Are you experiencing “holiday stress?” Are you concerned about being perfect when you get together with family or about having the “perfect” gift for someone? Then you have or are worried about expectations (the act of anticipating something). Expectations result in stress and constant preparation for situations, which may or may not happen, instead of finding the joy in the present moment, whether it’s at the holidays and any time of the year. Expectations often strengthen the “inner critic,” the part of you that judges you and makes you incredibly hard on yourself, blocking your ability to see your unique qualities and special gifts.

If you find yourself trying to live up to the expectations of others (and expect others to do the same), harshly judging yourself, living in a pressure cooker of increasing stress, you are not alone. Many people feel this way and there is a way to release expectations, self-judgment, and attachment to outcomes, which allows you to relax, and enjoy the holidays and everyday more fully. Consider hypnosis! Hypnosis is a wonderful way to release expectations, break or change habits, and focus on what you want, not on what you don’t want. It is a great way to feel better and improve your self appreciation.

This is what Joan B. of Watervliet, NY had to say about hypnosis, expectations, and stress: “I am letting go of things that used to drive me crazy. I am letting go of old resentments; getting excited over life again. This has changed my life! I am getting back my joy! I am blessed to have found you.” Isn’t it time you felt good about yourself?
