Relax the Mind Improve Your Life

Relax the mind and improve your life – easy to say and it’s easy to do – when you know how.

Stress: the cause of numerous health issues

This time of year you are likely to encounter a cold, the ‘flu’, chest infections, sinus infections and sore throats to name a few or someone close to you will develop the symptoms. These bugs and nasty infections get into us when our immune system is a little weak or overworked and no matter what you do they will have their time irritating and weakening you further. Taking the time to relax is paramount for a healthy life. Unfortunately we have lost the art of relaxation (if we ever knew how to). Taking time to relax the mind can improve your life.

Stress is often seen as something linked just to our mood or emotions, we are at work and things are not going right, a particular task is outside of your comfort zone maybe you feel threatened and you feel ‘stressed’ and can’t wait to get home for a beer, glass of wine or grab a bar of chocolate.

The mind matters, getting ‘stressed’ triggers a host of chemical reactions in the organs of the body,  for example to produce more adrenaline. This (adrenaline) is generated in times of fear and the typical situation is often referred to as the ‘flight or fight’ mode . Adrenaline could be seen as the body’s supercharger it gets you going and has been known to push people to do extraordinary physical feats outside of their normal capability. At the time of an accident for example people have been known to lift up a car to release someone who is trapped, when in normal circumstances they don’t have anything like that strength available.

Imagine what state your body and mind would be in if you were feeling that adrenaline rush every few hours during your working day!  And in many, many cases that’s exactly what is happening. If the mind and body keeps pumping extra amounts of chemicals like adrenaline in response to the stresses being perceived by the mind on a regular basis eventually the body can collapse or shut down. There is a cost to this activity and one is that our poor old immune system gets battered and weakened. When you put up your feet for a rest so does the immune system, it can’t cope it almost switches off  and hey presto you have a sore throat, a high body temperature or something more serious. This is why we have to consider ‘relax the mind’ and ‘improve your life’.

So take a look at how to manage the stress in your life, take a break for 5 minutes from the computer screen, have a good laugh with friends or colleagues, have a quiet ‘day dream’ of a great memory, put into perspective the threats in your job. Above all learn how to breath correctly.  Is ‘failure not an option’? I can’t recall any UK bankers being taken out and shot after their catastrophic mismanagement of their business! Perhaps we say YES too often in our jobs when sometimes a reasoned explanation can take undue pressure away. For example “Yes, I can do XYZ I will have to put ABC on hold of course, so which way do you want to play it?” Give it a try.

Too often people have hit that downward spiral in life where darkness prevails and even the small things in life seem to be out of reach. Don’t be unkind to yourself and take control while you can. Good luck and remember your mind does matter, preserve it for you.

JCB Groundhog 4×4 Speak to John

Helping people runs in our family, I offer Healing-Freedom™ and Hypnotherapy while my brother works in a commercial position for Gunn JCB selling the brilliant JCB Workmax a small 4×4 utility vehicle also known as a Groundhog.  John is good natured and like me tries very hard to help people where ever he can.

The JCB workmax is especially good at helping during the winter months when adapted with a snow plough it can keep your important access areas clear and with a spreading attachment can grit as it advances.  You don’t have to take my word for it just have a look at the many clips on YouTube.

So if you need to keep your business mobile this winter or you are responsible for public and pedestrian areas and have important access points that need to be kept clear of snow and ice consider speaking to John about the many merits of the JCB Workmax range. A small investment now could deliver many benefits in the coming months and for years ahead.

For further valuable information about the JCB Workmax contact John Noon on 07725 069446 or visit www.gunn-jcb.com

 

Good Mental Health

Some years ago an American T.V. comedy programme called ‘Frasier’ (currently being repeated on UK’s Channel 4) featured the line ‘wishing you good mental health’. The reason for this was down to the character Frasier who was a psychotherapist and a radio personality with his own ‘call in’ programme when he would analyse caller’s personal issues, at the end of the programme he would sign off with ‘wishing you good mental health’.

