Don’t envy others. What is the point? Is there a good reason to be envious of someone else or their possessions? The less time you spend thinking about somebody else’s looks, achievements, and financial success, the happier you will be. Being envious only creates negative emotions and internal conflict.
He who has health has hope; and he who has hope has everything.
Give every task, activity, and job your best. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully. For example, if you are asked to do the dishes, put a smile on your face, and do them. Put in a little extra effort and wipe down the counters. It won’t take more than a few minutes. So, give life all you have (and more).

Smile. This is a big one. It is pretty easy to do, and it instantly brightens your mood. Smile at your family, friends, and neighbors. Smile at complete strangers. Chances are, they’ll smile back. I’ve found that smiling as often as you can will reduce your stress, boosts your self-confidence, and makes you look younger. It will also cheer up the people you are smiling at. Overall, a “smiler” is a happy, confident, low-stress, and attractive person. Life is just a little bit easier when you confront it with a smile.
To avoid sickness eat less; to prolong life worry less.
