How To Stop Nail Biting
Unleash the power of your mind to quit biting your nails. In this VideoJug tutorial, a certified hypnotist teaches you how to banish bad habits.
Hello, I'm Ben Huss. I'm a certified hypnotherapist, and I'm going to show you tools and techniques to help you unlock your potential. I'm going to show you how you can stop biting your nails.
Make sure you're comfortable, relaxed, and won't be disturbed for the next couple of minutes. What do you see, hear, and feel when you get that urge to bite your nails? Maybe bring your nails to your mouth to help trigger those feelings. Now pretend your eyes are cameras, and take a snapshot of that moment.
Let's call this the "cue picture." Now close your eyes, and we're going to create a new picture, this time with yourself in it. How are you going to look when you've made the changes you desire? Put this in the picture.
Notice how you feel, what you can see, and what you can hear. Let's add some positive qualities to this, like confidence and inner strength and anything else you desire. Anything else desirable, just tuck it in.
We're going to call this your "desired outcome" photo. Now, take this picture and make it bigger, double its size, make it brighter, make it even brighter, amplify that brightness. That's right.
Make it fill the whole of your mind's eye. Good. Now, just send it all the way off into the distance.
Now clear your mind, make it blank again. We're going to bring back that cue picture, the first picture, bring back that snapshot. Now, I want you to make this big again, to make it really big and really clear.
But, in the bottom left-hand corner, I want you to put a desired outcome picture, but it's going to be very dim. In a moment, I'm going to say the word "swish," and when I do, I want you to shrink down the cue picture, and make really bright, really big, so it covers the whole of the cue picture, that desirable outcome picture. And we're going to do this quickly, in the time it takes me to say "swish.
" So, you ready? Let's go. Swish! Good. Open your eyes.
We're going to try that again. So, close your eyes. Get the cue picture up.
Make sure it's filling the whole screen, it's nice and clear. And in the bottom left-hand corner, we have the desired outcome photo, and we're going to make that desired outcome photo really big and bright so it covers the cue picture. Are you ready? And, swish! Good.
We're going to do it a couple more times. Open your eyes. Close them again.
Swish! One more time. Open your eyes. Close your eyes.
And, swish! Excellent. Take a break for ten minutes, and when you come back think about that old habit, and notice how you think about it differently and how, when you think about it, the new desired outcome comes to mind. You may find that no matter how hard you try, this new desirable outcome comes straight to your mind.
And that's how you stop biting your nails. .
