I found an old file from years ago and it held some of my earliest blogs. Some I’ve never submitted, thank goodness. This one didn’t say if I had or if I hadn’t submitted it, so my apologies if you’ve read it before. The list was very good for me to read. I sound so much younger and much more fun than I feel now! (I’d forgotten all about the benefits of headstands and I think I'll start again for just 5 or 10 seconds and build up slowly, any upside-down position will do.) Thought I’d share...
1 Take the time you need. Apply liberally to all areas of your life.
2 Have a plan for your day. Every day before you rise. Any plan. Your plan.
3 Have a basic, and rough meal guide for the week.
4 Look at your photographs. We always photograph the good bits.
5 Find one easily achievable thing that makes your day good. Now do it every day.
(The above can be anything at all. I do a headstand for up to 5 minutes, every day. The blood flow for your brain is remarkable and I might write about this. Opening a window, sticking your head outside and breathing in and out for a bit is also very achievable and can change your perspective.)
6 Sleep in the day if you need it, but not after 2pm.
7 If you can’t eat healthily, limit the trash to before 5pm.
8 Ask yourself “what does this do for me?”. This is not as harsh as it sounds. We often give more than we should.
9 An oldie and a goodie - if you can’t be good, be careful.
10 Forgive. Start with yourself.
