Self Help

New Year’s resolutions are an annual tradition for millions of people and the odds are good that you’ve made and broken resolutions several times. You CAN succeed with your resolutions and it may be easier than you think.

Sample Resolutions

Some of the most popular New Year’s resolutions are:

  • I want to lose weight.
  • I will exercise more.
  • I will eat healthier.

The problem with each of the above is that there is no set goal and no action plan on how to achieve weight loss, fitness, increased earnings or a better relationship. If they were phrased like:

  • I will lose 10 pounds in the next 30 days and 50 pounds this year.
  • I will take a 30 minute walk 3 times a week and lift weights for 30 minutes a session 3 times a week this year.
  • I will include one additional vegetable or salad in my daily meals OR I will replace 1 fast food meal per week with a soup and salad bar meal.

The difference between the first list and the second is the ability to define the goal and set an action plan so success can be achieved.

It’s much easier to see that the second set of resolutions have clearly defined goals. The person that says they’re going to lose 10 pounds in 30 days can measure their progress. Ten pounds breaks down to an average weight loss of 2.5 pounds per week and you can both achieve this goal AND measure your progress.

When you can measure your progress, you can see your success or lack of success in anything and this makes it easier to stay on track.

Will you slip back into your old habits? Absolutely! The trick is to acknowledge that you’ll stay on track only about 80 percent of the time, at most. Simply get yourself back on track and continue without berating yourself for straying.

You are human and you are trying to correct bad habits that have been part of you for months, if not years, so plan for success and work towards it regardless of the resolution or obstacles.

Now a day’s psychology is such a profound and a successful field though human emotions. In the field of understanding in the human mind deserves a bounty of effort and man power. The two major emotions that humans tend to struggle cruelly are depression and anger. Several say that controlling anger and depression is related to the point of view of our life and others demand that drugs are required. Everyone has an opinion to this delicate subject, and all of them assume only theirs is correct.

Anger is “an emotional state that varies in intensity from mild irritation to intense fury and rage,” according to psychologist doctors. Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion but it can stifle our emotional freedom. But when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems-problems at work, in your personal relationships, and in the overall quality of your life. And it can make you feel as though you’re at the mercy of an unpredictable and powerful emotion.

In dealing with anger, since it is impossible to fulfill all our desires or to stop unwanted things happening to us, we need to find a different way of relating to frustrated desires and unwanted occurrences. We need to learn patient acceptance. Patience is a mind that is able to accept, fully and happily, whatever occurs. It is much more than just gritting our teeth and putting up with things. Being patient means to welcome wholeheartedly whatever arises, having given up the idea that things should be other than what they are.

It is always possible to be patient; there is no situation so bad that it cannot be accepted patiently, with an open, accommodating, and peaceful heart. As what I have experience from my anger problem for years, I could feel anger boiling and I know it unreasonable to get me upset but still I could not control it. This kind of feeling make me scared because I used to threaten people, until I learned to control anger. If you do not know how to control anger, you must learn – both for your own sake and the sake of those around you.

Many different strategies and skills for anger management intervention have been tried and tested. Some of the most empirically supported interventions are cognitive-behavioral interventions including relaxation coping skills, cognitive interventions, behavioral coping and social skills training, and problem-solving skills training. The goal of anger management is to reduce both your emotional feelings and the physiological arousal that anger causes.

You can’t get rid of, or avoid, the things or the people that enrage you, nor can you change them, but you can learn to control your reactions. And I found out that, as you can see it on the news regarding American drivers, named Adam Sandler and Jack Nicholson. Even persons have a controlling anger, granted that some are worse compared to others, but humans do harbor anger issues. Some of them keep on battle and negatively affect their health with anger on regular basis still it is essential to deal with them. Some ways you can do this are through meditation, therapy, physical activity and mental imagery. Obviously anger management therapy is a commonly known treatment for controlling anger.

Though, not everyone is open enough to obtain such aid, with proper meditation allow you to relax your mind and body, clear all the burdens and negativity. This is healthy and will reduce your feelings of anger. The idea of using hypnosis or meditation to control anger has grown in popularity recently. No one took the idea seriously at all. Everyone thought that you had to deal with anger intellectually. Anything that relaxes you emotionally, such as meditation, taking a long walk, taking a hot shower, or reading, can be a good method of controlling anger.

One thing here is physical venting this is one of my favorite in controlling anger. This involve through games such as basketball, rock climbing, swimming, martial arts, running or weight training. These great physical activities can vent feelings of anger at the end of your workout. The important thing is to find out what works for you and to do it!

Unfortunately, controlling anger is easier said and done. There are many methods out there nowadays, but none of them work for everyone. And there are several ways you can learn to control your anger. Relaxation is one of the best stress and anger management techniques. You can learn to relax through meditation, guided imagery, deep breathing, and hypnosis. When employing any of these techniques, you will be able to relax and calm down whenever you feel your temper getting the best of you. I found out that the best result from combining these two techniques which is anger management and anger therapy is we can learn tips and tricks to control our anger before it boils over and the have both good ways in controlling anger.

Another way of controlling anger here is once we fully accept other people as they are without the slightest judgment or reservation – as all the enlightened beings accept us – then there is no basis for problems in our relations with others. Problems do not exist outside our mind, so when we stop seeing other people as problems they stop being problems. The person who is a problem to a non-accepting mind does not exist in the calm, clear space of patient acceptance.

