidying up, updating a C.V. It can be the smaller more mundane things, or life changing tasks. Procrastinating means we underachieve, miss opportunities, and waste time. Imagine how your life could be different now, if you never procrastinated at all. Well, you don’t need to be perfect but if you do struggle with procrastination there are some simple steps you can take to make things easier.

Procrastination is the thief of time, collar him

– Charles Dickens

How to stop procrastinating

Make it a specific plan, not a vague wish. If you need to get anything done, don’t leave it as a passing thought on the end of a to-do list. To get things done make a detailed plan. Instead of the thought, “I’m going to study tomorrow”, add detail to it. When are you going to study? Where are you going to study? Exactly what will you study and for how long. Add a backup plan, if you plan to start at 10 am and something stops you, what is your backup plan, set another time in the day to do it. People have vague wishes all the time, “I want to loss weight”,”I want to exercise more”. Flesh them out with details. When will you exercise. Where? What exercise will you do? And for how long?

A goal without a plan is just a wish

– Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

As well as a detailed plan if you still struggle try breaking the task down into smaller tasks. So it doesn’t seems so daunting. Help yourself get started by doing the easier or more enjoyable tasks first. And if you’re easily distracted then distance yourself from the distractions. You can even motivate yourself to spring into action by giving yourself a small reward every time you achieve part of your plan.

Hypnotherapy can help with procrastination

If you are still struggling after:

  • Setting a detail plan with a backup plan
  • Breaking the task down into small tasks
  • Doing the easiest/most enjoyable first
  • Clearing distractions
  • Motivating with a small reward

Then maybe hypnotherapy can help you to stop procrastinating. When we make something a habit it is easy to do, it becomes effortless and we don’t need to procrastinate. Hypnosis is a tool that utilizes a person’s subconscious to enable them to create new habits and change their perspective on life. If you internalize a new view of yourself, you automatically change your behavior to line up with this new perspective.

Hypnotherapy to resolve the underlying issues

People can procrastinate due to reasons that they are not fully aware off. There can be subconscious reasons why you do not want to achieve. One of the most common issues is anger. Anger against authority figures, not doing, not achieving takes away the power from the authority figures. Self-doubt can also be an issue to procrastinate. When you do not believe you can achieve something, it feels safer not to try. Then you will never have the disappointment of failure. Some people can also suffer perfectionism. The effort and time to achieve perfection can seem impossible and unless you can do a perfect job it’s not worth even starting.

Whatever you want to achieve, you can. Follow the simple logical steps and if you still struggle then look at the underlying reasons. If you need help a trained hypnotherapist can help guide you to the right answers. Everyone can learn, just as you learnt to read. Everyone can change, as you change all the time. As long as you want something you can achieve it. You don’t need natural ability, a certain level of intelligence, there’s no need for willpower. You can do it.

Clarity of vision is the key to achieving your objectives.

-Tom Steyer
