Put Your Mask on First: A Simple Self-Care Plan

Today, I want to talk about making a self-care plan in three simple steps:

  1. Talk to Someone
  2. Take Time for You
  3. Try Deep Relaxation

Many people who come into my office have been so busy taking care of other people and other things that they have completely neglected caring for themselves—often for years on end.

In many cases, it can feel like we don’t have a choice. We have family to look after, children to care for, and so many other things that we allow to take priority over caring for ourselves.

But what happens when we neglect self-care? We can’t keep going forever. Eventually, we break down and become unable to help anyone. It’s sort of like ignoring the oil-light that goes on in your car. If you ignore it for too long, then your car breaks down and it won’t work any longer.

If you can’t help yourself, how can you help anyone else? When I talk to clients with this problem, I remind them of airplane safety: always put your oxygen mask on first.

So here are three simple steps you can take toward prioritizing self-care.

1. Talk to Someone

Do you have someone who will hear you out when you just need to talk?

Perhaps there is a close family member or best friend you can call who will take time to hear your thoughts when you need a place to air them. Or maybe you need to talk to someone who is disconnected from your day-to-day life, such as a long-distant friend or even a therapist.

Don’t underestimate how important this is. Make sure you have someone to talk to every now and then, so that you don’t have to feel like you’re carrying all of your burdens alone.

2. Take Time for You

Take a look at your calendar.

How many people own your time?

There’s your boss, your family, friends, coworkers. Once all of their needs are scheduled in, I bet there isn’t much time left just for you.

You need to make that time. Schedule it in and keep it sacred.

Perhaps “me-time” for you, is doing things like taking a long walk every morning, sitting in the park and reading a book during your noon break, or listening to your favorite music while relaxing in the tub after dinner.

How you take time for yourself is completely up to you, but two things are important.

First, make sure everyone knows you’re unavailable. Switch off your phone. Tell the kids you’re going to be out of reach for an hour. Ask your partner to give you some time alone.

Second, do something that relaxes and rejuvenates you. Don’t think about work, and don’t do anything that makes you tense. Give your mind and body a break. Let your thoughts wander and find inspiration.

3. Try Deep Relaxation

Do you struggle, even when you have found time for yourself, to quiet your mind and find relaxation? Let’s face it: this isn’t easy.

In such a high-paced, inter-connected world, thoughts buzz around our head at a rate equivalent to activity levels on Twitter during the Oscars. It’s no wonder we struggle to disconnect!

But it’s at times like this where a tried-and-proven tool such as hypnosis can come in.

Hypnosis puts you in a state of deep relaxation, so you can finally let go of all the stress that is muddling your mind and interfering with your progression.

Hypnosis is a scientifically tried-and-proven tool that can help you re-program your mind through a state of deep relaxation.

At my office, I offer a free screening to see if hypnosis is right for you. So, when you’re ready to take the next step in your self-care plan, give us a call at (647) 210-8842.

Celebrating Our 6-Year Anniversary: The Greater Toronto Hypnosis Story

14 May 2019 Our Story

This month, Greater Toronto Hypnosis is celebrating its anniversary and to share our excitement we’re offering $100.00 off any program you sign up for in the month of May!

After six years of beautiful opportunities to help people through hypnosis, I’ve been inspired to reflect on what got me started on this track in the first place.


My Story

I’ve always been the kind of person others would open up to. Some people will know exactly what I mean. In high school, I earned the nickname “The Therapist” because people would just talk to me and for some reason, they felt comfortable sharing the personal and intimate things that were on their hearts.

I realized this was a gift, and because I’ve always loved helping people, I knew there had to be a way I could use this gift to do just that. While I continued to pursue other career paths, I held onto this feeling of being pulled back to helping others.

In 2012, I went through some of the biggest personal changes I’d ever experienced. As my world was changing in [so] many ways, I was given the chance to learn how hypnosis can be used in a therapeutic way to help people.


Does This Actually Work?

Until I experienced it myself for the first time, I couldn’t help but wonder, does hypnosis really work?

