Stay healthy....some tips

Now here's some good tips to stay healthy all the time. No, booze is out of the question. What was it again?...No, junk food is not healthy food. I'm not talking about food intake. It's the dos' and don'ts' in life. Okay, let's stay focus on the subject at hand. There was a research done at some place, by some clever people, some time ago. In order to stay healthy, these are what you need to do.....(I've highlighted some of my personal favourites!!)
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 (I'm no angel, but hey it really does work. Test God for his blessings, and He will surely answer you)
6...Play more games/sports.
7...Read more books than you did in 2008.
8...Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day.
9...Sleep for at least 7 hours.
10...Take a 10-30 minutes walk every day. And while you walk, smile (but don't tersengih only lar. People will say you're crazy)
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 (ladies?? *hints*)
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 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 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. Smile!

I skip breakfast, eat lunch like princess, and take dinner like beggar wan wor.

Calvin Soo KJ said...

josephine, research has shown that breakfast is the most important meal of the day as opposed to lunch and dinner. neways, if you are fit and healthy enuff, that just stick to your usual diet. :)