For me, I had to find my own gear for controlling anger. It was a long and involved process of trial and error. Recognizing that you are angry is the first step in dealing with it. Some people find it difficult to admit they are angry perhaps because they view their feelings as inappropriate or not valid. These people may deny their feelings therefore choosing not to deal with them. And also recognizing the reason for your feelings of anger is an important step in dealing with the anger. After analyzing the reasons, you will decide in your mind if the anger is reasonable or justifiable. If you decide the anger is unrealistic you can diffuse the feelings. If you decide the anger is realistic, you can better decide how to deal with your feelings. A network of people to help you is the most important tool you can have for controlling anger. Without it, it is impossible to succeed.

Self help and self improvement programs are tried by many people and unfortunately too many people fail AND it is usually NOT their fault.

Your brain is an amazingly complex organic computer that has its initial programming done by your DNA. Who you’ve become has been mostly determined by all of the programming that has been added since birth.

Everything you’ve been exposed to has been recorded by your brain even if you cannot recall it. All of your senses record all of the time AND the more you are exposed to any sight, sound, smell or touch the more that is imprinted on your mind.

You first learned to speak by first listening to everyone around you talking and you then tried to mimic them. The more you practiced talking the better you got at it.

When you got to grade school and first started to learn how to write, you probably had to practice writing each letter starting with them as very big letters. As you got better at writing, you were able to make them smaller, faster, smoother and more consistently.

I’m willing to bet that you eventually reached a point where you could pick up a pen or pencil and write what you wanted without consciously thinking about the act of writing.

This level of competence means your subconscious mind thinks about the mechanics of writing while your conscious mind deals with the content you are writing.

You can reach this level of competence in almost anything with enough practice on the fundamentals.

Your mind CANNOT distinguish between good, bad, real or imagined.

Because your mind doesn’t have the ability to make these distinctions, you can trick it into believing something you imagine often enough should be your reality and it will help you make it happen.

We all have habits in our lives that we want to break and it IS possible but only if done the right way.

You probably acquired the habit through repetition and you will need repetition to get rid of the habit.

Many self help programs give you positive affirmations that are SUPPOSED to help you build new habits BUT they do NOT include affirmations where you repeatedly give your mind permission to release the bad habit.

I firmly believe you must do both AND engage multiple senses so the desired habit becomes your new reality faster. As you read your affirmations, write your affirmations and listen to them regularly, they will become imprinted on your subconscious mind quicker.

On average, something you do consistently each day starts to become a habit in 28-30 days. When you are trying to release a bad habit and instill a new one with the aide of a self help program, the process may take much longer because the old habit may have been part of your life for years.

Even with the right mindset, actions and self help program, you MUST be consistent and persistent in your attempt to improve yourself.

I’ve used several self help programs with no success and I’m sure you have too BUT I’ve found the programs at Think Right Now do work. Good luck in your quest for a better you and I sincerely hope you find the self help program that fits your needs.

You may wonder about Think Right Now products and whether they really work. I can say that at least one DOES work even when directions aren’t exactly followed.

The product I’m talking about is the I Am Healed NOW CD by Think Right Now. I received this CD as a Christmas gift this last December. I made a back up copy of the CD and started playing it 24/7.

The directions recommend reading the affirmations at least once a day AND physically writing out the 10-15 you agree with the most but I’m not physically able to write out the affirmations and I seldom take the time to open the file and read the affirmations.

I wanted this product in the hopes that it would help with some of the health issues I have as a paralyzed person that’s confined to bed.

I’ve had a recurring bed sore in one my coccyx for 37 years and it has been open this last time for 9 years and was about 9cm deep. Wound care specialists repeatedly told me there was nothing that could be done that would result in a permanent healing. Another that that I have has been consistently open and sometimes bone deep for nine years. This wound is on my left shin and wound care specialists also stated nothing could be done for it.

The recommended treatment for the leg wound was salt packs when bone deep otherwise just antibiotic salve and a Telfa covering when the bone wasn’t exposed. This sore was 3 inches long and about an inch wide.

Since I started using the I Am Healed NOW CD, the sore on my leg has completely healed over and remained closed for a month AND the sore in my coccyx is now 6cm in depth and slightly narrower at the surface.

The ONLY thing that was changed was the addition of the I Am Healed NOW CD to my routine.

I’ve also seen improvements in other skin problems, I don’t crave sweets as much as I did, I’m willing to leave food on my plate when the servings I’m given are too large and other minor health related items that the CD’s affirmations address. Proven result by altering my thinking is the best endorsement I can give this product and I heartily urge you to read the testimonials associated with EVERY product offing from Think Right Now.

Depression has many different causes and different levels of severity. A medical professional or a family member may say you have a mild depression but it feels severe to you because you are the one living it. You may be depressed if you always feel the blah’s, sleep much more than usual, have trouble sleeping, are never in the mood to be around others or have a good time, your disposition changes from sunny to being down or even disliking yourself and a sudden loss of self confidence. There are other symptoms but those are a few.

The diagnosis and treatment of severe depression is often done by psychologists and they use everything from drugs to treat the symptoms to psychotherapy. How much or how little success is achieved with these treatments varies with each individual.

Too many people that are experiencing depression go through a period of denial before acknowledging the problem. Be honest with yourself and admit you have a problem so the treatment can be easier and you start living a life that you enjoy faster.

Some recognized types of depression are:

Menopause and Depression
Pregnancy Depression
And More

Moving, losing a loved one, weather changes and serious illnesses or injuries can also trigger depression so please don’t think you are alone or that there isn’t help available for you or a loved one.
