Many people suffered from anxiety when returning to work after the Corona Virus pandemic. There is no doubt that our lives were turned upside down by the pandemic and many of us had to adapt to a more isolated way or working. We may have felt lonely or even abandoned in the early stages of lockdown, but human beings are very resilient and adaptable and, before long, many were reporting positively on working from home and enjoying the relaxation of dress codes and timed breaks.
Everyone is different of course, but if you are feeling anxious or nervous about returning to your workplace, it is important to address the specific thoughts and emotions that are leading to this heightened state of anxiety.
This is where Hypnotherapy can be invaluable. During a hypnosis session you are in an extremely relaxed state, known as “trance” and both your mind and body become quiet and comfortable. Your hypnotist will guide you into this deep relaxation and will know when to begin to work with your unconscious mind to address the causes of your anxiety.
Focusing on the Positive
It is natural for human beings to focus on the negative aspects of any form of change. It is part of our survival mechanism and just because you feel nervous or have butterflies at the thought of returning to work does not mean that something is wrong. However, if you are experiencing some of the more unpleasant symptoms of extreme anxiety it would help you to see a Hypnotherapist so that you have the resources to deal with it. Hypnosis is an ideal intervention for turning negative thoughts and feelings into positive ones by tapping directly into the unconscious mind and replacing unhelpful thoughts patterns with beneficial ones.
