Here are ten spiritual tips for you. I quote this from Abraham L. Feinberg. I love all the points on the list...

Ten Spiritual Tonics
  1. Stop worrying. Worry kills life.
  2. Begin each day with a prayer. It will arm your soul.
  3. Control appetite. Over-indulgence clogs body and mind.
  4. Accept your limitations . . . All of us can't be great.
  5. Don't envy. It wastes time and energy.
  6. Have faith in people. Cynicism sours the disposition.
  7. Find a hobby. It will relax your nerves.
  8. Read a book a week to stimulate imagination and broaden your views.
  9. Spend some time alone for the peace of solitude and silence.
  10. Try to want what you have, instead of spending your strength trying to get what you want.

This is great Boya. I need to remind myself about all these everyday. Like I need to just read them everyday so I can imprint it in my brain.

Hi Boya! I particularly like "try to want what you have"...I learned to do that after the burnout because I didn't have as much as I used to, but lo and behold, I'm much happier and I love my "stuff", lol! Just wanted to say hello! My life has been slightly hectic these days, but I think things are calming down now! Hope you have a nice weekend!

Hi Rain..I believe that we all can feel happier to love our "stuff" so there's no more feeling of being able to own what we don't have..Hope you have a nice weekend too=)
