Vapers, Vapers, and more Vapers – The Mysteries of the “Elf Bar” Disposable Vapes

People everywhere are now currently asking, “What is an Elf Bar?” and they also want to know, “Whether an Elf Bar is good and safe for you to smoke”, while the new Elf Bar craze slowly sweeps throughout the whole of the United Kingdom.

But what are these “Elf Bars” and other disposable vapes (which have been called the new and more healthy alternative to smoking traditional cigarettes), and are the younger generations finding them more attractive, and nicer and easier to smoke?

You might well have already seen some of them, these coloured tubes about the size of a packet of Polo mints that people all over the country are gripping onto. Elf Bars are not sweets, although they may look like one, but they are disposable vapes which can be bought very cheaply and which are chock full of sweet and readily available flavours when you smoke them.

Elf Bars, Geek Bars and Solo Bars are some of the more popular brands available, and they come in attractive flavours like “orange”, “kiwi”, “watermelon”, and “blueberry ice”. The popularity of these disposable vapes has shot up right across the country. The online vape platform called “Indejuice” said that they had seen a big increase in sales, and they said that vapes which had included “fruit” and “ice” flavourings made up 60 per cent of the sales.

You could vape a “blueberry ice” flavoured Elf Bar

People want to know whether Elf Bars and other disposable vapes are 100% safe to smoke. Disposable vapes like Elf Bars can often make you feel there’s nothing to worry about too much when you are smoking them. They are cheap, they are cheerful, they are disposable, they are easy to use and you get a wonderful uplift when you smoke them, and you do not mind if you happen to lose one. And because they come in such light colours and lovely “fruity” or “ice” flavours, you just do not worry about what harm they could possibly do to you. They are definitely not the same as, or anything like, a traditional cigarette, are they?

Or you could vape a “cherry flavoured” Elf Bar

A lecturer at the University of Chester, Dr Gareth Nye, disagrees with this. He said that there was limited evidence regarding disposable vapes, mostly with regard to the liquid people use to vape with, rather than the actual vaping device as these have continued to change over the last ten years.

He then said that, “e-cigarette liquid and smoke contain nicotine, and many of the same harmful toxicants and carcinogens as traditional cigarettes”, and we can assume that disposable vapes such as Elf Bars also have the same risks for similar health effects as in people who use e-cigarettes. These effects include long-term lung damage, cardiovascular damage, cancer, and certain metabolic changes”.

Dr Nye also said that, “While vapes and e-cigarettes do not contain the tar and carbon monoxide that are found in traditional cigarettes, there are still certain concerns over the chemicals which vapers are breathing in. He said that a study showed that e-cigarette users had similar build-ups of metals and chemicals such as benzene and toluene, which were causing the long-lasting lung damage, compared with those of traditional cigarette smokers.”.

Girl Vaping

He added, “Vaping was responsible for the increases in tooth decay, and in other dental and oral conditions, and has also shown signs of being linked to mouth cancers in the same way that traditional cigarette smoking does.”

He said that, “Inhaling chemicals into the lungs which were not meant to be there in the first place, starts a reaction from your immune system which damages your lung tissue. If you have damaged lung tissue you cannot get oxygen into your blood, and your heart has to work twice as hard, and the rest of your body will go into survival mode. The longer you do this, the worse it will be. I would not be surprised if there is a whole generation of 30-year-olds who have lung conditions in the next ten years”.

Elf Bars are cheap and cheerful and disposable. Therefore, are Elf Bars primarily aimed at younger people?

Dr Nye said that some people have raised concerns that the products might encourage the younger age groups to take up proper smoking with traditional cigarettes. Kieran Hynes, who is a former salesman for the tobacco industry giant British American Tobacco and also a vaper, said: “I think that the huge selection of fruity flavours such as “blueberry ice” has a mass appeal to the younger age groups”. Dr Nye then carried on to say that, even though Elf Bars were the better option than the traditional cigarettes, there is a worry concerning young people, that vapes and Elf Bars are 100 per cent safe, which is absolutely not true. Even versions of Elf Bars containing no nicotine are not safe”.

On TikTok, the Elf Bar craze has just under 700 million views and it is packed full of videos of young people using their Elf Bars and making fun out of their own addiction.

But even though the Elf Bar website requires users to declare they are 21 years old or more, it seems that the Elf Bars are getting into the hands of young people. The text actually reads: “There have been some reports of children managing to find some Elf Bars and used vapes lying around the local community where they live. However, there may be other ways children are getting hold of these that we do not know about”.

THE USE OF HYPNOSIS

Hypnosis is extremely useful for the treatment of addictions, such as smoking. If you decide to see a hypnotist because you are concerned and anxious about your addiction to smoking, whether it is smoking traditional cigarettes or vaping with elf bars, the hypnotist will see you either online or in an office. They will welcome you in a professional and courteous manner. They will then have a friendly and professional chat with you first, to find out what your particular problems are with regard to your addiction to smoking.

WHAT A HYPNOTIST DOES

The hypnotist will welcome you in a professional and courteous manner. They will have a friendly and professional chat with you first, to find out what your particular problems are with regard to your addiction to smoking. They will ask you things like whether your anxiety, stress and worry levels have increased and that could be why you are smoking or vaping so much more. They will then begin the hypnosis session.

They will talk with you for some time, very soothingly and comfortingly. After a while has passed they will automatically know when you have become deeply relaxed enough so that they can access your subconscious mind directly.

Once they have successfully been able to access it, they will talk to it as though they were talking to a very bright ten-year-old child. They will remove the old, out-dated set of instructions from it, and they will then replace the old set with a completely new set of instructions which it will be able to follow very easily. Your subconscious mind will thoroughly enjoy the process of having the old instructions removed and new ones put in their place. It will derive great comfort, a sense of ease and total peace of mind from this process.

When the hypnosis session has been drawn to an end, the hypnotist will fully waken you, and you will find that you are fully wide-awake, fully alert, and feeling really amazing and absolutely wonderful. You will also be aware that your wonderful sense of comfort, ease and total peace of mind has been fully and completely restored.

The Massive Change in the Law that will make the United Kingdom completely Smoke Free by 2030

A completely new change in the law is going to stop everyone smoking, and it is intended to make the United Kingdom totally smoke free by 2030 as part of a UK Government plan. This new law change will be introduced in plans to tackle the smoking habit, and it will also encourage people who normally smoke traditional cigarettes, to start vaping and use e-cigarettes instead. The Health Secretary, Mr Sajid Javid, is going to publish a damning report on the tobacco industry.

