Tips for self-hypnosis.
It is possible to achieve physical and mental relaxation by entering a hypnotic state. In this situation, scientific studies have shown that the body secretes soothing hormones instead of stress hormones. We make a sort of restart to the brain, starting it up and feeling like going on a relaxing holiday. This can be achieved by several techniques.
One of the basic techniques is muscle relaxation. Lie on your back or sit in a comfortable armchair in a quiet place. Each time, a separate muscle in the body is gradually reduced by a count of 1-10 and after you reach maximum contraction, relax the same muscle in the count from 10 to 1 until you feel that the tension was released and is completely calm.
This can be done in the following order:
- Clap your palms and release.
- Lift your legs and stretch and release them.
- Shrink your abs and buttocks and release.
- Lift your shoulders towards your ears and let go.
- Shrink the facial muscles and release.
Hypnosis can be used to improve mental or physical achievements. Scientific studies have shown that by entering a hypnotic state, we activate focused areas of the brain that are not activated in a normal state. Thus, increasing our ability to learn, assimilate, and change things. The brain becomes more flexible and programmable.
Tiger Woods, Mark Spitz and Mohammed Ali and other super-athletes used the technique to improve records. They put themselves in a hypnotic state in which the brain waves change and focused areas in the brain are activated with intensity.
