Reducing stress

Reducing Stress with Hypnosis

Today is “Bring your dog to work day” and there have been many studies that show how interacting with an animal is effective in reducing stress and anxiety.

Playing with an animal or petting an animal can decrease the levels of the stress hormone cortisol whilst increasing the levels of the ‘feel good’ hormone, oxytocin. Reducing stress levels stress can also have a beneficial effect on physical health. A 2001 study found pet-owning patients with high blood pressure were able to keep their blood pressure lower during periods of mental stress than those patients without pets.

If pet ownership is not possible, an alternative way of reducing stress is using with hypnotherapy. With hypnotherapy, you can learn to cope with stress in a different way through relaxation.

Help Reduce Stress

Identifying the cause of your stress is the first step to managing your stress levels to help reduce stress whether it’s caused by work pressure or other issues.

When you’re feeling the pressure and feeling stressed out, it can be tempting to turn to something unhealthy to help you cope to help reduce stress, such as smoking or drinking alcohol.

What you can do to help reduce stress:

Being active

Introducing exercise into your routine is a good way clear your thoughts, allowing you to process your thoughts more calmly.

Take control

Being passive will not help reduce stress, taking control is empowering and enables you to find a solution that meets your needs.

Connect with people

Spending time with friends, relaxing and laughing is an enjoyable way to relieve stress. Reconnect with your friend ‘support’ network.

Have some ‘me time’

Working long hours can mean that we don’t spend our time doing the the things we really enjoy, make time for yourself to enjoy quality ‘me time’.

Avoid unhealthy habits

Avoid relying upon on alcohol, smoking and caffeine as coping strategies. In the short term, these are temporary ‘crutches’ which will not resolve your issues and may create new ones.

Work smarter, not harder

Prioritising your work, concentrating on the tasks that will make a real impact is one way of working smarter.

Accept the things you can’t change

Sometimes we can’t change a difficult situation that we may be in, instead try to focus and concentrate on the things that you do have control over.

Take time to relax

When we’re feeling the pressure, it can be difficult to switch off and to relax. With hypnosis, you can relax and let go. If you feeling the pressure of stress and need help to relax, contact Jill to make an appointment to help reduce stress with hypnotherapy.

Dental Phobia Help

Today is the last day of National Smile Month, the UK’s largest and longest-running oral health campaign but is a dental phobia stopping you from smiling?

National Smile Month promoted three key messages, helping to promote routines that develop and maintain a healthy mouth. Three things you can do to keep your mouth and smile healthy are:

  • Brush your teeth in the morning and last thing at night with a fluoride toothpaste.
  • Reduce your consumption of sugary foods and drinks.
  • Regular dental check ups with your dentist.

National Smile Month’s aim is to improve the oral health of the UK.

If you’re one of the many people with a dental phobia, attending the dentist regularly may be something that you avoid, even when you need treatment from your dentist. A fear of the dentist or fear of dental treatment could be preventing you from having your regular dental checks which could result in dental problems being untreated and over time worsening.

There is help available to help you overcome your dental phobia, hypnotherapy can help you to overcome your fear of the dentist and enable you to attend your dental check ups and cope with dental treatment.

Overcome your fear of the dentist with hypnosis and start smiling, contact West Yorkshire hypnotherapist, Jill Wilson to make an appointment to reclaim your smile.

shed the belly fat

Shed the Belly Fat – Men’s Health Week

This week marks the start of Men’s Health Week 2017, running from 12-18 June and the focus for this year is to shed the belly fat.

Deposits of fat in the belly are bad for your health and it is men who are more likely to have it.

Belly fat lurks not just beneath the surface of the skin but gets deep within the abdominal cavity and surrounds your vital organs and this is called visceral fat. Visceral fat is stored around a number of important internal organs such as the liver, pancreas and intestines. Visceral fat can also affect how our hormones function and storing higher amounts of visceral fat in the abdomen is associated with increased serious risks of a number of health problems such as Type 2 diabetes.

A large amount of belly fat, irrespective of your overall weight, increases your risk of:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Insulin resistance and Type 2 diabetes
  • Colorectal cancer
  • Sleep apnoea
  • High blood pressure

As we get older, we might have fallen into bad habits, from getting little or no exercise to eating convenience foods, drinking carbonated sugary drinks, all of which can contribute to an excess of belly fat. If you want to take action and make positive changes and shed the belly fat, hypnosis can help you to change old unhelpful behaviours and habits.

Contact West Yorkshire hypnotherapist Jill to book your appointment and shed the belly fat.

Diabetes Week began yesterday and this year the emphasis is know diabetes, fight diabetes and being overweight can increase your risk of Type 2 diabetes and you may need weight loss help with hypnosis.

Each day 65 people die early from diabetes and many hundreds more will have to deal with life-changing complications which could have been avoided or delayed with action.

You are at a higher risk of Type 2 diabetes if you are overweight, especially if you are carrying extra weight around your middle.

Your risk also increases with age and you are at a higher risk you are white and over 40 or if you are African-Caribbean, Black African, or South Asian over 25.

Eating a healthy balanced diet and losing weight can help to reduce the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. Hypnotherapy can offer weight loss help for people wanting to lose weight and become more active, both of which reduces your risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

If you need weigh loss help, hypnotherapy can help you to change how you eat and what you eat. Regain control of your eating and eat a healthy well balanced diet to reduce your risk of Type 2 diabetes. Often, we gain weight gradually over time and fall into unhelpful eating habits and patterns. If you want to change, you can make the change with hypnosis.