Although smoking rates are currently at their lowest ever level, it is commonly believed that there are currently around six million smokers in England, and the smoking habit is one of the largest causes of health disorders. The Government has reported that tobacco and smoking are the single largest causes of deaths that could have been prevented, and they said that 64,000 smokers have died from smoking in the year 2019 alone.

A Stack Of Cigarettes

“The Tobacco Control Plan”, which is going to be published later on this year, will be suggesting that the legal age to buy cigarettes should be raised up to 21. The legal smoking age, which is the legal age at which people can begin smoking, is currently now 18, and this might also be raised if Mr Javid puts the recommendations into effect. The report that has been commissioned by the Health Secretary, says that new taxes on tobacco company profits should also be backed.

The report has been drawn up by Mr Javed Khan, a former charity boss, who supports the “Polluters Pay” ideal. This means that all tobacco companies must pay for the cost of anti-smoking policies. When they were speaking about Mr Khan’s plans, a source said that, “The stance he has taken in the meetings which I have attended with him has been quite radical”.

Smoke From A Traditional Cigarette

It has been reported that Mr Khan wants to increase the legal age to 25, but it is expected that the age will probably be changed to 21. This change in the law comes after smoking amongst younger people, mostly aged between 18 and 30, suddenly shot up by 25% during the first Covid-19 lockdown, despite the fact that smoking rates have fallen steadily for the past 20 years as reported by the “Office for National Statistics”.

In addition to increasing the legal smoking age to 21, the UK Government is going to make vaping and e-cigarettes more easily obtainable rather than smoking traditional cigarettes. Putting taxes on the tobacco industry will also help to raise possibly as much as £700 million every year, which, it is hoped, could be used to provide e-cigarettes on the NHS to help British people quit the bad smoking habit.

A Girl Vaping

A UK Government insider said, “Mr Sajid Javid is interested in people’s health, and he is interested in attacking public health issues of all kinds. With regard to tobacco, right-wing MPs are very nervous about a “nanny state attack” of some kind”. The UK Government said that: “The Covid-19 pandemic showed up the health inequalities right across the country, and this included “smoking” which caused an intolerable burden on the poorest families and communities”.

Mr Khan finished off by saying that he was very pleased to be leading this review into such an important area of public health, being the change in the legal smoking age. He said that: “My independent findings will help to show up the main changes which in turn would help the UK Government achieve its ambition to be completely smoke-free by 2030”.

THE USE OF HYPNOSIS

If you decide to see a hypnotist because you are concerned and anxious about your addiction to smoking traditional cigarettes, and about the fact that you seem to be smoking more and more of them, and you also want to regain your sense of inner calm, your sense of comfort, your sense of ease, and your sense of total peace of mind, they may see you either online or in an office. You can also see a hypnotist if you want to give up e-cigarettes or vaping. They will welcome you in a professional and courteous manner. They will have a friendly and professional chat with you first, to find out what your particular problems are, because for example, your anxiety and stress levels may have increased and that could be the reason why you are smoking or vaping so much more.

After a while has passed, they will know when you have become deeply relaxed enough so that they can access your subconscious mind directly.

What you can do if your peace and quiet is being disturbed by your neighbour playing loud music on those warm, sultry summer days

Now that the United Kingdom is currently enjoying really warm weather, with the temperatures in double figures, many households will be thinking about having a few parties out in their garden during the warm months of summer.

Flowers in a Cottage Garden

What can you possibly do about it, if you are quietly enjoying your garden, perhaps doing an afternoon’s weeding, for example, and you are being disturbed by loud music emanating from your neighbour’s house?

What if you just want to sit quietly in the afternoon sun, with a good book, in a corner of your beautiful garden, enjoying a peaceful hour or two, and then suddenly your neighbour has decided to start playing some really loud, apparently deafening music? Is there anything that you can physically, actually do about it?

A Garden Party Barbecue

We are now going to look into whether you simply have to put up and shut up, and try and ignore the fact that your neighbour is playing really loud music, which is annoying you intensely. Is it really that much of a problem, that you simply cannot bear it any longer? Maybe it is driving you totally insane, and you are at your wits’ end trying to think of ways to stop the racket.

The Problem Of Loud Music

“Loud music” is something that even normal people can fall out about. Some people will often post on social media platforms such as Facebook in order to talk about the problem. If it is an absolutely huge dilemma for you, it could drive you to distraction. Sometimes you might come out of your house, hear the terribly loud music, and turn straight round, slamming the front door as you go back into your house again, because you just simply cannot bear it. You might even find yourself humming the song that they were playing in their house! Now, I have just thought of an idea myself while writing this, why not find a recording of their song, or make a recording of it yourself, and hastily play it somewhere near your front door so they would hear it, and just wait and see what happens.

Posts That Were Written On A Facebook Page

A person once posted on a Facebook page and explained the problem. He said, “Now we have had the first bit of blue sky and sunshine, and along comes the loud “bang bang” so-called music. This has been playing all the afternoon and it is carrying on. Why not try asking your neighbour yourself first, and see if they are going to be playing it all day long, and maybe all the evening? Maybe all night as well. This would be easier than making people feel they were in the wrong by knocking on their neighbour’s door and asking for the music to be turned down. After all, some of us work all hours, and we want to enjoy a peaceful and quiet day off out in the garden”. They added, “I always hate feeling awkward about something that is difficult to do, and I sometimes actually feel scared to ask the neighbour to kindly turn it down. After all, you might like your “music” very much, but just do not expect your neighbour to do so”.

People who made comments to this Facebook post, said things such as: “Now why don’t you lighten up, and stop making complaints about the small things?”.

Another said: “Selfish people who disturb other people’s peace and quiet with a lot of loud music when they’re just sitting quietly in their garden, and thus absolutely ruining their day off work, is not a small thing”.

Someone else said: “This might surprise you, but I actually enjoy it when my very nice neighbours play music when I am outside in the garden, on a beautifully sunny and warm day like today. After all, it saves me the bother of finding some nice music to play, and it saves me the cost of the electric. Sometimes a horrible tune comes on that I just do not like, or even hate, but I simply wait for the next one”.

You Really Do Have To Approach Your Neighbour Yourself In The First Instance

So exactly what should you do, if you are really unhappy about your neighbour’s loud music, when there is a lot of people saying, “Just go around to their house and ask them very politely to turn it down”? This is when you really do have to approach your neighbour in the first instance. One particular City Council in England said, “If your peace and quiet is being disturbed by noise such as loud music from a neighbour, the first thing you actually must do is to consider approaching them yourself. Explain to them very politely that you are being disturbed by their noise, and explain how much their loud music is affecting you. You might find having to do this is very difficult, but people are sometimes not aware that they are causing a problem, and nice people will be pleased to just reduce their noise level. But please, do approach doing this very carefully, if you think that your neighbour could react with anger to a complaint”.

