Are you stressed out?
Do you find yourself putting off what you hate to do, but do you also put off what you love to do?
If you’re like most folks, you’ve been so busy building the life you thought you wanted that you’ve become so stressed out and you’ve stopped living life at all.
Have financial concerns caused you to put off the life you deserve?
Are you putting off learning effective ways to manage your stress because recession and negative media has you super-stressed out and afraid to make a move?
As you are scanning each line in this article, you’ll discover that learning how to manage stress is a very common problem.
But before we go one step further, let me explain exactly what stress really is so you can recognize the signs in your body.
Listen to me very carefully now…
In stressful situations – whether the stress hits you like a ton of bricks physically, intellectually, emotionally, or spiritually – your body releases a hormone called cortisol.
It’s produced by the adrenal glands, which lie on top of the kidneys, and it helps you to adapt to stressful situations.
Cortisol is often referred to as the “stress hormone.”
And when you’re repeatedly exposed to excessive demands, the brain sends a message to the adrenal glands to increase cortisol secretion.
The body responds by providing a surge in energy, while increasing your mental alertness and blood pressure.
The result? That’s where the “fight or flight” response fits in.
Let me emphasize one thing… we all have different concepts of what stress is.
For some it may be the result of trying to do too much, for too many people, in too little time, in an environment that is too hard to deal with.
When you let go of trying to control an inflexible environment and all the people in it, you stop struggling with the pain of unrealistic expectations.
You let go of stress.
We can all relate to this.
However the secret of stress management is grasping the concept that you have NO control over the stressors or demands made upon you.
You do have 100 percent control over your response.
That’s where the management of stress must start.
And you can learn to take control over your response. You can breathe easy and remind yourself that you are in control.
Hypnotherapy also helps.
In surprisingly effective ways.
You see it’s your subconscious mind that takes over in times of stress and anxiety. Hypnotherapy allows us to talk to that part of your mind, so we can tell it what changes it needs to make. It’s a bit like you’re erasing old negative thought patterns that no longer serve you, and are replacing them with a sense of self assurance and self-control that you can experience in any situations in your life.
Hypnotherapy can help you do anything from easily manage the symptoms of stress and anxiety to clearing it up completely.
