How to Keep Your Good Intentions in the New Year

Everyone knows the frustration of setting good intentions only to lose momentum quickly. There are many techniques that address the challenges of changing or modifying behavior for positive purposes. One of the most effective is learning how to use hypnosis to help achieve these goals. At 7 p.m., on January 5, Barry Wolfson, director of the Hypnosis Counseling Center, will present “How to Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions” at Honor Yoga, 17 Reaville Ave., in Flemington. This free presentation will be held in person and virtually. Additional classes in January for help in quitting smoking, losing weight and improving sleep are detailed in the calendar on page 32.

“Although January 1st connotes a new beginning, just picking an arbitrary date to make a change doesn’t always make it happen immediately. It’s like riding a bicycle. Very few of us have probably mastered that task immediately,” states Wolfson. “It took practice and then some more practice. But overall, learning to balance was fairly easy to master. The same is true for hypnosis.”

The talk includes the opportunity to experience an optional 5-minute hypnosis test and well as a Q & A session. This is the perfect opportunity for those curious about the benefits of hypnosis to explore how it can help bring a sense of control to their life. 

Hypnosis has been medically approved as a safe, painless and customizable way to aid individuals with a variety of behavioral issues including phobias, fears, sports performance, insomnia, migraines, stress reduction and myriad other conditions. The only tools needed for hypnosis are one’s mind and the desire to succeed.

 Wolfson shares that hypnosis can eliminate yo-yo dieting and help individuals reach an ideal weight by eating healthy and satisfying meals. It is also used successfully for the cessation of smoking—one of the most difficult habits to break—without anxiety, weight gain or mood swings.

 The Hypnosis Counseling Center has over 35 years of experience helping clients attain their goals and successfully change their lives for the better. HCC offers individual and group counseling sessions in more than 30 adult and continuing education schools and corporate sites throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

5 Top Tips to Finding Your Next Doctor

1 Keep an Open Mind! Healthcare has come a long way. Today, you have access to practitioners that branch outside of traditional medicine and aim to identify the root causes of conditions while using alternative treatments that may help you get the relief you need. Just because it’s not a pill, doesn’t make it pseudoscience.

2 Build Your Health Care Team. There is no one doctor that can be the be-all-end-all for your health needs. Be sure to have a team of practitioners with different “lenses” and areas of expertise who will treat the root cause and not just the symptom(s).

3   Environment Influences Healing. Health is multi-factorial. Your mental and emotional environment plays a pivotal role in your healing potential. Your doctors and their staff should create an office atmosphere filled with positivity so you can get the most out of your care.

4 Your Story Matters.  Before you begin any treatment, be sure to have a comprehensive consultation to discuss your health concerns. Find practitioners who welcome questions and will take the time to listen and treat you with respect.

5 Report of Findings. When it comes to our health, we often make decisions without understanding the risk versus benefits. Knowledge is an important part of the healing process and is essential to make conscious, informed health decisions. Find practitioners who take the time to explain their exam findings and the recommendations for treatment in ways that make sense to you.
