Stress & Anxiety
Stress is a normal part of
everyone’s life. In small quantities,
stress can beneficial -- it can motivate you to be more productive. However, when you experience too much stress, or have a strong response to stress, it becomes harmful and it moves
into the realm of anxiety.
Anxiety is a feeling of extreme apprehension
or fear. The source of this uneasiness and discomfort
is not always recognized or known, which can add to the distress you feel. Anxiety and stress can set you up for general poor health as well as specific psychological issues. The long term raised cortisol levels come with their own set of unpleasant side effects, like immune suppression,digestion disruption, reduced sex drive and unwanted weight gain. Persistent anxiety often leads to unhealthy behaviors like overeating and abuse of alcohol or drugs
Many people find that unresolved stress
and anxiety can lead them to experience
panic attacks that can be so intense that it halts a person’s ability to function on a daily basis. Overwhelming stress and anxiety can literally stop you from living the kind of life you want to live — from being the person you want to be. That’s because uncontrolled anxiety will always override rational thought, leaving you to feel as though you
have no control in your life.
You may have noticed
that once you have started to continuously experience anxiety, your mind starts anticipating it — so much so that the initial experience becomes intensified. Unfortunately, the more you anticipate something bad happening, the more you bring on the possibility of experiencing another high anxiety situation or panic attack.
The good news is that it is possible to end panic attacks, reduce anxiety and relieve stress through hypnotherapy. By retraining the mind to think and experience things differently, you are able to function from a different place, a place where the mind and body are calm, and you feel more whole and complete. Therapeutic hypnosis helps empower you to rise above your fears, limitations and negative beliefs. It helps calm you down, create lasting peace of mind, and generate a new habit of being calm and relaxed.
