1. Acknowledge your personal power and the capabilities that's already within you. Listen to Marianne Williamson's 'Living your Dharma' (click on the weblink and scroll down along the right hand column) to hear how you can break through psychological barriers that might be preventing you from connecting with the bigger world:
2. Being authentic. Many people put on a brave face when they are struggling; showing an outward appearance of being happy and pleasant. Keeping this up can be an extra burden on their shoulders. Be open to trusting another and expressing your needs could open up new ways of communication. Watch Brene Brown's 'Power of Vulnerability' TED Talk for inspiration: http://www.ted.com/talks/brene_brown_on_vulnerability.html
3. Years ago I was on a training course and the trainer gave us all bespoke gifts. I received a great book called 'How to Change the World for under a Fiver.' The book contains 50 actions, all to add value to the world we live in. The book cover is also a poster so that you can remind yourself of the actions. This is a great gift for yourself and for others http://wearewhatwedo.org/portfolio/change-the-world-for-a-fiver/
4. Love and courage I really do believe these two words are great motivators for why people do what they do. Spend some time listening to the inspiring stories of others and you can hear the powerful force behind the words. Think about your own life and your greatness.
5. Sleep better - it really benefits your health. For wellbeing and relaxation podcasts check out the Mental Health Foundation for free downloads: http://www.mentalhealth.org.uk/help-information/podcasts/
Keep the bed clear from laptops and handheld devices. The bed is meant to be for sleep and lovemaking only. You might like to create a relaxation area to wind down half an hour before bedtime. Decorate it with candles, play soothing music and whatever else you fancy to help you relax.
