What makes your stress worse? Your job? Money? Moving? Love or lack of it? Physical or emotional pain? Your in-laws?
How much of your stress is from today, and how much is past experiences? You probably know what I mean by this, but the answer is not always easy figure out.
It's common sense that managing and reducing stress can prevent many problems. Problems with general health, potential addiction, and more. Preventing these problems with stress management methods is much less costly and more comfortable than dealing with the results.
I know you wouldn't choose to have problems with your blood pressure, heart, or trouble sleeping. But, ignoring your stress is very close to doing just that.
Many people with high stress look to avoid the discomfort by looking for things to make them feel "better". Short term distractions like watching TV, movies, prescription medications, cigarette smoking, eating, and other addictions.
Lots of people believe prescription medication is the only choice. If there were an easy, medically studied and safe method to relieve stress, wouldn't you try it?
Yes you would, if it really worked.
You've probably watched a movie or television to relax. Does it really help? Probably most of the time you're watching it you feel relatively more relaxed. Something else to focus on and think about? But there really isn't much "thinking" going on... it just helps you make a more relaxed state of mind.
Some people achieve this same mental state using creative visualization, meditation, or prayer.
All ways to create the mental state technically known as hypnosis. Very little practice will let anyone easily and quickly achieve this nice state of mind. The same state you sometimes get while reading a book or talking on the phone.
Hypnosis is a state of mind everyone goes into several times a day. Hypnotizing yourself, on purpose, is so easy to do and is so beneficial to your stress and health in general.
There are medical clinical studies in the National Library of Medicine you can research on www.pubmed.gov.
Physical and mental stress relief of over 50% is possible in under 10 minutes. Honest.
Getting help from a well trained and reputable hypnotist or using a quality hypnosis audio at home to relieve stress is a wonderful choice. Hypnosis can more reliably help your stress, and hypnosis has no side-effects.
Please note: While hypnosis has been an approved by the American Medical Association since 1958, it does not replace conventional medicine.
