I’ve been studying and teaching stress relief for about 40 years now. When used, mindfulness hypnosis stress relief can help you manage even the most stressful times. In my Bainbridge hypnosis, Seattle hypnosis and online via Skype, I teach almost all clients some quick, easy to use and powerful stress reduction tools that help you to be mindful and to be in the present moment. You to can learn hypnosis stress management and breathe easier throughout your day. You don’t have to carry your burdens throughout your day …. you can let them go.
Put the Glass Down
A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: “How heavy is this glass of water?”
Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.
She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.” She continued, “The stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed – incapable of doing anything.”
It’s important to remember to let go of your stresses. As early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don’t carry them through the evening and into the night. Remember to put the glass down!
You may have seen this on Facebook on Monday, but I thought that is was so profound and so important that it is worth repeating following up from my post yesterday. How you respond to the stressors in your life is a choice that you make. You can either play the stresses over and over in your mind and be in “fight or flight” which will weaken your immune system or you can manage stress. To control stress:
- Use the Stress Reduction Response and breathe deeply.
- Use self hypnosis and be in control of your thoughts, emotions and behavior.
- Eat whole grains, vegetables and fruit – foods that make you healthy.
- Drink water and stay hydrated. (Here’s where you pick up the glass).
- Move: Exercise is one of the best habits you can adopt that will help you avoid depression and stay emotionally balanced. It doesn’t matter what kind of exercise you do. What’s important is to be active and use your joints and muscles on a regular basis.
Breathe deeply and let go.
