Newcastle Hypnotherapy Procrastination – Nigel Hetherington

Hypnotherapy Newcastle for creating positive New Year habits where you can get more done so you can be more successful. Hypnosis in Newcastle 2013 specifically for stopping procrastination. Newcastle hypnotherapy helping you to mind shift into getting your tasks and goals completed.

Procrastination literally means putting off until tomorrow. People procrastinate for a million different reasons  like a lack of energy, not being motivated or a surprise invitation to the cinema. It could even be being overwhelmed by our task to begin with, not knowing how to begin.

Most of us actually do have really valuable and important goals and tasks to complete. They will most likely benefit others as well as ourselves. Newcastle hypnotherapy is one way you can address your procrastination and make positive changes in attaining your goal.

This is a short clip from a Clinical Hypnotherapy training in Newcastle upon Tyne.

We all have task or goals we want to complete. Sometimes for whatever reason these are put off and we do something else instead.

This looks like this : “I want to do ‘X’ but do ‘Y’ instead

Procrastination really only becomes a problem when regular procrastination mounts up and almost nothing gets done. And like most developing habits the longer it goes on, the harder it seems to break the habit.

  • I want to be slimmer but I eat chocolate every night instead
  • I want to complete my study but I watch television instead
  • I want to do public speaking but I shy away instead
  • I want to finish writing my book but I have a cup of tea instead
  • I want to share my views  with my boss but I bite my tongue instead

The premise for this particular technique is acknowledging and valuing each behaviour individually and in its own right. Using physicalised postures for each behaviour and in a hypnotic trance slowly alternating between the two.

Neuro Biology of Procrastination

This is easy to understand on one level. In terms of doing a behaviour the neurotransmitter dopamine plays a big part in motivating us to take action. If we consider the choice between two tasks, simplistically, we will do the one where we are most motivated.

Having a real sense of what will happen positively as a result of you completing your goals and tasks will increase your motivation.

Our frontal cortex also has a role to play here, so it’s not as simple as just dopamine. The frontal cortex helps us choose to put off short term pleasures now in favour of long term pleasures and rewards later on. This is about will-power. The antagonist here is most likely the limbic system which is concerned with much more immediate rewards and pleasures.

So in valuing both behaviours, we could say one more limbic and one more frontal cortex and acknowledging the positive aspects of both actions, the intention is to create a more agreeable balance in what you are doing.