My close friend, who teaches hypnosis, convinced me to give it a try. I thought it could dovetail nicely with what I was already doing and my future career goals, so I went for it. As the saying goes:  “opportunity knocks softly”, and I, of course, am very grateful that I heard the call and listened. So I began my training.

Part of the training involved my teacher hypnotizing me for the first time. What I experienced blew my mind and I immediately felt the positive effects of hypnosis. You can read the story in this post about getting started with hypnosis, but in short, I discovered that hypnosis was a safe, completely natural, side-effect free way for people to tackle the big problems that plague our lives. These issues include stress, anxiety, panic, overeating, smoking, procrastination, and more.

More importantly, because it worked for me, I thought, This can work for anyone! Within hypnosis, I saw a tool with amazing potential to effectively help people. And that’s what inspired me to launch the Greater Toronto Hypnosis Centre.

By no means am I calling hypnosis a magical cure-all for the struggles of life. There is no such thing as a “magic pill”. But does hypnosis work? Does it help? I can say from personal experience and the results many of my clients have achieved over the years:  yes, hypnosis works.

You can read dozens of stories from people we’ve helped on our testimonials page.


Helping People Through Hypnosis

With hypnosis, I ventured into a new world. I went through the training to become a Certified Consulting Consulting Hypnotist, created a brand and website, and opened my first office in May 2013.

Initially, my focus was to help people lose weight and stop smoking; the business and scope of practice grew remarkably from there. At Greater Toronto Hypnosis Centre, we’ve been helping people improve their lives physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Six years later, the business continues to grow. And I couldn’t be more grateful for it. I love empowering people to make positive changes in their lives and achieve their goals.

I am privileged to have this job and look forward to many more years of using hypnosis to help people. To all of our past and present clients, thank you for business and continued support!

Getting Started with Hypnosis

16 Apr 2019 Habits & Goals

Spring is here, and with it the promise of new life. Today, I’m reminded of the many people who have found new hope in a surprising place: seated comfortably in the chair of a hypnotist’s office.

Many people misunderstand hypnosis, and therefore miss out on its potential as an all-natural tool for positive change. In this post, I’d like to help you understand how hypnosis works, and talk about the steps a hypnosis program will take you through.

What steps will I take with hypnosis?

When you begin a hypnosis program, you will go through a number of stages.

Imagine getting on a treadmill for the first time; you won’t be able to run for an hour, or even twenty minutes at first, because you’re not used to it. You’ll need to work up to longer workout durations, by regularly exercising your body and building up strength.

The same is true for hypnosis, although the process is a bit different. Whereas on a treadmill, you’re exercising your body’s muscles, with hypnosis, you’re exercising your brain.

Our hypnosis programs will take you through the following steps:

  1. Learning to let go.
  2. Seeing the big picture.
  3. Rebuilding the blocks of your mind.

Let me help you understand each of these steps.

Step 1: Learning to Let Go

Before becoming a hypnotist, I was a total control freak. One day, many years ago, a close friend of mine invited me to try hypnosis. She had a successful hypnosis practice and wanted me to experience the benefits of hypnosis.

I scoffed at the idea at first, as I had many misconceptions about hypnosis. I honestly thought of hypnotists as performers who got up on stage, and made people fall asleep or do ridiculous things against their will.

How wrong I was! Hypnosis has nothing at all to do with being controlled or unaware. To the contrary, it’s all about willingness and awareness, and we’ll talk more about that in an upcoming post.

In the end, my friend convinced me to undergo hypnosis but I still wasn’t completely open to it. When she initiated the relaxation process, I actually had a panic attack brought on I’m sure by my unwillingness to let go. Then something strange happened: an inner dialogue opened up in my mind. A voice was telling me, “Here’s what’s going on right now, Jason: for the first time in your life, you’re starting to let go. You’re feeling this panic because you don’t want to. You’re here to relax. Hypnosis is 100% safe, so why don’t you just let go and let’s see what happens.”

I listened to that inner voice, and what happened next is something I can only describe as transformational. It convinced me that if I could be hypnotized, then anyone could be hypnotized–you just have to let go and allow it to happen.

Step 2: Seeing the Big Picture

Once you stop overthinking and let go of the need to control every little thing that is going on around you, you can start to see the big picture.

