It's that time of year when lots of bugs seem to be going around. One person begins to cough, sneeze and snivel and everyone trys to give them as wide a berth as possible. Everyone hates that heavy headed, headachy feeling which goes with a cold and the sore throat and sitting up in bed at night because you cannot breathe when you're lying down.
Some people seem to catch one cold after another and spend all winter feeling under the weather. Others manage to sail through this cold season in perfect health. One cannot help but wonder what makes the difference. Clearly there are many different factors which one could take into account.
Probably the most obvious is the number of people you come into close proximity to. The more people you spend time cooped up inside with the more likely you are to catch some type of bug or another. You might also consider other lifestyle choices such as the quality of your diet or whether you dress suitably for the temperature.
One factor which people rarely think about is how their mind can affect their susceptibility to illness. How you think and your habitual beliefs about yourself has a massive impact upon your health. You are in fact what you think.
How do you respond when you get the first little inkling that you might be getting a cold? Do you think "oh darn, I'm getting a cold" or do you think "I'm going to fight this one off"? Your thoughts will instinctively direct the course of that cold over the next few days.
Most people do not realize that you don't just have to roll over and accept it when a cold knocks upon your door. You don't have to play doormat to that visiting cold. You have the power to at least try to keep that door locked and protect yourself from visiting germs. You can create a mental barrier which protects you from illness just as you can take physical steps to help maintain good health.
If you are sick and tired of getting sick then you can take steps to learn how you can think yourself healthy once again. This process can be made more powerfully effective with the help of hypnosis as hypnosis provides access to your subconscious mind. This is the part of your mind which acts instinctively and automatically, the part where habitual thoughts and behaviors are stored. It you want to change a habit, hypnosis will make the process a whole lot easier.
