Helping you beat the holiday blues!
As the US’s Covid 19 lock-down continues and the government warns US against making holiday plans just yet, many people may find their state of mind slipping downwards without their annual summer trip to look forward to. So, in response, I’m going to help you to travel to their favorite destinations – from the comfort of their own armchair!
Amid the despair and grief of this pandemic, it might seem silly to focus on holidays, but they undoubtedly play a huge part in our mental health and well being. From the excitement of choosing a destination and accommodation, researching everything from sights to restaurants, to the actual week itself followed by the recollection of treasured memories, holidays really do matter.
It’s about ‘life experiences’, relaxation, and most importantly, escapism from everyday life.
The coping process of escapism is common to many people in difficult times, and by wanting to still book a holiday, we are actively engaging in escapism behavior.
Escape is key in our mental self-care, and it can be good to seek a happy escape when things seem impossible – that feeling of ‘I just need to get away.
And of course, many forms of our regular escapism, such as going out to the gym, bars and restaurants, have been taken away from us, increasing our desire to plan ahead for getaways once lock-down is lifted.
I’ve now created five free downloads to enable people to spirit their minds away to an amazing holiday destination and in doing so, take back a little of the relaxation and release they would have enjoyed had they actually been away.
At a time when we can’t guarantee a lengthier reprieve, something as simple as
taking a ‘virtual holiday’ can offer a brief moment of escapism. This allows you an outlet for the stress we are facing, and the energy to re-engage with life in lock-down.
My free downloads are a form of self-hypnosis, and simply require you to sit down in a quiet and comfortable spot, close your eyes, listen to my words, visualize the holiday destination, and relax. I’ve chosen five types of holiday for the recordings:
So, go ahead, try my downloads for yourself right now. I hope you enjoy them, and I hope that they allow you some respite from the situation we are all in. And please let me know what you think. Thank you.
These are hypnotherapy recordings, and the only people it is not suitable for are individuals with serious mental health issues, such as Schizophrenia and Clinical Depression.
