Busy? How to be stress-free in Hong Kong

BY PETE GABLE

Hong Kong is one of the fastest paced places in the world, and for business executives stress is part and parcel of everyday life today.

Stress is the body’s response to any kind of demand and it comes in good and bad forms. Watching your team compete in a cup final, getting married and a birth are all a source of stress but, as enjoyable ones, they generally pose no real issues.

Stress caused by overwork, peer pressure, excessive travel and fatigue is not only very negative for us but also one of the hardest to avoid and manage. Left untreated it can lead to long term health implications. The antidote is rest and relaxation, which in Hong Kong is usually in short supply.

many Hong Kong business people are turning to Hypnosis. This is the perfect tool for managing their stress. It is both safe and easy as well as being highly effective.

Hypnosis is a state in which the participant reaches an state of consciousness similar to sleep in that it is very relaxing but where they remain completely conscious of what is happening around them.

Executives that report difficulty in sleeping and relaxing find it a deeply refreshing and pleasant experience and often emerge from a 1 hour session feeling better than after a full night’s sleep.

With instruction and a little practice a participant can practice self hypnosis at any time that is suitable for them, refreshing themselves between meetings and when traveling as well as improving the quality of their sleep.
