Then one day when trying (unsuccesfully) to plan a house move, she realised that things couldn’t go on like this, and she hired a virtual PA assistant. At that point my life was transformed. By Ashley from One Stop Organisers. Remember; you wanted to change your life completely, and you made the deliberate decision by yourself. It takes discipline and hard work to achieve your life goals, and you'll need to be guided by your mind from the beginning. That means you'll need to have your mind fully set on achieving that change you long to see in your life. In the last blog post we talked about how our habitual emotional vocabulary shapes and controls much of our emotional experiences in life—how the labels we put upon our experience become our experience. Today, let’s take a look at how you can transform the quality of your entire life simply by becoming conscious of what habitual vocabulary you use for negative emotions, and shifting them. Jan 11, 2021 Achieving a healthier and happier life doesn’t have to be hard, overwhelming or something you do all at once. Just take it one day and one habit at a time. Here is my two week campaign to help you transform your life. Some of the tasks you may find easy, others you may find challenging and that’s ok.

REDUCING errors made during surgery, bringing school books to life, enabling us to browse shops from the comfort of home — virtual reality is not just about gaming, it will change our lives, according to some tech leaders.
“VR” is the buzz industry at Asia’s largest tech fair, Computex, being held in Taiwan’s capital Taipei this week.
The island is hoping to become a development hub for virtual reality technology.
But while VR is currently aimed at gamers, its evangelists forecast it will eventually be about much more than entertainment.
“We know that gaming will be the first wave of revenue and gamers the first wave of consumers, but our vision is larger than gaming,” said Raymond Pao, Vice President of VR New Technology at Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC, which recently released its first VR headset: Vive.
Pao says any industry that could use 3D may well end up exploiting the technology.
HTC is among major tech firms including Facebook and Samsung that have latched onto the immersive experience platform — forecast to become a huge market.
With the Vive device strapped to their heads, users at Computex “flew” over New York or threw grenades at enemies on a cobbled road of a deserted town.
But HTC has already branched out into the medical sector too.
The firm last year invested in a US start-up that uses virtual reality to help surgeons plan complicated brain operations.
Retail and education are also predicted to be the next frontier for VR and its cousin, augmented reality.
While virtual reality devices put users in fantasy worlds, augmented reality overlays holograms on an actual view.
“What we learn from textbooks or labs can be really dull, but VR and AR will greatly enhance learning abilities,” Zhu Bo, founder of InnoValley, a Chinese start-up investor based in Shenzhen, told AFP.
“It can also be used in e-commerce. In the future, you will step into a real scene, you can see the products on the shelves, touch and feel them. So our shopping experience will totally change,” said Zhu, who has invested in the field but did not give details.

‘No passing fad’
The global market size of virtual reality products may reach $5.1 billion this year and is projected to more than double to $10.9 billion in 2017, according to Taipei-based market intelligence provider TrendForce.
Sony is launching its PlayStation VR headgear later this year, while Google is coming up with a new VR platform called Daydream.
British firm ARM also announced this week that its new processors will enable mobile phones to run virtual and augmented reality features by 2017, and US tech giant Microsoft says its software will be compatible with “mixed reality devices”.
However, despite the enthusiasm, there is still an air of uncertainty over whether the technology is ripe to take off.
Some say companies must flesh out the “ecosystem” by creating more VR-related hardware and software for consumers.
“To experience VR, you need a powerful engine. Without content, you can’t experience anything,” said L.Z. Wang, managing director of Taiwan for California-based chipmaker AMD.
The current VR products on the market only allow users to immerse in a movie or a game on their own, which could also limit the technology from catching on with consumers, experts say.
“A lot of times with the demos, they are single user experiences. You just kind of go, ‘Oh, that was fun,’ and walk away,” said Justin Hendrix, executive director of NYC Media Lab, an academic research group funded by tech companies.
Other inhibitors include cost — HTC Vive headgear is about $800 — and dizziness for some who strap on the headsets.
But believers say it is a matter of time for those issues to be resolved. “VR and AR is not hype, it’s an era,” said Zhu from InnoValley. “In another three to five years, it will affect everyone’s life.”
Ideas of technologies such as flying cars, holograms, virtual reality, and human-like AI have been with us for decades, but now those ideas are coming to fruition and virtual reality is leading the charge. With companies like Facebook and Apple laying out 10 year business plans of what they expect our futures to look like, we have only but to anticipate the ways in which these technologies will influence our lives. VR is still an infant in terms to its development and societal acceptance, but as with any great idea, it takes time to perfect. There is really no telling how fast companies will be able to make the jump from good VR to great VR, but it is only a matter of time and patience. As far as I can tell with all the recent developments and advances in VR technology, there are already at least 4 ways VR is going to change your life.
1. You will “travel the world”
If you have ever wished you could spend a week in the cities of Europe or see the views from the tops of the Swedish alps then you’re in luck. VR will change the way you think of travel. Not only will it satisfy your urge for experience, but it will be cost effective as well. The average VR headset is currently sitting around $500 and with time that price is all but guaranteed to drop.
Gone are the days of saving thousands of dollars for a vacation because with only a few buttons and switches you will be able to transport yourself anywhere on Earth. While VR may not provide the richness and sensations you might get from being physically present in a certain location (yet), it is definitely the next best thing.
2. Overcome your fears
Death and public speaking claim the top two spots for the greatest fears of human beings, but VR is set to change that. According to the Virtual Reality Medical Center, VR is being used in methods to treat various forms of panic and anxiety disorders along with fear of flying, public speaking, and claustrophobia to name a few. Tuneup utilities windows 10. There is even talk of VR being able to reduce or eliminate the fear of death (Read about it here).
Imagine living your life without fear or worry (the irrational kind) and no longer getting in your own way. Through the power of VR you could potentially eliminate the fears that hold you back from enjoying life to the fullest. Who knows, maybe you will discover some hidden talents that were previously hidden behind your fears.
3. Learn skills and gain experience
As a college student and even simply as a person it can be crazy hard to find ways to get hands on experience. Google and Youtube have created some amazing ways to learn things, but often times words and videos are not the same as practice. Reading about or watching someone build a computer is very different from actually building a computer. The existence of VR now provides a way to get hands experience in these areas.
Instead of making a mistake through trial and error, you will quite literally and “virtually” be able to practice as many times as needed to perfect your craft. VR programs can provide live training and suggestions in the virtual world so that you are better prepared to put your skills to use in the real world.
The aircraft giants Boeing and Lockheed Martin are already putting these technologies to use (read here). On the job training is being streamlined and enhanced, thus employees are becoming more effective and better equipped to do their jobs. In both a professional and casual sense this technology could be revolutionary in modern education.
4. A new way to “socialize”
Ever since Facebook came into existence in 2004 the word “social” has taken on a whole new meaning. The existence of social media has connected the world in a way that most people never thought possible and companies like Facebook continue to redefine what it means to be connected.
Ways To Transform Your Life
Similar to Apple’s Facetime technology, Facebook has created a way to virtually interact with your friends and family in a virtual world through the use of avatars. This virtual hangout space as Nick Statt puts it is bold and bizarre, yet it looks to be adopted in every home. This method of communicating could revolutionize conference, club, and business meetings by allowing members to be virtually present, but physically absent.
101 Ways To Transform Your Life
The use of avatars in this virtual interaction is definitely only a first step as the technology has a lot of room to grow. Given the direction of technology’s advancing capabilities, I wonder just how far off we really are from having VR experiences so convincing that we struggle to discern the difference between the real and the virtual.
