Struggle to Sleep – Waking up Tired? FREE Sleep Hypnosis

If you are anything like me, you may require a little wind down time.  I like to enjoy a relaxing shower, incorporating sleep inducing oils such as Lavender and a Serenity Blend.  I occasionally use a diffuser in the bedroom with a blend of Balance and Serenity Therapeutic Grade Oils by DoTerra.  Many factors can cause insomnia which can include: stress, jet lag, alcohol, nicotine or caffeine, noisy, cold or hot room, shift patterns, illness or drugs, low self-esteem, anxiety and depression.  If your sleeplessness lasts for over a month or affects your daily life, then your GP may recommend sleeping pills.  However, these come with many side effects, including drowsiness the next day.  It is estimated that one in three people have mild insomnia and many more poor sleepers have developed sleep habits that make it difficult to change.

So if you are looking to explore some natural strategies, you have come to the right place:

  1. Changing your Pattern of Sleep:  Put the time you are awake at night to better use.  If you focus solely on getting to sleep, it could make matters worse.  Sleep is a natural phenomenon that happens all by itself.  The moment you start getting involved with ‘wanting to go to sleep’ you are activating your stress response and this will prevent the natural process. I like to go to sleep listening to something relaxing or even educational – the voice has to be calming, I might even listen to something I have recorded.  I sometimes listen to an audio book on a 30 minute timer which also works well for me.  I also have a Collection of techniques which I dip into and share with my clients.  I have summarised which techniques work for myself and my clients pretty much 100% of the time.
  2. It is suggested that having a routine is one of the best ways to get your sleep on track.  Sticking to the same time can help your body prepare for rest.
  3. Prepare by not having caffeine after 3pm.  Ideally spend a hour or two before bed relaxing.  Turn off blue-light emitting devices such as your phone, TV, tablet or laptop an hour before bed.  If you’d like to explore listening to a relaxation hypnosis at bedtime, make sure the light on your device is covered.
  4. Studies have shown that a course of hypnosis, mindfulness or meditation can lead to a better night’s sleep. To help my clients get back into a healthy sleep routine, I have created a complimentary DEEP PEACEFUL SLEEP HYPNOSIS mp3.  If you would like to beat sleeplessness and insomnia with hypnosis, then email me at suzi@rapid-health.co.uk for access to your free sleep hypnosis audio file.

Are you Suffering with Low Self-esteem?

Innocent baby in a basket

Self-esteem is directly related to how much you like, approve, accept and value yourself. Low self-worth is a major contributor to low self-esteem and depression.  Making self-worth a condition of other’s approval, achievements, academic success, appearance or popularity will BREAK DOWN your inner self-worth and consequently HURT your self-esteem.

We must learn how to value ourselves solely for the fact that we are born a unique human being with incredible potential to love, laugh and engage in life fully.  As an infant you were innocent and dependent on your parents and those you lived with for survival. As an adult it is vital to discover how to love and like yourself FREE from conditions.  Unconditional love and acceptance of past mistakes, failings, disabilities, defects or inadequacies is ESSENTIAL to living your BEST life.  You can suffer in survival mode indefinitely OR choose a FRESH & NEW path.  And if you don’t know how, I can help you.

So if you are sick and tired of suffering, being your own worst enemy and you are looking for help to create a deep unshakable self-esteem, get in touch with Suzi on +44(0)7836 635233.

9 Steps to Quit Procrastinating

9 ACTIONABLE STEPS TO QUIT PROCRASTINATING 

Everyone procrastinates from time to time, especially with mundane tasks.  Part of the reason you procrastinate is because the task at hand seems to daunting. Is it actually possible to break the cycle of procrastination?  Only if you change your mindset.

1.  Get organised.  You can’t do any work until you clarify what assignments, tasks need to be completed.

2. Start your day with the hardest tasks first.

3. Break down big projects into clear small steps and take that first step.

4.  Set a deadline and get rid of distractions.  Never wait for ‘the perfect time’ it’s just the mind making up an excuse – just start. Success Mastery Skill (2018) – High Performance Habits, Brendon Burchard. 