What If Asking Your Neighbour Politely Does Not Get You Anywhere?

So, just what should you do, if your friendly chat with your neighbour does not get you anywhere? Then you may well have to take the problem to the next level.

Most of the issues over noise complaints are dealt with by the City Council, the District Council, or the Borough Council. Some complaints are dealt with by the Police, but these are only in certain special circumstances.

When To Approach The Council

The Council deal with noise that is likely to have an upsetting effect on a community, and this may include anti-social behaviour which may also be classed as a “noise nuisance”. This would include noise from a hi-fi or a television which is played at a very high volume. The Council would then need to decide if the music is being played at an excessively loud volume.

If you want to go ahead and make a formal complaint to your local Council, you can find all the details on their website. The Council may then ask if you could keep a diary or a notebook of when the noise occurs and how long it goes on for. Or you may decide yourself, before you even approach the Council, to actually begin doing this, and start keeping a diary describing when the noise happens. If the noise is excessively loud music, you should put the day and the date on which it occurs, the time it starts, how long it goes on playing for, and the time it stops.

When To Call The Police

The Police ask that you can only report a problem involving a noise such as loud music to them, if you believe that either it is an emergency, or that a crime is being committed, or there could be a threat to somebody’s life or their property, or the noise may be a link to domestic violence or a violent argument which could be life-threatening to somebody.

Please Take Note: Sometimes, noise can be part of harmful and violent domestic behaviour. Noise from a hi-fi playing loud music, or noise from a television, can be used to cover the sometimes terrifying sounds of domestic violence, so you need to be aware of this. If you decide that the noise is linked to domestic violence, a violent argument, or some kind of violent incident, you should call the Police immediately on 999.

THE USE OF HYPNOSIS

What A Hypnotist Does

If you decide to see a hypnotist because you want to regain your sense of inner calm, your sense of comfort, your sense of ease, and your sense of total peace of mind because you are feeling all anxious and stressed out over things such as a neighbour’s noise, like loud music, they may see you either online or in an office.

They will welcome you in a professional and courteous manner. They will have a chat with you first, to find out what your particular problems are regarding anxiety, stress and worry, and then they will begin the hypnosis session.

How A Heroic Aeroplane Passenger Who did not know how to fly, managed to land a plane when the pilot became unwell

Today, you will be joyfully reading how a heroic aeroplane passenger, who had no idea how to fly, and did not have any previous experience of flying an aeroplane, managed to somehow successfully land a plane when the pilot became sick.

When the pilot experienced a medical emergency because he had become sick and was unable to fly, the quick-thinking passenger immediately radioed air traffic control at Palm Beach International Airport in Florida, USA, for help from around 70 miles North of their destination. He was then heroically able to land the plane with the help of air traffic control guiding them.

West Palm Beach, Florida

The passenger, called George, told air traffic control: “Please can you possibly help us. I have a very serious situation here, because my pilot has become incoherent and is obviously very unwell. I have absolutely no idea whatsoever about how to fly this aeroplane. Please could you possibly help me, because I am extremely anxious about what to do”.

A dispatcher from air traffic control at Palm Beach International Airport almost immediately replied: “Roger. Are you able to tell me what your position is right now?”.

The passenger answered: “I have absolutely no idea. I can see the coast of Florida in front of me, but I have absolutely no idea – I have no idea whatsoever”.

The dispatcher then instructed the passenger: “OK. Just breathe evenly, and try to keep calm. I know this is a stressful situation for you, but whatever you do, please simply do not panic. Keep in constant contact with us. Keep the plane’s wings level and simply try to follow the coastline, either north-bound or south-bound. We are currently attempting to locate where you are”.

Luckily, the dispatchers could successfully locate the Cessna Caravan plane, which was flying about 25 miles North of Palm Beach in Boca Raton. They were then able to instruct the heroic passenger on how to very slowly and carefully descend the plane, and told him how to make a safe and somewhat steady landing at the airport.

The Beach at Boca Raton, Florida

Once the plane had safely and successfully landed, a dispatcher could be heard over the radio saying to everyone: “You have just seen a very heroic passenger land that plane”.

Someone then asked: Did you just say that one of the passengers managed to land the plane?”.

“That is absolutely correct”, the controller confirmed.

“Oh my goodness me – that was an absolutely great job!”, the person replied.

A Cessna Caravan Plane

The manufacturer of the plane, which was a 38-foot-long Cessna Caravan, can fly up to speeds of 215 mph. It has a wingspan of 52 feet, and it can accommodate up to 14 people.

How Hypnosis Helps With Keeping Calm In Stressful Situations

One way of keeping calm in stressful situations, is to have a sense of complete and total peace of mind. Having this real sense of total peace of mind can really help you to keep extremely calm in any kind of stressful situation. Total peace of mind is often that particular sense of profound and deep peace, that sense of ease, and that sense of comfort that you can sometimes occasionally feel and experience. A sense of ease, a sense of comfort and total peace of mind are also due to the absence of worry, which is when you know and you can sense that nearly all the time, you are feeling thoroughly content with your life and with the way things are going for you, and when you are nearly always feeling very calm, and very peaceful, rather than continually struggling with things such as your finances or your health.

What Hypnosis Can Do To Keep You Calm In Stressful Situations

Hypnosis can actually help you to achieve this sense of total and complete peace of mind, which in turn will help you to keep completely calm in stressful situations. Hypnosis is a completely safe and very relaxing way of gaining an inner calm, a sense of comfort, a sense of ease and a real sense of total peace of mind.

The Use Of Hypnosis

As I have already said, hypnosis is a safe, natural and relaxing way of gaining an inner calm, a sense of comfort, a sense of ease, and a real sense of total peace of mind if you want to be able to keep calm in stressful situations, rather than struggling with anxiety, stress or worry which you might currently be doing. Hypnosis will help you to stop worrying and getting all anxious and all wound up over things perhaps unnecessarily, and it will return you to your peaceful state which you had before you started worrying. At the end of the hypnosis session, you will be aware that the wonderful inner calm, the sense of comfort, the sense of ease and the total peace of mind has returned to you.

A Warning for Tesco’s and Sainsbury’s Shoppers Regarding a £279 Bill for their Regular Weekly Shop

Today, you can read all about how to avoid receiving a bill for £279 when you do your regular weekly shop at Tesco’s or Sainsbury’s supermarkets.

If you do your regular weekly shop at either of these two supermarkets, they will have sent you a warning that says you might be issued with a £279 bill. A lot of people do not know that if you shop in particular supermarkets, it could mean that you pay extra for your shopping yearly.

