Proper relaxation is vital for your long-term health and happiness. People who feel stressed, unhappy or overworked will inevitably suffer health problems. Psychological pressures can cause weaknesses in our immune system, bringing about a tendency to catch colds and viruses. How you feel can even play a part with chronic complaints such as arthritis, rheumatism, digestive and back problems. Often, if you feel low, your body also feels weakened and this can bring about even more pain, discomfort and suffering.
There are lots of people who, for the whole day, the deepest breath they take is the huge sigh of relief, when it ends. That’s okay for some people, but is it good enough for you? Wouldn’t it be nice to get a little bit more relaxation into your life? What if, at the end of your day, you could feel a smile developing from deep within, bringing feelings of contentment and accomplishment as you mentally review your day? How good would that feel?
What happens to the body when you relax?
When you relax your body responds in a number of ways, such as:
- Your breathing becomes deeper and slower.
- Your heart rate decreases and slows down.
- The blood flow to the extremities increases.
- Your hormones become more balanced.
- Your overall metabolism is slowed down.
These elements of relaxation are beneficial for both your physical health and your mental well-being. But what’s the best way to experience deep relaxation? Well, in my opinion there’s no better way of achieving deep relaxation than with self-hypnosis.
Self-Hypnosis for deep relaxation
I’ve lost count of the number of people who have told me just how much easier their life is once they know how to properly relax. Self hypnosis involves teaching you how to reach a natural state of heightened awareness, where your mind becomes open to your own beneficial suggestions and changes. Our vast range of guided self-hypnosis recordings will take you on a journey of deep ‘creative’ relaxation. They can help you to set goals and personal enhancement targets. They can help improve your life by using your own resources to make positive and lasting changes. But most of all, they help you to experience deep relaxation.
Hypnosis is not a loss of control. Hypnosis is a totally safe and natural state of mind which enables you to reach built in information, attitudes and feelings you have towards life so that you can either strengthen or change them, according to your needs. Once you can relax comfortably, you can increase your self confidence, concentrate more easily, improve your memory, get a good night’s sleep, change your eating habits, overcome a fear, be free of a habit and be generally happier with yourself.
Let me tell you about my experience of relaxation. Firstly, I make sure I am feeling as comfortable and safe as possible; undisturbed and in a quiet room, away from any noises or other people. Then, I take a number of deep breathes, deeper than I have all day, to really reach the bottom of my tummy. I feel my lungs soak up the air and as I release the breath, I just let go. Then, I take myself into self hypnosis (which can be learned from using one of our self hypnosis CDs or downloads) and enjoy and review anything which may have happened throughout the day.
I may go through conversations I had with people and thank myself for doing the best I did with the information I had at the time. I may send messages of love to people I know; and, check out how I really feel deep down inside, releasing any unwanted feelings. I may answer any questions which may arise. This may sound different, but it has taken me years to develop my own self-hypnosis techniques and to finely tune them to suit me. Using my skills and experience of relaxation, the CD and MP3 recordings help you to do this so much quicker. You have the benefit of my experience all in one recording, so you can learn it for yourself, very quickly.
Take time to follow the instructions and develop your own way of reaching a satisfying state of self-hypnosis that suits you. Once you develop your own skills, you will be surprised at just what you can achieve.
