When we are anxious and stressed, our body reacts by releasing certain hormones, such as adrenaline and cortisol. These hormones make us feel more alert, so we can act faster and gain more strength in our major muscle groups, which is excellent when we need to run away from a threat or stand and defend ourselves. This is called the ‘fight, flight or freeze’ response. It happens automatically in our bodies, and we have no control over it.
All animals have this response, which is how we have evolved to help protect ourselves from danger, and when there is a real threat, this is life-saving. The brain, on some level, doesn’t know what is real or perceived, so you can set off this response by just ’thinking’ about something, which makes you then feel anxious too.
Many modern-day things cause us to go into this mode: the ‘maybe’ or ‘what if’ things that haven’t happened or have already been done and you can’t do anything about.
You want to pause or turn off the thoughts in your head, but you just can’t.
You feel nervous regularly and so frustrated that you can’t stop this cycle.
Your sleep is disturbed, and you wake up worrying and unable to sleep. You feel tense and uptight throughout the next day and snap at your family.
You don’t have to feel like this. You have a choice. You can break this continuous cycle by hypnosis reprogramming automatic responses and helping you to change your thoughts. You then change your feelings, which, in turn, changes your life. Hypnotherapy for anxiety can help!
