04 Dec Do these 12 things now or you’ll regret it the rest of your life!
Regrets…we'll all have them.
But we'll all, also, have plenty of chances in our lives to ensure we do as much as possible NOT to have too many regrets or at least, too many big ones.
That's one way of thinking about happiness; living your life to the full with as few regrets as possible.
Which is why I thought I'd share with you this article by Tina Williamson from LifeHack…
When you’re nearing the summit of this turbulent climb through life, will you reach the top with wild enthusiasm or will you be hobbling with the aching knees of regret? You’ve climbed through storms, passed over green patches and had help from friends, and now it’s almost over. Your whole life has been leading you to this moment and one thing is certain: this final ascent we all have to do alone.
What thoughts will flash through your mind? You will be faced with tough questions such as: Did I do enough, love enough, was I happy?
You might leave these questions simmering on the back burner, thinking tomorrow will be a good day to contemplate the answers, but remember—tomorrow might not come!

There is an old saying: “If you don’t have your health you have nothing,” and this is very true. Your body is housing your soul. Exercise, eat clean and get the proper rest. Take care of your body so that you have the opportunity to lead a long and full life. See 15 tips on restarting an exercise practice.

3. Stop taking life so seriously
Why are you taking life so seriously anyway? Really? Find humor in something everyday, and laugh, laugh a lot!
4. Always say what you need to say
If you love someone, tell them. If someone hurt you, tell them. If you have trouble expressing your feelings, then write a letter. Make sure those around you know each and every day how you feel.
5. Open up your mind to possibilities
If you look in your garage and see a coiled, dark shadow that resembles a snake, your reaction might be to jump with fear, but later when you look closer and realize it’s just a green hose, you might feel silly for believing the tricks of your mind. Stop being controlled by your deluded projections…
