Subconscious Talk: Self-Esteem – Your key to happiness @ Futura House
Aug 29 @ 19:00 – 21:00

How thinking about yourself differently can change the way you feel about yourself.

Self Esteem 12-10-16 crop350Self-Esteem is central to our survival. It is the basis of our well-being. Entire books have been written on the subject and many definitions have been formulated to capture the essence of what self-esteem is.

Self-esteem is a confidence in our ability to think, to cope with the basic challenges of life and confidence in our right to be successful and happy. – Nathaniel Branden

The way we judge ourselves and perceive how others look at us has a huge influence on our self-esteem and you may not even be aware of how debilitating this may be.

Signs of low Self-Esteem

There are many signs of low self-esteem and shame is high on the list. Shame hurts our self-image and our belief that we can change things we don’t like about ourselves or our situation.

Other signs that can indicate low self-esteem could be feelings of pessimism, anxiety, over-exaggeration by making things seem more troublesome than what they are, perfectionism, blaming others or putting other people down, jealousy, sensitivity to criticism, hostility, lack of boundaries and allowing others to use you, codependency, self-neglect, eating disorders, depression, social withdrawal, physical signs that can range from fatigue to insomnia and headaches. These are some of the signs that can easily be noticed and when you do, you can support those around you by becoming more aware of this in them and yourself.

The need for positive self esteem and identity is common to all of us. We need to feel accepted, confident, worthy, and self-reliant. Ethel S Person, MD

Join me for an insightful evening and learn more about how to improve Self-Esteem in yourself and also for those you love and care. As parents, teachers, brother, sisters and friends we can support those around us and help them to have a more positive outlook about themselves.

Subconscious Talk: Anxiety & Stress - 5 Sept '19 @ Futura House

Anxiety & Stress

Anxiety is something that exists in everyday life and in certain instances can be helpful, but sometimes when unchecked it can also be really debilitating. Although we need some anxiety to keep us alert it can affect our lives in many negative ways and when anxiety spirals out of control it can be overwhelming, mentally and physically. When this happens it may be time to reflect and seek help.

The feeling of Anxiety can come in many different guises e.g. panic, phobias, social anxiety, post traumatic stress, general anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive behavior, and many more.

Symptoms such excessive worry, sleep problems, irrational fears, muscle tension, chronic indigestion, irritable bowel syndrome, stage fright, self-consciousness, panic attacks, flashbacks, perfectionism, compulsive behaviors, self-doubt are among the tell tale signs that you may need help.

Stress impacts your body and mind in many ways and when unchecked can overtime have a very negative effect. This can contribute to physical and mental health problems. Your bodies natural response to stress is to protect and therefore automatically activates the “fight and flight” response to deal with perceived danger.

According to the HPRC the relaxation response is so pervasive that it actually impacts your body at the molecular level. This means that it can affect which of your genes are “activated,” thereby impacting how your cells function. For example, the relaxation response can help turn ON certain genes that allow your body use energy more efficiently—thus reducing cellular aging—and turn OFF other genes that lead to inflammation and stress—the very opposite of what happens during your stress response.

There are only a few effective mind-body techniques that can help you to activate your relaxation response that is so crucial for you happiness and health. Among these techniques to elicit your relaxation response are deep-breathing exercises, guided imagery, hypnosis, meditation, progressive muscle relaxation, and yoga.
