It's almost the start of a new school year, and some people see a new academic year as a fresh start or new beginning. Try these tips on how to change your life in 21 days and see how it works for you!
We've found 5 simple tricks to improve your life:
- Positive affirmations
- Cut back on unhealthy foods
- Eat more healthy foods
- Try meditation

Write Positive Affirmations
For 21 days, write down a positive thing about your day or your life.
These positive affirmations will give you after 21 days only a healthier and more positive look on you, your surroundings and your life.
This will attract positive vibrations into your life and keep away from you the negative aspects of the world around you.
Cut Back on Unhealthy Foods
This doesn't need to be a radical change, but a conscious effort to make better food choices.
Take one thing that is harmful to your diet and reduce or eliminate it. Salt, sugar, soft drinks, red meat, excess alcohol, etc.

Eat More Healthy Foods
Something as simple as eating an apple a day for 21 days will have a big effect on your entire diet. But how can one apple have so much influence, do you ask perhaps?
An apple, 10 nuts, a green vegetable, a big glass of water on waking in the morning, these are small gestures, but these gestures will make you aware of your diet and give you a feeling of power to have accomplished a good thing in your day.
Be ready for instant gratification!
Have you ever tried meditation?
Anyone I know who has ever tried meditation has found it to be incredibly relaxing and rewarding. Take some time to yourself to unwind and get in touch with yourself. Everyone deserves a little "me time".
Communicate With New People
You definitely have 21 people in your address book, email list or Facebook friends. So, choose 21 with whom you will communicate directly and to whom you will give good news or a compliment. "I liked your last haircut." "I have a new baby in the family, my daughter had a baby."
Just have a look at the Facebook thread or review your list of 21 positive things to find one to share. To communicate in a positive way will have a great impact on you and on those around you. Make your list and whether by phone, in writing, by text message or even in person for a coffee talk positively with a person. (Warning: if the communication drifts to the negative, change the subject to return to the positive aspects of the day.)
It is important to hold the 21 days and it is best to do your action at the same time if possible.
Also, making a commitment in a group or with a friend gives you more chance of success. And, you can share your day to encourage each other.
