Can stress make you fat?

This article explains how chronic stress disrupts our sleep and our blood sugar levels. This leads to increased hunger and comfort eating.
And that then leads to further disrupted sleep, even higher levels of stress and even more disrupted blood sugars. In time, this can lead not only to unhealthy levels of body fat, but also to type-2 diabetes.

Hypnosis – Common myths

MYTH – You can be hypnotised to do things against your will
FACT – The hypnotherapist is merely a guide or facilitator. He / she can’t make you do anything against your will.

MYTH – A person can get stuck in a trance forever.
FACT – No one has ever been stuck in a hypnotic trance. Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state that we enter and exit during the normal course of a day.

MYTH – A person under hypnosis is asleep or unconscious
FACT – Whilst the hypnotic state might resemble sleep from the physical point of view: slowed breathing, eyes closed, muscles relaxed, activity decreased, from a mental standpoint the client is generally relaxed and is keenly alert and in a comfortable state where the person can think, talk and move about if needed.

MYTH – I can’t be hypnotised
FACT – The truth is that everyone can be hypnotised. As a matter if fact, each one of us is using hypnosis in some form every single day of our lives, either consciously or unconsciously. We are experiencing some form of trance-like hypnotic state each time we engage our imagination, each time our attention is focussed. Strength of mind really has little to do with it. Hypnosis helps a person gain greater control over both mind and body, it can help a person develop a stronger mind.
