More money, more health, more happiness!

You can change the quality of your life

1. Change the way you feel.

Emotions are very important in our life. When we feel down, our life seems bleak and we feel unmotivated to do anything. Good news is that you can change your mood simply

2. Change the way you think

This one is tricky. Here I am not talking about simply forcing your self to be unnaturally positive about everything. I am talking about developing an understanding of things around you, so you will be able not to be negative. Through understanding why things happen, you will be able to not get mad at unimportant things. You will simply let them go.

3. Change the way you relate to other people.

When we relate to others it is highly important to understand where they are coming from. Just think how many times you were upset at someone simply because you did not understand them or their point of view. If we will start looking for understanding first, in any situation, instead of simply reacting, we will avoid half of the problems that we have in our lives today.

4. Change the way you think about money.

Money is a sticky subject. People, from the time immemorial, had issues with money. Be it, calling money evil, or putting it on a pedestal, there was always a lot of drama surrounding this subject. The fact is though - money

5. Change the way you think about your self.

You can`t affect any sort of change in your life if you do not like your self. Your self worth will influence everything you do. If you do not think you are worth it, your chances for success in anything diminish significantly.

One of the ways of increasing your self esteem would be to pay attention to any success that you achieved, however small. Learn how to forgive your self when you fail. This is a way of conditioning your mind to look at your self as a valuable being.

6. Use creativity in every aspect of your life.

One of the greatest and most fulfilling thing we can do to change our life is to use our own creativity as much as possible in our daily life. Being creative is one of those things that is integral in our life yet we pay almost no conscious attention to it. If you feel that your life became a drag, all you have to do is to awaken your creativity again and it will be transformed in an instant.

One of the surest ways to awaken your creative ability is to simply use it as much as possible. You can also check out a program where you go through an intense boot-camp to do the same (www.burstcreativity.com). Whichever way you do it however, you must do it, if you want to sky rocket your satisfaction in life.

7. Change the way you think about your body.

You probably heard many times that our bodies are our temples. Even though we often don`t treat our bodies as such, it is worthwhile to make an effort in that department. You see one of the best arguments I know for this is simply that everything in life is interconnected. If we don`t take care of our bodies, both from physical exercise and nutrition point of view, they simply will not function very well. And if we don`t feel well physically, you can bet that we will not feel well emotionally, neither. Another point to bring up is the reverse of the previous statement - you can easily improve your out look on life

8. Change what you eat

Nutrition, although previously mentioned, definitely deserves more emphasis. Today obesity is one of the biggest problems in North America. If we don`t change that soon it will become catastrophic as the population ages. So how do we actually improve our eating habits? We educate our selves. The best tip I know in changing the way you eat is (drum roll) learn from an expert. Go see a nutritionist. Not only a good nutritionist will be able to craft an ultimate way for you to eat, but they would do it in a customized way specifically made for your body and situation.

9. Pay attention to what is happening around you.

We lead very busy lives. Work, kids - it seems that every minute of the day is taken

The best practice to avoid that is, from time to time, to become an observer. Develop the ability to view your life from the third person perspective. This may be a difficult concept to understand, but getting help in this department is easy. Most meditation traditions teach exactly this principal.

10. Give only what you would like to receive.

Give on to others what you would like for your self - is one of those ancient Christian sayings that rings true in our modern time. To bring it to the modern era, let`s look at it from a business perspective. Psychology that applies to sales process also applies in many other arias of our life. In sales in order to persuade the prospect to buy, we use such techniques as mimicking, sincerity and others designed to make that person trust us. But in reality all we are doing is practicing that old principal of making others feel how we want to feel. We are creating an emotional experience for another person and they reward us with a sale. This as well as all the other principals we discussed is very simple. All we need to do is apply them one

`The church bells are part of the territory. What don`t make sense

Independent, The (London) , Jun 30, 2006 by Tracey Emin

The bells, the bells, the beUs. The drums, the drums, the drums. The bells, the drums. The drums, the bells. The drums, the drums, the drums. The bells, the drums. The bells. OK, I know where the bells are coming from. I know I have a hangover from complete hell on this godforsaken Sunday morning. Our almighty maker has decreed that I suffer the noise of ringing bells. I live opposite a Grade-I listed church, in my Grade-II listed house, which unfortunately, according to English Heritage, is not allowed to have double glazing. I did say to the reverend: "You might know when it`s St Swithin`s day, for example, but I don`t. Maybe you should give us some prior warning when there`s going to be a massive bell-ringing session?" A few days later, a letter came through my door.

