Relationship between Stress and Anger

My name is Suzi Tyler of Rapid-Health.  I help my clients to unlock their potential for love, fulfilling relationships, vibrant health and happiness.  Powerful ways I help my clients manage stress include:  1.  Meditation/mindfulness.  2.  Rapid NLP Pattern Interrupt.   3.   If appropriate, trauma resolution, tapping (acupressure) technique and belief change.  

How would I describe Stress?  Stress is a physiological reaction that occurs in response to a perceived harmful event or threat to survival.  You could say stress is a survival mechanism to mobilise us into action and keep us safe in an emergency.  Unfortunately unbridled stress can spoil our long term health, happiness and freedom, if we don’t know how to manage it.

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.

How are anger and stress related?  Does one affect the other differently?  Stress predisposes us to feel anger more easily.  Anger is actually a protective mechanism to protect us from painful feelings that oftentimes makes you feel vulnerable and not in control.  e.g. shame, humiliation, perceived wrong doing, being forced to do something, trapped, pressured.  It is a very common habit 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 some anger triggering thought.  Anger likes a target – depression is anger directed inwards.  Aggression can lead to unbridled rage  – now you have a huge potential of doing something you’ll regret.   The world is a safe and friendly when we choose kindest over hatred; empathy and compassion over fear.

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.

3 Top Tips for Stress-relief

Anxiety-relief, Stress/Anger Management sessions are available in Birchington & Whitstable, Kent and Harley Street, London W1.

If you have been put off meditation in the past, I would prefer you read the following with an open mind.  In fact, I would prefer you to think of the following technique as a stress relief strategy.  Meditation isn’t just about slowing the brainwaves, it is conclusively proven to boost your energy and vitality significantly.  Hormones re-balance, mood improves and relationships improve.  Whilst quietening the mind for a few minutes each day, you will be able to look back at the cumulative benefits in surprising ways.   Occasionally a moment of bliss, an inspiration or a higher state of consciousness becomes available to you.  Higher states of consciousness simply feel like freedom…freedom from the mind’s usual identity, nagging fears and concerns.

Tip 1.  Releasing negative emotions:  Deep relaxation is possible for everyone.  Become aware of any uncomfortable feelings in your body.   Sit calmly with them in a state of acceptance as you allow them to release.  All emotions that feel uncomfortable are caused by disruptions in your energy system that you have the power to release.   If you just sit still with an intention to allow the emotion to pass… it will.

Tip 2.  Yoga Breath:  Take Three conscious breaths. Allow yourself to focus on your breath and just notice inhaling and exhaling through the nose.  Inhale…pause and exhale.  For the first three breaths, push your breath all the way out.   The breath out stimulates your parasympathetic nervous system to rest and relax.

Tip 3.   Taoist Meditation Technique:   This is a fun Taoist technique that I personally use a lot.  Direct your focus back into the centre of your brain as if looking out through that space between your eyebrows.  Imagine you are a little Buddha sitting crossed-legged on a bed of cushions in the centre of your brain behind your eyebrows.  This stimulates the pineal gland, responsible for higher states of conscious.  If thoughts intrude, repeat a mantra such as ‘release and let go’.

The body can only take so much tension and stress before the body gives you a warning.  There are now hundreds of scientifically documented benefits, too numerous to mention here, that recommend meditation to support and maintain vibrant health and wellbeing.

Testimony from David Lynch:  “It has given me effortless access to unlimited reserves of energy, creativity and happiness deep within.  This level of life is sometimes called “pure consciousness” And this level is deep within us all.”

Suzi Tyler, Master Hypnotherapist, CNHC & BIH Certified

With the right professional, you are in very safe hands.  Always look for a Hypnotherapist who is CNHC and BIH government recommended.  This seal of approval validates the highest Code of Conduct requirement and ensures your practitioner is fully trained and up-to-date with Continuous Professional Development.

Why Hypnosis?  Hypnosis is a powerful short-cut skill that can instruct your body and mind to unlock your potential by challenging your fears.   It can be used to explore reasons for certain behaviours, blocks and hidden conflicts.  Once understood, intentions can be realigned and success achieved.  Hypnosis simply utilises the alpha, theta and delta brainwaves to access the subconscious mind.  Suzi records hypnosis sessions and guided meditations to condition the mind with new ways of thinking and feeling.

