Hello there, champion of true wellness...

It is very easy to get stuck in a rut, and repeatedly do things that aren't actually good for you in the long-term. Do you know what we mean?

But, it's not so easy to change your behaviour and adapt to a new healthy lifestyle. Don't worry, Henry Jones's amazing Challenges will  lift you out of your rut and put you on the straight and narrow path to finding your true-self, healing your body, and enjoy radiant health and vitality every day for the rest of your life. They are a legitimate chance to start doing things that are good for you (and others) and developing new healthy habits.

The key to your success will be to plan your days in advance, using a common structure that gives you a new routine. Believe us: A solid daily routine will help you to break old habits and build new ones. It’s also easy to get into the swing of things when you repeat a daily schedule.

So, carefully study the recommended day plan set out below. Imprint the daily structure deep into your mind, and remember it. Even better, follow the recommended day plan on your upcoming Challenge. This is a surefire way to ensure you will succeed. That’s a fact!


Each day is a new day to a wise person. Wake up early and get a good start to your day. Celebrate the dawn. Give thanks - you're alive. 

1) Meet The Sunrise.

Start each day by waking up to see the sunrise. You’ll need discipline here. But hey, that’s a good thing. You can’t be your true-self without discipline. It's the most essential value to have on a healing and wellness journey.

2) Have A Morning Tonic.

The very first thing you should do is make a morning tonic. Drink a mug of warm (not boiling) water with a tablespoon of lemon juice (honey optional). Not only is lemon and water alkalizing and therefore good for your body, but it puts you on the right trajectory for the day. Try it for a few days, and then you’ll know what we mean. This is your first conscious and deliberate act from your true-self to promote healing in your body. It's therefore very important.

3) Review Your Day Plan.

Next, sit down with your morning tonic and your Workbook and look over your plans for the day. It’s important to combine these two activities. You’ll soon develop a mental program that makes a connection between your morning tonic and the Workbook. This anchors your morning meditation. It’s an essential habit to cultivate on your healing or wellness journey. Read your Workbook, and meditate on the day ahead. 

4) Soak Up Sunshine.

Let soft sunlight (or natural light) shine on your eyelids for 5–10 minutes to soak up Vitamin D. Center yourself and do breathing exercises. This is another act from your true-self for your true-self in order to promote health and healing. Getting into this habit is one of the most pleasurable things you can do. Trust us: You'll come to treasure these moments.

5) Stretch Your Body.

Stretch your body for 15 minutes or longer. It's very beneficial for you to open your neural pathways, loosen up, do mild exercise, and focus inward in the early mornings.


Don't Make Excuses!

In case you're thinking you won't have time in the mornings to do these activities, you're wrong!

There is always time. Just wake up earlier! You'll only need an hour or so to connect with your true-self and promote health in the morning. But, the huge benefits you'll receive will make it worth your while. Promise!
If you just grimaced at the thought of waking up a bit earlier, then that's your ego-mind gagging at the idea of losing control over you. Ignore it! When you make time for your true-self and heal your body in the morning, you set a precedent for the rest of your day. Try it, you'll see!


Let your days be filled with activities that reinforce your desire to be your true-self, heal your body, and enjoy radiant health and vitality every day for the rest of your life. The activities are anchors. They'll also be the mainstays of your new, improved lifestyle. 

1) Stick To Your Plan.

Do the activities you scheduled in your Workbook throughout the day. Keep checking in on your day plan. Do your best to stick to the times, but don't become too rigid or too stressed if your plans run late.  Just go with the flow, and keep striving for a True Day.

2) Practice Mindfulness.

Try to "be" in the present moment as much as possible. It helps to breathe deeply and slowly. 

Tip: There will be times when you'll be distracted - accept it. But, use the precious moments of solitude or serenity you find during the day to relax your body and be fully present. 

3) Say Positive Affirmations.

Whenever possible, repeat the prescribed Daily Affirmation or say your own. This is a great way to program your subconscious mind.

Tip: Create some cues for yourself, like after brushing your teeth, waiting for a kettle to boil, driving in your car, or 2-minutes before opening your front door.

4) Stay Positive.

Sometimes things happen that bring you down - expect them to happen. But remember, how you respond is always your choice.

Tip: Watch your life unfold around you as if you are watching a movie starring someone else. Observe, process, and then respond from your true-self. Keep a positive attitude. Don't let anything get you down.

5) Make Yourself Happy.

Deliberately do something that makes you happy everyday. It's essential to have a Happy Plan. This is the secret to true and lasting happiness.

Tip: Do Preliminary Exercise 0.2. It will make you happy.

6) Be kind and gentle.

Being kind and gentle towards people reduces stress and conflict and improves your relationships.

Tip: Lavishing praise on other people makes them and you feel great. It's a powerful technique to connect with your true-self. Do it. Look for genuine ways to compliment and acknowledge everyone who comes your way.
Today is all you have. The 'AWAKENESS' you experience between sleeps is your life. It unfolds day-to-day. So, make the most of every single day. You won't regret it! Your life is the most precious thing you've got.


Set time aside in the evening to write in your Workbook, do the Daily Exercises, and plan the next day. Follow these guidelines:

1) Set The Scene.

The more you put into your evening sessions - the more you'll get out of them. Makes these occasions special - there are only  few of them in your whole life!

Tip: Light candles and incense, and listen to soft music. It's inspiring to create a nice ambiance.

2) Start With A Mediation.

Meditate for 10 minutes or longer. This is a great time to practice visualization, reflection, and gratitude. This practice puts you in the right frame of mind for the Daily Exercises.

Tip: Read the Tutorial on How to Meditate or listen to the Podcast. 

3) Do The Daily Exercises.

The prescribed Daily Exercises require at least one hour a day to complete, so make time to do them. (If you compare this time spent to the hundreds, if not thousands, of hours you’ve spent watching television, it’s a small investment to make to ensure your future well-being, isn’t it?)

4) Update Your Workbook.

Your Workbook is the tool you need to do the Challenges properly. It becomes your roadmap to true wellness. Work through it diligently.

Tip: Read the blogpost called: How to write in your Workbook.

5) Plan The Day Ahead:

This is definitely the most important element of Henry Jones's Challenges. Planning ahead is the key to success. Complete tomorrow's Day Schedule and then visualize yourself doing the activities. 

Tip: Read the tutorial called: The True Power of Planning Ahead.

6) Go to bed early

A good night's rest is essential. If you go to bed late, you'll struggle to get up early.

Tip: If you're accustomed to going to bed late, you'll need to train your mind and body to sleep. Don't look for things to do or watch after your session. Have a warm bath and go to bed. 
The secret is to go to bed at night knowing you did everything you planned to do to connect with your true-self that day, and knowing exactly what you plan to do tomorrow. This is called a True-Day

A Quick Word on Physical Exercise:

  • Exercise for 20 minutes at least three times on the Challenge.  Why not check out our HJX Challenge?

  • Stretch at least three times. This is a great time to learn Yo-Chi.
