“There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth. Not going all the way and not starting.” Siddhartha Gautama (on procrastination)
Frequently a client is interested in neurofeedback to help with a specific issue, such as anxiety Frequently, after the first session, they notice changes. A client may tell me that they’ve slept well for the first time in years. The next session they may mention that they’ve procrastinated about starting (or completing) a project at work (or home) and all of a sudden, they’ve tackled the issue.
Change is often scary. Some people prefer to procrastinate even if that means they will continue to be miserable. Sometimes we feel safer with the known than we do about the unknown.
Some people come to neurofeedback because they are obsessed with consumption, whether it’s food, alcohol, drugs, sex or shopping. They consume too much in order to fill a void. There’s always a desire for more but this desire can affect how we feel about ourselves. It is wonderful when we notice that we no longer have the desire to eat until we feel sick or buy another article of clothing that we do not need. I love it when a client tells me that they are no longer wrestling with their demons and that they are feeling better about themselves.
Taking little risks everyday helps to instill a sense of accomplishment and that creates a sense of wellbeing and also confidence. Neurofeedback can with procrastination.
