MY 24 Steps to a BETTER LIFE in 2009...

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, and almonds.

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

7. Don't waste my precious energy on gossip, issues of the past, negative thoughts or things I cannot control. Instead I want to invest my energy in the positive present moment.

8. Eat breakfast like a King, lunch like a princess, and dinner like a college kid with a maxed out credit card.

9. Life isn't fair, but its still good.

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

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

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

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

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

15. No one determines my happiness BUT ME.

16. Frame every so call disaster with thses words: "In five years, will this matter?"

17. Forgive

18. What other people think of me is NONE of my business.

19. GOD heals all.

20. However good or bad the situation is, it will change.

21. My job won't take care of me when I am sick, your friends will. Stay in touch.

22. Envy is a waste of time. I have all that I need.

23. Each night before you go to bed complete the following statements: I am thankful for__________. Today I accomplished____________.

24. I am too blessed to be stressed.
