Happy New Year everyone!
I hope you're having a brilliant start to the year, wherever you are in the world.
Five days in and we are melting in the heat here in Melbourne, Australia. It's a tricky time of year as summer dries everything to a crisp. The country regions, and even some outer suburbs of main cities can catch alight so easily.
I generally don't make New Year Resolutions, aside from promising I'll write more and being healthy and all that. But, one thing I started just after Christmas is now becoming a habit (OK, I started this two weeks ago, but I'm still going, so I get credit for that, right?) is listening to hypnosis apps. I have one for helping me get deep, restful sleep and another for helping me with my all time worst habit.
I could procrastinate for my country.
Sure, I have good intentions of getting things done. I even mean it at the time I say, "I'm going to do this." And then I get distracted. Or let myself get distracted. But I tell you what, I can't blame anyone else. This is my problem and it's about time I acknowledged it and did something about it. I can't keep saying "Ondine 4 is coming soon," because Christmas just came and went and no final Ondine instalment. Who am I kidding?
Yeah, so this hypnosis app, which is quick and cheap, is making inroads into my cerebellum. It's about turning those negative bossy thoughts into 'cheerleaders' for getting things done.
Instead of the whiney voice telling me, 'you should be writing', it's becoming part of my inner cheer squad, saying, 'your writing is such fun, you love writing, look at you go.' or equivalent. In any case, it's turning the self-loathing into self-loving and that's good for the psyche.
And good for production.
Do you make New Year's Resolutions? Share them with me and we'll encourage each other through the year.
Tip: If you're looking at buying a hypnosis app, I recommend going straight for the 'pro' app in whichever one you're interested in. That way, you can load it from the cloud on to all your devices. If you download the free app, then purchase the rest as an 'in app purchase', the full program will only appear on that particular device. The cost is the same either way, which I only realised afterwards.
