Managing Stress and Anxiety

There are several key approaches to managing stress and anxiety; one of the best being a focus on managing psychological stress through hypnosis. I prefer meditation and auto suggestion combined with my self-hypnosis! That's just me.

Here are some tips and pointers about how to achieve this goal, (and I hope you get a lot of pleasure from this, as you may not realize just how much stress you have built up inside you!)

Learn how to manage stress. Don't let it manage you!

We all know that life is full of tricky situations that can cause stress. You've most likely also noticed that some people are able to easily manage these stressful events, while others are almost constantly overwhelmed.

The people who perform better under stress are no different from you, except that they have learned more effective stress management skills. Learning stress management skills is really one of the most important things you can do in your life.

Why Are Stress Management Skills SO Important?

HEALTH WARNING: Stress has been linked to most/many health problems, including heart attacks and strokes. In fact, WebMD estimates that 75% to 95% of all doctors' visits are stress related. Being over-stressed can also lead to low work performance, sleep issues, absent-mindedness, decreased interest in life, addictions, and many other undesirable results. These include clinical depression and other forms of mental illness.

On the other hand, people who respond WELL to stress and know how to prevent unnecessary anxiety are typically peak performers! (They seem to take an ENERGY charge from stressful situations!)
