All the indoor fins.Neurotransmitters are our body’s chemical messengers.
We have billions of them and these little guys are always hard at work doing big things like keeping our brains running, managing our breathing, heartbeat, and our concentration; and they also affect our perceptions of fear, mood, pleasure, and joy.
Let’s have a look at endorphins.
Endorphins help us to manage our pain but also help us experience pleasure, and are released when we get injured, experience stress, or when we eat, exercise, or have sex.
You’ve likely heard of an exercise high or a runner’s high (for me I only get this when it’s over 😆), but I do understand that they can cause a euphoric feeling, and people when they get this burst of endorphins, feel awesome.
Lucky for those of us who struggle with getting our endorphins from exercise 😆, there are other ways we can boost our endorphin levels naturally.
Indulging in chocolate, listening to music, having a laugh, or getting out in the sunshine, are all great ways to get more endorphins in your life.
Studies have also shown that we can increase endorphins through meditation/hypnosis and even essential oils such as lavender, rosemary, citrus fragrances, ylang ylang, & frankincense.
If you have been feeling a little less than awesome lately, I can help. I encourage the use of essential oils during a meditation/hypnosis practice not only because it makes you smell like the heavens, but it is also profoundly relaxing, raising your endorphin levels naturally, all while assisting with the subconscious encoding process during hypnosis.
I love lavender so much that I always include a free hypnotic mist in every Hypnokit™ (for all of my face to face UK clients) to use during their sessions & practice. And you know what else? Initial Consultations are absolutely free and you get a free relaxation track to keep, no strings attached.