The consumer magazine “Which?” recently published a new checklist, which proves that shoppers spent £10.20p more each week at a particular “Sainsbury’s Local” in preference to a “Sainsbury’s Supermarket”. This adds up to a whopping £322 over the course of 12 months. Groceries from a “Tesco Express” could also cost, on average, £279 more over 12 months.

The “Which?” Report analysed the average price of 48 different items in the two convenience store chains. The research shows a series of cost-cutting methods for shoppers in the midst of the current cost of living crisis. The cost-cutting methods come as researchers at “Kantar” warned shoppers that their average food bill could rise by £279 this year. “Kantar” told them that grocery prices were now 5.9 per cent higher than they were exactly a year ago.

The “Which?” consumer rights expert, Adam French, said: “Rising food prices, and the current cost of living crisis, are putting a lot of pressure on household shopping budgets at the moment, and nobody wants to pay over the top for food”.

He said: “Shopping around different supermarkets and shops, and sticking to buying only own-brand groceries, is an easy way to save yourself hundreds of pounds a year, because you will be avoiding the more expensive convenience stores as much as you possibly can. Also, if you are a shopper who is prepared to move to a cheaper supermarket for your regular weekly shop, you will probably find some great value alternative products to your favourite brands”.

Five Top Tips To Save You Money On Your Regular Weekly Shop

Tip One – Always compare the different prices, and shop around for the best deals, such as “buy one get one free”. “Lidl” was the cheapest supermarket when “Which?” carried out a monthly price comparison, involving a basket containing 21 different groceries, with each basket costing about £25 each. More or less the same items from a “Waitrose Supermarket” cost £36.50, which meant you would save money by shopping at “Lidl”.

Tip Two – Start buying supermarket own brands, such as “Tesco’s Best Cornflakes”, and stop buying brand products, such as “Kellogg’s Cornflakes”, and you will save yourself hundreds of pounds a year. This is called “Downshifting”, and it could take about a third off the price of your usual weekly shop. If you usually spend £100 each week in “Tesco’s”, you would then save about £30 every time you went shopping there.


Tip Three
– Go to different supermarkets when you shop, and search through the different aisles for the best value products. “Which?” magazine found that some items, such as “rice”, “sauces” and “ingredients used for baking”, can be found in many different supermarket aisles. For example, items like “chickpeas” can also be found in the “world foods” aisle, as well as in the “tinned vegetables” aisle.

Tip Four – Always stock up whenever you can. Price changes mean that it is worth buying in bulk when items that you usually buy are sold at a lower price, and they will have a “reduced” sticker on it. This is especially useful for items such as tins of soup that can be kept in a cupboard, and also for products that can be frozen, such as fresh salmon fillets, because they will not go out of date in the near future.

Tip Five – Always check the “Special Offers” aisles in different supermarkets. There might be some things on special offer because they are nearing the “Use By” date, or they might be one of the items that are “buy one get one free”, or “buy two and get a third free”, because that particular supermarket wants to shift the stock more quickly before it passes the “Use By” date.

If you follow these tips diligently, you will be sure to knock off a few pounds or more on your weekly shop.

The Use Of Hypnosis

Hypnosis is a safe, natural and relaxing way of gaining calmness, a sense of comfort, a sense of ease, and total peace of mind. For instance, if you always go shopping on your own, you might sometimes find that you can get anxious and start to feel stressed, especially if the shop is really busy and quite noisy, and full of other people. For example, you might start feeling anxious because you are worrying about whether you can actually afford to indeed buy ten of one particular thing that is on a “buy two get one free” offer. Hypnosis can really help with this kind of anxiety.

What A Hypnotist Does

If you decide to see a hypnotist, whether in an office or online, they will welcome you in a professional and courteous manner. They will have a chat with you first, to find out what your particular problems are regarding anxiety, stress and worry, especially if they are related to anxiety about going shopping or about your financial situation and how much you should spend on your shopping trips. The hypnotist will then begin the hypnosis session.

They will talk with you soothingly and comfortingly. After a while has passed, they will know when you have become deeply relaxed enough so that they can access your subconscious mind directly. Once they have accessed your subconscious mind, they will speak to it as though it is a very bright ten-year-old child. They will remove the old, outdated set of instructions from it, and they will then replace them with a brand new set of instructions which it will be able to follow very easily.

When the hypnosis session has been gently and peacefully ended, the hypnotist will fully waken you, and you will find that you are wide-awake, fully alert, and feeling amazing and absolutely wonderful.

How To Deal With Anxiety and Stress in Your Daily Life

You will surely find this article to be of great help to you, if you are looking for ways of finding peace of mind and a sense of ease and comfort, and freedom from worry, when you are endeavouring to deal with all the anxiety and stress in your everyday life.

For example, have you ever woken up at three o’clock in the morning, in the middle of the night, in the pitch dark, feeling extremely anxious about some particular problem, especially if you are on your own, and feeling sick with stress about it all?

We all make our own anxieties seem to be so much worse. When you waken in the middle of the night, as I have said, and you are alone, your personal alarm clock goes off and it says that you must get up and get out of there. You have to escape. Escape! You must escape right now! It tells you that you must escape the current situation that is causing all these anxious feelings from which you are suffering.

So you get up, about your usual time, and you have your breakfast. In order to escape the situation, you make an instant decision to go off to a huge supermarket on a busy morning, hoping that by going there it will take your mind off things, and it just happens to be Saturday. It is jam-packed with crowds of people, the children running hither and thither, the noise, and the cash tills ringing, never mind the tinny music being played whether you like it or not, along with people pushing and shoving to get at all the lovely products on the shelves; and all this stress, on top of whatever the stress was that woke you, might well result in you being suddenly taken over by a feeling of becoming more and more anxious. And as you know, this could ultimately lead to a full-blown panic attack.

Accordingly, your anxiety makes you feel that you absolutely must get out of the actual situation that you are in right now, meaning in the middle of doing your shopping in an extremely busy supermarket, so you abandon your shopping trolley somewhere and breathlessly aim for the exit door. You come straight home, and then you tell yourself that you must not go in there ever again, or certainly not for as long as you possibly can. Your anxious feelings have taken you over, as it were, and in that instance you were able to make your escape.

One possible answer to this, would be to try changing supermarkets, possibly to a smaller less busy one, or to one nearer your house. Or try going with another person who could help you with the shopping, like a “personal shopper”, or even a volunteer. Then you could chat with them while doing the shopping and that could take your mind off how you were feeling in there, and that could possibly prevent the anxiety getting into your head.

