HELLO APRIL

hello to a few new things to do {just to shake things up}!


1. Get in tune with your charismatic side. You know that charismatic person who is always the life of the party? Start visualising yourself as THAT person. Believe that you are charismatic, even if you think you fail at being the centre of attention. Lie to yourself constantly and tell yourself that you are warm and gregarious. Belief is the first step! Reality will come soon after.

2. Relax! Yes, work is very important but you need to take some time to chill out everyday or you are going to burn out faster than a candle with no oxygen. Plus, you need to reward yourself for a job well done. What’s the use of doing all of that work if you can’t enjoy yourself and have a little fun from time to time – yes?

3. Learn to use your eyes to their full potential: Start to make constant eye contact when in conversation. Looking away (especially down) is a sign of inferiority and uncertainty. Instead, look at your conversation partner dead in the eyes and keep them locked on.

4. Be mysterious. Don’t let off everything about you and definitely leave out some major details. There is something both alluring and mesmerising about someone who no one knows fully about. We’re not saying that you can’t confide in anyone or that you should alienate yourself. Just think James Bond.

5. Come up with a life mantra. You know, like “Live life to the fullest,” but not as cliché. Make it something that really hits home with you so that you will actually stick to it. Make sure it’s not so specific that it rarely applies but also not so general that it’s not personal.

6. Get good at something. Call it a hobby or a passion, whatever it is, just get damn good at it. Your occupation does not count! Make it something that you can practice often enough to excel at. It can be anything but choose something that: 1. You’re passionate about, and 2. You can bust out at any moment to display your skills for any discerning crowd.

7. Keep your brain sharp. Start stimulating your brain and try something that you do NOT know how to do! Master the art of sudoku or crosswords, or start a course at your local college. You need to be learning new things to keep your brain honest. Form new synapses by forcing your mind to work in ways it hasn’t worked before. Just like physical workouts, doing too much of the same exercise will eventually give no results. Try to switch things up!

8. Read something inspirational right before bed and after waking. This will set get you in a great mood for sleep and for the day. Read anything from a famous speech to your favourite self-improvement book. Try to read something that get’s you really excited in the morning especially so that you’ll leave your house beaming with energy and totally inspired.

10. Work out those abs. Above any other muscle group in the entire body, the abs are the most important. They constitute your core, the center point of your body. Your ability to balance comes almost completely from the strength of your abdominal muscles and balance is vital to performance in any physical activity.

11. Don’t burn bridges. Maintain your relationships with people even if you think you’re never going to see them again – eg. if you’re quitting your job, don’t bag out your boss before leaving! You might run into him/her again later and life and wish you had never severed ties so harshly. You never know when you might need the help of someone you knew in the past. Plus there is already too much hatred in this world, why add more towards the people you interact with?

12. Learn to use and trust your subconscious/intuition. Try to spend a little time in silence every day and you’ll start to tune into a feeling that tells you to do something. Don’t mistake your own reasoning and thoughts for those of your subconscious. If you can track where the thought came from, (this thought led to that thought which led to this thought, etc.) then it was not from your subconscious. Learning to accurately discern between the two will allow you to tap into knowledge that you don’t consciously have.
