When I find interesting articles, I post them here. Here is one from 1999, over 10 years ago.
Do you think things have gotten better since then. Of course, not! Now we have children being seen for stress and being given tranquilizers! As a parent myself, I find this outrageous. What’s happening is that we have people who were never taught the skills needed to reduce and control stress. They are now parents and are the role models for their children. We are teaching bad habits and turning to drugs to fix all of our failures. Feeling depressed? There is a drug to pep you up. Feeling wired and over anxious, there are drugs to fix that. Can’t sleep, take this! Eating too much, take that. What a cycle of events society has created!
Learning to control our lives from within benefits you, your spouse, your children, your employer and even your neighbors. While there are medical conditions that require medications, the tendency is to over-medicate. Using your powerful subconscious, you can reprogram yourself to a more positive, productive and have a satisfying way of life.
There are simple techniques such the Emotional Freedom Technique. You can regain control through the use of hypnosis. Remember, no hypnotist can force you to do something you don’t want to do. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. The hypnotist is only a guide. Under hypnosis, you reprogram yourself to get rid of unhealthy habits, thoughts and ideas. All that is required is a deep, honest desire to make a positive change in your life.
We role-model for our children whether we want to or not. Each generation is doomed to repeat their parents’ mistakes until one generation decides enough is enough and makes a change. Will you be the one with the courage to make that change?