Anxiety, apparently, is rather like an unwelcome guest in your own house, like when you have a close relative come to stay, even just for three days and three nights. You worry for weeks beforehand, cleaning and scrubbing your house practically non-stop, and then when it’s all done and dusted you then start to get anxious about everything, like whether the place is clean enough or tidy enough, that they won’t like the meals you cook for them. They might say that they love eating shepherd’s pie, for example, but they will only eat shepherd’s pie that is made how their mother used to make it years and years ago. In this particular case, you might solve the worry by asking your relative, “Well, how did your mother make it? Please could you give me the recipe you use to make it with, and I’ll do my best to please you”.

The great question about anxiety in general, is:- “Should you confront it?”. You could spend time in the actual situation that makes you feel anxious. Just supposing that this close relative is your cousin Julia who wants to spend a whole week with you in your house, because she wants to make sure you are looking after yourself properly. You need to be able to get self-confident about the idea of it, piece by piece.

Please kindly note, that “Night Anxiety” is when it all actually builds up inside you, as it were, like a monster in a nightmare, and you cannot easily get away from it or escape from it, for example by going shopping in a busy supermarket when it is three o’clock in the morning. Years ago, there were 24 hours of opening in some shops (for example, from midnight on one night to midnight the following night), where you could have done this, but not now.

So, if you are overcome with anxiety at three in the morning, you say to yourself, “OK, I’ll phone cousin Julia in the morning first thing, and I’ll either say to not come at all to stay, not because I don’t want her to, but because the proposed situation is making me physically feel sick and tremble with stress”. Or, you could decide to ask her, to come at lunchtime one day next week like Wednesday, and stay for the afternoon, the evening, and the night, and leave after lunch on Thursday. The second option would then give you a bit of practice at having someone there with you, to spend time with you, unlocking the reasons behind these feelings of anxiety, panic and stress that you have been having for such a long time recently. You may have felt so “alone” on occasions during the last few weeks, but you do not think that is the reason for your troubles with anxiety, stress, and worry.

Buy A Notebook In Which You Can Write Everything Down That Makes You Anxious

If you really want to gain comfort and peace of mind, and rid yourself of these anxious feelings, try writing it all down. Buy a special notebook for yourself, which you can get online, and create a list entitled “Priorities”. If you already have a computer such as a laptop, you could put everything on your computer. But then again, if you do this, it might well be worth also having a notebook to write in, so that you have a hard copy to which you can refer, if the information gets lost on the computer.

Start with a list of all the things you are currently anxious about and worrying about a lot, and want to sort out. Instead of sitting there, thinking about it all and wondering how you are going to solve a particular problem like “anxiety”, write it all down. Simply write about everything that makes you anxious. Once you have removed the problem this way physically, then you can actually stop the actual problem(s) that you have whirring round and round inside your head. If it is then three o’clock in the morning, by the time you have done your writing up about all your “priorities”, especially the problems that are causing your current anxiety states, you could then try to go off to sleep again.

Things You Can Do Straightaway To Regain Peace Of Mind And Banish The Anxiety

One certain thing that you can definitely do yourself, is to make an instant decision to reduce caffeine in your diet. This is because if, for example, you drink seven or eight cups of coffee or tea every day and/or night, that is simply asking for trouble, as all the caffeine that you have been drinking steadily will keep you wide awake nearly all night anyway, and it will not let you fall asleep. If you do fall asleep, the caffeine will just wake you up again. You will then waken in the middle of the night, possibly more than once or twice. You may even be “forced” to simply be wide awake practically all night long, simply because of your caffeine intake.

So, therefore, may we make one simple suggestion, that you write about everything that makes you anxious, however slightly, down on paper in a special notebook, or on your computer (but remember to keep a hard copy in a notebook). Call it something like “My List Of Priorities”, or “My Problems I Get Anxious About”, or something like that. Also, make a special section where you can write down things that you can do instantly yourself, like: “Reduce my intake of drinks containing caffeine”.

Obtaining Help and Support For Your Anxiety States

If you have absolutely no-one to assist you with all your anxieties, worry and stress or whatever it is that is causing you all this mental ill-health, then you could consider paying to see a counsellor, a psychologist or some kind of therapist. If you live in the UK, you could go and see a family doctor at your doctors’ surgery. They can be of enormous help in these matters.

Hypnosis is Absolutely Wonderful, Especially for Anything like Constant Anxiety, Stress, or Worry

Of course you could always try a hypnotist. If you would like to do this, just pick up your telephone and call one directly, such as ourselves. Bear in mind, that hypnosis works really well, but it works especially well if your problem is a mental one like “anxiety”, rather than a physical one like a “headache”. If you would like to know more about hypnosis, and how hypnosis works, simply call 07904 605344, say that you would like a hypnosis session to help you with all your anxieties and worries, and ask how you can possibly gain peace of mind and a sense of comfort, and rid yourself of these awful feelings once and for all.

THE USE OF HYPNOSIS

Hypnosis is a safe, natural, and relaxing way of gaining an inner calm, a sense of comfort, a sense of ease and peace of mind if you are struggling with anxiety, stress or worry. Hypnosis will help you to stop worrying and getting all anxious over probably something that is not really worth becoming all wound up about, anyway. It will also work out whether the problem you are stressing over, like anxiety, is within, or outside of, your control. If it is within your control, then you will be able to have a hypnosis session to try and solve the issue that is causing you such a lot of anxiety and worry. Hypnosis will provide a way out of it all, and give you peace of mind.

What A Hypnotist Does

If you decide to see a hypnotist, whether in an office, or online, they will welcome you in a professional and courteous manner. They will have a chat with you first, to find out what your particular problems are regarding anxiety, stress, and worry, and then they will begin the hypnosis session. They will talk with you soothingly and comfortingly. After a while has passed, they will know when you have become deeply relaxed enough so that they can access your subconscious mind directly. Once the hypnotist has successfully been able to access your subconscious mind, they will remove the old, outdated set of instructions from it, and they will then replace it with a brand new set of instructions which it will be able to follow very easily. When the hypnosis session has been gently and peacefully ended, the hypnotist will fully waken you, and you will find that you are wide-awake, fully alert, and feeling amazing and absolutely wonderful.

If you would like to know more about hypnosis, or about how hypnosis works, please feel free to call us on 07904 605344, and then we can have a chat about exactly what your problems are. We look forward to hearing from you.

Staying Calm In Chaotic Times

Peace of Mind is often that particular sense of profound peace, ease and comfort that you can sometimes feel and experience.

Peace of Mind is also the absence of worry, which is when you find that nearly all the time you are feeling thoroughly content with the way things are going for you, and when you are nearly always feeling very calm, and very peaceful.

