Happy 2010!

I received this via email recently. Thought I’d share it here for the New Year:



  • 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 2009.
  • 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.


  • 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.


  • 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.


  • 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.