Sleep Issues & Fatigue  In addition, if your energy flags, or you’re struggling to switch off at night, a 20 min hypnosis or meditation can create a calm focus and away you go, refreshed, relaxed or alert.   If 80-95% of your behaviours are automatic programs and unconscious patterns, you can understand how much of a short cut hypnosis can be to create a new pattern in this highly receptive brainwave state.

Happiness, Confidence & Self esteem   Scientific studies show that 90% of happiness does NOT depend on external circumstances but on the way your brain processes whatever is going on.  Therefore 90% of how up or down you feel is determined by what you make of it in your head.   If your inner self talk is kind, encouraging and supportive, happy feelings of optimism and enthusiasm will become available to you.

You can find out if hypnosis is suitable for you by calling Suzi on 07836 635233   suzi@rapid-health.co.uk

3 Top Habits of Vibrantly Healthy, Happy People

  1. Make Vibrant habits your highest priority and develop the mindset that makes the difference.   “Vibrant health means:  High energy,  relaxed focus, wellbeing, happy feelings, strong, flexible & cardio fit, enthusiastic, generous and alive.”    Planning a balanced diet that includes plenty of raw, fresh colourful fruits, vegetables & salads, lovingly prepared and savoured will boost massive reserves of energy throughout the day, so that you are able to enjoy your time well into the evening.  Apart from including more plant based enzyme rich foods, letting go of any ‘stress habit’ means starting your day off a little earlier with an exercise, meditation or mind focusing routine.   Just as you can train a dog with rewards – you can train your mind in much the same way by associating ‘massive pleasure’ to any new behaviour you want to create.   Tell your mind what you want, not what you don’t want:  “Vibrant health & energy is available to me today.”   WRITE IT DOWN – soak it in.    You can literally rewire your brain to give you what you want in as little as 21 days.   I reward myself with an energy packed breakfast that is simply delicious.    “My favourite treat breakfast includes cherries and sweet berries with a mouthwatering selection of my favourite passion fruits.     I include eating mindfully, savouring each juicy, blissful, naturally sweet mouthful.  With this one action, I am honouring my body, energy and life with immense gratitude.”
  2. Time is your most valuable resource.  Success requires a decision and commitment to taking action. Deciding what is most important for the day and getting it done first, becomes its own reward.   Breaking down bigger goals into smaller managable tasks can break through procrastination.  There are different ways of choosing what to do first.  One method is getting done what you dislike the most – FIRST.   This method releases valuable energy by getting it out of the way.  Success will often include less enjoyable aspects that need to be taken care of, such as a training, studying, presenting, accounting, auditioning, even exercising for some people is a drain…and if you re-train yourself to love your least favourite bits – even better.  You can then move through your day feeling fully focused without any nagging feeling that you should be doing something else.
  3. Whatever you give your attention to grows.  So AWARENESS & INTENTION really is KEY if you want to design your life.  If you genuinely desire vibrant health, happiness, energy and success.  One mindfulness technique I like to share, includes Breath in PEACE, breath out with a SMILE.  In peace…out smile.

I hope you enjoyed my top 3 tips for creating vibrant health, happiness and success with tons more energy.

12 Tips to Boost Energy & Wellbeing

10 Tips to Support a Vibrant Energy Lifestyle

1.  Find a new hobby that includes exercise.   Search for some form of exercise that you look forward to.  Experiment until you find a few things that you enjoy.  My personal favourites are:  Dancing, Classes in Body Balance, Yoga, Body Pump.   Swimming, cycling, badminton, playing outdoor games with kids: football, trampoline, shuttle ball.

2. Choose foods that feel energising.   Before you choose something, stop, pause consider….  tune into your intuition….

3. Stop obsessing about food and find a new focus to absorb you.

4.  Cut back on ‘mindless’ eating by choosing to only eat whilst sitting down in a relaxed setting.  Savour your food by appreciating the taste, texture, smell, touch and experience.

5. Eating a little of what you fancy might work for you.    Just keep in mind ‘processed’ sugary or fatty foods are going to drain your energy.   Remember in Tip 2 – Think BEFORE you eat – “is this going to energise me?”  Little and often is preferable to huge meals that crash your energy.

6. Every time you give into a habit you are making it stronger. Ask the question:” is this food helping me to create positive habits?” If the answer is no – ask yourself, “do I really need this?”