Ways To Help Yourself To Stay Calm In Chaotic Times

A good way of helping yourself to stay calm in these chaotic times, is to really concentrate only on things that are within your control, and not on anything that is outside of your control.

For example, you could concentrate on your own physical and mental health and well-being. You could write out a list of your priorities in this area for yourself, and work your way steadily through them.

Work At Sorting Out Your Personal Finances

During the time of the pandemic, your personal finances might have well got out of hand, and they may need some tidying up.

Try and work at setting aside half an hour a week to do this in.

Work At Sorting Out The Home Where You Live

Another thing you could do, is to work at sorting out the home where you live, and work out what is rubbish and remove it all. What is left will probably just need cleaning, but you may have a lot of papers that need sorting through and filing. You may then decide that you need to upgrade one or two electrical appliances, and so you could do that as well. For example, in the kitchen, you may well decide to chuck out everything in your freezer to make loads of space, and then you go on a huge shopping trip for what you want to have in the fridge part and in the freezer part, as though you have just bought a new one.

Having a nice, clean and tidy home will help you to stay calm and peaceful and will soothe your nerves or anxiety about what is happening in the world outside. It will help you tremendously to work your way around your home, especially when you finally see the finished product.

Work At Your Personal Health Priorities

You could make a list of your personal health priorities, and work through the things on your list slowly and steadily, one by one. You could take as long as you like over this, because you do not have to be in any hurry.

For an example, you could put:-

To improve my physical self-image, so that I look and feel better physically and mentally.

To lose weight.

To make sure that I eat three balanced healthy meals a day, i.e. breakfast, lunch and dinner, and to create a weekly plan of what I will eat at these meals.

To eat more healthily and keep track of what I eat and drink throughout the day.

To keep busy, for example by doing a lot of cleaning and housework.

To draw up a daily plan for the cleaning and housework.

To not feel so depressed and sorry for myself.

To learn to meditate properly. A simple form of meditation is to sit quietly with your eyes closed and count your breaths as they pass in and out. Do this for 10 minutes.

To learn to use affirmations.

To try using hypnosis to help me with some of my ideas. For example, I could watch some online hypnosis videos on websites like “You Tube”. Or I could make an appointment to go and see a hypnotist and ask them to help me.

The Use Of Hypnosis To Help You To Stay Calm

Hypnosis is a safe, natural and relaxing way of learning how to gain great comfort and peace of mind after seeing a hypnotist, whether in their office or online. They will welcome you in a courteous and professional manner, so there is no need to feel nervous or anxious. They will have a chat with you, to find out what you would like to have help with, and what your problems are. Once the hypnosis session begins, they will talk to you soothingly and comfortingly, and when they know you are relaxed enough, they will start to address your subconscious mind directly.

Hypnosis in Action

What the hypnotist will do, is remove the old set of instructions that your subconscious mind was given previously at some point, and they will replace it with a completely new set of instructions which it will be able to follow easily. These new instructions will be all about helping you to stay relaxed and calm about everything. And when they have woken you at the end of the hypnosis session, you will find that you are feeling truly relaxed, absolutely wide awake, and feeling absolutely wonderful.

Hypnosis is extremely good for things like trying to lose weight, or to beat an addiction to alcohol, for example. We look forward to hearing from you in due course.

Covid-19 is Causing Chaos to the NHS in England, and Continues to Create Havoc with the Surgery Backlog

Surgical operations are currently being cancelled throughout England, as Covid-19 causes major disruption inside the NHS, and the doctors and the health leaders say that the UK Government’s surgical backlog targets are looking increasingly unachievable. There are currently six million patients on the waiting lists for NHS hospital care, and these include over 23,000 who have waited for more than two years for treatment.

Mr Boris Johnson, the UK Prime Minister, said that he had launched the “biggest catch-up schedule in the history of the National Health Service”, but around the same time he dropped every domestic Covid-19 restriction in England. However, now Covid-19 rates are creating havoc with the ability of the NHS to catch up with surgical operations that were cancelled or delayed before and during the pandemic.

Recent figures show, that more than 28,000 members of NHS staff are off sick from work every single day due to Covid-19, and more than 20,000 patients are actually in hospital with Covid-19. This, of course, has dramatically lowered the number of beds and spaces available for those patients who need to receive planned surgical care.

The President of the Royal College of Surgeons of England said: “Unfortunately, Covid-19 continues to cause major disruption in the NHS, with recent high staff absences. We do know that planned surgical operations are being cancelled again in different areas of England due to staff being off sick with it. We understand that this can be frustrating for surgical teams who want to help patients by getting planned surgery up and running again. It is also distressing for the patients who know that they actually need a planned operation”.

The Chief Executive of NHS Providers said: “Pressure is piling up on the NHS across England from a Covid-19 related triple whammy of staff absences, high numbers of people in hospital with Covid-19 and delays in discharging patients, while Covid-19 is continuing to use up all the beds that were available in social care services”.

The Chief Executive of the NHS Confederation, which represents the whole healthcare system, said: “The ongoing impact of Covid-19 was now interfering with the ability of the NHS to tackle the surgical backlog, and there should be “a healthy dose of realism” about what the NHS could achieve”.

The British Medical Association has accused the UK Government of failing to grasp how Covid-19 poses a serious threat to the NHS, to the backlog of planned surgery targets, and to the wider public. It has said, that unless the Government brought in certain measures to bring down the infection rates, including wearing masks on public transport such as trains, and in confined spaces such as offices, and providing ventilation in public and work settings, the pressures on the NHS would escalate even further, staff absences would rise even higher, and thousands of patients would be forced to wait even longer than ever for their planned surgical operation”.

NHS England said: “Staff will continue to carry on pulling out all the stops” in order to tackle the backlog.

The Use Of Hypnosis

Hypnosis is a safe, natural and really relaxing way of gaining calmness, a sense of comfort, a sense of ease and total peace of mind if you are feeling worried and stressed about why you are still waiting for that particular surgery for the last year and a half. Hypnosis will help you to stop worrying and getting all anxious about this.

If you decide to see a hypnotist, whether in an office, or online, they will welcome you in a professional and courteous manner. They will talk with you first, to find out what your problems are while you are waiting for your planned operation, and then they will begin the hypnosis session. They will talk to you soothingly and comfortingly. After a while, they will know when you have become deeply relaxed enough so that they can access your subconscious mind directly, and speak with it.

Hypnosis

Once they have successfully accessed your subconscious mind, they will remove the old set of instructions from it, and they will then replace it with a completely new set of instructions which it will be able to follow very easily. When the hypnosis session has ended, the hypnotist will fully waken you, and you will find that you are wide-awake, fully alert, and feeling absolutely wonderful.

