When stuff happens, do you get bitter or better?

Bitter or better... you always have a choice about how you look at situations however bad they are.

Going over and over an issue in your mind makes it worse.  It builds more connections between your neurones, and it causes physical changes in your brain that makes the issue harmful.

The thing is that stress, anger, anxiety, depression and bitterness build up to make you ill. 

They are a bit like a balloon that goes on getting bigger over time as you blow in more until it bursts. And that “burst” causes actual harm to your body as it triggers autoimmune disease, allergies and cancer

Do you go back to normal after something big happens? Or a long-term collection of stresses? Does a balloon regain its original shape when you let it down?

Once you realise you are dwelling on the wrong thing, choose to change the way you are looking at it.

20 or so years ago I used to be a real worry wort.

My former husband told me that if I didn’t have something to worry about, I would worry about that, and he was right.

The thing that finally tipped me over the edge was a diagnosis of breast cancer and that is when I seriously looked for help.  I went back to my original training in neurophysiology, and I started retraining as a hypnotherapist. 

My life has totally changed and so have the lives of so many of my clients.

Getting rid of habits like dwelling on grievances, smoking, overeating, and even depression are “simply’ a matter of changing your mind. You can change your mind by how you talk to yourself, or I can help you using hypnosis.

Take it easy and focus on being kind to yourself.
