There is not a person in the world that does not experience stress. Stress is a part of our everyday life.
There is good stress and bad stress. The good stress is like waiting in the delivery room for the arrival of your new baby or the feeling that overwhelms you when you get that promotion that you have worked so hard for. There is an end to it.
Bad stress, the type that leads to so many ailments is another story.
Bad stress is when you are constantly faced with challenges and there is no relief to that stress or you are unable to relax.
In our world today we tend to take relaxation and rest for granted, few people take the time or are able to actually relax. This is leading to more stress on our bodies and our minds.
Consider the following:
- 43% of all adults suffer from the adverse effects of stress
- Stress causes headaches, heart problems, skin conditions, high blood pressure, asthma, arthritis, depression and anxiety
- 75-90% of all doctor office visits are due to stress related issues.
- OHSA has classified stress a hazard of the workplace, costing the American industry over $150 billion a year.
- Emotional disorder is often due to chronic untreated stress.
There are many ways to manage stress. The use of hypnosis for stress and anxiety has proven to be effective for many people.
A hypnotherapist can help you learn how to relax so that you reduce your stress and tension as well as anxiety. They can also teach you how to do self hypnosis so that you are able to relieve the stress whenever you need to.
Not only will hypnosis help you relieve stress at any given moment, it can also help you eliminate or at least reduce the problems that are causing you stress, the root problem.
We all are faced with stress everyday that we try to deal with, but our problems with stress may stem from something else, things that have happened to us in the past that we haven’t dealt with or let go of. These have an impact on us still and can affect issues that we face today.
Regardless of what our triggers are, it is our mind that tells our body how it will respond to those triggers. If our mind interprets a situation as being stressful it will tell our body that we are in a stressful situation and our body will react accordingly.
Your hypnotherapist can help you change the way your mind interprets situations. This helps you stay relaxed and calm and allows you to stay in control during those times when you normally are feeling stressed.
Stress is created by your thoughts and anticipation of what your mind believes will happen next. Hypnosis for stress and anxiety helps your mind perceive situations differently, which will reduce stress and make you feel better, healthier, happier.
