I'm sure you have heard of Mesmerism or feeling mesmerised, but you may not know that this comes from Franz Anton Mesmer (1754-1815). He was interested in magnetism, having watched a demonstration of ‘magnetic cures’ and exorcisms by a priest called Father Maximillian Hell in 1774.
Are you a glass half full or a glass half empty type of thinker? To be fair, all of us think negatively from time to time. Something happens and it flits through our minds that the results of it will be bad, or uncomfortable, even though we're aware there is no particular reason that things won’t turn out well. The problem with negative thinking is that it can take over. From being an occasional, fleeting thought, it can become overwhelming, and feel as if it’s out of your control.

So here is my approach to change - an alternative to those resolutions that is fun and effective at lifting your spirits.
