Relaxation is a very important part of our mental health. Anxiety & Stress are actually a part of the natural functioning of the brain. They remind us that we need to pay urgent attention to something. Not only would we be very dull people if we did not pay attention to what was going on around us, but also our early ancestors would not have lasted long out in the wild!
Unfortunately in modern life (where you are not likely to be eaten by wild animals), your brain still reacts in a similar way to other undesirable events. For example, that letter from the bank, the deadline, the overdraft, and all the other general stresses of modern day life. Worse still, even your imagination can trigger stress and anxiety.
The picture gets worse again when you realise that anxiety and stress create the very negative thinking or speculation that gives rise to them, potentially sending you into a downward spiral of negativity and anxiety.
Letting go of your stresses and anxieties even for a short period can significantly support your ability to cope with the every day stresses and strains of life. You may already do this through becoming engrossed in a pleasurable activity, perhaps walking, exercise, reading or watching a favourite TV programme.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can be a powerful way of teaching you how to get the stress relief and relaxation you need to stay mentally healthy. If you find yourself working under significant stress for most of the week, a regular session of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help you to achieve the rest & relaxation you need to face the busy modern world with renewed energy and zest.
