Stress - Are you struggling with the effects of an overloaded way of life?

Proclaiming that you are stressed isn't being a drama queen.  No one is impervious to the stresses and strains involved in everyday life.  The world has become busier and we are all victims of a stressed, hectic machine rolling us through education and right into the big bad world.  For those who are in higher management, there are the pressures of the organization itself.  For anybody who is lower down the pecking order, there are the pressures of management.  If you work from home running your own business you sink or swim by your own endeavours.  Even if you don't work outside the home, there may be other factors contributing to rising stress levels in your life - health factors, babies and young children, teenagers, family etc.  Only a few individuals are able to cope with this by changing their lifestyle itself.  


When we are stressed the following happens:

  • Blood pressure rises
  • Breathing becomes more rapid
  • Digestive system slows down
  • Heart rate (pulse) rises
  • Immune system goes down
  • Muscles become tense
  • We do not sleep (heightened state of alertness)


Hypnotherapy treatments are very effective at helping people cope with the stresses that they have to handle in their daily lives.


It is worth considering how stress could start to affect you physically if not treated.  If you suffer from a racing heartbeat, shortness of breath, a dry mouth, butterflies in stomach or insomnia, you could be stressed or overly anxious.  Physical symptoms of stress and anxiety include inner tension, high blood pressure, there may be increased risk of heart attack, agitation, irrational dread that something catastrophic is going to happen and even phobias, see (Medicine News Today) for more details.


These are just some of the physical manifestations of untreated stress.  The mental strain may have just as detrimental an effect on your daily life.  It may affect your relationships both at home and at work.  You should seek advice if you identify with any of these symptoms.  


There is so much going on in all of our lives, why not try hypnotherapy to help you cope with stress? Whatever your needs or challenges there are a variety of hypnotic approaches to help you.  By working with the conscious and subconscious, hypnosis can help an individual to discover the root of the problem and more importantly quickly learn how to cope with the problem.


Why not invest in making a permanent change in the way you think and feel by finding out how hypnotherapy can help you, instead of treating yourself to that extra glass of wine or that bar of chocolate or that packet of cigarettes?


Hypnotherapy has absolutely no negative side effects and can be taken with you and used whenever you feel the need, in fact the more you practise hypnosis the more effective it will become  – no repeat prescriptions required, it will always be there no matter where you are or what time of the day or night it is.