"Dear Parish neighbour, we at Christ Church Spitalfields are very proud to announce that we are a main contender for the Guinness Book ofRecords"bell-ringing record. At present the record stands at 48 hours, and we do hope that we will have your consideration and understanding, that not all our bell-ringers are professional, and at certain times during the attempt to break the record, amateur bell-ringers may be required to take over." I had to laugh.

But you see, I love my local church. It is a truly beautiful building designed by Hawksmoor. A church for the poor, just outside the city walls. It`s been here a lot longer than I have, so even when I have a chronic hangover, I more than tolerate the bells. I appreciate them for their beauty. (That`s an absolute lie.) The fact is, it`s part of the territory. Huguenot street. Huguenot church. Huguenot bells. What doesn`t make sense are the vast number of drummers, girls in bikinis, palm trees, tons of sand, and really, really loud fucking drums! On a Sunday morning, around the corner from where I live!

Do you know what? It starts at 10 in the morning and goes on until 11 at night. Oh, I forgot to say what it is exactly. It`s a beach in the East End, in a car park! I`m not being a spoilsport, but would you like it at the end of your street? Four thousand drunk people, on a Sunday, pissing all over the place, leaving rubbish everywhere. Surely the right place for a beach is by the river, or by the sea? Tower Hamlets council is so dodgy. They didn`t even consult the residents. I`m going to get a really big drum and go down to the council offices. I`ll bang it really hard, non-stop, and see how they like it.

Sleep is really important. It`s time when our whole bodies and our minds regenerate. At the moment I`m desperate for a nap. I`ve really been overdoing it and it makes me very snappy. Yesterday I shouted at a cement mixer. When I was three, my mum and my nan took my twin brother and I to Watford market, and somehow my brother got lost. I suppose he was only lost for a few minutes, but when you`re a child, time seems to relate far more in cat years than in human years. To me, the few minutes seemed like hours. I can still remember my mum running around, hysterically screaming at men in hard hats to turn their cement mixer off. She was convinced that he was in there. It was probably the worst thing she could imagine at that time. It`s incredible how in times of fear we throw ourselves into more fear. What frightens me most in life, if I`m honest, is abandonment. There`s a good reason for this. It`s because I was left when I was little.

My dad`s been writing a book. He`s 85 now and he`s got to page 270, all written in longhand, a strange mixture of little letters and capitals, broken English and a wild use of phonetic spelling. He`s told me that as he`s been writing, it`s made him sad looking back on his life. He said he feels guilty, knowing that the women in his life, and his children, must have suffered. I believe that it`s really good he`s working all this stuff out. Better late than never, Daddy.

My mum left me as well. She hasn`t quite got round to putting pen to paper, but I bet it`s going to be a cracker, too! The last manuscript she wrote was when she was 30. The one and only copy she had, she left on the Northern Line. And my dad`s last great foray at being a literary genius was executed at May Day Hospital, in 1963, while he was recovering from severe alcoholism. It`s amazing what`s hereditary!

1963, oh what a year! Kennedy was shot and I was born! In fact it`s my birthday next week. Monday 3 July. I share it with many greats: Julie Burchill, Franz Kafka, Ken Russell, to name just a few. This year, being 43,1 thought I should calm down on the party scene. Grow up a little bit. And I pleaded with all my friends not to give me any presents. I really don`t need anything. It`s a great way to feel on my last week of being 42. On Sunday night I`ll go to bed excited, just looking forward to another year.

St. Swithin`s day if thou dost rain For forty days it will remain St. Swithin`s day if thou be fair For forty days, beach revellers, Beware
