I have mentioned on this blog several times that I have gained much of my experience by reading and practicing. This year I have flirted with gaining more knowledge. One is nutrition and the other is sports psychology that I find very interesting. In college I was required as part of one of my courses in graphic design to participate in Creative Visualization. This is not a new concept and is taught by many coaches as the concept of self-fulfilling prophecies. Religions for years have also covered the same concepts, as what you put out in the universe will come back to you. OK I know this is all starting to sound very New Age.
One of my favorite regular blogs is called “Tool Box” and is authored by Josh Horowitz on the excellent web site PezCyclingNews.com. Today’s Tool Box post by Josh covers Self-Hypnosis. Josh has several CDs and MP3s that cover topics ranging from quitting smoking and athlete performance. I have listened to many of the samples and I am intrigued. I myself have tried several relaxation tapes like this after I was involved in a car accident when I was a teen to alleviate some of the symptoms I was having with a bad case of whiplash. It helped get me to sleep with out focusing on the pain. It was ultimately a doctor’s care that fixed my whiplash issues however I did gain confidence in self-hypnosis treatments.