And with the big picture in sight, you can find motivation.

In future posts, I will dive deeper into the topic of motivation and hypnosis. For now, let’s move on to the next step.

Step 3: Rebuilding the Blocks of Your Mind

Imagine your mind is made up of a varied assortment of Lego blocks. These blocks have different colors and shapes and are reflective of all the intricate layers of thoughts that make up your mind.

Imagine, too, that there are faulty blocks in the mix which need to be removed and replaced. These blocks might represent negative thought patterns or bad habits. But they can’t simply be torn out: they need to be replaced by good blocks.

A hypnosis program can do two things:

  1. Replace the bad blocks.
  2. Build up good blocks.

As blocks of positive thinking and personal empowerment are added to your mind, so too will your confidence increase layer by layer.

Sounds promising, right?

You don’t have to take my word for it. Give us a call and find out for yourself what hypnosis can do.

How to Cure Premature Ejaculation Naturally

In a recent post, we talked about Erectile Dysfunction (ED). Today, I want to discuss one of the other most common forms of sexual dysfunction in men: Premature Ejaculation, or PE.

What Causes PE?

PE is more common than you may think. According to the Mayo Clinic, more than a third of men experience it at some point in their lives. It’s perfectly normal to experience PE on occasion, and if it has only happened to you a few times, you probably have nothing at all to worry about. However, if it’s a frequent occurrence, it can become quite stressful, and affect you on a psychological level. Not being able to perform sexually with your partner in bed can lead to a lot of issues with self-confidence, and frustration.

There can be various causes of PE, but when it occurs, we do know that there are a lot of emotional issues at play. As with any kind of performance anxiety, the problem is often very much in your head.

Failing to perform on one or two occasions can lead to stress, guilt, depression, and relationship problems—all of which make the problem worse. I call this the “vicious cycle of performance anxiety”, where anxiety leads to dysfunction, and dysfunction leads to greater anxiety.

A Natural Treatment for PE

If you are diagnosed with premature ejaculation, your doctor may prescribe medication, topical numbing treatments, behavioral techniques, and counseling. In most cases, a combination of counseling and drugs is recommended.

With hypnosis, I help my clients overcome PE naturally, without any drugs.

I do this by teaching individual clients how to manage their emotions, deal with stress, and ultimately overcome the “vicious cycle of performance anxiety”.

Here are some of the things my clients said hypnosis was able to do for them:

  • Induce a relaxed state
  • Help with stress and anxiety
  • Alleviate self-doubt
  • Change long-standing thought patterns
  • Build self-confidence
  • Make positive changes

Hypnosis, by its nature, is a state of being profoundly relaxed. It’s a great place to start if you need help managing stress!

Hypnosis helps alleviate self-doubt by planting positive thoughts in your subconscious mind. These positive affirmations replace negative thought patterns, and help you become the kind of person who believes in themselves, and is ready to succeed.

With a relaxed and confidence state of mind, you will be empowered to perform at peak levels in any area of life, including the bedroom.

Your Free Screening

Everyone is different, and that is especially true when it comes to hypnosis. There is no “one-size-fits-all” solution with hypnosis. Instead, I work with every client on an individual level and help them achieve their goal.

Hypnosis is about building confidence and positivity from within—the kind of confidence you can take into the bedroom with you, so you and your partner can start enjoying your sex life again.

Let’s talk about how we can make this work for you.

Can You Be Hypnotized to Quit Smoking?

In earlier posts, we’ve been discussing how hypnosis works and how it can be applied in areas such as procrastination, weight loss, and new year’s resolutions.

In this article, I’d like to talk specifically about how I help people quit smoking with hypnosis.

How does hypnosis work?

Hypnosis is not a magic pill, but it can be a powerful tool for self-improvement and positive change.

We’ve explored how hypnosis works by rephrasing your internal dialogue, creating a positive mindset that can help you achieve your goals. Another way to understand the process, is that hypnosis taps into the power of your subconscious mind, planting positive and empowering messages, which in-turn instill self-confidence. Ultimately, this can help you control your conscious thoughts and choices.