5. Aim for done over perfect.

6. Decide upon a reward for yourself when it’s done.

7.  Use a New Strategy:  Push yourself into action with the 2 minute rule. If something is going to take less than 2 minutes – do it now.

8.  Limiting Beliefs:  Become aware of your thinking patterns.  According to UC Berkeley professor Martin Covington, fear of failure is directly linked to beliefs about self-worth. The limiting belief assumption is that failing means you are not worthy.  If you experienced repeated failures then this compounds the feeling of low self worth, therefore rather than risking failing with the associated fear, you make yourself stay stuck in procrastination.

9. Practice the 5 second rule:  Count back from 5 to 1 whenever you feel anxiety attempting to move forward, whilst at the very same time PUSH YOURSELF into action.  If your mind is operating from familiar patterns, this method prevents your ‘procrastinating mind’ talking you out of taking action.

If having put the above actionable steps into practice and procrastination is still a problem for you, book your free session today by messaging Suzi on +44(0)7836 635233.  Let’s get rid of procrastination for good.

Can Mindfulness Help improve Anxiety?

CAN MINDFULNESS HELP IMPROVE ANXIETY?
1.  Mindfulness is a Self-Development approach that can help train the mind to break the habit of incessant worrying.
2.  Anxiety sufferers are caught up in a stream of thought.  Anxiety sufferers are the first to notice that they over think things.  There is a constant vigilance and fearing a ‘perceived’ threat. Mindfulness trains the mind to be more present in the moment by becoming fully aware of each moment.  How your body feels, tuning into different sensations inside your body can awaken your ability to be less in the mind and more fully engaged in the now.
3.  If your life is a series of individual ‘now’ moments that are creating your future and past – it seems common sense that NOW is where your focus is best served. There are many different styles of teaching mindfulness and each teacher will have their own personal approach.  Every month, I host a Mindfulness Group Practice in my home practice in Birchington-on-Sea, Kent.  If you are wanting to learn how to let go of anxious thoughts, or simply find out how to develop the art of mindfulness, get in touch.

Coping with Sudden Loss

COPING WITH SUDDEN LOSS by Suzi Tyler 

It is important to give yourself as long as it takes to let the tears fall. The hard fact remains that all of us who lose someone dear, discover that in the end, buckets of tears won’t bring our loved one back.  There is no miracle undoing, no right or wrongs, except perhaps to escape into alcohol/drugs BUT they DEFINITELY make things even worse in the end.  

Spiritual Awakening

Death is something we all have to face.  We can either let it destroy our inner peace by worrying about it, OR we can come to terms with the simple fact that everyone is going to die sooner or later. Sometimes death can be the catalyst for Spiritual Awakening.  The plain and simple fact is that we cannot bring someone physically back, but we can find ways to speak and hear any words left unspoken and even have questions unanswered – answered.

Be patient with yourself…the pain can ease and even pass, but not for everyone.  Just as you cannot rush the grieving process, you cannot predict how grief might affect anyone.  It has its own momentum and you will know when the time is right for you to process your feelings.  

So how can you cope with the pain of loss?  Strange as it sounds – by not resisting your feelings.  Death has the potential to make you love more deeply and create stronger connections than ever before.  Death can also be a pivotal moment that can plummet you into despair, BUT it can also teach you to live and value every second and understand how precious life is.

It may sound too simplistic to say keep busy, but the reality is the more time you spend on reflecting upon your loss, the more all consuming it gets. If you can get to the point of finding something meaningful to occupy you, it can give your tormented mind a respite.

I personally have found EFT Matrix Reimprinting to be a magnificent helping friend, especially if there is trauma present.   The technique is sensitive to your experience and can help facilitate a healing acceptance and inner peace.  If you have suffered a loss and are looking for some help get in touch.

Which 3 Biggest Blocks are Holding You Back?

WHAT IS HOLDING YOU BACK?

Are you thriving or surviving?  Are you fully engaged with living your best life or going through the motions?  Are you suffering with low self worth, self-doubt and low self-esteem? Is there something blocking your freedom?

