  • You can have your choice of background music playing

How to Accept Old Age Gracefully

Growing old, at least in the number of years we’ve been on this planet, is something that happens to everyone.

But that doesn’t mean we’re prepared for the experience. After all, in our formative years it seems as though everyone who’s too old to be at school is basically ancient.

And even as we begin to grow old, in our mind’s eye we’re still youthful. Even if we aren’t as fast as we were and need props such as glasses and maybe even a walking stick or other mobility aid to help us live our lives.

But unless you’re a rock star then the time comes that you need to accept old age, preferably at least kind-of gracefully.

5 Ways to Silence Your Inner Critic

We all have nagging voices in our heads: they’re our inner critic and often they talk to us in a way that we wouldn’t tolerate from anyone else.

At a minimum, your inner critic is negative about anything new or different you decide to do. It will come up with all sorts of reasons why it won’t work and why you shouldn’t even attempt whatever it is you’re aiming to do.

Sometimes the inner voices are even worse and stop you in your tracks, preventing you from doing something you’d actually rather enjoy and might even be good at.

If you’re worried that you’re being beset by this fear, what can you do about it?

Successful Weight Loss with Hypnosis

Based on my initial experiences, when it comes to using hypnosis programs to lose weight, I believed that losing weight was just going to be impossible.

You don’t know how to get rid of bad habits and you don’t understand that being patient to wait to see results is vital for you to succeed.

A lot of us expect almost immediate results from our weight goals and then give up too quickly when that doesn’t happen or it all becomes “too difficult”. And that can happen with whatever program you were trying out at that time.

The list below has four major rules necessary for the mind over matter state that you can develop when you use hypnosis to help with your weight loss:

Fear of Flying is Not a Disease

Although plane accidents do not happen every day, the media attention that shines upon them and the number of people that die cause additional fear in passengers that are already hesitant whether to go on a plane or not.

There are several studies made in the world that have shown that 40% of people have some sort of flying fear, and it can be seen in 11% of the people who use planes to travel. Opposed to that, statistics show that flying is, according to the relation of the number of flights and the number of accidents, actually the safest way of transport. Still, in these accidents the outcome is most often fatal, and news reports usually start their reports with the words “all passengers and crew members killed”.
