5 Benefits of Hypnosis for Procrastination
Procrastination is sometimes a common behavior, but also a hindrance to achieving one’s goals. Procrastination is the act of postponing or delaying a task or assignment to a later time or date. As we’ve seen in earlier parts of this series, fear of failure, lack of motivation, or simply feeling overwhelmed can each lead a person into the cycle of procrastination.

Featured Series – Procrastination
Procrastination is a learned behavior that doesn’t have to be a permanent habit or state of mind that continues to hold you back. This article discusses Hypnotherapy as a complementary means to help individuals overcome the road bumps to your productivity.
As a Certified Coach and Board Certified Hypnotherapist, my approach uses a series of sessions I refer to as Transformative Life Centering. I pursue those things just under the surface that you’ve been carrying around for decades that make you fearful, unmotivated, and driven by self-doubt. Hypnosis helps to neutralize those things (and more) and it clears the way for your coaching experience without past issues hindering your future.
Coaching and Hypnosis
While hypnosis and coaching are not the same, clients often ask me, “Can coaching help me without doing hypnosis first?” Of course it can. Coaching can help you identify things that impede your progress. Then, through a coaching experience, we find solutions, new goals, a direction to focus on and you get an accountability partner. With that said, NOT addressing the internal subconscious issues that pull at you won’t make them go away because you ignore them.
It’s like trying to run a 10K race with a backpack full of rocks. The rocks represent the things you don’t see hanging onto your back that slows forward movement. During the series of hypnosis sessions, you can release the old weights and begin seeing change and opportunities right away.
To reiterate. Yes. Coaching can help you without hypnosis. Yet, the hidden things under the surface of your life that pull at you can arise later. They usually come up when you need the challenges the least.
My Experience Finding This Approach
Without belaboring the article, I’ll say that I found hypnosis when I didn’t even believe in it, and I was concerned that it might be counter to my faith. This came at a time in a toxic environment when people were killing themselves around me.
I knew I needed self-care.
As a Board Certified practitioner, I found areas that work well, and places I won’t go because of my faith. For more details, one of my books, “Renewing Your Mind – Perspectives of a Christian Hypnotist” gives the full story with case examples.
For now, let’s look at some benefits of this modality. In the next article, I plan to address coaching in more detail.
The 5 Benefits of Hypnosis
1. Address Underlying Issues
Procrastination is often a result of underlying issues, like fear of failure, lack of motivation, or self-confidence. Hypnosis can help to address the internal hindrances by accessing the subconscious mind and identifying the root causes of your procrastination. By doing so, hypnosis can help you overcome the negative thought patterns that lead to procrastination and replace them with positive beliefs and habits.
2. Enhance Motivation
Hypnosis can help to enhance motivation by interacting with the subconscious mind with reinforcing positive messages that promote productivity and goal achievement. Through hypnosis, you’ll visualize your desired outcomes. The subconscious then strengthens your belief system to increase motivation.
3. Overcome Limiting Beliefs
Limiting beliefs are negative thoughts that constrain a person’s ability to achieve their goals. Hypnosis helps to identify and address these limiting beliefs by accessing the subconscious mind and replacing the negative beliefs with positive ones. This sense of empowerment and confidence helps you overcome procrastination and take action towards your goals.
4. Create Healthy Habits
Hypnosis can help you create healthy habits that support your goals and promote productivity. By accessing the subconscious mind, hypnosis reinforces positive habits and behaviors to overcome procrastination. This can include habits like prioritizing tasks, setting deadlines, and breaking down large projects into smaller, manageable steps.
5. Reduce Stress
Procrastination can often result from stress. While hypnosis helps to reduce the stress by promoting relaxation and calm. This subconscious shift helps reduce feelings of overwhelm and promote productivity. Hypnosis can also help you develop coping mechanisms for dealing with stress, which can prevent procrastination in the future.
Hypnosis is a powerful tool that can help you overcome procrastination and achieve your goals. By addressing underlying issues, enhancing motivation, overcoming limiting beliefs, creating healthy habits, and reducing stress, hypnosis can promote productivity and success in all areas of your life.
