The Cost of Stress
The cost of stress is huge. In the United States, employee turnover… lower productivity… absenteeism… workers compensation and medical insurance; costs industry and employers over $300 billion a year. The frustrating economy… financial burdens… conflicts in our personal relationships at home and work, pressures from deadlines and overwhelming workloads, have become a serious problem.
Recent polls show that 42% of adults and 52% of teenagers feel that stress is impacting their health and happiness Stress is our body’s natural and normal response to a situation that your mind perceives as a threat. When our lives are balanced and calm, the stress response protects us, so that should a life threatening event occur, our nervous system will release adrenaline and cortisol into the bloodstream. This makes our heart beat faster…muscles tighten… Blood pressure to rise and breathing to quicken.
Flight or Fight
This normal stress reaction, is often called the flight or fight response. This helps us to either fight off an attacker… runaway or freeze in place. If this mental and physical state is sustained over time, it can cause great harm to our immune system, hurt mental and physical health and cause disease. A prolonged state of extreme nervousness and tension has been determined to contribute to a long list of illnesses.
Stress has been linked to cancer, high blood pressure, obesity and immune system disorders, to name a few. When not addressed and managed properly, stress can lead to depression and serious anxiety disorders. It can hurt personal performance and relationships. The few hours that you will invest in learning this techmique can DRAMATICALLY IMPROVE and SAVE YOUR LIFE![/toggle]
[toggle title=”Using Relaxation Techniques For Stress Reduction” open=”no”]It’s long been accepted that the practice of relaxation techniques can help counteract the problems brought on by stress and anxiety. Back in the 60s and 70s, considerable research was conducted at Harvard Medical School and the University of California, to find out how the practice of meditation could improve a persons physical and emotional states.
Many relaxation techniques were developed using:
- Regulated deep breathing
- Progressive relaxation techniqus
- Methods of mental focus that are used in the practice of meditation
I first, became aware of this research, back in the early 90s, while working on developing a new stress relief program.
There was a time when I practiced both meditation, and, taught classes in how to meditate. I knew from this experience that learning how to meditate can be very challenging for many people. It can be even more difficult if you’re extremely stressed when you’re trying to do it.
I came to realize that one of the deepest states of relaxation can be achieved through the use of hypnosis and hypnotherapy.
The process of putting oneself into a hypnotic state is called self-hypnosis. I also knew from experience, that the best way to learn how to perform self hypnosis, is while you’re actually in a deep state of hypnosis.[/toggle]
[toggle title=”Overview & Purpose Of The InstaCalm Technique” open=”no”]The InstaCalm Relaxation Techique is a method in self hypnosis, that quickly achieves a very relaxed state of the mind and body, for a pre-determined length of time. I taught this technique to hundreds of my client/patients, one-on-one, in my office over many years. This at-home, training course makes it much more convienient to learn.
The objectives of the technique are:
- To Instantly Reduce Stress by helping the brain switch from the sympathetic nervous system (stress response) to the parasympathetic nervous system (relaxation response).
- Help the individual sustain a relaxed state by frequently performing the technique for one minute intervals throughout the day. This can be useful in alleviating severe chronic stress & anxiety disorders, such as, Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD).
This technique uses cognitive hypnotherapy recordings to help condition the mind with automatic stress coping strategies. It can be effective to help manage stress and anxiety during difficult and overwhelming situations.