Why you might ask am I talking about a T.V. comedy? Well here in the UK there still seems to be a ‘stigma or taboo’ about ‘mental health’, if you mention your deepest most inner feelings to anyone other than your closest partner, spouse, relative or friend the chances are you will be given a sideways look and kept at a safe distance. One of the biggest growth areas in the British leisure industry recently has been membership of the gym or ‘fitness centre’.  So we are happy to have a go at keeping our physical aspects ‘fit’ why not keep our mental or mind aspects ‘fit’ and in top shape at the same time?

Modern life throws many pressures on us all with ‘stress’ (or too much stress) being detrimental to our bodily functions.  I know people who go to the gym everyday to keep up the fitness regime and to be fit to cope with work. While working out they wear head phones to keep up with messages from the office or in case their boss calls for the latest data or to listen to the latest business analysis, ‘commitment’ is it a word or a way of life?

So do good levels of general fitness help us to deal with pressure, stress etc? Well it must help, I think that is accepted by most people, so what about our mind doesn’t that need help from time to time? How do we get the help we need when a problem spins in our heads and there is some emotional ‘fall out’?  How do we cope with the demand for increased sales when a recession is on?  How do we cope when we have more money going out than is coming in? Alcohol, drugs, cigarettes, food and ill health all become the ‘crutches’ for many who have no way to safely off load or overcome mind challenging issues.

I help people with these challenges through Healing Freedom™, Reiki and Hypnotherapy there is no smoke and mirrors, long gowns, chiming bells or magical apparitions just me being open and honest and trying to help. Something as simple as learning how to relax deeply can have an effect on the way you view issues and situations that are thrust upon you. So my intention to promote ‘Body and Mind’ fitness sessions with a friend who operates his own private fitness centre could provide welcome relief to some, if not all, of his clients.

Thank you reading my blog and in the words of  Frasier Crane “wishing you good mental health”.

Help at hand

My friend who set me on the path of helping and healing through an open mind and belief in myself has returned to England so it will be great to catch up with her soon and share some experiences. Eilean I hope you are settling in and getting used to English country life once again, welcome home. Eilean introduced me to Reike and Healing Freedom™ a few years ago and I have had great comfort and enjoyment from those two practices ever since.

The response from clients is always enlightening and often uplifting. We can all do something to help each other in many ways, just a simple genuine smile can pass on a great feeling, try it, there is no pain involved and it will do you good at the same time. Apparently it takes less muscles to smile than frown and smiling creates a feel good factor inside you so it’s worth trying!

I find that the modern fast life we are involved with doesn’t always bring out the best in us so when things are getting a little too much find a quiet corner, take a deep breath hold it for a count of 6 and breath out through pursed lips almost like a whistle do this 3 or 4 times and it will help you calm yourself and think a little clearer.

New Year New Hope

Now we have moved into 2011 what can we expect from life, you only get out from what you put in comes to mind. Really it is down to the individual to make things happen in life yet we often need some help along the way and we shouldn’t be shy of asking for some direction or advice.
Often circumstances outside of our control cause unhappiness and distress, overcoming these situations offers a challenge to some and a complete obstruction to others.
If your self-confidence is low then a negative feeling can wash over you and you fail to see or find a solution. Lifting your confidence and feeling good about yourself for many people is difficult to achieve without the help of someone to lift up their spirits and find the inner strength that does exist within us.
I hope 2011 will be good to you and if you need a little help then have a look through my web pages and give Healing Freedom™ a chance.

Pain in the foot

Since last writing I have endured the discomfort of ‘cellulitis’ in my foot and ankle which has played havoc with my life both at work and play. Being unable to put weight on your foot and getting a jolt up the leg when you do has been very draining needless to say that trying to offer clients the chance of hypnotherapy has been impossible. Antibiotics are supposed to be the main method of resolving this infection having taken 2 courses of the things I still have issues with the ankle being swollen and hot. All I can say is that it has given me a minute taste of what people with serious pain must encounter and it will without doubt spur me on to offer clients pain relief through hypnotherapy and Healing-Freedom™ whenever I can. I really am looking forward to resuming normal service once the infection has subsided and my life returns to the (not so) normal. If anyone out there is suffering from the same type of problem you have my deepest sympathy and understanding.

