The word Stress is widely used, but the meaning in your life depends upon the context in which it is used. You will become over stressed whenever the demands being made on you are greater than your capacity to cope.
Stress is a natural and necessary condition. It gave our cave-man ancestors the ability to react to danger or emergency and a quick response for fight, flight or freeze. At times of stress or perceived stress, our adrenal glands, release powerful hormones into the bloodstream. These hormones, Adrenaline, Noradrenaline and Cortisol stimulate chemicals, which affect the heart and almost every organ in our body. We experience an instant mental, emotional and physical change that provides us with extra awareness, extra endurance and extra strength to cope with danger.
However, instead of using these stress hormones in emergencies, we now live at such a pace that many people activate them all the time – like when we are going to face any situation we don’t feel fully comfortable with. Speaking in public, sitting in traffic, feeling overworked or overwhelmed, coping with health concerns or debt adds to the cocktail of stress. Hormones can build up in our systems without the fast discharge into action or natural release.
This can have a dramatic impact on the quality of our lives. Stress can cause a wide range of emotional problems including issues with anger, anxiety, panic, obsessive thoughts and addiction. It can also affect us physically in relation to insomnia and the ability of our immune system to work effectively.
Hypnotherapy can help you to rapidly deal with symptoms of your stress, leaving you physically more relaxed, mentally calmer and much more confident. Whether you need to deal with specific issues or just learn how to unwind and relax. Your subconscious mind has the resources to alleviate the effects and change the pattern.
