Anxiety affects millions of people around the world. If you struggle with anxiety, you are likely familiar with the physical sensations. Your heart begins to pound, and you cannot concentrate. Your thoughts race, and you develop tunnel vision. You might feel cold or sweaty. Some people who have anxiety experience sensations of impending doom. All in all, anxiety is intensely uncomfortable and can affect your ability to function effectively. With hypnotherapy for anxiety, you can get relief and move through your life more comfortably and confidently.
What is Anxiety?
Anxiety disorders are among the most common mental disorders in the world. People tend to develop these disorders early in life and can suffer from significant impairments as a result. Symptoms can include:
- Nervousness or restlessness
- Feelings of panic or worry
- Increased heart rate or breathing
- Sweating or trembling
- Weakness or fatigue
- Difficulty concentrating
- Difficulty sleeping
- Gastrointestinal symptoms
These symptoms stem from your body’s natural fight-or-flight response, which is triggered when your body senses a danger. Your body reacts the same regardless of whether the threat is real or imagined. You end up feeling stressed and anxious often or even all the time. With hypnosis for anxiety, you can calm that response and learn to feel more at peace and comfortable all day long. UpNow’s hypnosis for anxiety app makes the process simple and easy.
Using Hypnosis for Anxiety
UpNow’s anxiety relief hypnosis app can help you change the automatic responses that create anxiety. While the fight-or-flight response is natural, much of what triggers it is based on subconscious signals. You learn to associate various events with danger or fear, which sets off your fear and worry. While you might logically know that public speaking is not a life-threatening event, your body responds as though it is. Hypnosis for anxiety can help you reframe and rehearse your fears and put them into perspective. You can use our hypnosis for anxiety app to calm your mind and body and feel more comfortable in virtually any scenario.
The autonomic nervous system, which is divided into the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, is directly linked to the fight-or-flight response. When you are anxious, the sympathetic nervous system sends out hormonal messages, including adrenaline, cortisol, and other hormones, that dilate the blood vessels, speed the heart rate, increase your breathing, and increase glucose levels. Your non-essential bodily functions decrease so that your body’s energy can be shifted to essential functions.
This cascade of effects is entirely automatic, but our anxiety relief hypnosis app can help you take control with remarkable results. Research shows that hypnosis can help regulate the autonomic nervous system and increase activity in the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS). The PNS acts as a braking system on the fight-or-flight response so that you can feel calmer faster.
Transforming your Thinking through Hypnotherapy for Anxiety
UpNow’s hypnosis for anxiety app works to change thinking patterns and mindsets that contribute to anxiety. Many times, our worries and irrational thinking are driving our anxiety. This is all subconscious; our conscious minds are not in control. Our subconscious minds are responding based on previous experiences and memories and producing an automatic response: fear and anxiety.
Conventional techniques can give you conscious tools and strategies that address the fear and anxiety, but they cannot conquer the subconscious issues that drive them. With hypnosis, you can untangle the subconscious motivations that drive your anxiety and learn to face life fearlessly and confidently.
