75% of illness is stress related WOW!

March 14th, 2018

Recent research showed GPs report 75% of illness is stress related. WOW!

Almost everyone needs to learn to manage this.

Stress builds up in our bodies like blowing up a balloon, it keeps filling until either you let some out… or you become overwhelmed and your balloon “bursts”… causing illness and breakdown.

Along the way you start to feel the effects of your Sympathetic Nervous System causing the Fight, Flight, Freeze response:

  • Anger from the fight response
  • Anxiety and even panic from flight
  • Procrastination and activity paralysis from freeze.

At least 75% of people need to release stress in manageable ways. And this is what I will be teaching in my workshop on Sat 24th March. This actually fits in with those of my clients who are not actually booking in to see me for stress or anxiety. 75% or more of the rest tell me they suffer from stress.

I am running a workshop on Saturday 24th March to teach you how to recognise and release your stress in manageable ways.

I will teach you practical common-sense tools along with some self-hypnosis to empower you in both your life and your business. You will learn practical and easy techniques to help yourself through tough times without the need to turn to medication or worse, self-medication.

You will discover that understanding the difference between your conscious and your unconscious mind, also sometimes called the subconscious mind, helps you to make changes in your life, because it is 90% of your mind and because it is the boss, it is where you need to work to make any lasting change.

To ensure that this makes sense I include a small amount of brain anatomy to show how we get overwhelmed, stressed and anxious and then why this is so closely related to our entire physiology often leading to insomnia, changes in weight and illness.

The workshop includes simple techniques to change both your emotional state and your physiology and you will also learn how to do self hypnosis to assist you talk effectively to your unconscious mind to make changes you want.

Knowing how to release stress is life changing so don’t waste time because the workshop is only just over a week away!

You will get tea or coffee when you arrive and half way through. Parking is easy at the rear of the venue, which is very central

24th March 1.30-4.30pm

Stress is held in your body and it remembers

How did that calm person who always copes suddenly, out of the blue became massively stressed and have a breakdown? Nothing special happened.

The thing is that stress keeps adding up, like continually blowing up a balloon until it reaches breaking point and a lot of people are like swans gliding apparently serenely along. What you don’t see is how hard they may be paddling under water, especially when the currents are strong or the water turbulent.

The problem with that hidden turbulenc...

Why is work stress getting worse?

Work stress in increasing in our society and especially for business owners and managers. Stress builds up, a bit like continually putting more air into a balloon until it reaches bursting point or overwhelm.

You need real emotional resilience and strength to help you cope with all that day-to-day stress and overwhelm.

The thing is that when you become overwhelmed, the part of your brain that acts as a librarian, (hippocampus) stops filing things efficiently and calls in your "security guard...

Its actually not the problem – it’s a solution

Weight gain and excess weight is not a problem…

Yes, you did read that right. It is solution that your body has found to solve the real problem. So the first thing to do on any weight loss journey is to work out reasons WHY your body wants to insulate itself.

That inner change has to happen before sustainable weight loss. If the inner change does not happen, you stay on the diet yo-yo.

Your body is much more complicated that simply balancing food in with food and exercise out. The par...
