Did you know that parts of your brain actually lose volume and shrink when exposed to the effects of stress over a sustained period of time?
It's true. Brain neurons in the prefrontal cortex and hippocampus shrink. These are the parts of your brain responsible for problem solving, emotional regulation, creating memories, and regulating your metabolism. The results of a 2012 research study describing this very thing can be found on Psychology Today.
When stress builds up and is not disposed of properly you may begin to experience sleeping problems, anxiety, lack of motivation, weight gain, and high blood pressure. To combat this on a day-to-day basis, I teach breathing techniques and guided visualizations that you can use in a matter of seconds to turn off your body's stress response. Hypnosis can also help you respond differently to the words, people, and situations that trigger you and cause your stress response.
