When dealing with pandemics like the COVID-19 coronavirus, many people focus only on their physical health.
But that leaves out a crucial part of your overall well-being: your mental and psychological health.
Not many realise it, but your mental health directly affects your physical health.
And in times of a health crisis like today, you need to take care of your mind just as much as your body.
One of the best ways to do that is with hypnotherapy.
The Problem with Stress and Anxiety Amid the Coronavirus
Chronic stress is known to weaken your immune system. Many people have long known this, but it’s something that many don’t take seriously enough.
Simply put, the more stressed and anxious you are, the weaker your immune system will be.
And if your immune system is weak, it will be less capable of fighting off viruses, germs, and other bodily invaders. This is bad news during this coronavirus outbreak.
With a weakened immune system, your body will be less able to fight COVID-19 if you ever come across it.
How Hypnosis Can Help Your Body Fight
With the coronavirus spreading and all the scary news in the media, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with stress and anxiety.
But hypnosis can help you reduce your stress and anxiety, allowing you to keep your immune system as strong as it can be.
Here’s how hypnosis does it:
- Focus on positive thoughts
Hypnosis can help you access your subconscious mind and give it positive suggestions. This can help you focus on positive thoughts and ideas instead of lingering on the stressful state of the world around you.
- Create a relaxed space
Hypnosis allows you to enter a trance-like state where you can deeply relax and keep a calm and peaceful mindset. This can help you create a reliable space for rest and relaxation every day.
- Let go of worries
Worrying adds to your stress and anxiety. Hypnosis can help you focus on the present and keep you grounded so you’re not focusing your thoughts and energy on what could be or what might happen. This can also then help you make better and clearer decisions.
By helping reduce your stress and anxieties, hypnosis can effectively help boost your immune system and help your body be more capable of fighting off this coronavirus.
Hypnosis is a Tool, Not a Cure-All
It is important to remember that hypnosis is not a substitute for the fundamental ways of avoiding COVID-19.
Rather, it’s an additional tool in your arsenal to keep your body and immune system as healthy as possible.
To protect yourself from this coronavirus, it’s best to follow the World Health Organization’s guidelines:
- Wash your hands frequently
- Maintain social distancing
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
- Practice good respiratory hygiene – cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze
- Stay at home if you’re feeling sick
- Get proper medical attention if needed
- Follow the advice of your local health authorities
