So, a good exercise is to put an inspiring picture or quote on your bedside table so that when you wake up you will automatically have a positive starting point for your day. Of course life can throw wammy's at us throughout the day, however if you started off in a positive, upbeat manner, you will much more likely weather the storm in a more constructive way and return to calm more quickly. Try it, I'd love to hear your tips on starting the day in a positive way.
I have some great NLP techniques that can help you achieve calm very quickly and change any thought patterns or behaviour that is no longer serving you well. In simple terms, NLP works by accessing the hidden parts of our unconscious where our beliefs and patterns lie and overwriting these unhealthy patterns and beliefs with ones that are more in alignment with how you would like your life to be. Some examples: being more confident, overcoming a fear of heights, childhood trauma.
