1. Self hypnosis each day
Keep your mind trim by giving it a chance each day to rest and properly process information. Those who practice self hypnosis each day, insist that they feel better for doing so, claiming to have more energy and focus afterwards and achieve their goals with greater ease as the conscious and subconscious are given an opportunity to communicate with each other. Hypnosis can also be used to accelerate healing, so any winter ailments will quickly get better and a routine of practising hypnosis can lead to a general improvement in health.
2. Increase your interest and intelligence
It’s time to invest in that hobby that you’ve always thought about doing but never really got around to. Having a new interest will stimulate your mind and help to keep it young, whether you’re committing to doing a crossword puzzle each day or learning a new skill like horse riding, or a martial art. You can learn more about your mind with NLP by ordering the People Building NLP Practitioner manual, complete with audio CD’s.
3. Set some goals
Setting a goal is basically a way of giving yourself a problem. This might not sound terribly appealing but a goal is a quality problem. Goals are great to have as it makes it less likely that the nasty problems that we do not want, will show up in our lives- or at least if they do show up, they will not appear as significant as they might have done otherwise. Goals also keep us motivated and enthusiastic and give a wonderful sense of achievement, increasing our self worth, once they are accomplished. See the articles page to find tips on how to set achievable goals.
4. Stop smoking/Get your body to the correct weight
Out of these two health hazards quitting smoking is the most important thing you can do for the benefit of your health. There are so many people I know who are devoted to self improvement and invest in all sorts of courses to improve their thinking and focus. Yet if your body is unhealthy, you have missed the point. Nothing you can achieve is ever superseded by your health, but people fail to get this message, until they get sick.
The People Building website has resources to assist smoking cessation and weight loss. Check out the Quit Smoking Hypnosis Audios, the Weight Loss Audios and Freedom from Smoking the NLP Way, an e-book guaranteed to have you quit cigarettes or claim your money back.
5. Exercise more
Even if you exercise already, you can benefit from revamping your regime to prevent a plateau occurring in your level of fitness. You should be doing 3 hours exercise every week and whilst this should ideally be cardiovascular, any amount is better than none at all. Exercise doesn’t have to mean going to the scary gym, it could be taking a walk, swimming, ice skating or another fun physical activity that you enjoy!

6. Eat your 5 a day
Here are the rules with your 5 fruit and vegetables a day. A portion is about the amount you could fit in one of your own handfuls (so for children it is as much as they could fit in their own handful). You need to have as many different colours as possible (for example green grapes, red strawberries, blueberries, yellow banana, orange carrots) and eating two portions of the same food will still only classed as one portion. So if you eat 5 apples in one day it is still only one portion, the same applies if you have 3 glasses of orange juice, it’s still only one portion. Potatoes are not classed as vegetables in your 5 a day, they are carbohydrates. If you’re not keen of fruit and vegetables, try the Exploring Food Hypnosis Audio.
7. Be more grateful
In the hit film “The Secret” the term “develop an attitude of gratitude” was coined. This means being grateful for what you have already. Remember that the Law of Attraction is working with a time delay. Feeling lack in the moment of now, sends a signal to the universe to bring you more lack in the future. Feeling grateful now, tells the universe that you are feeling thankful and welcoming. The universe will know that you are ready to receive and will begin pointing you in the direction of achieving what you desire in the future. Check out the Law of Attraction tips in the People Building podcast.
8. Give more
Make time in your routine to give to others. Giving your time or knowledge is far more empowering that simply giving your money. If you do give your money to a charity, find out about what difference your cash is making. Read up on tithing from the Catherine Ponder book “The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity” to find out more about the benefits of giving.
9. Forgive those that you need to
Harbouring onto old hurts and mistrusts zaps both your energy and spirit. It’s not for me to say how you should forgive those who you feel have wronged you in some way. It could be that you need to give them a call if you haven’t spoken to them for a while. Or that you take the time to see an old situation from a new perspective in which you see how this situation has helped to develop you in some positive way. It could be that you write a letter that you later stick on the bonfire- it doesn’t really matter what you do as long as you choose something that will help you move on with your life, leaving the bad feeling behind you.
10.Sort out your finances
I recently listened to a podcast all about manifesting money. Whilst it is definitely important to be grateful for what you have in order to feel more abundant, it isn’t necessarily the most practical way to increase your bank balance, and I was surprised to hear that this was the general theme of the podcast. In order to get your finances in hand, you have to first understand your current situation, If you’re in debt you need to know by how much, what the interest is and formulate a plan to get it paid back. If you’re investing, talk to someone who has invested well. You will always be better off investing in assets (e.g. property) that in savings which do not grow at the same rate of interest as inflation, meaning your savings are worth less each year. Remember that these days most banks are run like supermarkets, always trying to sell you additional products. Your banker is no longer an investor, but an employee who may have just finished his A-levels. Try our new Hypnotic MP3, Abundance to bring more wealth your way.
