hypnotherapy services wirral cheshireFor the majority of us, Stress has become part of our every day routine lives, work, shopping, driving, looking after the home and kids, caring for others or simply trying to balance all the demands of life can increase our stress levels.
We can spend a fortune on ways to de-stress such as retail therapy, holidays, spa days, alcohol, over eating, etc, but this can provide short term release.
Stress can be helpful in enabling us to deal with situations and to take action. It is our in built survival mechanism.

Stress is primarily a physical response. When stressed, the body thinks it is under attack and switches to ‘fight or flight’ mode, releasing a complex mix of hormones and chemicals such as adrenaline, cortisol and norepinephrine to prepare the body for physical action. This causes a number of reactions, from blood being diverted to muscles to shutting down unnecessary bodily functions such as digestion.
In the modern world, the ‘fight or flight’ mode can still help us survive dangerous situations, such as reacting swiftly to a person running in front of our car by slamming on the brakes.
The challenge is when our body goes into a state of stress in inappropriate situations. When blood flow is going only to the most important muscles needed to fight or flee, brain function is minimised. This can lead to an inability to ‘think straight’; a state that is a great hindrance in both our work and home lives. If we are kept in a state of stress for long periods, it can be detrimental to our health. Increased blood sugars can lead to health problems, Poor sleep, unhealthy eating and drinking habits, poor concentration, aches and pains due to tense muscles and strained relationships.
