This is one of those lists I must have picked up many years ago and I would share its original author, but the sheet I have has no names on it so I’ll claim this going forward.

  1. TakeΒ  a 10-30 minute walk every day. And while you walk, smile. πŸ™‚
  2. Sit in silence for at least ten minutes each day.
  3. Sleep for at least seven hours.
  4. Live with the 3 E’s – Energy, Enthusiasm & Empathy.
  5. Play more games.
  6. Read more books than you did the previous 12 months.
  7. Make time to practice meditation, yoga and prayer. They provide us with daily fuel for our busy lives.
  8. Spend time with people over the age of 70 & under the age of 6
  9. Dream more while you are awake.
  10. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants & eat less food that is manufactured in plants.
  11. Drink plenty of water.
  12. Try to make at least three people smile each day. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
  13. Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip.
  14. Forget issues of the past. Don’t remind your partner of their mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.
  15. Don’t have negative thoughts on thoughts of things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.
  16. Realise that life is like a school and you are here to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like an algebra class, but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.
  17. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a beggar.
  18. Smile and laugh more. πŸ™‚
  19. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don’t hate others.
  20. Don’t take yourself seriously. No one else does.
  21. You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree
  22. Make peace with your past so it won’t spoil the pesent.
  23. Don’t compare your life to others’. You have no idea what their journey is all about. Don’t compare your partner with others.
  24. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
  25. Forgive everyone for everything.
  26. What other people think of you is none of your business.
  27. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
  28. Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch.
  29. Get rid of anything that is not useful, beautiful or joyful.
  30. The best is yet to come.
  31. Envy is a waste of time, you already have all you need.
  32. No matter how you feel. Get up, dress up and show up.
  33. Do the right thing!
  34. Call your family often.
  35. Your inner most is always happy. So be happy.
  36. Each day give something good to others.
  37. Don’t over do. Keep your limits.

Hopefully you’ve read through the list and I wonder how many of these you are currently adopting in your own lives. Maybe take on board one of two more at a time and see how things change for you.

Personally, I have had this list for a good few years and I am still trying to get a number of them on board as they require a major direction change for my life and I am never sure if I want that sort of massive upheaval and am happy to continue in the same way, with some slight adjustments, for the rest of my life.

Finally there is a No 38 – Share this with someone you care about.

To your success