I’ve had clients tell me that hypnosis helped them “rewire” their brain and process things differently. For example, situations that used to be processed negatively and caused stress, could now be handled in a positive way with hypnosis.

Hypnosis works by:

  • Tapping into the power of your subconscious mind
  • Rephrasing your internal dialogue
  • Rewiring the brain
  • Inspiring change from the inside out

In this way, hypnosis can help people overcome all kinds of problems, from obesity to chain-smoking, in a way that is safe, natural, pain-free, and relaxing.

An Example of Quitting Smoking With Hypnosis

One of our clients at the Greater Toronto Hypnosis Centre, is an elderly woman who had been smoking since the age of 12. She was finally able to kick the habit with hypnosis, but after quitting, she still had cravings. Every smoker knows what that’s like, and how impossible it can be to say no to them—no matter how resolved you are to quit.

Here is what hypnosis did for her:  For the first time in her life, it made the cravings manageable. They didn’t disappear, but hypnosis gave her to power she needed to control them. What an incredible difference it made in her life!

Of course, hypnosis impacts everyone differently. Other clients who have come to see me to stop smoking have said that their cravings disappeared after their first hypnosis session.

Hypnosis for Erectile Dysfunction: Free Consultation Today!

Hypnosis for Erectile Dysfunction: Free Consultation Today!

Erectile dysfunction (ED) can happen to any man, and it can occur for many reasons. Although ED becomes more of a problem with age, it is surprisingly common among young men as well.

Sexual dysfunction of any kind can be terribly frustrating to deal with. While it causes stress and anxiety for the person affected, it can negatively impact their relationships too. The occasional bout of ED, can be quite common and doesn’t generally become an issue. But if ED turns into a repeating occurrence, it’s time to look for help.

Understanding Sexual Dysfunction

Though causes can be physical, the root of sexual performance problems is often psychological. And even if there is something wrong physically (restricted blood flow to the area, an injury, etc.), there will still often be a psychological component present.

Physical conditions that can contribute to sexual dysfunction include smoking, poor eating habits, a lack of physical exercise, and being overweight.

The biggest culprit of persistent Erectile Dysfunction is performance anxiety. This can turn into quite a vicious cycle: For whatever reason, you failed to perform once, and then you become anxious the next time around. This anxiety, in turn, leads to greater dysfunction. Performance anxiety and this repeated cycle can also take place in the boardroom (i.e. public speaking fears), and also on the playing field for sports players.

The good news is that hypnosis can be very effective in helping you overcome your performance anxiety, and in this case assist you in removing psychological causes of Erectile Dysfunction.

Hypnosis for Male Performance Anxiety

Hypnosis is a wonderful tool to help men get over Erectile Dysfunction, and the resulting performance anxiety. Hypnosis is essentially being in a state of focused relaxation. Once you are in this state, your subconscious mind is more open and susceptible to positive suggestions, thereby helping you learn effective methods for dealing with sexual dysfunction.

Hypnosis can teach you:

  • How to let go of stress and anxiety in any situation, including sexual encounters.
  • How to build confidence from within.
  • How to live in the moment.

With these tools, you can enjoy every moment with your partner and let go of any performance anxiety.

Hypnosis for Erectile Dysfunction

As mentioned above, there can be other causes of Erectile Dysfunction that are not necessarily related to your subconscious. Hypnosis can also help you overcome problems that can contribute to ED, and the subsequent overall lack of confidence. Examples of some of these things are:

Quit Smoking: The most common physical cause of ED is poor circulation. Since smoking damages blood cells, it’s no surprise that it can contribute to sexual dysfunction. You can quit smoking with hypnosis. Find out more here.

Eat Better and Exercise More: When it comes to improving blood circulation and overall health, a healthy diet and regular exercise routine are essential. The increased blood flow in your body can also help with symptoms of ED. Of course, breaking bad habits such as overeating is no easy task—not to mention building new ones like exercising every day. The good news is you don’t have to do it alone, because hypnosis can help you build good habits.

