Hypnotherapy for happiness and contentment

Hypnotizability-dependent modulation of the changes in heart rate control induced by upright stance.

Subjects with high (Highs) and low (Lows) susceptibility to hypnosis show differences in the sensory-motor integration for postural control and in the cardiovascular response to stress and experimental pain. Aim of the experiment was to assess whether the cardiac response to gravity-related stimulation depending on changes in the body position were different in the two groups. Thus, heart rate (HR) and heart rate variability (HRV) were evaluated in sitting and upright position in Highs and Lows. Position-related HRV changes were studied in the time (statistical indexes, Poincaré Plot) and frequency (spectral analysis) domain. Results indicated that upright stance was associated with similar changes in heart rate and different modulation of HRV in the two groups. The association of time and frequency domain analyses allowed hypothesizing different control mechanisms as responsible for the cardiac response to upright stance in Highs and Lows, likely due to a different role of the Very Low Frequency (VLF) spectral component of HRV in the two groups. The results are in line with previous findings indicating a natural protection of Highs against cardiovascular events and suggest that the Highs' cardiac function might be less impaired by microgravity than the Lows' one.

Don’t Let Worry Control your Life

Why worry about the things that we can’t control? But we do. Our superior brain allows us to anticipate. This is often to our advantage as it allows us to plan ahead and adapt to what we think may happen. However, when our imagination is out of control, this same tool will cause us misery. At that point it often needlessly activates our fight-flight mechanism. This in turn makes us unhappy and can eventually damage our immune system.

Unlike others, people who excessively worry have learned this behavior over time. It could even have been caused by a family member or friend who...

Bullying at your workplace

Some sources estimate that over one third of US workers are readily bullied at work. This is surprising because we normally associate bullying at something that happens during our youth. Bullying is a form of dominance play. It is used to allocate essential survival resources as well as resources involving relationships and self-fulfillment. What we're finding is this dominance play continues to into our adulthood. Furthermore, the perpetrators are often people who have been previously bullied and never received adequate counseling or other psychological care. Yes, victims of bullying often...

Calm your Stress Away

Good stress puts wind in our sails. It makes things happen. However, when we fail to balance our lives, excessive negative stress can make our existence a living hell. When we lack confidence that we can handle a situation our brain and body go into a defensive, fight-flight reaction. The major organs of our body cease to function adequately and our immune system becomes suppressed. When stress never lets up, this chronic condition can make do more than ruin our happiness and relationships. It can also destroy our health.
