"Have One Week, Will Relax" Your 7 days program to Stress management

They say there's more than one way to skin a cat. The same goes when you start tearing your hair out with all the frustration, grief, anxiety, and yes, stress. It's a state of mental conditioning that is like taking that bitter pill down your throat, causing you to lose your sense of self, and worse your sanity. Just thinking about it can drive anyone off the edge.

And they say that the proactive ones are already living off the edge.

As one stressed-out person to another, I know how it feels, and believe me there are many variants when it comes to stress. Coping with life, and carrying the problems that may or may not belong to you can scratch away the little joy and happiness that you can carry once you head out that door. You can't blame them for being like that; they have their own reasons, so much like we have our reasons to allow stress to weigh us down. They say that stress is all in the mind, well, what's bugging you anyway?

There are several ways to manage stress, and eventually remove it out of your life one of these days. So I'll try to divide it into a seven-day course for you and I promise it's not going to be too taxing on the body, as well as on the mind.

1. Acknowledge stress is good
Make stress your friend! Based on the body's natural "fight or flight" response, that burst of energy will enhance your performance at the right moment. I've yet to see a top sportsman totally relaxed before a big competition. Use stress wisely to push yourself that little bit harder when it counts most.

2. Avoid stress sneezers
Stressed people sneeze stress germs indiscriminately and before you know it, you are infected too!

Protect yourself by recognizing stress in others and limiting your contact with them. Or if you've got the inclination, play stress doctor and teach them how to better manage themselves.

3. Learn from the best
When people around are losing their head, who keeps calm? What are they doing differently? What is their attitude? What language do they use? Are they trained and experienced?
Figure it out from afar or sit them down for a chat. Learn from the best stress managers and copy what they do.

4. Practice socially acceptable heavy breathing
This is something I've learned from a gym instructor: You can trick your body into relaxing by using heavy breathing. Breathe in slowly for a count of 7 then breathe out for a count of 11. Repeat the 7-11 breathing until your heart rate slows down, your sweaty palms dry off and things start to feel more normal.

5. Give stressy thoughts the red light
It is possible to tangle yourself up in a stress knot all by yourself. "If this happens, then that might happen and then we're all up the creek!" Most of these things never happen, so why waste all that energy worrying needlessly?

Give stress thought-trains the red light and stop them in their tracks. Okay so it might go wrong - how likely is that, and what can you do to prevent it?

6. Know your trigger points and hot spots
Presentations, interviews, meetings, giving difficult feedback, tight deadlines…. My heart rate is cranking up just writing these down!

Make your own list of stress trigger points or hot spots. Be specific. Is it only presentations to a certain audience that get you worked up? Does one project cause more stress than another? Did you drink too much coffee?

Knowing what causes you stress is powerful information, as you can take action to make it less stressful. Do you need to learn some new skills? Do you need extra resources? Do you need to switch to decaf?

7. Burn the candle at one end
Lack of sleep, poor diet and no exercise wreaks havoc on our body and mind. Kind of obvious, but worth mentioning as it's often ignored as a stress management technique. Listen to your mother and don't burn the candle at both ends!

So having stress can be a total drag, but that should not hinder us to find the inner peace of mind that we have wanted for a long time. In any case, one could always go to the Bahamas and bask under the summer sun.

Don't purchase any "Law of Attraction" books until you read this!

When I first heard about Manifest a Miracle, I thought to myself, “oh great, another product rehashing The Secret”.  It seems like there’s way too much redundant information on the Law of Attraction out there, and nothing ever seems to work.  But my friend urged me to grab a copy, citing his own success.  So I bought it, just to humor him…

Man, was I ever wrong!

Manifest a Miracle is easily the best Law of Attraction book I’ve read to date, and I’ve devoured them all!

First off, what all other manifestation products lack, this one embodies from beginning to end.  Manifest a Miracle has been lovingly crafted and is meant to teach anyone how to immediately change their life for the better.  Where other products offer a theoretical background but little helpful practical advice, Manifest a Miracle contains page after page of practical, useful exercises and processes that can actually get the Law of Attraction working!

Nothing dull or dry - it’s all fun stuff!

The author’s knowledge and warmth pervade this book.  It’s obvious that Gary is manifesting his desires, because his happiness and excitement radiate from each page.  There is no better teacher than one who is a living example, and Gary is definitely living the life he desires!

Most importantly, the processes given within Manifest a Miracle are easy to practice and surprisingly fun!  No more dry, repetitive visualizations - here are some exercises that are really easy to get into, and truly do what they are supposed to do.  You’ll be feeling great in no time!

And best of all, Gary describes how best to work these exercises into your daily routine in order to wake up feeling good, feel good all day, and go to bed feeling good.  Within three days of starting my own schedule, I was feeling fantastic!  Two days later and I found my first desire had manifested.  Since then, there has been no turning back, and I have Manifest a Miracle to thank for this.

Just think.  What would have happened if I hadn’t grabbed this book?  I’d still be creating a reality I wasn’t happy with.  I had no idea how easy it really is to attract everything I want!

If you’re looking for the one Law of Attraction guide that will give you all of the tools you need to truly manifest your desires with ease, grab a copy of Manifest a Miracle today.  It’s truly the “feel good” book of the year!

Weight Control – Just another mind game

Like all areas of our lives, weight control is simply another mind game. Once you take control of the gray matter between your ears in regards to your weight, you will have more success than any of the diet and or exercise programs you see on the market today.

The next 7 days
What you need to do, in the next 7 days, should you accept the challenge is to begin to visualize the weight that you want to be at. Do a little dreaming building in the magazines. Cut out a picture of the body that you desire to have and put a photo of your face on it.

The first thing in the morning when you get up, focus on the picture and visualize as vividly as possible, every single detail that you can think of about the way you want your body to look, what you'd be doing. The more detailed the image that you have of this the better this exercise will work. You must do this exercise 1st thing in the morning and the very last thing at night, before you go to bed.

There are many reasons for doing this but the one that I will let you in on, is this. Millionaires and billionaires surveyed have only 1 difference. Millionaires read their goals only once a day, but billionaires read them twice a day!

Begin with the end in mind
Focus on how you want your life to be and begin there. Next, and most importantly is, an action plan. 80% of the battle is done when you get control of your mind. 20% is in the actions you take. Control your mind, you control your weight and your life.


Your next thing to do is to create an action plan. What you need to do now is to find as many ways as you can think of to achieve your goal. For the next 5 minutes, you need to write down on a sheet of paper as fast as you can as many things you can do to achieve your goal. Don't censor yourself at this stage. Just get it out of you head at this stage.  Once you've done this you can move onto the next paragraph.

Now it's time to be more precise. I want you to circle the top 5 things that you can do, and then circle the top one thing you can do in the next 24 hours. The next thing to do is to get to it!
