As you sit comfortably reading this article, is your attention solely focused on these words, or are you sat there barely paying attention to the words on screen? You may have briefly let go of your troubles in order to read that last sentence, but soon enough, your mind will slip back into "busy mode" and you'll be thinking such things as:

How much time do I have to spare to read this article?I wonder if my plans will go ahead for the weekend?I wonder what'll happen if I continue reading and lose track of time?

The mind wanders constantly, from one distraction to another - it's a vicious cycle. Controlling the mind and relaxing is key to breaking this cycle. It's no wonder that stress accumulates with life moving at such a fast pace, dedicating ourselves to working hard, managing finances, remaining healthy - everything we think we should be doing.

Many people look for an answer elsewhere, they want to get more enjoyment out of life, achieve more and have an inner sense of happiness. What do we do to combat this usually? Pop a bottle of champagne? Turn on their iPad's or even take a light sleep on the sofa? We must ask ourselves, are these the most productive ways with dealing with stress? Is killing brain cells with alcohol, the most productive way to achieve relaxation and forget our troubles? In an ideal world, we'd like to think so, but it's often not the case. The rising rates of people taking anti-depressants could suggest otherwise.

Many societies throughout the world, use hypnosis in a variety of different ways. Most are based around controlling the body into a state of relaxation and controlling the physical muscles till they are fully relaxed. Then you move on by concentrating on the breathing and letting the body and mind fall into a deep state of relaxation. The hypnotist can often use powerful imagery to help your brain imagine such things as strolling through a quiet countryside or descending an endless amount of stairs, usually repetitive scenarios that you find it easy to conjure. You then lose yourself in the scenario that you have imaged and almost feel like you are living the fantasy. There is a fine line between sleep and hypnosis in this situation - that is why it is preferred that you don't lay down on your bed for such activities.

Often relaxation can be used to tackle other problems in life, trouble sleeping is one of the most common problems that we go through. Sleeping and recharging the body is key to staying healthy, both physically and mentally. Hypnosis for insomnia is often a popular choice with people who use hypnotherapy as an aid in any aspect of their life. Using the relaxation techniques from the hypnotist can train the subconscious mind into not keeping you awake at night with worry or the stress that occurs as a result of insomnia. Another popular choice amongst hypnosis receivers, is help with addictions, most commonly cigarettes. Hypnosis to stop smoking can help heal the minds cravings and relax the hypnotic receiver, into not reaching for the cigarette packet at the earliest time. Often used to combat stress, smoking can be overcome with the help of hypnotherapy.
