The Things You Should Do Every Day

These are the things I deeply, passionately believe you should be doing every day.

Smile its good for your mood, its good for the people around you, and therefore makes the world a better place. And if you have to show your age in your face, let it show more happiness than grief, you will thank yourself later.

Laugh it is the best medicine, after all.

Sing it increases your happiness (love those endorphins) and distracts you from stress and pain. I sang my way through painful injections under my nail bed and in my heel.

Sigh do it, a contented sigh is music from the soul.

Stretch push yourself to new experiences by stretching your body and your mind.

Play it is good for your inner child.

Be Grateful it is the most rewarding and enriching experience you can have.

And the good news is.... all these things are completely free!

Starry my friend thank you for the reminder.
These are the simple things in life, so easily forgotten and yet making a huge difference.
As usual, love your ideas and the opportunity to learn more about the things that are important to you.
We are experiencing the 'big' wet today.

Hi Starry....
Seems we do forget the simple things in life....
I am getting better at a few of the above mentioned....

Hi Chez,

yes I have just viewed your wet photos, looks like you have some channels forming. Don't get washed away, stay nice and warm and dry inside, a good chance to snuggle and rest I hope.

Hi Mandy,

I do believe you are observing more of life's little niceties as I have seen it through your blog, taking pleasure in your home grown vegies, your flowers, sharing grateful thoughts etc. These things help us to persevere in hard times, I like the lyrics from George "Breathe in Now", 'I see love and beauty all around'.
xxx best wishes for a good week, Starry
