As a hypnotherapist I am constantly reading and expanding my understanding on psychology and cognitive behavioral science so as to better support my clients. I have been posting these on my FB page, and I figured I would also post them here.
Here are some points from the current book I am reading.
(The Organized Mind – Daniel J. Levitin)
“A germane finding in cognitive psychology for gaining control is to make visible the things you need regularly, and hide the things you don’t.”
“In organizing your living space, the goals are to off-load some of the memory functions form your brain and into the environment; to keep your environment visually organized, so as not to distract you when you’re trying to relax, work, or find thing; and to create designated places for things so that they can be easily located. ”
” “I don’t want to waste energy looking for things,” she says, “What good is that? I can be more efficient, productive and in a better mood if I don’t spend those frustrating extra minutes searching for something.” Thus, in fact, many creative people find time to be creative precisely because of such systems unburdening and uncluttering their minds. ”
I imagine this help to shed light on our human propensity to want to sorta and organize, and the more recent and common trends of minimization and purging of possessions.
How is this relevant to Hypnotherapy?
I can help you to stick to a routine of organization, to identify what is causing you to procrastinate organizing and adhering to your desired way to keep your living space.
I would love to work with you on this, or many other things.
