Tips For Using Self-Hypnosis To Aid With Anxiety

Pedro Carr

If you have anxiety, you might feel as though your life is out of control and that there is nothing that you can do to stop it from getting worse. This can be a terrifying feeling that is not going to be enjoyable for you. It is going to make it difficult for you to be successful. One way to deal with this level of anxiety is to use self-hypnosis. Here are some tips.

1. Create a Positive Affirmation Mantra

Your first step is to create a positive affirmation mantra. Try to make it with a statement about yourself. You are always telling yourself stories about yourself, such as that you are not cool enough to talk to your coworkers or that you are dumb because you don't understand a difficult task immediately. Take control of these stories by consciously creating positive ones, rather than unconsciously creating negative ones all the time. 

To create a positive affirmation mantra, create two or three statements that start with the word "I." Make sure that these statements are positive statements about yourself, such as "I am helpful," "I can learn this," or "I am worth talking to." Write these statements down. Get into the habit of repeating them whenever you feel threatened or anxious.

2. Sharpen Your Focus Through a Physical Sign

Each time that you think one of your positive affirmations, do something physical such as pinching the back of your hand or stretching the joints in your hands. This will help anchor your positive affirmations too something physical. When you feel that physical sign, your subconscious will become more aware of your positive affirmation and more likely to actually believe it.

3. Link Your Mantra to Your Breathing

Finally, find a quiet place to sit down and relax. Close your eyes. Let all of the air in your body out and then take a deep breath in. As you breath out again, think or say your positive affirmation. Let all of the air out again and breath in. When you let it out, say your affirmation again. Each time you say your affirmation, perform the physical sign that you have chosen. Do this for a set number of times or a set number of minutes. Focus on your mantra and how it is true or how you would like it to be true. This will help anchor your mantra to both your mind and body and will help you master your anxiety before it turns into an anxiety attack.