7. Get creative. Experiment with one brand new recipe each week, have fun with your food.  Include a little protein with each meal to stop your sugar levels, energy and moods crashing. I create 3 new recipes each week by receiving a box of salad ingredients with recipes from Abel & Co.

8. Stop eating when 3/4 full.  Get comfortable with leaving food on your plate.

9. As a guide, aim to eat 2-3 balanced meals with 2 smaller protein or fruit snacks. Make those meals more delicious by savouring each mouthful, deliberately and with complete mindfulness.

10. TV with adverts contain commercials that persuade you to eat junk and it is hypnotising you.  Advertisers know this, that is why they spend millions on adverts during peak viewing.  Instead spend the evening with something or someone you love – your family, pet, hobby, exercise, a good film (free from adverts) a new project, course or an uplifting book…with healthy happy feelings.  Take a look at my new book: 9 Simple Steps for Happiness, with quotes, quick tips and easy fun processes that help you to be a Healthier, Happier You!

11.  Prepare for sleep:  Write down three lists.  1.  Get on paper anything you are anxious about.  2.  Write three things you wish to achieve the following day.  3.  Write 3 things you appreciate about you, your partner, each child, parent and anyone who is upsetting you.

12. Listen to a relaxation meditation as you drift off to sleep to soothe you into deep peaceful blissful sleep.

Can Stress cause IBS?

Do you have IBS symptoms? Irritible Bowel Syndrome is a label used to describe bloating, stomach discomfort, constipation or diarrhoea.

Stress   IBS can be caused or aggravated by eating in a stressful frame of mind.  Enzymes are needed to digest your food and enzymes are blocked by the stress hormone cortisol.  Therefore stress leads to poor digestion, food intolerance, IBS and other imbalances.

Good feelings helps to create calm digestion.  Most people can think back to a ‘happy holiday’ with relaxed, calm feelings and remember that they were able to eat and drink all sorts of different foods that they would not have been able to at home.

If the gut has a memory so you can see how food intolerances, sensitivities, stomach bloating can be linked to stress.

Can you reset your gut memory? 

Definitely.

How to create a calm comfortable gut?

1.  Re-programme gut memory with happy, calm feelings

2.  Re-programme your beliefs that support happy, calm feelings

3.  Re-programme your ‘triggers’ and ‘behaviours’ so that you can relax and enjoy a healthy, balanced lifestyle that includes anything with good feelings.

Are you sensitive to stress or sugar?

Sugar and spice might create little girls that are nice, but sugar and stress creates distress in the form of weight gain.  

Are you sensitive to stress or sugar?  Sugar is added to so many foods that you may have been consuming more than you realised.  In addition, stress has become a ‘normal’ state which contributes to extra sugar being dumped into the blood stream and converted back into fat around the middle.    Stress and sugar levels are in a state of constant rebalancing.  Too much of any results in hormone imbalance – cravings – more weight (especially round the middle) and more stress!

How can stress spike sugar levels in the blood? ~  Feeling pressured or overwhelmed would do it.  Sleep deprivation is another serious stress affecting most parents!    Stress linked to  work pressures, not enough time, dissatisfaction with self,  body image, money worries, comparing self to others, feelings of ‘not enough’, unhappiness, anger,  frustration, guilt, blame….  consider now, what are your current stressors?

Rate yourself out of 10, with 10 feeling very stressed and 0 feeling neutral – how stressed have you felt over the last month?
Anything over 5 is too high.  Find one thing you can do to release this stress within the next few hours?

Do you have  fat around your middle but don’t know why?
This is another symptom of stress and food sensitivity, often caused by eating whilst stressed.

To find out how I can help you, get in touch with Suzi on 07836 635233 and leave your name, number and a brief message and you will be contacted within 48 hours.

“If you are insterested in learning more, read on…”

So why does stress cause sugar sensitivity?  Stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline spike sugar levels.  Your gut has a memory….so you may have become sensitive to sugar during this time without realising.  An explosive argument can be an approx equivalent of about 5 bars of chocolate.

Stress – Sugar Sensitivity – Weight gain ~  Stress not only causes your blood sugar levels to fluctuate, spike and gain weight.  The resulting crash in sugar causes sugar cravings, having you reach for the chocolate, carbs, sweets…All of this  is a core contributor to food intollerances, especially sugar sensitivity.

If that wasn’t enough, your gut makes associations  with the foods you are eating  to the ‘unhappy’ stress you are feeling and REMEMBERS….

