SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 26, 2012) - By April 1, half of those who have made New Year's resolutions fail at "uninterrupted success" of their goals, according to a study by University of Scranton psychologists. Hypnotherapist and Success Coach Jenn August has created "Achieve Your Resolution" hypnotherapy audios to address popular problems with which people struggle: titles include "Achieve Your Weight Resolution", "Achieve Your Exercise Resolution", "Achieve Your Healthy Eating Resolution" and "Achieve Your Sleep Resolution".
"Those plagued by attempting to achieve the same resolutions each year can achieve their goals by re-setting the subconscious mind," says August. "80% of what we think, feel and do is controlled by our subconscious mind, and reprogramming it is a fast and powerful way to change existing habits for good."
For those who are unfamiliar with hypnosis, it is described as "an altered, relaxed state of mind, often used to help learn to control bad habits, pain, and stress," on www.hopkinsmedicine.org. Hypnotherapy has been proven to be effective in helping with sleep, weight loss and adherence to exercise and nutrition programs in numerous studies. For example: "Acute and chronic insomnia often respond to relaxation and hypnotherapy approaches, along with sleep hygiene instructions, in just a couple of sessions," according to a study on "Hypnotherapy for Sleep Disorders", conducted by Beng-Yeong Ng, MBBS, MMed (Psychiatry), FAMS and Tih-Shih Lee, MD, PhD, FAMS. Numerous studies conducted in the '80s and '90s concluded that hypnosis helps people attain their weight loss and health goals.
"Whenever someone wants to reach a goal, they may not succeed if what they want is in conflict with their subconscious mind's self-protection systems that were programmed between the ages of eight and 12," says August, who created the "August Method" after years of observing this with her clients. For example, if someone carries extra weight, their subconscious mind may have created it specifically for protection, so no matter how hard the person works to lose the weight, nothing will change until the subconscious mind is reprogrammed to see the weight loss as safe and positive for that person.
August is an advocate of hypnotherapy because it is what she used to change her life. As a child, August suffered through feelings of unworthiness. As an adult, August discovered hypnotherapy which removed fears and other barriers that prevented her from realizing success in her life goals. As a result, she was able to build a six-figure business and help her clients become more successful through her proprietary programs and interactive workshops and her new audio series.
On each "Achieve Your Resolution" recording, August's calm voice leads listeners through a guided hypnosis process so they release old belief systems and then create a new self-image in their subconscious mind. The subconscious mind acts on this self image as the new protection system and helps create and maintain the desired outcome. To achieve the best results with hypnosis, people must see themselves succeeding with their desired resolution outcome by listening to the audio repeatedly until it becomes the "new normal". "The subconscious mind is either a success machine or a failure machine: it all depends on how it is programmed," says August.
The "Achieve Your Resolution" audio recordings are approximately 25 minutes each and should be listened to daily for 30 consecutive days then less frequently until the subconscious mind has the new imprint and the new behavior becomes the default behavior. The recordings can be purchased individually ($19.97) or as a set ($67). As an added bonus for purchasing the set, you will receive Holistic Nutrition Coach Kelly Cornell's "Whittle Your Waist in 30 Days or Less" four-part, home-study program, which will help you create balance in your body, mind and spirit. All recordings are available for download to your iPod, MP3 player or computer at www.achieveyourresolution.com.
