4 Building a habit of a walk or gentle bicycle ride daily, five days a week, or at least three days a week until you can work your way into it. Surely no matter what part of the country you live in you can work this in many cases. I know I used to live where snow and freezing temperatures kept you inside for a week. If you don’t live where you live, CALL ME I will help you get moved to where you want to be. No matter which state you currently live in, I CAN DO THIS!
5 Do not turn that television on between 4:30 P.M. and 7:00 P.M. the entire week. As you know this would give, you’re the opportunity to watch the news… we do not want that! Instead, take a walk, play a game, read, call a friend, clean the garage. Keep away from the news! It is not news. It is old. There are the teases: TONIGHT, the ABCs are attaching the RST’s -horrific storms to hit the east coast – many killed in Ruficjnrboaglogan – mother finds three old hanging from a hook. You get the idea, and then I have never counted but I am sure there is more time in commercials than there is in blabbering about negative things. Then at the very end ninety-one seconds on how a ninety-seven-year-old man rode his bicycle across the US in nine days, twenty-one hours, forty-three minutes, and fifty-one seconds while being blind, deft, and one leg amputated from the war.
6 Write! Write a letter. As for myself, typing is my favorite. Because my mind thinks quickly, and I may be able to type as fast as my mind thinks but cannot write as fast. Write a book! I have written two. Write a friend, friends from the past: school, military, former neighborhoods you lived in, former church members, former club members.
7 Call and talk with someone. We never had a telephone until I was a senior in high school. When my father had one installed, he would be talking with someone who he had taught in school twenty or forty years in the past, and at 7:45 a.m. as I left for school he began, and when I came home for lunch he was still talking to the same person. LIFE IS SHORT… GET YOUR MONEY’S WORTH OUT OF IT.
I hope your day is as great as mine
