As those who have been following the 30 day hypnotic induction challenge on our YouTube channel will know, we are all for building habits by taking small steps over extended periods of time.

To be even more effective, try the technique of ‘stacking habits’. Stacking habits simply means choosing some new habit that you would like to do, and attaching it to something you already do. For example, if you want to do a daily post for your hypnosis or coaching blog, and you currently stop for a coffee on your way into the office, you could write your blog post in the coffee shop.

Of course there are several great NLP techniques to help you do this, the most obvious one perhaps being the Stacking Habits Swish. To use the Swish to install the new habit, simply follow these steps (we will use the coffee shop blog example above – modify for your own habits!):

  1. Picture the barista handing you your coffee (or whatever you see as you engage in your current habit)
  2. Send that picture off into the distance so it gets far away, small and dark
  3. Bring the picture back, but as it comes back see yourself writing the bolt post (or whatever your desired new habit is)
  4. Blank the screen
  5. Repeat

Here is a wonderful article describing the technique in detail from Courtney Carver of bemorewithless. the past few months, Ive developed a peaceful, yet energizing morning routine. You probably already practice habit stacking without even knowing it. You can probably identify little pockets of habit stacks throughout your day. Via
