1. Throw out non-essential numbers.
This includes age, weight, and height.

Let the doctors worry about them. That is why they get paid.

2. Keep only cheerful friends.

The grouches pull you down.
(Keep this in mind if you are one of those grouches!)

3. Keep learning:
Learn more about th e computer, crafts, gardening, whatever.
Never let the brain get idle. ?'An idle mind is the devil's workshop.'
And the devil's name is Alzheimer's!

4. Enjoy the simple things

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.
And if you have a friend who makes you laugh, spend lots and lots of time with her/him !

6. The tears happen:
Endure, grieve, and move on.
The only person who is with us our entire life, is our self.
LIVE while you are alive.

7. Surround yourself with what you love:

Whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever.
Your home is your refuge.

8. Cherish your health:
If it is good, preserve it.

If it is unstable, improve it.
If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9. Don't take guilt trips.

Take a trip to the mall, even to a foreign country, but NOT to where the guilt is.

10. Tell the people you love, that you love them - at every opportunity.

Really great advice especially the part about exercising your mind. The Like I always say, "The brain is a muscle, use it, or lose it." I wish more people thought like you did. it would make the world a much nicer place. You are pretty smart. :-)
