Depressed and lacking motivation? Hypnotherapy can help

Finding enrichment and purpose in what we do, be it at work or at home, a hobby or sport, will add to our life experiences. Motivation and enjoyment in life are a worthy pursuit. If a person is depressed and lacking motivation then Hypnotherapy can be of help.

What can be done if one is suffering with depression and lack of motivation? Can Hypnotherapy really help?

In my experience as a hypnotherapist, having worked with many people over the last two decades, I have found hypnotherapy to be a quick and easy way to help people make improvements in their outlook and motivation in life. Hypnotherapy can help with depression caused by boredom as well as bad habits, such as smoking, gambling or drinking.

Scientists are also discovering that being bored and lacking direction, could be costing us dearly. Boredom and unhappiness could be robbing us of years off our lives.

You really can be bored to death, scientists discover

Researchers say that people who complain of boredom are more likely to die young, and that those who experienced ‘high levels’ of tedium are more than two-and-a-half times as likely to die from heart disease or stroke than those satisfied with their lot.

  • Tedium: People with dull jobs must find outside interests, experts warn 
  • Boredom could be shaving years off your life

The scientists said this could be a result of those unhappy with their lives turning to such unhealthy habits as smoking or drinking, which would cut their life expectancy.

More than 7,000 civil servants were studied over 25 years – and those who said they were bored were nearly 40 per cent more likely to have died by the end of study than those who did not.

The study shows that it is important for people who have dull jobs find outside interests to keep boredom at bay, rather than turn to drinking or smoking.

Psychologist Graham Price says: ‘It is important to distinguish between cause and effect. Are some people turning to drink and drugs because they are bored or because they have certain underlying characteristics?’

In summary; people who are bored are more likely to get depressed, lack motivation and also tend to become more easily addicted to substances.

It has been found that such unmotivated people should get treatment, seek out a good hypnotherapist, as hypnotherapy can be of great help.
