Is Stress Effecting Your Happiness?

Wish You Could Stop Stressing Out?

Stress is a common experience that can affect anyone at any point in their life. It is difficult to estimate how many people suffer from stress, as stress can manifest in many different ways and can be caused by various factors, such as work, relationships, financial issues, and health problems.

That being said, stress is a prevalent issue in modern society. According to the American Psychological Association’s 2021 Stress in America survey, 78% of adults in the United States reported experiencing at least one symptom of stress in the past year, with the most common sources of stress being personal finances, work, and the pandemic. In addition, the survey found that young adults (ages 18-24) and parents experienced higher stress levels than other age groups.

It’s important to note that while stress is a common experience, it can have negative impacts on mental and physical health if left untreated.

One of the ways that hypnosis can be beneficial for reducing stress and anxiety is by helping to change negative thought patterns. When a person is in a state of hypnosis, they are more receptive to suggestions, and the hypnotist can guide the patient to replace negative thoughts with more positive and empowering ones.

Hypnosis can also be helpful for reducing physical tension and promoting relaxation. In a hypnotic state, a person’s heart rate and breathing slow down, and their muscles relax, which can help to alleviate the physical symptoms of stress and anxiety.

Hypnosis has been shown to potentially lower cortisol levels, which are often elevated in people who experience chronic stress and anxiety. Cortisol is a hormone produced by the adrenal gland in response to stress, and chronically elevated cortisol levels can have negative effects on the body and mind.

Research studies have found that hypnosis can lead to a decrease in cortisol levels. For example, a study published in the International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis found that hypnosis was effective in reducing cortisol levels in a group of healthy volunteers. Another study published in the journal Psychoneuroendocrinology found that hypnosis was effective in reducing cortisol levels in patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Hypnosis can be an effective tool for reducing stress and anxiety. During a hypnosis session, Hillary Evans, a trained Clinical Hypnotherapist, will help guide the client into a relaxed state of mind and suggest positive and calming thoughts or imagery. While hypnosis can be a safe and effective tool for reducing stress and anxiety, it may not be appropriate for everyone, and should not be used as a substitute for medical treatment or therapy.
