Welcome to Thirty Days Of Change – Manage Stress And Build A Successful Lifestyle.

Ever feel like there’s a weight around your neck and that there simply has to be a better way? Do you find life surrounds you with the mediocre, and that you’re missing out on the things you want to do? Do you long to break out of the mundane and the ordinary, and to leap forward and grab your destiny?

Thirty Days Of Change is about letting go of the small stuff, and climbing out of the quagmire. It’s about understanding that your future is out there for you to grab and engage with. It’s about living life, and leaving the boredom of the average to people who feel comfortable with being… well, average.

This thirty day course will help you manage stress, improve the relationships in your life and overcome things that are blocking you. It’s going to help you get back in touch with the intuition that steers you in the direction that’s right for you. Many people have found that working through thirty days of change once a year helps them enormously. It’s free, and it works.

Each day you will receive an email. It will have suggestions, and some homework. Nothing much, just five minutes or perhaps a little more if you wish to put more effort into it. Remember, the more you put in, the more you’ll likely get out of this. Some people come to this from a time of difficulty. Others simply decide they want to get physically and mentally stronger. In each case we are a here to help you grow and develop.

This course was created by Rob Hadley and the team at Vancouver Hypnotherapy Inc. It’s been helping people for the last five years from all walks of life. We get email from a diverse range of people, from the world of stage and screen, to students and even from one person in a refugee camp in Turkey. They all have one thing in common, they are ready to embrace change and do what it takes to find a better life.

Over a thousand individuals have completed their 30 days, and we’ve received huge acclaim for this project. Ironically, it sat online for months without anyone really doing much with it (because it’s fully automated), until we checked the email responses and realized how popular it had become! Now psychologists, HR professionals and counselors from all over the world suggest their clients sign up, and we’re happy to support them where ever they may be.

This is a free service. We never charge for it.

About the course and how it came into existence.

Thirty Days Of Change is a program of self development. In working with many individuals struggling to manage their changing lives I have learned many of the things that help – and found many of the things that don’t.  In this online course we touch on areas that will help with sleep, exercise, diet, relationship management, workplace performance  and your ability to manage stress. My team and I have created a course that addresses many of the underlying causes of difficulties at work, at home or with our general health. It is also intended to bring out your leadership qualities and develop them.

In 1991 I was a young press photographer working for Associated Press. I was sent into South Sudan to cover the war in the south. At the time conditions were thought to be hard, though no one really knew what was going on in the remote and poorly understood country.

After a tiny aid plane left me in Nasir, a remote town in the south east I walked toward Ethiopia – there being no cars, no gas, no money and most of all no food anywhere. I had a hunch that the instability in Ethiopia would have repercussions in the border area. I walked with two Nuer tribesmen along the Sobat, a branch of the White Nile. The hauntingly empty landscape was remote but beautiful. We would sleep on the ground, under a shade tree and start our walking with the rising sun.

As we slowly moved east we woke one day to a sound that was a little like that of a football crowd. That day, instead of the empty flat land with scrub bushes and ant hills the only landmark, we were greeted with the sight of a slow mass of humanity snaking across the land towards us.

This was the movement of 120, 000 people, mostly women and children, walking out of Ethiopia (where President Mengistu had been deposed days before) and returning to the land they had left years before. Starved and dying they walked, and faltered and died on that mass exodus back into Sudan – a country ravaged by a viscous war of its own.

This was what the press later described as an exodus of biblical proportions. Each morning we would hear the sound of the Sudanese Air Force Antonov bombers, and run for cover as they bombed this sprawling mass of humanity, claiming that they were a rebel army. The bombs fell from about 10,000 feet. We could see them fall toward us, and there was literally nowhere to hide. You never forget the sound of the engines.

The death toll was enormous. And yet most people found their way to Nasir, where Unicef set up initially a tiny relief station, but what later became an enormous emergency response effort.

During that time I learned a bit about worry, and coping with disaster. I can remember seeing tribesmen walking naked, carrying only their AK47s. Clothing, the shame of their nakedness, embarrassment was all left behind. It became irrelevant. Pride is an expensive commodity.

These people had nothing. Literally, nothing. A mother would carry a child as best she could and move ever westward toward help, not knowing if there was food or when relief might arrive. The people became so hungry they would eat this coarse grass that grew in the hope it would give some nutrition.

Eventually, we learn what the important stuff is. Life is too short to worry about the other stuff.

In working on yourself you will start to reassess what’s important in your own life. Some of these things will be obvious. In other cases there will be a slowly dawning realisation that some value or idea that has always been ingrained in you is actually entirely irrelevant. Be prepared to change your mind – literally. There’s nothing wrong with changing your view – it’s how we adapt and change. It is in many ways our greatest strength. If we remain the same, we do the same things – we’ll experience the same results and often the same disappointments. All that changes is that it’s no longer a surprise.

We need to adapt. It’s what kept this species we belong to on top. And as my son so aptly puts it when he plays a Halo, “Stand still and die…”
