Procrastination: Alison

I've had problems with procrastination since elementary school, but it's steadily gotten worse over the years. I felt like I didn't have any control over my behavior. It was like living in someone else's body at times. I would look at things and have the intention to do them, but feel physically and emotionally paralyzed. My issues with procrastination kept me from completing major goals in my life. I wasn't as effective as I could be at my job because I was unfocused and wasting time.

This issue has kept me from graduating from college and doing the things in my life that I wanted to do. I didn't think that I would be able to get through the semester and graduate, so I knew that I needed help. I've tried the typical regiment of self-help book, I'd read up on procrastination and did some exploring, but I couldn't find a solution on my own, so I decided to get somebody else to help. Mentally, I've always known that I could do it, but emotionally I didn't believe that I could. I did some internet research about A New Day Hypnosis and got a lot of good feedback from former clients, so I decided to call.

I started noticing that I was more relaxed after the first session. I felt less anxious when I studied, which was a really big deal for me. I'm getting more done now and my mental barriers are dissipating. It's been easier to get started on things and I have fewer propensities to avoid things.

This has been the first time that I've ever seen any improvement in this throughout my entire life, so it's been pretty incredible. Things have been much easier to do than before. I've felt a lot better long term and much more motivated. It's easier for me to overcome the anxiety and I'm getting more things done with less stress. I feel more confident because I realize that I can do things and that gives me a sense of control. It's actually feasible for me to graduate now.

My life has improved because I'm able to get things done and I'm not frustrated with myself the way that I used to be. I would recommend A New Day Hypnosis to anyone who wants to overcome procrastination. Laura is really good at breaking down a lot of the components that go into procrastination and addressing them. She's good at helping to identify the patterns of behavior and that makes it much more beneficial. I can see the improvement in myself and I'm confident that I'll continue to improve.
