There are various ways for you to battle stress. Having a healthy lifestyle, eating the right food and exercising regularly are just some of the ways you can reduce stress in your life. If, however, these methods are not enough then you can try using hypnosis as well as a supplementary technique.
You need to find yourself a quiet place where there will be the least amount of distraction. It must also be a place you will feel comfortable to stay in for a short period of time alone.
Time is important as well. Although using hypnosis to battle stress can be done on any part of the day, it is still best that you do so at a time you are certain you can ask everyone to leave you alone and isolate yourself from the rest of the world.
Positioning – Find a position where you are most comfortable. You can lie down, sit in front a cozy fire, or stand near a window. Whatever works for you best is fine. It must be a position that you can also maintain for at least five minutes and as long as half an hour.
Objective – For the next step, you need to specify a goal for yourself and for this session only. Although we know that you generally wish to get rid of stress, you need to be a little more specific than that to make your hypnosis exercise work. Once you have specified the objective for your first session, you need to make it into an affirmation.
An affirmation is a positive statement that brings an equally positive force in your life. It can make you confident, happy, and in this instance, less stressful as well. If your goal is to reduce your anger, you can turn this statement into something like I am becoming happier or calmer day by day. Avoid using any negative word, tense, or phrase. This includes but is not limited to the words no, not, and can not.
Avoiding the use of negative words are essential because these are words that your brain is not naturally inclined to focus on. As such, if you are using a statement like I am going to reduce my anger day by day, your brain might eventually forget the important verb reduce and concentrate mainly on anger which of course is not a good thing at all.
Hypnosis – Once you have determined your objective, start regulating your breathing. Breathe in and out slowly but deeply. Once you have reached a state between consciousness and unconsciousness, start focusing on your objective by repeating the phrase to yourself over and over. You can also visualize your objective if you wish, and make it as vivid as you can.
Day by day, you will see your hypnosis gradually influencing your attitude and lifestyle.
Stress is one of your most prevalent enemies today, and it is important that you do whatever you can to eliminate stress from your life. Hypnosis can help you stay relaxed and free from stress and anxiety at all times as long as you are able to execute the techniques properly. Good luck on wielding influence on your subconscious!
