Help: Begin my Day

Introduction

The subconscious brain uses mostly images and emotions to store and communicate. LifeChanger includes a ready-to-go Begin my Day presentation using cutting edge psychological principles to start the day inspired for maximum productivity. The Begin my Day presentation includes emotion provoking, inspiring images of things you are grateful for, empowering affirmations, a reminder of your mission and values and a representation of your goals, all presented with calming or stirring music. You can customize the images, text and music  to make it most inspiring to you personally. Watching this every morning when you wake up will get your day off to an inspired start.  A reminder of your major goals at the beginning of every day allows you to plan a goal-oriented day for maximum productivity and a reminder of your stated “mission” and values also helps ensure that you are living in-line with your authentic self.   Including a visual image of your goals at the end of the Begin My Day presentation evokes the feeling you’ll have when you attain it, which ensures that your subconscious mind will work for you, looking for opportunities that will help you achieve your goals with the least effort.  

Immediately after watching Begin my Day, within LifeChanger,  while at your most inspired and goal oriented you should brainstorm any action steps that come to mind and enter them into your To Do list  ready for scheduling in your Day Planner  or for future action reminders (see notifications). 

Open it by clicking the blue Begin my Day button on the Menu or by clicking the yellow Begin my Day button at the top of on the Desktop.

Use one of our standard presentations or create your own personalized one by clicking the gray Begin my Day button in the Settings section of the Menu.   There, you can add text, pictures and music that are meaningful to you.

Where do I start?

Tap/click the    button at the bottom right of LifeChanger to show the menu and then  Tap/click the blue Begin my Day button.  Alternatively, tap/click the yellow Begin my Day button at the top of your Day Planner.  The presentation will start straight away.

Take me to the Begin my Day presentation  in the web version of LifeChanger now.

Presentation

The Begin my Day presentation will begin immediately.  It will cycle through the slides you’ve chosen and play your music.  Press Esc if you’re using a keyboard or tap/click anywhere on the image or text to show video style buttons at the bottom of the page.  These allow you go back a slide, pause the presentation or go forward a slide.   Use the < and > buttons above the video controls to increase or decrease the time each slide is displayed.

Goals that you’ve defined in LifeChanger will each be displayed on their own slide.  While you’re still feeling inspired after the presentation is complete, you should add tasks to your ToDo list that will take you towards those goals.

The final page of the presentation is for your own links.  For instance you may want to visit your own meditation or exercise site, etc.

Begin my Day Settings

We’ve provided a default Begin My Day slideshow presentation with LifeChanger but, to get the most out of it, you should change the presentation so it has images, music and text that are meaningful to you.

To change the text, images or music in Begin my Day, tap/click the menu button    and then the gray Begin my Day button.   You’ll see an ‘accordion’ – i.e. a series of section headers that expand to show settings inside them, when clicked.   The top section lets you choose the music you want to accompany the presentation and the rest of the sections let you choose images and text in different categories.

Background audio

If you like the music that’s pre-installed with your Begin my Day presentation you can keep it.  Otherwise, choose from one of our Library tracks or upload your own.

If you upload your own, it must be in one of the common audio formats such as WAV, MP3, AIFF, etc.  To upload your own, tap/click the Upload button and browse to your music file.

You can play the music without the Begin my Day presentation by clicking the black, Play button in Settings.

 

Slides

Use the remaining sections to configure slides to appear in Begin my Day.  Each section has a similar layout described here.

To add a new slide tap/click the Add item button

  this is a read/only preview of how the slide will look in the presentation.  i.e.  it shows the style of the text that will be displayed on your chosen image.  

 tap/click this button to take a picture with your phone/tablet.  The button is only visible on applicable devices – i.e. those with a camera!  When you take a picture, you’ll get the opportunity to use it or ignore it and take another one.

 tap/click this button to choose one of your own images from your computer, phone or tablet.  A selector will be shown and the style of that selector depends on the kind of device you’re using (e.g. Windows PC,  IPhone, etc.).

 tap/click this button to choose a picture from our image library.  We’ve highlighted some suitable images.  Alternatively,  browse the full library. 

 tap/click this button to set the size of the text that will overlay the image.

 tap/click this button to set the color of the text that will overlay the image.

 tap/click this button to set the opacity/transparency of the area behind the text.  If you have a complex image you might want to set a high opacity so the text is on a solid background that’s distinct from the image. 

Each section has a checkbox “Show section title in slideshow”.  As the name suggests, it that box is ticked, the section title will be displayed in addition to the slide text in your Begin my Day presentation.   You might want to have it ticked for slides in the “I’m grateful for section” but not in the “Affirmations” section, etc.

Most sections have a selector that we’ve pre-populated with some suitable lines of text.   Choose one of these as the slide text or type your own.

To delete a slide, tap/click the trash can icon on the right hand side.

In the next sections we’ll describe the different types of slide.
