Stop The World, I Want To Get Off is not only the name of a 1961 play, but also describes how many people feel about their lives these days. Whether you are exhausted from multitasking in every area of your life, overwhelmed by all you have to do and how quickly you need to do it, or are a prisoner to your own self expectations, the anxiety and stress you feel could be setting you up for very real illness and physical effects. Even if you think you're managing to balance it all, your stress may manifest itself in the form of sleepless nights, frustration, anger, addiction, weight gain, and many other unproductive and unhealthy consequences.
A Better Way To Cope
To cope with these circumstances and side effects, many reach for the pills to seek relief, but there is a better way for anxiety and stress relief naturally through hypnosis. Since hypnosis brings you into a focused state of relaxation, this approach gives you the perfect toolkit to help you manage anxiety, look at life differently, and even change your response to stress. You can't stop the world from spinning out of control, but you can learn techniques to prevent yourself from becoming dizzy!
How Hypnosis For Anxiety And Stress Works
When you're in a hypnotic state, you are more suggestible. While you won't do anything against your will or out of character, you are in a perfect position to use techniques available with hypnosis training to make life's challenges more manageable. Stress is all in how you look at your challenges and how your emotions react to the situations in your life. Hypnosis is a completely different approach to both.
Anxiety and stress cannot coexist with calmness and relaxation. So once you learn ways to center yourself and respond differently to the frenetic pace around you, you could be at peace rather than continually feel agitated and overwhelmed.
Hypnosis Changes How You React To Stress
Relaxing into an hypnotic state, or 'trance' for anxiety and stress will not only change your outlook, but could easily change your physiology as well. Often people report blood pressure and pulse rate dropping when they relax, and the deep breathing used in session can increase oxygen flow. Where you might have snapped at coworkers or felt alienated from life before, after hypnosis your outlook may seem changed so you prefer feeling like a person who is friendly and able to laugh at yourself. You'll learn to maximize your downtime and mentally escape for a few moments to a place of peace and tranquility when things are hectic. People often report sleeping better as well.
Will Hypnosis Work For You?
As with all hypnosis, the effectiveness entirely depends on you wanting to be hypnotized and wanting whatever you're being hypnotized to do. So you may want to go into trance and learn how to change how you feel, but if you truly like eating chocolate donuts and truly want to keep eating them, no amount of hypnosis can 'make' you do anything. All hypnosis is 'self hypnosis' - meaning hypnosis isn't something 'done to you' - it's something you do. The hypnotist's job is to teach or train you how to use those relaxation and focus skills to change your behavior.
With the proper screening, a hypnotist can tell up front whether you are a good candidate for something like hypnosis for anxiety and stress, and whether they can take you as a person. When selecting a professional, be sure to ask about what results YOU can expect given YOUR particular situation and be honest with the hypnotist about whether you can follow directions and do as you're told.
If you've tried other relief methods with no success, imagine what hypnosis for anxiety and stress could do.
