What download should I use to help me focus calmly on a business task?

I've had good results with Hypnosis Downloads recordings. I've stopped smoking, for example.

What download would you recommend for my current problem? I have one business task, very important, that makes my brain shut down to think about and makes me physically ill – stomachaches, for example!

I want to think clearly and unemotionally about this task and I want to stop avoiding it! What download would you recommend?

Hi Jae and thank you for your question.

Firstly, it's great to hear you've had success with our Hypnosis Downloads sessions and you've stopped smoking.

What you describe here, the brain shutting down and feeling ill, amounts to what we call an 'emotional hijacking', which happens when an overload of emotion inhibits clear thought. The reason that happens is that in a real physical threat situation, thought needs to become simplified (run or fight?) and the threatened individual becomes primarily a physical machine, not a thinking individual – hence the rapid breathing, quickened pulse, and feelings of the need to be sick (to potentially put off a predator from eating us!). All useful, even life-saving responses when confronted with a saber-toothed tiger, perhaps, but not in a business context!

Your objective, calm, and rational mind – the prefrontal lobes of the brain – need to take charge with this kind of task, not the unruly but powerful emotional part meant for muscular survival.

But how do you do this? Well, I suggest you listen to 'Be More Objective' and possibly 'Fear of Work'. Also, 'Do It Now' will help you get going on that project.

All the best,
