4 Feel Good Hypnosis Tips to reduce stress 1 - Learn to breathe properly Incorrect breathing can alter your moods, disrupt your sleep, even interfere with you digestion! Incorrect breathing can lead to reduced oxygen intake, reducing your energy and leading to the above mentioned issues and more. In sort, causing stress both on your body and mentally. Yes the brain needs oxygen! 20% of what we take in goes to supply our brain. remembering that our brain pretty much controls everything that we do, if you don’t get sufficient oxygen then most of how our body functions will not be properly regulated. The key points are: Breathe from your diaphragm, not your chest. This slows down your breathing. If you place your hand on your chest and it moves when you are breathing then you are not breathing properly. By using your diaphragm you take long deep breaths. Breath through your nose, not your mouth. Your nose acts as a filter and cleans and conditions the air you breathe in. Breathe rhythmically, quietly and in a relaxed manner. Breathing is a rushed or panicked way can lead to hyperventilation which is not good. So be relaxed and keep a steady rhythm. 2 - Focus on the now This can be through self hypnosis or meditation or mindfulness and creates a feeling of calm and relaxation. People who are stressed or anxious are in a constant state of arousal – in a fight or flight mode and it increases anxiety. Regularly taking time out during the day centres you to being in the here and now. This in turn releases worries of past and worries of the future. It good to do it regularly and wonderful to see that many schools are now teaching children to do it as part of their daily routine. The key thing is to do it as often as you can and soon you will to it automatically, unconsciously, without thinking about it. 3 - Use imagery Visualise yourself somewhere peaceful, you ‘safe place’ it can be a real place like your favourite beach or a fictitious place like the ideal relaxing forest that you’ve never been too. Engage all your senses as you imagine it now: the sights, the smells, the sounds, the tastes and how it feels to be there. Using your imagination in this way to truly take yourself there inside your mind, your unconscious mind can not tell the difference between what is real and what is imagined which means all the benefits you get from that location, getting to unwind there, to de-stress, to just enjoy getting away to your favourite place are all gained withing your mind. 4 - Rub your lips Lightly run one or two fingers over your lips. Parasympathetic fibres are spread throughout your lips so touching them stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system. This will immediately calm your mind and body and will reduce your stress.
