We all carry bags in life – from school, to plastic carriers, for shopping and for work. Our bags may contain nothing, or do they — expectations, responsibilities, to-do lists, or perhaps dreams? In our bag, who do these things belong to?
Indeed, bags can be useful for holding things for us, as we move about. What does it feel like to carry the bag, and what effect do these things in the bag have on us, on our outlook?
Over time, the bag may fill up with more things, such as new expectations, additional responsibilities, longer to-do lists. Things in the bag may start competing for space and when that happens, is the change in the bag helping or hurting? What will be done when the bag is full?
Carrying bags require some effort, and for that, does it give what you seek out of life and make you happier?
Sometimes, life adds weight to the bag, so much so that it causes us to struggle with it. Signs of difficulty include (but not limited to):
- eating too much or too little, craving for sweet food
- loss of sleep (insomnia)
- smoking or drinking more
- relationship issues
If you are experiencing such difficulties, you are not alone. Stress in overwhelming amounts may cause potential health problems. Hypnotherapy can help to identify and relief what is causing stress, so that you can better cope with what is going on. Contact us for a free consultation today.
