Social Media Addiction Hypnosis
Social media is a tool which has made great advances in terms of global connectivity and communication. It has had a dramatic impact on a variety of traditional practices, such as how we read the news, providing us with a way to connect with each other in an instant and more accessible way.
Many people are also attracted by the concept that most social media site memberships are free, and therefore the impact it has had on world news, an individual’s anonymous voice, and communication between friends and family seems even more beneficial.
As it is celebrated as such an incredible online platform, most social media sites have further been synergised with communication devices such as smartphones, which means it is accessible anywhere. It is unavoidable — you do not need to own a computer or find a café with wifi to stay constantly connected on the go.
So, what happens when social media begins to pervade our personal lives at every waking moment? What happens when it starts to have a negative effect on your interactions and connections with people in real-time situations? What if you start to create an online persona or life separate from who you actually are?
These issues and more can arise in social media addiction. It may feel like a compulsion — a constant desire or need to update a blog, check a website, or reply to a message, even if you are supposed to be working in your office, meeting friends or finishing a basic task such as cooking a meal or taking a bath. This typically constitutes an impairment of your normal healthy functioning and indicates that your use of social media has become a problem, rather than an enhancement to your life.
Do you find yourself:
- Mindlessly searching for new social media activities
- Adding people who you don’t even know
- Recording your every move on a blog post, no matter how insignificant
- Distracted by social media sites when you should be working, socialising or enjoying other activities
- Taking pleasure in pretending to be a different person on the internet
These are indicators of an excessive dependency on social media, and you may want help to regulate your usage and prevent it from taking over your life. It is only then that you will be able to control your compulsion and regain a fulfilling quality of life as an individual. When social media addiction begins to overwhelm an individual they may find themselves anxious and stressed when they cannot get online, exhausted after excessive hours spent on websites, and unable to have normal, face-to-face interactions beyond the computer screen. Social media may become an escape for those who feel unhappy and dissatisfied with their personal life, as they obtain approval from other members after updating their blog or status, or excitement when they create an impressive online alter ego.
Hypnosis for social media addiction can help you to take back control of these behaviours. By identifying why you experience the urge to use social media in this manner our Advanced Hypnosis London hypnotherapists work with you to create a personalised treatment plan that effectively addresses the psychological root of your social media addiction. Working with the subconscious mind hypnotherapy is able to make essential changes to the way you perceive social media, helping you to overcome dependencies and allowing you to make positive modifications to your behaviour and relationship with these online activities.