1. IDENTITY  Are you clear about who you really are inside and what is most important to you? Perhaps you are highly self critical and hate aspects of yourself? If you don’t have clarity as to who you are and what is important to you, you can easily wind up fulfilling other’s expectations and goals.

2. EMOTIONS  We all grow up having experiences that impact our beliefs about who we think we are and what things mean.  EMOTIONAL triggers arise when we made decisions that hold onto regrets, grievances, guilt, shame or disappointments.  Intense emotions can disrupt our energy and create stress and tension in our body and mind.  Perhaps you are almost ready to let the past go to be free to enjoy the fresh and new.

3. LIMITING BELIEFS are like Gremlins in the background of our minds. Beliefs are neither true, right or false, they are mostly perceptions and evaluations.  Many beliefs originate from those we lived with when we were under the age of 6 and may even have been passed down through the generations.  Beliefs can be preceded by a decision to accept something as true.  Limiting Beliefs hold us back by causing negative emotions that fuel negative behaviours and results.  The results provide an evidence feedback loop of that convinces the mind to believe whatever it believed!  In other words, whatever you believe will become true.

So in summary, if you feel something is holding you back…the first step is to become aware of what you are thinking.  This will provide a valuable clue as to what belief is limiting you.  An Empowering NO LIMITS Mindset ALWAYS chooses the belief that ALL limiting beliefs are FALSE.  Yes FALSE, no matter what!

If you feel that something is holding you back…it is likely to be YOU.  It isn’t your fault – it is your programming.  If you want to eliminate running the same patterns for the rest of your life, take the first step and then reach out for help and guidance.  Contact Suzi on +44(0)7836 635233 for a discovery chat or simply ask for an appointment.  

Panic attack help

Rapid relief from Anxiety/Panic Symptoms by Suzi Tyler

Q.  How long will it take to be cured of panic attacks?  A.  Everyone is unique, but typically 3-6 sessions.   It depends on many factors such as:  1. Early life experiences.  2. Age of very first panic attack.  3. How symptoms have been managed.  4. Support network.  5. Attitude to life.  6.  A willingness, desire and commitment to succeed.

My specialism is curing panic attacks by using a powerful technique that neutralises trauma.  If you have more than one panic attack trauma, it will be helpful to neutralise any emotional intensity so that you do not get a fear spike overwhelm you.  The physical symptoms of panic attacks are caused by any associated sensory trigger such as sight, smell, touch, taste or feel, which activates the stress response.

I have found from many years of experience, that a personalised approach is considerably more effective.  I can give you a clear evaluation after your first session.  If your panic attack is caused by multiple aspects, significant traumas require neutralising.  It isn’t a long process, as a trigger can be neutralised in just a few seconds or minutes.

I practice in Birchington, Whitstable, Witherdenshall Retreat, Wingham, Kent and Harley Street London and offer Video session Worldwide.

Freedom from Panic Attacks

Panic Attack Triggers

The trouble with panic is that it comes on so fast.  It can make you weak when you want to be strong, scared when you want to be calm, muddled when you want to be clear.  Panic triggers can be anything associated with a sudden shock or trauma.

Panic attack emotions can develop rapidly.

The symptoms of panic can be terrifying and embarrassing.  Shaking, heart pounding, tightness, shortness of breath and even fainting.  It isn’t any wonder the mind looses perspective and flips out.  The truth is the ‘fear’ response is a natural reaction to keep you safe.

If you are ready to unlock your potential freedom from unpleasant symptoms of fear, get in touch now.

3 Tips to Improve Relationships

Relationship Tips 

Happy relationships are possible when both parties stop blaming and start valuing what is good.  Open communication is vital to prevent little resentments stacking up.  Resentment destroys passion.  Find out what inspires intimacy and passion.   Prolonged stress, an imbalanced lifestyle, lack of trust, intolerance and impatience poison relationship happiness.

1. Communication to build Rapport and Trust:

Using ‘I feel’ sentences, rather than ‘you……’ is taking ownership of your feelings rather than attacking, criticising or blaming your partner.  Whenever you notice yourself saying ‘you…..’ notice how it calls out the ego and puts them on the defensive.  The ego will feel threatened and will automatically want to shift the blame round to you.  Therefore changing your conversation to ‘I prefer, I feel, I would really appreciate if you could help me here….., REALLY HELPS to build rapport and trust.

