Handbook 2011

Got this from a relative in her Christmas Card.  Post this on your refrigerator

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/plants and less food that is manufactured in plants.
4.   Live with the three Es: Energy, Enthusiasm, and Empathy
5.   Make time to pray
6.   Play more games
7.   Read more books than you did in 2010
8.   Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day
9.   Sleep  for a minimum of 7 hours
10.  Take a 30-minute walk daily. And while you walk, smile.

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

25.  Call you family often

27.  Forgive everyone for everything.
28.  Spend time with people over the age of 70 and 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.

32.  Do the right thing!
33.  Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.
34.  God heals everything.
35.  However good or bad a situation, 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 innermost is always happy. So, be happy.
