How To Restore Your Self-Confidence After The Recent Lockdown

We have all been in this lockdown for several months now, and it is now apparently coming to an end. Hopefully, you might have learned how to manage the previous one. For example, you probably successfully learned how to stockpile food with long dates, such as tinned soup and tinned

vegetables, and things that you use a lot such as washing up liquid, kitchen towels and soap. Stockpiling is all well and good, but you need to make sure you have enough room in your house in which to store it. Some people have even resorted to buying an extra fridge-freezer for this very purpose, but you have to make sure that you keep an eye on the use-by dates.

You might have found that your old eating habits, your old perhaps previously constant personal care habits and your old socializing habits seemed to be something from the distant past. You have probably learned to put comfort before looking good, and food and drink before anything else, simply because you were shut in the house all that time. You were probably thinking, as the lockdown continued, that it would just come to an end eventually, and you would be able to go out and about freely again, anywhere and everywhere, just as you always did, without any hindrances or restrictions.

You might also have found, in this current pandemic, that you have become bored, restless and depressed, and you did not want to go anywhere particularly anyway. You just wanted to stay home, stay safe, and stay well. The thought of catching Covid-19 has probably made you agoraphobic and frightened of going outside, and even of opening your windows in case the virus just comes flying into your house. You might even have found that you still feel wobbly about the thought of going out anywhere, because you have not been using your leg muscles very much by walking, jogging, running or even dancing.

What you must do now, as the lockdown restrictions begin to ease, is remember that you are not alone in this terrifying situation. You are not sailing this ship on your own. You are not alone. You are not, and I repeat, not, alone. Everybody else has been in the same boat for the last few weeks. So when the current pandemic restrictions begin to finally be eased by the government, you will, yet again, just like you did the last time, be able to go out of your own front door. You will be pleased to find that everybody else has also not been to the hairdresser’s for simply ages, and they have all eaten far too much and drunk far too much alcohol and put on a load of excess weight as a result.

Even if you have constantly been made bored stiff by all the lockdown rules and regulations of what you can and cannot do for all this time, you will be very pleased to know that in England, from Monday, the 12th April some of the current regulations will be eased. The main ones are that pubs and restaurants with outside space such as beer gardens will be re-opening.

Pubs and restaurants will also be allowed to serve food indoors, although this may be stopped again. All the non-essential shops, garden centres, hairdresser’s and barber’s will also be re-opening. A trip to the hairdresser’s or the barber’s will certainly help to uplift you and restore your self-confidence. You will also once again be able to go and exercise in the gyms, and go to the swimming pools. Even the zoos will be open again for you to wander around in the sunshine, admiring the animals.

However, you will feel more confident if you still continue to follow certain rules, such as washing your hands frequently, wearing a face-mask, and social distancing, because these things will be with us for probably another year. And with regard to international travel, this is currently banned from the UK except in certain cases, but the government is considering Covid-19 passports, vaccination passports and/or self-done lateral flow tests. The

earliest date from which people in the UK can travel abroad legally is 17th May but this may change. Booking a foreign holiday is one of the things that give people something to look forward to which in turn can help their self-confidence, so if you wish, make enquiries and book a holiday somewhere in the late summer. This will uplift you, and give you something to look forward to, which in turn will make you feel more self-confident.

Simply remember to take things one day at a time. One day at a time, one thing at a time, and one step at a time. Do this slowly and cautiously. Take care, stay safe, and stay well.

Hypnosis is a very safe, natural and relaxing way to help you to feel calm and extremely peaceful. If you go and visit a hypnotist for help with, for example, restoring your self-confidence after the recent lockdown, or many other things such as anxiety that may have been incurred by it, you will be placed in a deeply relaxed hypnotic state. When the hypnotist knows you are comfortable and ready, such as when you are not moving, and when your breathing is steady and even, they will address your subconscious mind directly. They will give it instructions for you to follow that will help

you to achieve whatever it may be that you initially visited the hypnotist for help with. (They will discuss this with you before they start the hypnosis session). When they have given you all the instructions that you need to follow, they will gently waken you to full consciousness. May I recommend that you seriously give hypnosis a try, because you may well be pleasantly surprised with the results that you achieve. For example, you may feel extremely self-confident about everything, and you will also experience complete and total peace of mind.

Hypnosis is absolutely wonderful for increasing and restoring a person’s self-confidence, and will undoubtedly help if you have become at all anxious, fearful and worried about Covid-19. Or about a lot of other things. If you want to know how hypnosis works, or how hypnosis can help you, call us on 07904 605344. Any enquiries related to Covid-19 will be helped for free.
