Self-hypnosis & meditation aren’t the same, but they do share some very profound similarities in their abilities to reduce stress, improve health, and slow the effects of ageing. Just think of someone you know who has been through trauma or a stressful period of their life. Have you noticed how the experience aged them? Meditation & self-hypnosis slow the ageing process because they can reduce stress & even reverse the process.
So how does it work? In part, it reduces cortisol, one of the stress hormones released during the stress response. Cortisol can have many negative effects including weight gain and even a decrease in skin elasticity.
When stress triggers the fight or flight response, cortisol is released to protect us from predators. It’s a survival mechanism that works by getting into our skin so if we are attacked by a predator, we won’t be so tasty. Meditation & self-hypnosis reduce cortisol and flood you with bliss chemicals that give you a youthful glow.
Another anti-ageing benefit of self-hypnosis & hypnotherapy is better sleep. The phrase “sleep on it” refers to the very real way your body rids itself of stress while you sleep at night. Practising meditation or self-hypnosis during the day, allows your body to use that time for stress relief so that at night you can use sleep time just for sleep. And when we are well-rested, we both look and feel better.
