I got this as an email and thought it was quite a good reminder to go about each day. I generally don’t forward emails but this one has some practical advice that we all might benefit by putting into practice.
1. Drink plenty of water.
2. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a
3. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food
that is manufactured in plants.
4. Live with the 3 Es — Energy, Enthusiasm and Empathy
5. Make time to pray
6. Play more games
7. Read more books than you did in 2009
8. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day
9. Sleep for 7 hours
10. Take a 10-30 minutes walk daily. And while you walk, smile.
11. Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their
journey is all about.
12. Don’t have negative thoughts on things you cannot control.
Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.
13. Don’t over do. Keep your limits.
14. Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
15. Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip.
16. Dream more while you are awake
17. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
18. Forget issues of the past. Don’t remind your partner with His/her
mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.
19. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don’t hate others.
20. Make peace with your past so it won’t spoil the present.
21. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
22. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems
are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like
algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.
23. Smile and laugh more.
24. You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree…
25. Call your family often.
26. Each day give something good to others.
27. Forgive everyone for everything.
28. Spend time w/ people over the age of 70 & under the age of 6.
29. Try to make at least three people smile each day.
30. What other people think of you is none of your business.
31. Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends
will. Stay in touch.
32. Do the right thing!
33. Get rid of anything that isn’t useful, beautiful or joyful.
34. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
35. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
36. The best is yet to come..
37. Your Inner Most is filled with joy. So, be joy-filled.
Love this Annette…as soon as I get an inkjet refill I am definitely printing this out!
Thanks for taking the time to type this all out and sharing!
I’ll think about walking 30 minutes a day, but the smiling part? I was just telling John I need to stop smiling… It’s causing too many wrinkles. Just kidding… kind of! This is a great list!
Have a good night!
I need to print this and hang it next to my calendar.
Love, Annette H
These were wonderful..think I will copy them and re read them several times. blessings on your week. Hope you are warmer than I am…though my house is warm, it is super cold outside. The sun is trying to shine which will make my day.
