This Will Make You Feel At Least 1% Better

16 replies
One of my best frineds sent me this email today and it made me feel a lot better, and even laugh, so I've decided to share it here to make some fellow warrior feel better.

Here it is...

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.

3. Buy a VCR and record your late night shows and get more sleep

4. When you wake up in the morning complete the following statement, 'My purpose is to ___________ today.'

5. Live with the 3 E's -- Energy, Enthusiasm, and Empathy.

6. Play more games and read more books than you did last year.

7. Make time to practice meditation, and prayer. They provide us with daily fuel for our busy lives.

8. Spend time with people over the age of 70 and under the age of 6.

9. Dream more while you are awake.

10. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.

11. Drink green tea and plenty of water. Eat blueberries, wild Alaskan salmon, broccoli, almonds & walnuts.

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

13. Clear clutter from your house, your car, your desk and let new and flowing energy into your life.

14. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip, OR issues of the past, negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.

15. 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.

16. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a college kid with a maxed out charge card.

17. Smile and laugh more. It will keep the NEGATIVE BLUES away.

18. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

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

20. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

21. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

22. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present.

23. 'Don't compare your life to others'. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

24. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.

25. Frame every so-called disaster with these words: 'In five years, will this matter?'

26. Forgive everyone for everything.

27. What other people think of you is none of your business.

28. REMEMBER GOD heals everything.

29. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

30. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch.

31. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.

32. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

33. The best is yet to come.

34. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

35. Do the right thing!

36. Call your family often. (Go online if you're miles away or SMS them to death!)

37. Each night before you go to bed complete the following statements: I am thankful for __________. Today I accomplished __________.

38. Remember that you are too blessed to be stressed.

39. 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.

I hope it made you a small smile, even a tiny one...

If this not make you feel 1% better, I think something must be wrong with you

    I'm so happy to see that it made you feel better

    I got it from a friend by email and I believe he picked it online but I think you all can print it if you want.

  • Yeah this is the kind of thing you want to print out and stick on your wall or on the fridge.

    They should make one of those posters out of it and you could put it on your toilet door so you read it every time you go

    This one should have been at #1. If everyone followed this the world would be a much better place to live in.

    Great post Mike, thanks for that.

    I see a lot of people post these "feel good", "you can do it" posts. But I've never read one that instantly changed my way of thinking. I am printing this out and posting it by my desk. Thanks for sharing. I feel way better than 1%
