For anyone who has tried to study for an exam, I’m sure that it’s no surprise that anxiety scrambles your brain making learning hard. Over the last 10 years it has been frightening for me as I have witnessed the level of stress and anxiety rise among students. High school and college students and even middle school and grade school students are under extreme pressure to perform well in school in preparation for acceptance to college. It is sad to me that the grade points for college admission today would have excluded me from all the colleges that did accept me 45 years ago. The levels of stress, anxiety and depression in our children truly is frightening.
The good news is that the students that I meet in my office and online all report to me that they benefit from hypnosis for anxiety and hypnosis for academic performance. What’s fun for me is that students are natural at hypnosis and easy learn self-hypnosis for stress management and academic performance hypnosis.
How anxiety scrambles your brain and makes it hard to learn
The Guardian, Juliet Rix: In someone with an anxiety problem, it seems, the brain is making incorrect decisions about what to fear and the prefrontal cortex fails to suppress the amygdala, putting the body into fight or flight mode.
In this state, levels of the hormone adrenaline rise and the sympathetic nervous system – which controls automatic activities (like breathing) rather than conscious action – takes over. The heart rate rises, breathing speeds up and blood is diverted to the limbs, blood pressure and body temperature increase, and you may start to sweat.
This is clearly not a state conducive to learning or concentrating in a seminar, says clinical psychologist Dr Angharad Rudkin. “Even if you manage to take in what is being said, the information is likely to bounce around [in your brain], not being processed properly or stored in your long-term memory.”
Winter break is almost here and for many that means that they are already cramming for finals and are getting projects completed before the semester ends. Many are experiencing lots of stress and anxiety. They often tell me about all the noisy chatter in their minds. You can quiet your mind with hypnosis.
Studies have shown that hypnosis can enhance your academic performance. When you relax, your mind becomes more absorbent and able to learn. Use hypnosis to maximize your ability to relax, study effectively, understand and retain the information you are learning, organize the information and communicate it back clearly. Learn self hypnosis to increase your GPA, overcome anxiety, be motivated to study and to feel more confident.
Now is the time to schedule your hypnosis session for in my office or online and get a kick start on the new year. It only makes sense to learn hypnosis now so that you can control stress and anxiety throughout your life.
