29 Things To Do For Better Lives

I read this on one of the blogs I follow and thought it was great. Here are 29 things you can do to have a better life.

  • Take a 10-30 minute walk every day and, while you walk, smile. It’s the ultimate anti-depressant.
  • Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes a day.
  • Tape your late shows and get more sleep.
  • When you wake up in the morning, complete the following statement, ‘My purpose is to _________ today.’
  • Live with the 3 E’s – energy, enthusiasm and empathy.
  • Play more games and read more books than you did last year.
  • Make time to pray. Prayer provides us with daily fuel for our busy lives.
  • Spend time with people over the age of 70 and under the age of 6. Appreciate their genuine nature, strength and innocence.
  • Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.
  • Try to make at least 3 people smile each day.
  • Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a college kid.
  • Smile and laugh more.
  • Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
  • Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
  • You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
  • Make peace with your past so it won’t spoil the present.
  • Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
  • No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
  • Frame every so-called disaster with these words: ‘In 5 years, will this matter?’
  • God can heal any hurt.
  • However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
  • Your job won’t take care of you when you’re sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch.
  • Envy is a waste of time.
  • No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
  • Do the right thing!
  • Call your family often.
  • Remember that you are too blessed to be stressed.
  • Enjoy the ride. Remember, this is not Disney World and you certainly don’t want a fast pass. You only have one ride through life so make the most of it and enjoy the ride.
  • Glorify God with your life.
