Draw a picture of yourself being healthy and whole. Make several copies of this picture and put it around your house.
Put cues in your environment, like colored stickers or dots. Place them where you will see them often. Each time you spot a cue, remind yourself of your new programs and new pictures.
Unplug your TV and stop reading the news for at least a month. Notice any effect on your overall health.
Read between the lines whenever you read, watch TV, or have a conversation, to discover the hidden illness programs around you. Write them down.
