Why It's so Important for Health Care Workers to Manage Stress NOW
Stress is nothing new for doctors, nurses and other health care professionals. But at this moment in time with COVID-19 virus spreading at an alarming rate, self care is especially important for those who care for us. One important aspect of self care is managing stress. As a health care professional it is no secret that stress lowers the immune system. The antidote to stress is relaxation. A body that is relaxed will also sleep better, think better and make better decisions.
Hypnotherapy is the Perfect Antidote to Stress
Years of research show that the profound relaxation that occurs during self-hypnosis reduces stress and boosts the immune system. By taking a few minutes a day and listening to the download you'll be more relaxed from the very first time you listen. The audio program that you can download on this page will help you to reduce stress and sleep better. You can listen as you go to sleep or any other time during the day. A good practice is to listen to a session during the day and again as you drift off to sleep.
How does it feel?
This hypnosis audio will guide you to a peaceful, meditative state. It's feels similar to when you're daydreaming and the world falls away. You're somewhere between being awake and fast asleep. In this state, your brain is really receptive to new ideas.
Once you are fully relaxed, you will hear suggestions that help you to deal with everyday issues better and with more relaxed focus.
Neuroscientists believe that hypnosis is the quickest and easiest way to make changes to your thought processes, because during hypnosis the mind is most adaptable to change.
At the end of the session you will wake up feeling positive, calm and relaxed and much more able to cope.