Hypnotherapy & Hypnosis

Bill Noon Hypnotherapy & Hypnosis – hypnosisnorthwest

My continuing path towards helping people has now been strengthened with the addition of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy.

Following my initial training which has taken from February 2010 to 2011 to complete I have now in 2012 completed further training to an advance level.  I’m now on the road to helping people help themselves. Helping anyone to discover their inner strength or to see life in a more meaningful way is very rewarding. This is not magic or trickery just technique and sensitivity.

Bill the Hypnotherapist

Today I have completed the first (and largest) section of training to become a Hypnotherapist. I can now practice Hypnotherapy and offer people help in a great number of ways and learn a great deal more of life. Although I’m qualified the training doesn’t stop, there are specialist areas in Hypnotherapy that require specific in depth training and I’m looking forward to the continuing journey.

The energy and goodwill I have received certainly has helped me to take in the Hypnotherapy training. Above all having two great teachers Paul Peace and Karen Bartle from the Academy of  Advanced Changework in Sheffield, has given me the experience of a lifetime.

Talking to my colleagues on the Hypnotherapy training course we seemed to arrive at a conclusion that life dictates what will happen. What I mean is that why in the autumn of my life have I been fortunate enough to discover energy healing, Reiki and Hypnotherapy amongst other things to help me to help other people. At the same time meeting new people of differing ages (most of them much younger than me) who have arrived at a similar place with their own stories to tell and undertaken training to become Hypnotherapists.  Life is a wonderful thing which we should enjoy and help others enjoy whenever we can.

Hypnotherapy Training – Almost There!

Looking back 12 months I couldn’t imagine the twists and turns that have happened to my life. You might think that when you reach your 20s, 30s or even 40s that you know everything about anything,  recently I’ve been surprised and amazed by the things I have learned about me!

Healing Freedom™ and Reike have been real eye openers introducing me to the many aspects of true life and energy, without these the last 12 months would have been particularly difficult.

Now I’m well on my way to becoming a Hypnotherapist and continue my wish to help poeple to help themselves when life is not balanced. I think most people have a time in their lives when they need a little help, guidance or coaching to find their energy button. This is about to become my full time profession I’m excited yet a little nervous which is understandable considering that 8 or 9 months ago I had a paid fulltime job and the protection of employment now I’m on my own. Not completely on my own I have a great supportive wife and some friends that you couldn’t dream up who have for years been inspirational, caring and genuine and I have to say they have given me energy and hope beyond my dreams.

So I will let you know when I’m there and ready to go with Hypnotherapy.

Hay fever the curse of summer

Hay fever a growing problem

Here in England we have been enjoying warm, sunny days the stuff that makes a memorable summer, blue, blue skys and bright energy giving sunshine. The green grass and rich textured leaves of the numerous trees are full of life that just gives you a big lift after the cold damp winter.

Sadly for many of us, both young and old, ‘Hay  fever’ appears right on cue with summer to throw us into a world of sneezing, itchy running eyes, runny nose and constant mouth and throat irritations. Over the years I have tried many remedies and relief giving concoctions with varying degrees of success and failure. I don’t particularly like modern over the counter drugs, from my own experience they do one job, say stop you sneezing only to compromise your breathing and if like me you suffer from asthma this can become quite stressful and upsetting which compounds your symptoms.

Prevention is often an answer to the issue – avoid visiting gardens, parks, green open spaces, trees, don’t go outside unless you really have to, miss out on summer, stay in an air-conditioned bubble if you have one – just a few of the things that might help!

A good friend of mine has recently found relief in ‘tapping’ and swears by the positive results (tapping in specific points on the body as described in E.F.T. the Emotional Freedom Technique). He previously relied on nasal sprays and assorted  antihistamine drugs to get him through the day.

By using my own methods  I get through the uncomfortable stages that try my strength with some positive thoughts, a session of self help through Healing Freedom ™ uses the energy fields to re-tune my defences in some way making me feel better in my mind and stronger to cope with the irritations of hay fever. When I find the complete cure for hay fever I will let you know.