Enzymes are needed to digest your food and enzymes are blocked by the stress hormone cortisol.  Stressful feelings = poor digestion, food intolerance, IBS …. more stress.  Good feelings = easy, comfortable, calm digestion.

Can you reset your gut memory? 

Yes – definitely.

How to create a calm comfortable gut

1.  Re-map gut memory associated to stress

2.  Re-map your beliefs associated to stress

3.  Relax and enjoy a healthy, balanced lifestyle that includes sugar, in fact anything with good feelings.

Dancing Therapy

Dancing Therapy

Dancing is brilliant mindfulness practice if you just relax and feel the music.

Structured, choreographed and freestyle dancing including tango, ballroom or salsa, boosts mental focus, clarity and concentration.

As well as a fun way to boost your health and energy, dancing can also be another easy way to increase ‘mindfulness’ as you tune into the pleasure, freedom and connection with your partner.

If however you feel just too exhausted at the end of a long day and lack energy to go out, then you are going to love Suzi’s powerful refresh and relax hypnosis that can add another two hours of energy to your day.

 

Does stress cause weight gain?

Does stress cause weight gain?  Are you noticing more weight around your middle? After you have ruled out pregnancy or a huge dinner, a significant reason people gain weight is because stress releases cortisol which also increases blood sugar. When the stressful event is over, you still have a high level of blood sugar and the excess glucose becomes stored as fat.

Stress is a natural response to a threat, ‘perceived’ or imagined fear. But constant ‘stressing’ is a habit behaviour that harms your health, energy and beautiful body. Like any habit, it can be retrained into something more preferable.

So, if you are needing some stress relief and stress management help, get in touch.  Suzi sees private clients one-to-one in Kent and London W1.

Hypnosis for Vibrant Energy & Weight Loss

Hypnosis for Vibrant Energy & Weight Loss

The stress caused by lack of motivation can get in the way of your goal achievement.  If your energy and enthusiasm just isn’t there, what can you do?  Hypnosis can identify and remove blocks and beliefs that keep you stuck doing the same things.  Exercise is a powerful energy booster, so how can you get started?   Rapid-Health Lifestyle Coaching and Weight Loss Programmes will provide you with the resources, strategies and subconscious new beliefs that motivate your vibrant energy workouts.

Exercise improves brain performance, sharpens your memory and helps to ease some of the ageing process. Research has shown that exercise can slow or help prevent heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis (bone loss) and loss of muscle mass.

Rotating the following three styles of exercise as part of your routine, no matter how brief, will transform your body strength, tone, stamina, mood, self esteem and confidence.  We are hard wired to move towards pleasure and move away from pain so it is vital to associate massive pleasure to anything you really want to introduce into your vibrant energy health regime.

“I personally enjoy an extremely varied exercise regime.  I don’t allow the gym to dictate to me.  I choose to push myself some weeks and really blast the gym.  Other weeks I might focus of something else like dancing. Another week might be racket sports and some weeks I cycle extensively.   This honours my ‘Variety’ value and keeps me fresh and eager.”

Each week I include some of the following three 

1. A little cardio such as a brisk walk, jog, run, cycle, swim, skipping, dancing, 10 mins of on the spot intensive exercise or interval training (1 min intervals of ‘all out’ exertion) will increase your stamina and lower your resting heart rate if practised consistently….adding years of quality life. I also like racket sports such as badminton and tennis.”

2. Once you have used the cardio to help lose any excess weight, a little resistance training with weights or body weight will improve your strength, tone, flatten your tummy, sculpt your arms and speed up your metabolism.  The more muscle mass you have, the more fat your body burns while resting.  Every other week I do some early morning sessions at the gym.”  

3. A few yoga or pilates postures will stimulate your internal organs, improve digestion and bowel movements, improve pelvic floor and core strength, which prevents leaks in later life and protects your back.

I like Body Balance and Yoga mostly.”

Exercise will not only speed up your metabolism, improve wellbeing, mood; reduce PMT, IBS and stress hormones, it is proven to contribute to a vibrant energy lifestyle, physical strength and wellbeing.  Exercise can improve your mode by releasing all those ‘feel good’ hormones – exercise is amazing!

You will not only improve your strength, flexibility and shape, you will gain the motivation and momentum to support your new and exciting Vibrant Energy Lifestyle.
