The 3 Steps to feeling better, healing faster and being more effective in life are:
I know "It sounds too good to be true," but relaxing, recharging and refocusing your attention for 5 minutes or less at a time, throughout your day on a daily basis will help you feel better, heal faster and generally be more effective in life.

The practice I am recommending is based on the latest scientific opinions and 1000's of years of experience. Learning and practicing "Quantum Focusing" (Self-hypnotically enhanced mindfulness) can help you feel better, heal better and generally be more effective.
It works like this; your beliefs, expectations and state of being at any given moment in time sets the tone for how you feel, heal and function. Imagine that you are being assisted by someone who is bored, agitated, stressed out, preoccupied or in a bad mood. Now imagine that that someone is you. If you are negatively stressed, expecting the worse and/or are unfocused, it sets the tone for everything you do and experience. When you realize that the "state" of being you are in right now affects your experience and effectiveness, you can begin to improve your life.
Left unchecked, our unhealthy beliefs, expectations and states of being can be contaminants that can suck the joy out of our lives. The chronic negative stress caused by feeling this way can also have a deleterious effect on our health.
Luckily, relaxing, recharging and refocusing can be easy and fun, but don't take my word for it - Let it work for you.
Make it a daily habit!
To get the most out of this Quantum Focusing exercise, use it the first thing when you wake up and the last thing before going to sleep. Throughout the day and night, whenever changing activities, repeat this exercise to give yourself the Quantum Focusing edge and to bring yourself into the moment. As you do, you will automatically feel better and become more effective in whatever you are/will be doing.
1. Become comfortable with your surroundings as you allow your attention to focus on doing this exercise.

2. Without thinking about it, close and open your eyes, so you can continue to read this…now gently bring your attention to being inside of your body.
3. Fill your mind with a sense of occupying all of the space inside you from the bottom of your feet to the top of your head. Imagine being aware of every atom in your body dancing in total harmony.
As you say to yourself-
“I am at my best when I live with a happy heart, a peaceful mind and a playful spirit.”
Stay with repeating this to yourself for about 2 minutes…