Lose Weight: Men who are very overweight often experience ED. By losing weight, again your blood flow can increase effectively, and your erectile function can improve. Would you like to lose weight naturally, without pills or fad diets? Hypnosis can help you do exactly that. By learning how to deal with your emotions, you can stop stress eating for good. Additionally, hypnosis helps you focus on positive thinking to build good habits.

When you have a healthier body and mind, your confidence will naturally rise, as will your performance in the bedroom.

I provide a calm, quiet and private space for men to come and discuss and deal with personal issues such as sexual dysfunction. I have helped countless men use hypnosis to increase their self-confidence, allowing them to eliminate their Erectile Dysfunction, and improve their sexual performance in the bedroom.

Hypnosis for Success: Getting over the Past

Do you sometimes wish there was a magic pill to erase bad memories, so you could finally let go of that negative event in your past? Hypnosis is not that pill. But it is an effective way to stop dwelling on the past.

Can hypnosis erase bad memories?

Many people have the false assumption that hypnosis can be used to erase memories. In reality, the only thing hypnosis can help remove from your mind is negative thinking.

In the movie “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”, Jim Carrey undergoes an invasive and very questionable treatment to wipe an ex-girlfriend from his memory. This woman had such a strong impact on him that he was willing to go to extraordinary lengths to rid his mind of her. Ultimately, the treatment backfires. The truth is that he didn’t need to forget his relationship; he needed to process it.

It is crazy how far some of us are willing to go simply to get rid of something that hurt us, or avoid dealing with a situation. Maybe it was a terrible breakup that left your life in ruins…Or it might have been an insurmountable failure at a critical moment in your career, from which you still haven’t recovered…Or perhaps it was something you learned about your spouse’s past that is now haunting your relationship. Whatever the case, we all have things from our past that we wish we could forget, or at least learn how to deal better with them.

How can hypnosis help?

Hypnosis cannot help you make these things disappear from your mind, but it can assist you in processing the things that seem impossible to handle. How does this work? For one, hypnosis helps you deal with the stress these memories cause. Ultimately, it can help you move on.

Hypnosis for stress management

Hypnosis helps with stress by getting you into a state of deep relaxation that releases tension. Additionally, it can help you adopt a healthy lifestyle that will lessen the effects of stress on your well-being. Learn about how you can adopt a healthy lifestyle with hypnosis in this post on building good habits in the new year.

Getting over the past with hypnosis

Hypnosis may not be able to get rid of what happened to you in the past, but it can give you the confidence to get over it. It’s natural for memories to fade over time. Do you still remember what you ate for lunch three weeks ago? Probably not. However, we unfortunately often hold onto bad memories such as things that have hurt or traumatized us, things we obsess over, or simply things that we don’t know how to handle. And that’s where hypnosis comes in: It can make these bad memories more manageable, and help you think about them less often. Or in the case where you do think about them and get stressed, hypnosis can assist you in relaxing and even building back your self-confidence.

Success Stories

Here’s an interesting anecdote: I once helped a 72-year-old woman who had been smoking for 60 years, to finally quit cigarettes. In the area where this woman grew up, smoking from an early age was common. However even after a lifelong habit, she was able to quit with hypnosis. Eight months later, she gave me a call to follow-up. She told me that she still had the cravings to smoke…but for the first time in her life, those cravings were manageable. She hadn’t touched a single cigarette in those eight months, despite the fact that her triggers were still there. This was quite a celebration, as she had no memory of ever going that long without smoking.

That being said, hypnosis impacts everyone differently. For some who are trying to quit their habits, their cravings may disappear entirely. For others, hypnosis may help them to simply learn to see or handle their habits in a different way.

Another client, who suffered from a constant ringing in her ears (she was diagnosed with Tinnitus), explained to me that hypnosis had rewired how she processed the ringing. She told me, “The ringing is still there. The difference is that with hypnosis, I now don’t obsess about it like I used to, and I’ve learned to just let it go.” The ringing used to cause her a lot of stress, which in turn would make the ringing even worse. But once she learned a new way to process it, the stress disappeared, and she was able to live in peace with her condition.

Hypnosis cannot erase bad memories or make your problems disappear. But it can help you process these issues effectively, assist you in getting rid of stress and negativity, and start moving your life in a positive direction. Hypnosis is also very effective to help you quit smoking, lose weight, reduce your stress, or stop a bad habit.

