25 Tips For A Better Life

               1. Take a 10-30 minute walk every day.   And while you walk, smile.  It is the                                  ultimate anti-depressant.

               2. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day.  Buy a lock if you have to.

               3. When you wake up in the morning complete the following statement, 'My purpose                    is to __________ today.'

               4. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is                                          manufactured in plants.

               5. Drink plenty of water. Eat blueberries, wild Alaskan salmon, broccoli, almonds &                      walnuts.

               6. Try to make at least three people smile each day.

              7. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip, energy vampires, issues of the past,                         negative thoughts or things you cannot control.  Instead invest your energy in the                        positive present moment.

               8. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a college kid with a                         maxed out charge card.

               9. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

              10. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

              11. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

              12. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

              13. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present.

              14. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all                               about.

              15. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.

              16. Frame every so-called disaster with these words: 'In five years, will this                                       matter?'

              17. Forgive everyone for everything.

              18. What other people think of you is none of your business.

              19. GOD heals EVERYTHING, in HIS time.

              20. However good or bad a situation is it will change.

              21. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick.   
                    Your friends will. Stay in touch.

              22. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

              23. Each night before you go to bed complete the following statements: I am                                   thankful for __________.  Today I accomplished _________.

              24. Remember that you are too blessed to be stressed.
