Mind Fitness Questions
What is the difference between Mind Fitness Training and Hypnosis?
Mind Fitness Training is our terminology for Self Hypnosis. As Certified Hypnotherapists, we know the positive value of hypnosis in any form. We have found over the years that many people are somewhat still afraid of the term “hypnosis”, although this area of study has a solid background and history of positive results. As a result of this “fear”, our terminology is contemporary and applicable to a wide range of people. Mind Fitness Training or Self Hypnosis does allow the individual to attain an altered mind state that allows suggestions to be accepted without the conscious mind dictating a right or wrong approach. It additionally lowers stress, relaxing the person, which aids in a reduction of the many negative implications of stress and anxiety.
Hypnosis is a state of intense relaxation and concentration, in which the mind becomes remote and detached from everyday cares and concerns. In this relaxed state the subconscious mind is best able to respond to correctly formed suggestions and imagery. This allows the subconscious mind to focus on the things you wish to change and on the ways that you can best do so.
Hypnosis conducted by someone that is qualified and certified can have lasting positive results with many areas of concern as our next question alludes to. Hypnosis conducted by a certified practitioner are called here- hypnosis and allows the individual being hypnotized to go deeper into a suggestible state of mind, then what Self Hypnosis will allow.

Smoking is a subconscious need and drive, but the actual behavior is within your conscious control. Some will quit – cold turkey, but remember everyone is uniquely different so it is hard to say how long it would take you. Mind Fitness Training does add value to any program.

How many things can I personally work on with a Mind Fitness Training Program?
There are many factors that have to be considered before giving a universal answer. What will work for one, may not work for another. We always suggest keeping things simple until you see results with specific areas of concern. Start with one to two things to re-program before confusing the issue and diluting your efforts. Your Mind Fitness Training program will have you in a suggestible state for about ten to twenty minutes. This is perfect to focus your thoughts and energy on one to two concerns. Show progress to yourself and you can take on added responsibility. Remember we are unique individuals. What is easy for one will sometimes be hard for another. Take your time.

Will Mind Fitness Training help me with Public Speaking?
Being nervous before any presentation in front of a small or larger group is always a good thing as it focuses your energy on the moment. The problem with many is that they literally get “stage fright”, where they freeze up with a numerous set of physical reactions – nervous stomach, sweat, headaches, etc., that they cannot perform naturally when the moment comes up to say something. Mind Fitness Training will alleviate these reactions as you have taken control of the moment with a more relaxed state of mind and the task at hand. You can greatly increase your control of the fear with Mind Fitness Training.

You are in total control while in the relaxed state of mind. You will find that after about ten to fifteen minutes of Mind Fitness Training time, that your mind will naturally start to wander. This is your signal to come out of the state and back to the “real” world. The positive result, no matter what you are working on while in the relaxed state is that you will come out of this short session very relaxed and more in control of your self. These days with stress and anxiety at an all time high, the ability to reduce stress will add years to your life while giving you a new attitude.
Will a regular program of Mind Fitness Training make me more suggestible to suggestion?