At Greater Toronto Hypnosis Centre, we offer a free screening to assess whether hypnosis will be good for you or not. Don’t wait until you are feeling worse and worse. Please call us today at (647) 210-8842, and see if hypnosis is right for you.

5 Steps to Take Control of Your Life

The new year has begun, and you found the motivation to make some big changes and build good habits in the new year.

But now with February in full swing, you may have already started losing momentum on achieving your goals. Maybe you promised yourself you’d stop late-night snacking, or you would quit smoking. Perhaps you decided to start that ambitious project you’d been putting off for ages…But no matter how hard you’ve tried, you give in to the urges even though you know how bad they are for you, and you stop making the effort because you’re afraid you’ll end up failing.

If these scenarios sound familiar and you’ve been struggling to take control of your life, hypnosis could be just the thing to help you accomplish your goals. Let this simple guide help you get back in the driver’s seat:

1. Embrace Your Self

The key to succeeding at anything, is that you need to accept and believe in yourself. Check out these 5 positive affirmations in one of our previous articles, that can help you do just that.

By thinking positively about yourself, you’ll be in just the right position to start on the road to success.

2. Stop Self-Sabotage

Self-destructive habits such as smoking, excessive drinking, or eating poorly, can often seem almost impossible to overcome. You know it’s wrong, you know how it affects your long-term health and wellbeing, yet you can’t say “no” to it.

Once you have started to love and accept yourself and your body, you need to start taking better care of it.

Stop the self-sabotage! If you need help to quit smoking, explore how hypnosis can help. You can also benefit from hypnosis for overeating.

3. Look Ahead

Stop for a moment and think about what you would like your life to look like five years from now. Pull out a piece of paper and start writing down who you want to be, how you want to be living your life, and what you want to be surrounded by.

Use this picture to understand what really matters to you, and what doesn’t, so you can rethink your current routine.

4. Rethink Your Routines

Think about all the things that eat up your time during the day. How many of them are helping you achieve the picture you’ve just painted for your future? How are all the big and little things that you spend time on, helping you achieve what really matters to you?

Perhaps you spend a lot of time staying tidy and organized, when in the long run this isn’t something you value as much as, for instance, having good relationships with your family and friends. Maybe you should start spending less time tidying up, and more time investing in the people who matter to you.

Regardless of your choices, taking control of how you spend your time now, can help you regain control of your life and future.

5. Hold On To Your Gains With Hypnosis

Simply taking these initial steps won’t be enough. You have to hold on to the progress you have made by maintaining the right attitudes and habits.

When clients come to see me for various issues, I am able to show them how effective hypnosis can be to help you reinforce positive ideas and attain your goals. Hypnosis is painless, natural and relaxing, and can be an effective way to reinforce positive ideas.

At Greater Toronto Hypnosis Centre, we can guide you through this process. Give us a call today at (647) 210-8842 for your free screening.

You have nothing to lose, and everything to gain!

5 Positive Affirmations to Achieve Goals

As we begin the second month of 2019, you may be struggling to hold on to your New Year’s resolutions. Don’t worry, you’re not alone. According to U.S. News & World Report, 80% of the people who set New Year’s resolutions, give up by February.

In the last article, we learned how to stop procrastinating. Today, let’s talk about another way to succeed at achieving your goals–by using the power of positive thinking.

First, how can positive affirmations help you achieve your goals, and do they even work?

How Positive Affirmations Work

If there’s one thing successful people have in common, it is the ability to be positive regardless of their circumstances. There are countless scientific studies to show how being positive affects us both physically and mentally. The truth is that the power of positive thinking is simply incredible!

Positive affirmations help you overcome self-sabotage, and can also counter the negative effects of stress. Research has shown that taking a moment to be positive will calm your nerves, increase confidence, and improve your chances of success.

