the simple things for 2009

My aunt always sends me the most inspiring email reminders. Sometimes the simplest ones are the ones u tend to forget. Here’s one today. :)

Health:
1.    Drink plenty of water
2.    Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner
  like a beggar
3.    Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants, and eat   less    
food that is manufactured in plants
4.    Live with the 3 E’s — Energy,  Enthusiasm, and Empathy
5.    Make time  
for prayer
6.    Play more games
7.    Read more books than you did in 2008
8.    Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day
9.    Sleep for 7 hours
10.  Take a 10-30 minutes walk every day —- and while you walk,    smile 

Personality:

11.  Don’t compare your life to others’. You have no idea what    their journey is all about.
12.  Don’t have negative thoughts or 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.  

Community:

25.  Call your family often
26.  Each day give something good to others
27.  Forgive everyone for everything
28.  Spend time with 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   family and friends will. Stay in touch.

Life:

32.  Do the right things
33.  Get rid of anything that isn’t useful, beautiful or joyful
34.  GOD heals everything
35.  However good or bad a situation is, it will change
36.  No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up
37.  The best is yet to come
38.  When you awake alive in the morning, thank GOD for it
39.  Your Inner most is always happy. So, be happy.

Last but not the least :

40.  Do forward this to everyone you care about.
