Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs your mental and physical equilibrium. A stressful event can trigger a rising of hormones such as adrenaline or cortisol, caused by the natural fight-or-flight response. A minor stress can keep you on your toes or even make you more productive and focused. However, a prolonged chronic stress can cause detrimental effects on your health, both mind and body.
If you live in a big city, such as New York, then you probably know how stressful life can be, working long hours, travelling long distances, dealing with stressful situations at work or home. The more involved you are in your busy life, the more stressors will continue to surmount all around.
What makes a huge difference is your reaction to your environment and stress.
Every person’s life situation and story is unique. Stressors and reactions to them vary from person to person. Your stress may be coming from work and your boss, it can be from the certain family members, it can be your employees or a project that you have to finish.
The best way to solve unpleasant feelings and stress caused by your environment is to regain your personal balance and inner peace. You can achieve that through regular meditation practice or self-hypnosis. When you feel calm, relaxed, collected and grounded – you can deal with almost any stress and negativity.
Regular Meditation practice or self-hypnosis are powerful tools to help you keep your mental balance. When you meditate regularly, your body naturally releases endorphins, chemicals responsible for a happy mood.
There are four known brain waves cycles, which measure the ionic flow within the neurons in the brain.These brain wave cycles are are Beta, Alpha, Theta, Delta. Alpha and Theta are the brain waves cycles that happen during meditation and deep relaxation. Mental states with alpha or theta brain wave activity are generally very positive states of mind. You feel calm and relaxed. It becomes easier to think, access memories, find solutions to problems and make better wiser decisions. You become more resourceful and begin to see a better and bigger picture of your life situations. During such states your mind is no longer cluttered with negative thoughts, you are detached from doubts, judgments or any fear-based emotions.
Regular exercise is a wonderful way to keep a physical balance and health. When you exercise regularly your body also releases endorphins, making you feel more energetic physically and over-all excited.
When I work with my clients on stress related issues, I use hypnosis to help them gain their inner equilibrium through deep mental relaxation. I teach them relaxation and self-hypnosis techniques. I also, help my clients come up with specific positive affirmations to help them deal with their unique challenging life situations and stressors.Suggestions for regular exercise, eating healthy and better sleep are also given to a client for the over-all well being and health.
