stephenHere’s the HypnoBusters top 10 guide to reducing your stress. This is vital to know…

Stress can fill your body with stress related hormones, which can be more damaging than cigarettes and alcohol.

  1. Break up your day. If at work, or at home, work in half hour bursts. We work at our most efficient for half an hour. After this point we begin to tire, and stress builds up. By working for half an hour then taking a 5 minute break, the quality of your work will improve, and you will get more done.
  2. Meditate every day. Learn how to meditate, or listen to some meditation audio’s. At the very least take 2 minutes out a few times a day and take 10 slow deep breaths. This can be really effective.
  3. Learn how to think more positively. (We have a subliminal audio that can help with positive thinking). Be mindful to think more positively. Put reminders in prominent places. Place post it notes on your computer, and notices on your walls. After a few weeks it will become an automatic habit.
  4. Remember there is only so much you can do in a day. Don’t try to cram too much in. Some things just have to wait.
  5. Eat a healthier more balanced diet. Eat more naturally and cut down on processed foods. Eat more fresh fruits and vegetables. Giving your body the proper fuel it requires will help your feel more calm, relaxed and content.
  6. Make sure you have outdoor time every day. We are not designed to spend all day indoors. Fresh air helps calm and relax you.
  7. Play some relaxing background music. Research shows that relaxing music helps reduce your heart rate and blood pressure.
  8. Learn how to say no. If you find it difficult to say no, then this could be a massive cause of stress for you. People pick up on this, and use it against you. Don’t let this happen. It is your life and it is up to you to live it on your terms.
  9. Learn to forgive. People you know and love will wrong you from time to time. Nobody is perfect. Don’t bottle these feelings up – let them go. It only causes YOU harm. If necessary, talk to that person in a calm and rational way.
  10. Laugh more. Nothing is more therapeutic and stress busting than having a good laugh. Seek out more humour in your life. Turn off the news channel and watch comedy instead.