If you have any questions at all, that you would like to ask about using hypnosis to stop you getting stressed about waiting ages for a planned surgical operation, or if you would simply like to know more about how hypnosis works, please feel free to call us on 07904 605344, and we can then have a friendly chat about it. I would love to be able to help you. You will find hypnosis to be an extremely relaxing and wonderfully uplifting experience which you will find most enjoyable.

In the UK, Everything is at risk of shortages, including food items such as Eggs, Tomatoes, Sunflower Oil, Bread and Wine

Food factories, restaurants, cafes, hotels, and shops across the UK are facing immediate and ongoing chronic shortages of many key ingredients. This is partly due to the current and terrible cost of living crisis, including the really high rises in the cost of electricity, gas, and water, as well as the weather, and the war in Ukraine.

People who go shopping in the UK may soon be aware that eggs have been added to the list of items disappearing from shops and supermarket shelves, when farmers said that the rising costs of egg production is making them not worth their while.

People in the egg industry say that supermarkets might very soon run out of the supply of eggs. The Council Chairman of the British Egg Industry said, that the tidal wave of price increases will see a lot of family farms, which have been producing eggs in the UK for years and years, going down in several days unless something is done.

Several fast food outlets in the UK, including McDonald’s, Happy Eater, and Little Chef, have been struggling to purchase ingredients. A spokesman for McDonald’s said that they were having trouble because of a shortage in their supply of tomatoes, and because of this, “The Big Tasty” and “The Big Tasty With Bacon”, will now be served not with two slices of tomato, but just one slice. McDonald’s also apologized for any inconvenience that their customers may have suffered, and they thanked them for their ongoing patience. Salad shortages are now being made, because the farmers cannot keep affording to heat the greenhouses that they have used for growing things, like tomato plants, in the UK.

The newest shortages are a result of the major outlets including “Subway” and “Nando’s” issuing alerts last year, when vital supplies ran short after Brexit and the crisis in global supply chains.

The consumer magazine “Which?”, has now warned of potential shortages in a number of key ingredients. They said: “While there are some residual issues in the food chains relating to Covid-19 and Brexit, such as whether any HGV drivers were available, what is now happening in Ukraine and the sanctions on Russia, will have an increasing effect on whether people will be able to buy certain foods”.

They also said: “For instance, about 30% of the world’s wheat comes from Ukraine and Russia. While the UK grows most of its own wheat, and our imports mostly come from France, Germany, and Canada, wheat around the world will become more and more scarce, and as a result this will lead to an ever higher increase in prices. Accordingly, this will put up the price of bread, pasta and many popular breakfast cereals such as cornflakes. Corn (Maize), is another staple food which is widely harvested in Ukraine and Russia. Both wheat and corn are used in the UK in animal feed, and therefore shortages and an increase in their prices, will then lead to an increase in the prices of meat, dairy, and eggs”.

The “Food Standards Agency” (FSA), and The “Food Standards Scotland” (FSS), said: “Some food products which have a label saying they contain “sunflower oil”, may actually contain “refined rapeseed oil”, while the war in Ukraine affects supplies”.

The Deputy Director of Food at The British Retail Consortium said: “The war in Ukraine has interrupted supplies of sunflower oil to the UK. When sunflower oil exists as an ingredient in certain products, retailers can substitute it with other safe oils, such as “refined rapeseed oil”. Retailers are looking to change the labels on their products as soon as they can. When sunflower oil is a main ingredient, such as in potato crisps, retailers will simply imprint information on the substitute oil, such as “refined rapeseed oil”, onto the existing labels. Retailers’ customer services will be answering consumers’ questions on all their own brand products”.

The British Retail Consortium also said:

“The farmers are also going to be feeling the pressures, because fertilizer which is usually sourced from Ukraine and Russia, is not available very often, and the increase in gas prices is affecting the supply of carbon dioxide, which is widely used in food production”.

“The French wine-makers are having to light candles to thaw their grapevines, which will save them from a late frost which has followed a warm spell this winter. This was a swing in the temperatures that is threatening the availability of the crops of fruit in many countries”.

“Fruit growers are increasingly worried that the frost will destroy a vast amount of early buds, which appeared in March as the temperatures rose to above 20 degrees centigrade, and this will make an absolute mess of the whole length of the growing season, which will also make the fruit growers increasingly anxious”.

“In Switzerland, the local media said that their crop of pitted fruit, like apricots, prunes and cherries, is at risk from the icy spell. The below-freezing temperatures are creating similar worries for fruit growers about the potential damage to apple, and other fruit, orchards in Belgium and The Netherlands”.

The Use of Hypnosis

Hypnosis is a safe, natural and relaxing way of gaining calmness, great comfort, a sense of ease and total peace of mind if you are struggling with all your worries about things like the food shortages, price rises, and everything like the price of electricity, gas, water and food and drink going up. Hypnosis will definitely help to stop you worrying about all this, and it will help to remove any related and persistent anxious feelings that you may have.

If you decide that you would like to see a hypnotist, whether online or in an office, they will welcome you very courteously and in a professional manner. They will have a friendly chat with you first, to find out exactly what your problems are, and once they know exactly what they are dealing with they will begin the actual hypnosis session. They will start talking to you soothingly and comfortingly. After a while has passed, they will know when you have become deeply relaxed enough so that they can access your subconscious mind easily and directly, and speak with it. During the hypnosis session, the hypnotist will remove all the old set of out-dated instructions from it, and they will replace it with a completely new set of instructions which it will be able to follow very easily. At the end of the hypnosis session, the hypnotist will fully waken you, and you will find that you are wide awake, fully alert, and feeling incredibly amazing and absolutely wonderful.

Peter The Airline Pilot Shares With You Some Things to Avoid on a Plane Flight During a Time of Turbulence

Today, you will read about An Airline Pilot called Peter who lives in the UK, and he would like to share some very useful ideas, which will surely help you and other readers who struggle with turbulence when they are flying on a plane. This is especially so, if you are one of those people endeavouring to cope with a long-haul flight. Even the very thought of being ill on a plane, even if you just feel sea-sick, can make someone feel unwell once a flight starts to become bumpy.

His first question was simply, “Are you frightened of going through turbulence on a plane flight? If this is true, then please carry on reading, because I would like to share with you my very top tips from myself”.

“Hello, I am Peter, an experienced Airline Pilot of many years’ standing, who wants to give you these top tips which I know will help you to survive turbulence”.

