The Stresshacker Podcast 2: Teaching your body to relax

I’ve been helping people with stress, anxiety and wellbeing since 1989, training with  some of the world’s greatest teachers in the field of modern psychology and communication skills, including David Grove, Richard Bandler, Paul McKenna and John Grinder.

But before that, I was majorly stressed out!

 In fact, I was hospitalised TWICE for a collapsed lung triggered  by stress!

It is my firm belief that the body expresses what the mind is concerned with. And boy had I been stressed – mentally and physically. I had been working too hard, partying too much and worrying about everything and nothing. I had ignored the nagging pains in my chest for too long. A collapsed lung was how my body finally chose to express what was going on in my mind and emotions.

For this reason, in episode two of my new Stresshacker podcast, I share one of the first techniques I discovered and used frequently to help me combat the stress. I would like to share  it with you.

Trust me, anyone and everyone can learn how to relax. But sometimes we need to teach our body first.

The more you listen to this, the easier it will be to relax.

After you have followed the routine for several weeks, you may find that you can reduce the number of phrase repetitions because your body will be reprogramming itself, and responding more readily to the suggestions.

Try these techniques for at least twenty one days to embed the suggestions so they become second nature.

Introducing The Stresshacker Podcast! Episode 1: One of my favourite meditations

Finally! I have a podcast! It’s called “The Stresshacker with Sue Smith” and I am really excited to share it with you!

I have wanted to do a podcast for a long time – especially since I’m more comfortable with audio than video. But the question has been: what should I do it about?

Then I decided to stop over-thinking it and just LAUNCH something. So please join me as I delve into the podcasting world and forgive me if I’m learning as I go! Hopefully we’ll both enjoy the ride.

To start with I’m sharing one of my very favourite meditations and, as the podcasts progress, I’d love to share more personal stories, advice, tips and thoughts – as well as collaborate with some of my fellow wellbeing coaches.

If you have anything you’d like to hear me talk about – or if you’d like to ask me a question – please get in touch! 

Episode One of The Stresshacker Podcast “One of My Favourite Meditations”

This is great if you need a nap or a refreshing 5-minute meditation session. It’s also perfect for refreshing yourself before heading out, taking a relaxing moment, focusing the mind, drifting off to sleep, meditating, unwinding and de-stressing or preparing for something. Use it if you’re trying to make some decisions or if you need a moment of respite before embarking on a creative project.

Please do subscribe to The Stresshacker and share with friends – I need your help in spreading the word!

Oh, and I’m now sharing more over on LinkedIn. If you’re on there, please add me as a connection or follow me (whichever you feel most comfortable with!)
