Employers around the globe are increasingly focusing their sights on workplace wellness. Their goals range from employee wellness and job satisfaction to increased productivity and reduced bottom line. Traditionally, workplace wellness programs have included conventional health offerings, such as smoking cessation, weight loss, and fitness programs. However, many employers are taking an outside-the-box approach that includes new options and comprehensive therapies. Hypnosis fits well with these novel approaches and can help boost employee morale, tackle stress, overcome bad habits, and improve work satisfaction.
The Benefits of Self-Hypnosis
Online hypnosis offers many benefits to your team, regardless of the size of your office or workspace, and research backs it up. In one study, researchers found that short self-hypnotherapy breaks at work could be as effective as power naps, which are not always effective or appropriate in all workplaces. During the study, employees at a call center listened to hypnotherapy audios during short breaks over a four-week period. At the end of the period, the employees experienced greater work satisfaction, significantly less fatigue, and had an improvement in their mood. Workers also felt as though they were better prepared to manage increased call volumes and felt less stressed with their workload, enjoying greater confidence and focus as they worked.
In another study, Latvian textile workers suffered from joint pain and stress due to workload and undesirable workplace conditions. Over a three-month period, one group of workers participated in multiple hour-long hypnosis sessions. Another group was taught to use self-hypnosis and encouraged to practice daily for 10 to 15 minutes using a CD with both an induction and suggestions. While at the beginning of the study the textile workers experienced pain significant enough to interfere with their mood, work, and daily activities, the audios helped reduce their pain significantly. It also decreased muscle fatigue and psychogenic tension while increasing their quality of life.
