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.
