Is your stress under control?
14th July, 2014
We should all have a certain amount of stress in our lives. It creates boundaries. If your boss said come in whenever you like, or did not give you deadlines to work to, nothing would get done.
When we were cave men/women and were faced with a grizzly bear, you had to make a snap decision. Flight, fight or freeze. This means that the stress hormone cortisol floods your body with adrenaline, getting you ready to either run away, fight the bear for food, or be frozen by fear.
We had different demands today. What if that “grizzly bear” is your boss making unreasonable demands? You can take flight and leave your job, but where will you go? You can’t possibly fight him, and wrestle him in the office, so you freeze. Grit your teeth; clench your fists, maybe even cry.
Perhaps you have a teenager that has suddenly turned into a person you know longer know let alone love overnight. Or an ill parent who is making demands on your time. Perhaps the care you are giving them makes you have that realisation that they have become the child and you the parent.
Maybe you are dealing with illness, pain. It can be very frustrating when control is taking away from you with visits to the hospital and medications to take. Sometimes you can’t hear what the doctor is saying to you because you are so frozen in fear.
Hypnotherapy can help you with stress, anxiety or depression. It creates a safe environment for you, where you are the one back in control of your life. You control your own thoughts, nobody else. But sometimes our own thoughts run away with us. Hypnotherapy builds your confidence, controls pain and puts you in control of your mind. How good would that feel?
