Bad habit and pills – that sounds as if I have an awful tale to tell.  Let’s see!

Tablets and a bad habit are on my mind this morning. Yesterday I went to get my repeat prescription for the barrow load of tablets I have to take. BUT – there was an issue ( I still don’t understand what – but there you are – it is a fact ) and the prescription needed to be set up again by my doctor and with luck and a strong wind they will be there by Thursday (today)

So by rooting around in the medicine cabinet, I found I had got enough for this morning.

And then Goodness me – NO!….

We were out of Activa or Yoghurt!!    Was this going to be one of those days?

Why was that a disaster – well years ago I had to get over something that for me was an issue. I just couldn’t swallow tablets – no matter how small.

How crazy are we all?

Bad habit – it surely was. I could eat normally – but a tablet in my mouth was a gagging starter.

The time came though where I had to get over this problem.   I had got to get over this as my health depended on me ‘taking the pills’.

Porridge and yoghurt became the answer.   Within no time I was swallowing tablets easily as long as it was with a yoghurt or similar.

Today –  this morning – I had no yoghurt or porridge. Question? – was the bad habit still there.

So I gave it a go – glass of water and what happened?   It was fine – there was no issue at all.    That is the first time I have tried to take tablets with water for many years.   Isn’t the mind weird but wonderful?

Now there is a really important thing here about making changes to your mindset.

Conventional wisdom is that it takes 28 days to free yourself from a bad habit. Unfortunately, that notion is just plain wrong. Bad habits are hard to break because they are Habits (notice the capital H). Remember: your brain has put your bad habit in the “automatic” category. Once there, it’s difficult to shake it free.

Yes, 28 days can give you a good jump start. It is probably longer and more like three months to substitute a new behavior for a bad habit.

But I know from working with Adam Eason that behaviours and bad habits can be changed – helped by hypnosis.

Let’s say that laziness is a bad habit or maybe poorly motivated is like a bad habit.   Just make that assumption.   If they are then this year’s  new  resolutions are probably having difficulty.

So this month (February) in our Hypnosis For Download online store I have made the theme one of motivation and keeping going. Self-Hypnosis can help you make dramatic and permanent changes to your mindset. But the behaviours will need a couple of months to make permanent change. Self-hypnosis will help you imagine the changes and keep you working towards the desired outcome.

Hey I am not the person to tell you all of this – but go and find articles by Adam Eason.  Visit his blog at http://adam-eason.com

Well if you are reading this Adam and you can’t get me on the phone mid morning it is because i am on my way to the doctors to get some tablets.