2.  Playful Passion

If you want to re-ignite some playful passion, how you say things is even more important than content.  A soft tonality with loving assertiveness is what you are aiming for.  ‘Think ‘playful’ before you speak.  A playful smile with playful eyes can inspire intimacy.  By contrast, impatient snappy, confrontational, disrespect is a passion killer.   Playing games together is a great way to ignite fun.

3.  Active Listening

If either one of you feels unheard – choose an object that one of you holds and whoever is holding the object gets to speak while the other listens without interrupting.  This helps to calm the conversation down and prevents you from talking over each other.

It isn’t just that someone isn’t actively listening and fully present, it is also that they will be listening through their own personal filter of understanding and emotional state.  If your partner is tired, stressed or unhappy, this will affect how they perceive anything you want to say.   If someone has come into a relationship with old hurts or prejudices, this will distort their perception of reality.   If you feel disrespected or misunderstood, these feelings fuel resentment and destroy passion.

You could ask:  ‘I feel you are resenting me, have I said or done something to upset you?’  If your partner offers some constructive criticism or insight, let them know you will take it on board.  If they offer destructive criticism and there is a definite difference, you have a choice whether or not, to let it in.     Perhaps the timing wasn’t quite right and an open conversation can achieve a better result if rescheduled.

Stress & Anger Facts

How are anger and stress related?  Does one affect the other?

Anger is actually attempting to protect us from painful feelings that oftentimes makes us feel vulnerable and not in control.  e.g. shame, humiliation, perceived wrong doing, being forced to do something, trapped, pressured.  It can also be a learned habit being triggered from frustration, impatience or intolerance.

It is a very common to cover up fear, hurt and sadness with anger.  Interestingly pain alone is not enough to cause anger.  Anger occurs when pain is combined with an anger triggering thought.  Depression is anger directed inwards.  Aggression is anger directed outwards.  It’s good to stick up for yourself, but is aggression going to win you friends and influence people?   

Stress is a physiological reaction that occurs in response to a perceived harmful event or threat to survival.  Stress is a survival mechanism to mobilise us into action and keep us safe in an emergency.  Unfortunately unmanaged stress can spoil our long term health and relationships.

Stressors:  Fear, anxiety, pressure of exams, expectations, indecision, relationship conflict or loss, moving house, humiliation, rejection, perceived injustice, overwhelm, striving to be perfect, physical pain, low from an addiction, emotions of shame, helplessness and hopelessness, feeling out of control, offended, forced, trapped, personal boundaries violated, anger.

Is stress harmful, or does it have some benefits?  You may have heard that a little bit of stress is actually good for you.  In the right amount adrenaline can power you through a long day at work, boost your workouts and focus the mind.  Stress chemicals that include adrenaline and cortisol prepare you for a perceived threat.   When the perceived ‘threat’ is over, the body will do everything it can to re-establish balance.   However, if the threat is workload, perfectionism, a difficult relationship, hatred of another or self loathing, these will compound over time and threaten your quality of life.    What feels good to conquer the day, will eventually turn nasty.   So when does stress turn nasty…

Harmful effects of stress: fatigue, depression, anxiety, more prone to colds and flu, hormonal imbalances, Thyroid dysfunction, immune disorders, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, ME, MS and IBS.   If the thyroid system becomes over strained…it is irreversible.  Stress has been linked to high blood pressure, strokes, acne, impaired memory and dementia.  Headaches and weight gain are worstened by too much stress.

Do we have a warning flag that indicates too much stress?  If you are feeling fatigued/exhausted, moody, irritable, frustrated, easy to anger or more intolerant than usual.

If you are struggling with stress, get in touch with Suzi 07836 635233 to learn how to create reserves of vibrant energy to enjoy the quality lifestyle you deserve.   Appointments are available in Birchington and Whitstable Kent and Harley Street, London W1.  Also Video Skype.