Avoid Alcohol

“Now, my very first tip”, Peter said, “is that, although you may feel extremely tempted, you really must Avoid Alcohol. Drinking alcohol because you are sitting there feeling terribly frightened, is just going to increase your anxiety levels, and when the turbulence does actually happen it will make you feel terribly air-sick. That is not going to be a way to get you through it, because you want to be able to thoroughly enjoy a good experience and enjoy your travelling and your holiday”.

“There are some passengers on a plane who think that drinking a glass or two of wine will help to calm down their anxiety and their nerves, but all it will do is simply increase their anxiety levels, as I have already said. Even drinking alcohol at the airport could make anyone feel unwell if their flight is struck by severe turbulence”. Peter added, “What you should do, is to try and zone out and concentrate on what is known as distractions”.

Avoid Reading A Book Or Doing A Crossword

“Some passengers like to read something like a really good book, which is not really a terribly good idea, because you’re trying to read small printed text that is bobbing up and down, and this is something that is obviously going to increase your chances of feeling that you are about to be physically sick. Trying to start and complete a crossword would have the same effect”.

Put The Flight Entertainment On, And Find A Very Good Movie, And Just Focus On The Story

“As for me, if I were in your position, I would definitely put the in-flight entertainment on, and then find a really brilliant movie which will keep my mind focused on the story, and use it as a distraction from the bumpiness of the flight. You should try and “zone out” completely and try to forget that you are actually on a plane that is going up and down. Things like “Distractions” are a really good method to decrease your levels of sheer, severe anxiety, if your plane does happen to go into turbulence. Fortunately it is a very good thing that long-haul plane flights these days, have a great range of entertainment to choose from. I mean, you could choose from a recording of a Shakespeare play, or a very well-known movie, or even some pop music. Just pop your headphones on and thoroughly enjoy whatever entertainment you have decided to choose. You could even listen to the current Top Twenty and see if you know all of the songs”.

Sit Back, Relax, And Imagine You Are On A Hammock

Peter then said, “Another comparatively simple tip, is to lie back, close your eyes, and imagine that you are on a hammock on the golden beach wherever it is you are probably travelling to, whether it’s Hawaii, California or even the Caribbean, and the plane is helping to rock you while you lie motionless on your hammock in the sun. Alternatively, you could also pretend that you are floating in a beautiful ocean like the Pacific Ocean, or the Indian Ocean, if that is what it takes to help you to calm your nerves and manage to get you through the spell of turbulence”.

Ask To Speak With One Of The Flight Attendants

Peter also said that if you are really afraid of what could happen during turbulence, a great idea is to speak with one of the flight attendants. What you should actually do, is to inform the airline in advance of the actual flight, that you are a very nervous flyer, and you get sea-sick at the very thought of even boarding a plane.

He said, “When we know that we have a very anxious and nervous flyer on board our plane, I like to go and talk to them, and have a really good helpful chat with them. I will find out where they are sitting, and I will make an effort to reassure them that they are in extremely good hands with very experienced staff who can really help them with their anxieties regarding the turbulence. I will tell them that flying is actually safer than crossing a busy road, and I will continue to reassure them that the aircraft is absolutely safe. They really do have absolutely nothing to worry about, or be fearful of. And of course, should they need it, we actually keep anti-sickness medication on board at all times simply because we know how extremely useful it can be for someone who really is feeling unwell and sea-sick. Or should I say air-sick”.

Turbulence Is Absolutely Nothing To Worry About

Peter also said, “There is absolutely nothing to worry about when the plane suddenly goes into turbulence. Turbulence itself is absolutely fine. And as I said before, what I do is, I go down the cabin, I say hello to everyone, and if I know there is a particularly scared passenger on board I will make time for them. Being reassured by an experienced airline pilot and also by the cabin crew can really help to calm the nerves of a nervous, anxious passenger”.

Always Wear A Seatbelt During Turbulence, And Always Follow The Cabin Crew’s Instructions

Peter’s next tip was, “All passengers should always wear a seatbelt during any episode of turbulence, and they should always follow the cabin crew’s instructions whatever they may be”.

One online traveller recently made a comment which said, “During our recent flight to Tampa in Florida, we encountered extremely severe turbulence on the way. Some members of the cabin crew appeared to be really scared and frightened, and they all looked as though the event was completely out of their control. All the passengers were instructed by the pilot to stay seated for hours on end. There were food and drinks trolleys laden with things like cottage pies and bottles of wine on them, abandoned everywhere, and also there were cans of drink, alcoholic and non-alcoholic, rolling around on the cabin floor”.

Peter said, “Aircraft passengers are more likely to suffer from bouts of turbulence on particular routes, which is due to either the weather, or how busy the particular flight path is. One of the very popular journeys is from New York to London, and it is on this route that the flight is most likely to become turbulent. Also, London to Glasgow is another common route for turbulence. Turbulent conditions can often be caused by very windy or rainy weather in the UK”.

Peter concluded by saying, “And although it might feel scary and you might well become extremely frightened by it, and very anxious, turbulence itself is not dangerous at all, and it is absolutely nothing to become very scared about. Modern aircraft are all built to withstand turbulence, and they are all able to cope with it, so please, try not to worry about it at all. And if your particular flight that you are on does actually hit turbulence, please don’t forget, that we carry anti-sickness medication on board”.

The Use Of Hypnosis For Travel Anxiety

Hypnosis can really help you, if you are a naturally anxious person who, for instance, becomes extremely anxious and agitated about even the very thought of sitting on a plane for ten hours or so, in a cramped space, surrounded at close quarters by many other people.

Hypnosis is a safe, natural and very relaxing way of learning how to gain great comfort, a sense of ease, and total peace of mind while you are travelling somewhere, especially on a long-haul journey in a plane or even on a boat. You will learn how to master this sense of great comfort and peace of mind, rather than feeling constantly anxious and worrying about all kinds of things for the whole length of your journey.

If you decide to see a hypnotist, whether in an office or online, they will welcome you in a professional and courteous manner. They will talk with you first, to find out what your problems are regarding travel, and then they will begin the hypnosis session. They will talk to you soothingly and comfortingly. After a while, they will know when you have become deeply relaxed enough so that they can access your subconscious mind directly, and speak with it.

Once they have successfully accessed your subconscious mind, they will remove the old set of instructions from it, and they will replace it with a completely new set of instructions which it will be able to follow easily. When the hypnosis session has ended, the hypnotist will fully waken you, and you will be wide awake, fully alert, and feeling absolutely wonderful.

If you have any questions that you would like to ask about using hypnosis for travel anxiety, or if you would like to know more about how hypnosis works, please feel free to call us on 07904 605344, and we can have a friendly chat about things. You will find a hypnosis session to be a completely relaxing and wonderfully uplifting experience, which you will also find extremely enjoyable.
