Be Kind and Polite: It’s basic: Being nice to those around you shows you value them as people. Practice being polite. Think about other people and what you can do for them. They will notice and you will impress. Treating others well has been shown to make you feel better about yourself, too.
Being on time shows people you’re in control and that you respect them and their time. Use datebooks and set pings to remind you of meetings and tasks. Prepare for big events and meetings the night before. Try to figure out how much time a task will take. Plan for bumps that might throw you off, like rush-hour traffic. Give yourself more time than you think you’ll need.
Gain From Giving
People who often volunteer tend to be happier, with better self-esteem and a sense of purpose. People who give of themselves are also more likely to live longer and enjoy stronger relationships. It’s a win-win for everyone.
Take Time Off
Take a break from time to time. It’s not wasted time. It renews your energy, curbs stress and worry, and lets you enjoy and explore. You’ll come back better.
LOL: Laugh Out Loud
Laughing helps your body, most of all your heart. Research shows that laughter is good for blood vessels. This may help keep heart disease at bay. Enjoy a funny film or see a comedy show with friends. Humor and health go hand in hand.
Practice Manly Limits
Knowing when enough is enough shows you’re in control. Overdo it and you will feel the effects. If you drink alcohol, limit it to no more than two drinks a day — and of course, never drive after drinking. If you find it hard to set limits with alcohol, talk with your doctor or a counselor.
Learn to Love the Long Run: Success is rarely a sprint. It’s more like a marathon. If you keep striving for what you want while prizing what you’ve got, you’re doing well. Take pride in that 🙂 🙂
