Hypnotherapy for stress – Do you want to manage stress effectively?
Stress is both a natural and normal reaction in certain situations. Furthermore, stress is often a motivator in everyday life, such as in the work place, in the sporting arena and in numerous other competitive conditions.
Technically speaking it is arguable there is no such thing as a stressful situation, they are just situations. Every individual has a choice concerning how they respond to a situation. Hypnotherapy for stress helps you to choose more appropriately.
While some people would become very stressed by an event, such as meeting a deadline, others would view it with confidence and excitement.
Stress can come about when an individual has numerous pressures that gradually wear down the ability to cope and deal with them effectively. Consequently, this can leave you feeling physically and mentally exhausted.
Stress can aggravate the following illnesses: hypertension, insomnia, diabetes, herpes, multiple sclerosis, etc. Besides, stress that continues for long periods of time can lead to: poor concentration, irritability, anger and poor judgement.
Stress leads to marriage breakups, family fights, road rage, suicides and violence.
The main causes of stress that arise due to the external environment were studied by Thomas H. Holmes and Richard H. Rahe, from the University of Washington. In 1967 they conducted a study on the connection between certain important life events and the illnesses. As a part of that study they also compiled a list of main reasons of stress in the society.
At the time the study was conducted there were 55 triggers of stress. The list was reviewed in 2006 and that list now contains 63 main causes of stress.
From the studies conducted by Holmes and Rahe and also other studies that have been conducted from time to time, it seems that the following are the biggest causes of present day stress levels in modern societies:
Financial difficulties have become the number one cause of stress in recent years. Due to a lack of money, you and your family are no longer able to do what you want to. Debts are increasing, credit card payments, outstanding mortgage instalments, escalating expenditure on health concerns, the increasing cost of education. The topic of personal finance is at the top of the list of stressors.
Stress in the work environment is increasingly another main factor that causes stress. You may be concerned about your next promotion. You may be experiencing bullying or negative behaviour from your manager. You might not be realising your hard-earned career goals; you might be worried due to office politics. You might be anxious about major changes that are occurring in your workplace or, you may be under stress at the prospect of losing your job.
The attitude of relatives, arguments with your children or spouse, changes as a consequence of the requirements of your job, a family member becoming ill, providing long term care for a loved one, parents moving in, elder children moving out or back in, are all chief causes of stress.
Hypertension, heart disease, problems with eye sight, affect many individuals leading to a major source of stress for them. Preserving good health, reducing weight, increasing weight, concerns over food intake, making the right food choices and getting enough exercise as well as being able to live and lead a healthy life-style. All these and several more are the main sources of stress due to health and well-being concerns.
Besides the previous concerns mentioned afore, there are also the aggravations and frustrations that you experience and encounter in your daily life which subsequently develop into a principal source of stress for you. Difficulties with commuting to the workplace, work-life balance challenges, parent teacher meetings at children’s schools, workload pressures, insufficient sleep, little or no time to relax, no time available to discuss various niggling problems, a feeling of overwhelm – who is not mindful of these pressures and tensions in our lives? You contest them each and every day.
Too much stress can cause DISTRESS.
Confronted with too much stress over an extended period of time, the body can become exhausted and ill. Some illnesses related with prolonged stress are high blood pressure, heart disease, migraines, allergies, etc as well as causing other problems such as anxiety and depression.
Furthermore, the symptoms of stress are sometimes deceptive and invisible, until abruptly one day you suddenly feel overwhelmed by everything in your life.
Too much stress can also manifest itself in the form of the following:
- A feeling of being overwhelmed
- Aggressive behaviour
- Muscle tension
- Unable to relax
- Poor appetite
- Excessive drinking
- Excessive eating
- Excessive smoking
- Agitation at minor things
- Snapping at loved ones
- Always in a state of being rushed