5 Goal-Setting Affirmations

Here is a simple formula to succeed at achieving your goals, and by following goal-setting affirmations, you can succeed at each of these steps, ultimately reaching your goals:

Step 1: Accept yourself
Step 2: Be grateful
Step 3: Put in the effort
Step 4: Stay focused
Step 5: Believe and succeed

1. I love and accept myself exactly as I am

The first step to success is accepting yourself. How can you make any progress or change if you haven’t acknowledged and accepted who you are now? Begin with this simple affirmation of self-acceptance before setting goals for how you would like to change.

2. I am grateful

After acceptance comes gratitude. By being grateful for what you already have, you will put your body and mind in the perfect position to obtain more. Trust this true and timeless principle, and remember to practice gratitude daily.

3. Today is a new day. I will get out of it just what I put into it.

With this affirmation, you can remind yourself every morning that you are beginning an entirely new day. More importantly, remember that you must put in the effort if you want to reap the rewards.

4. I am committed to being focused on my goal. I am worth it.

In modern life, we are surrounded by distractions. Staying focused on a single goal or task can sometimes seem unattainable. When you find yourself getting distracted, use this goal-setting affirmation to refocus. Remember why you are pursuing this goal in the first place, by calling attention to your commitment and, last but not least, remember that you are worth it.

5. When I believe in myself, so do others

And when others believe in you, you start to succeed! It is amazing how people treat you differently when you are confident.

Don’t forget that it’s not too late to succeed at your New Year’s resolutions! All of these steps actually help to “remap” your brain and thought patterns, making changes from the inside out. If you need help changing the way you think and achieve your goals, I’d like to invite you to try hypnosis.

When you become relaxed and enter the state of hypnosis, your subconscious mind is more open to positive suggestions, and it becomes easier to help you deal with issues and things that are bothering you, as well as teaching you how to let go of issues and become more positive.

At Greater Toronto Hypnosis Centre, we are experts in the effective use of hypnosis to provide positive ideas in your subconscious, helping you harness the power of positive thinking from within.

Give us a call today at (416) 210-8842 for your free screening, and let’s find out how hypnosis can work for you!

Stop Procrastinating―Learn How to Achieve Your Goals Now

“You may delay, but time will not.” – Benjamin Franklin

We are only a few weeks into the New Year but could it be that your resolutions are already losing steam? If so, you are not alone. The unfortunate truth is that most resolutions taper off by the end of January, and by February the majority have failed.

Why are New Year’s resolutions so popular, yet so often unsuccessful? One reason is procrastination.

When the first day of a new year comes around, we have every reason to stop procrastinating and take immediate action. When a new year begins, we have the chance to turn over a new leaf, start fresh, and of course, we want to jump on that opportunity!

However, when the holiday season and exciting start of a brand-new year fade into mundane everyday life, we can be unbelievably quick to fall back into old habits.

And one of the worst habits to fall back into is procrastinating getting things done, working on a new goal, stopping a habit, etc.

1. Overcoming Procrastination with Positive Thinking

If you are a procrastinator, the first step to overcoming this behavior is changing your mindset.

There are many ways that we self-sabotage and procrastination is one of the biggest. Another equally calamitous one is holding onto negative beliefs about ourselves.

This is yet another reason why new year’s resolutions often fail: we don’t believe that we are good enough to succeed. On top of that, we can’t forgive ourselves when we make a mistake. Because of this, we ultimately give up completely.

This is why we need to rephrase our internal dialogue and learn how to adopt a positive mindset―and this is something hypnosis can help you achieve.

2. Making a Plan to Achieve Your Goals

If you have been procrastinating on the big goals you would like to achieve in life, you can still use this time at the start of the new year to make a change, and make things happen. You can use the power of positive thinking to stop sabotaging yourself with procrastination.

January is the first of twelve months you will get this year. Ask yourself one simple question: What do you want to have accomplished by the end of 2019?

Now, let’s talk about how to achieve your goals. Start by breaking it down into milestones such as “what part of your goal can you achieve by the first quarter?”, “how about halfway through the year?”, etc. For instance, if you want to lose 60 pounds this year, you’ll want to drop 15 by the end of March. That means losing just over a pound a week. Setting such highly achievable and measurable goals makes success all the more likely.

Next, pull out your calendar and start marking up what should be done when, so you’ll have no more excuses to procrastinate.
