Stress is a Bitch. She makes certain we catch every colds and flu going but hypnosis can help keep us healthy.
We all know how it goes; We’re feeling particularly pressured, maybe we’ve a test or exam to revise for, maybe been working long hours or partying a tad too much, not getting enough sleep, feeling run down.
Whatever is causing stress, we all know too well the familiar symptoms...the tickle in our throat, one little sneeze cascading quickly into a fit of sickly coughing , some sniffing on your commute which sets your fellow passengers eying you suspiciously and backing away as though we’ve got the plague.
And of course there's our unsightly red eyes and crusty bunged-up nose, the familiar smell of Vicks vapour and lemsip.
’Not again!’ we think, 'But I’ve only just got over my last cold.’
The effects Stress has on the immune system and our overall level of wellness have been studied and well-documented.
She causes a rises in the hormone cortisol which in turn weakens our body’s natural frontline defence to viruses and bacteria, our all important immune system.
This makes us not only more susceptible to colds and flu but means we’re ill for longer too, often never really recovering properly. Many of us frazzled ladies will go from one cold to another forgetting what it’s like to feel well
Another area we would be smart to consider is how she plays her part in our unhealthy choices.
Perhaps we’re feeling so hassled we don't take time to recover properly from a bout sickness, too quickly getting back to our hectic lives when we should rightly still be laid up in our pyjamas watching morning television.
She can encourage other unhealthy lifestyle behaviours too.
If we're over stretched, under pressure we can forget
to eat healthy, exercise and sleep enough at night
Her influence means we might not think twice about sharing the lift with someone who looks half dead with the flu or forget to wash our hands after playing with our friends toddler who...
gorgeous as she is,
Has a suspiciously runny nose.
If we want to be healthy and well; If we want to swap red-eyes and scabby noses for clean and beautiful ones,
If we want energy and vitality even during cold and flu season, then keeping an eye on our stress levels is a smart things to do.
