After a while, you may be able to do a form of self-hypnosis in a busy place. Waiting at the airport is a good time to do self-hypnosis. So is the actual flight. While you are learning, practice in a quiet place.
Set aside 10 or 15 minutes a day to practice self-hypnosis. You can do this any time that is convenient, but it's best not to do it at bedtime or you may fall asleep before you finish.
Find a place where you can be quiet and undisturbed. You should be warm and confortable, but not too hot and not in a draft. Many people like to lie down for their self-hypnosis sessions, but you can do it sitting in a chair if you prefer. It's best not to practice within an hour after eating. You can do anything you want after your self-hypnosis session.
Ask your family not to disturb you, unless one of them is practicing with you. Keep the pets out, unless you are sure they will spend the time napping. Unplug the phone, and turn off the cell. You may not be able to avoid all traffic noise, but do the best you can.
Loosen any tight clothing and made yourself comfortable. You may want to take off your shoes, especially if you are lying down. You can sit in a chair or on a comfortable bench. Don't sit on the bed or on a very soft sofa. You don't have to sit on the floor or in a lotus position, unless that is relaxing for you. Put your feet flat on the floor if you are in a chair. Put your hands in your lap, or next to you if you are lying down.
