Sleep Your Way To Success!

Sleep Your Way To Success!

This likely won’t surprise you that most people do not get enough sleep. Some even brag about it as though only getting four hours of sleep makes you tougher. Yet, research is consistently showing the opposite!   Lack of sleep leads to poor decision making and lower productivity. In Arianna Huffington’s new book, Thrive, she states that not sleeping well at night is like showing up the next morning for work after having several shots of alcohol. Research also links chronic sleep deprivation to higher risks of diabetes and heart disease. Many people stay up eating at night, which is a leading reason for the obesity epidemic we are facing in America.   Sleep, like relaxation and adult playtime, is not a luxury. It’s a necessity and people can improve their sleep habits with Motivation Expert Tim Shurr’s 4 simple steps. Decide you are going to get better sleep. As with anything else, you must be intentional about developing your new sleep routine. You need to plan it out in advance and make yourself follow through until it feels more habitual. Start winding down 30 minutes before bed. Your brain needs to rev down so turn off the TV, put your cell phone down, and use that time for reading, soaking in a warm bath, prayer, mild stretching, or listening to a guided meditation. Avoid talking about “upsetting” situations or your giant To-Do list prior to bed as this will rev your brain back up. Instead, get into a habit of reviewing what you are grateful for and you’re quality of sleep should improve. If upsetting thoughts pop into your mind at bedtime, pretend you are a movie editor and begin changing the images....

Client Success Stories – Forgiving Others Sets YOU Free!

Client Success Stories – Forgiving Others Sets YOU Free!

Have you ever felt hurt by a parent or loved one? Most have and sometimes we carry around these painful feelings our entire lives. These past hurts create self-limiting beliefs that can negatively affect you and your loved ones. Yet, you can quickly be free from the harmful affects of holding a grudge. Here’s Bob’s story…   Bob was interested in exploring hypnosis as a tool for “self awareness.” Unlike many of our clients, he did not have a particular goal in mind. Yet, during our initial conversation, Bob alluded several times to feeling strong, painful emotions towards his now deceased father. Bob believed his dad had thought of him as “dumb” and “clumsy,” and consequently had not respected him much. Bob had carried this belief, and the painful feelings of rejection from his father, for nearly forty years! Using an “Affect Bridge,” a hypnotic regression tool, we helped Bob access the ISE (Initial Sensitizing Event) that made him feel like he “wasn’t measuring up.” Bob vividly recalled a childhood memory of helping his dad shoe an uncooperative horse. When Bob dropped a tool, his frustrated father blurted out comments that would negatively affect his son for most of his life. Don’t ever let anyone tell you that “sticks and stones may break your bones but words can never hurt you.” Negative words can be devastating, especially to a child. Accessing upsetting memories can be upsetting. Some therapists think it’s actually good to have someone fully re-experience all the pain and trauma of their lives as if it’s “draining the emotion out of them.” We strongly DISAGREE with that approach...
