Have a Good Day – with NLP & Hypnosis

It is very easy as we become embroiled in the responsibilities of our day to become ‘detail’ orientated. At its worst we can become completely reactionary, people responding mechanically to whatever pressure is coming our way. Of course the ‘detail’ of say a working environment has to be attended too. How well we do that can vary greatly and we may not always act in ways that do ourselves justice.
What can be too easily overlooked is the fundamental importance of our state of mind. Our state of mind is the emotional and attitudinal orientation we will be behaving from. The fact is the ‘better’ we feel the more able our upper brain functions are. The more effective and harmonious our responses and decisions and actions. Quite simply strong emotion or a negative internal dialogue makes us stupid.
It serves us well to find a way of regularly connecting with a resourceful state of mind. When we do this we give ourselves the best opportunity to act in ways that fulfill our ability. This is not to say that life will become a ‘piece of cake’- that would be unrealistic. It does mean though that we can fully appreciate the good times and be more resilient in the challenging ones.
This is my suggestion
You pencil into your schedule a break of regular 5 minute slots
1. Allow your mind to disengage from your activities and responsibilities. Consider these ways: Conscious abdomen breathing; breathing out tension on the out breath. Systematically relax the muscles of the body. Sit quietly and one sense- sight, sound and feeling – at a time notice the information being received.
2. When your mind is calmed begin thinking about the hour or two or task ahead. Run through the probable sequence of events. Rehearse the behaviours and attitude you will be manifesting and drawing on. How you are going to navigate that time ‘being your best’. What is your intention?
3. Imagine that future period has ended and you are taking another break. What did you want to have happened? How do you want to feel? What will inform you that you behaved in a way that met or even exceeded your best possible ability?
Remember that thinking just in terms of failure or success is just one form of measurement. If it just results in us becoming arrogant or despondent then it’s pretty valueless.
More useful in encouraging skill development is appreciating ‘failure’ as feedback. What can be learnt so that an adjustment can be made next time?
Good luck!
