Laughing makes you unforgettable!

Although the title may sound a bit exaggerated, the fact is that laugh can make us unforgettable. Laughter moves about 430 muscles in our body, activates our diaphragm (especially when we laugh out loud) and moves 12 litres of air to our lungs instead of the 6-liter move in a normal situation, besides, laughter strengthens our heart, increases blood flow, by relaxing it soothes muscles in the arteries, so we reduce blood pressure and even better Invigorates our muscles. In conclusion, laugh is a very healthy exercise!

There are times when it is impossible to laugh, and even for many can be a little insulting our laughter, that leads to think that we’re making fun of something or someone; or simply it is misunderstood because there is no obvious reason to laugh.

But even laughing at the most “inappropriate” times is necessary, especially in those moments of intense stress, work pressure, depression, and although it may sound crass, it is good to laugh when we are suffering with serious illnesses, because when we laugh we stimulate a part of our brain that secretes a substance known as “the substance of happiness” that relaxes our body, stimulates our positive thoughts, alienates us from the harmful effects of stress, lets us see life with another hue and may our laughter remain as an unforgettable memory in the mind of those people around us.

A daily smile every day, can improve even our worst day, and if on that particular day we laugh with more force, even if we have no reason to laugh, we will be able to push away the negative results and the pressure created by the bad time and transform it into a positive lesson of our life, that something that already happened and only stayed as a little pothole on our way.

However, if what we want it’s to give our mind a real rest, laughter therapy is the solution.  It stimulates the diaphragm, which is the centre of our soul and health, and if we stimulate our “soul” we improve our overall health, promoting physical health and increasing our quality of life. Additionally, we leverage our creativity and imagination, we relax and disconnect from our problems, stimulating you to think positively and raising our self-esteem. It makes us feel more motivated and closer to people.  It also makes you breathe better and act with positivism, while teaching us to see problems in a more critical and analytical way, helping us to lose the sense of the ridiculous and especially allowing us to accept ourselves as the person we really are, creative and full of joy individuals.

 

“A merry heart is like medicine, but a broken spirit dries the bones” (Proverbs 17:22)

So ask yourself, when was the last time you laughed until your belly hurt you?

Social Anxiety / Professional Confidence - Public Speaking / Fear of Flying

"I'm now able to perform tasks that I thought were impossible a month ago"

I've suffered from constant anxiety for as long as I can remember, particularly from social anxiety and fear of public speaking, to the point that my office jobs were no longer manageable and I was very close to fall deeply into depression. I had very little self-confidence, despite having progressed in my career and achieved many of my professional and personal goals. However, I got to a point in which I wasn't able to progress any further due to my the constant fear of being evaluated and criticised by others, which paralysed me and stopped me from speaking up and being more visible. My day to day prior to the sessions was absolutely controlled by my anxiety and lack of confidence due to past experiences, mainly during my childhood. Having done a number of therapies before (eMDR, CBT) I was sceptical at first, but I wanted to give hypnotherapy and the BAGC6 a go. After around 13 sessions I can say that I'm in a much better place than when I started. My constant anxiety has hugely decreased, and I'm now able to perform tasks that I thought were impossible a month ago, like giving a speech in front of my colleagues without having a panic attack or simply socialising with new people at a party. My perspective on things is now different and I've gained new confidence which allows me to speak and interact with others without fear. Maria has been great in understanding my issues and creating a very tailored treatment (hypnosis, eMDR, etc) to tackle these. She's always been very determined and a firm believer in a full recovery which has been very helpful, particularly in moments when I wanted to give up. She's also giving me tools and techniques that I can use to manage emotions and to stay focused (like auto-hypnosis) and I'm using these almost on a daily basis to continue building on my confidence and resilience. As per the fear of flying, this is something that I still need to test, but I'm confident that I will have also overcome it in the same way that I've beaten my anxiety disorder. I can only be grateful to Maria for all her help and for believing in me since day 1, and totally recommend her treatment!

Thanks so much!
