SELF-HYPNOSIS

[HOW-TO] Dress in comfortable clothing.
Enter a quiet, dim room and sit comfortable in a reclined position. Do not lie down. Do not cross your legs. Cover yourself with a blanket and wear headphones, if necessary.
Allow for 30 minutes of uninterrupted time (silence your devices and lock the door).
Choose your hypnosis goal and memorize it as a mantra or affirmation. It is important to visualize your mantra in the present tense, such as: “I am in control, and I am valuable;” “I choose to no longer smoke cigarettes;” or “I am eating healthy.”
