Internet Addiction Hypnosis
More people than ever are now using the internet in establishing and providing an instant means of entertainment, communication, consumption, knowledge and connection.
It is difficult to even imagine modern technology and life without mentioning the enormous effect that the internet has had on our everyday lives in the decades since its creation and propagation across the globe. Some people use it as a daily, primary resource for a variety of different functions, tasks and information.
The internet has created opportunity for learning and many people now rely on the internet to help them perform at their job because it has the ability to support and organise a variety of daily activities.
As it is such a recent phenomenon internet addiction is not currently recognised as an official clinical disorder, mostly because it is hard to gauge how much usage is too much, when it is so relevant to contemporary society. However, some people may feel they need to reduce their usage of the internet, and computers in general, because it has become a serious compulsion, believing they are unable to control their actions.
Spending hours and hours a day at a computer poses a variety of health risks, with excessive usage interfering with your daily routine and life—even basic human needs such as eating, sleeping or bathing may be neglected as you lose track of time, engrossed in online activity. If this obsession continues, you could suffer from:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Frequent headaches
- Sleep problems such as insomnia
- Neck and shoulder pain
- Neglecting personal responsibilities
- Avoiding social situations or work commitments
If you are choosing to spend time on the computer instead of spending it with family, socialising or participating in activities you previously enjoyed, you may have an unhealthy relationship with the internet. Choosing to seek treatment for internet addiction will allow you to take back control of your life, allowing you to rediscover the world beyond the computer screen.

It can provide you with the tools to control your addiction and manage your time more effectively elsewhere.
