    favorites from these options and experience real benefits.

    1. Keep a journal. With smartphones, electronic tablets, and computers, keeping a daily diary is quick and convenient. If you prefer the traditional route, get one of those beautifully-covered blank books and journal to your hearts desire.

    Jot down how you feel, what you think, what disturbs you, or what makes you happy. Youll develop self-awareness.

    2. Move your body. Take time for exercise. Go for a brisk 30-minute walk, complete a yoga DVD, or jog for 20 minutes. When you exercise on a regular basis, your muscle tone will improve and so will your mood.

    3. Call your parents. Dont you feel better when you check in and see how your mom and dad are doing? Your life is emotionally enriched when you keep regular contact with your parents.

    4. Play with your kids. Re-discover the miracle of children. Theres no better way to bring renewal, fun, and passion into your life than taking time out simply to play with your children. And frolicking with the little ones will strengthen your relationships as well.



  • 5. If youre a parent, read a book on child-rearing. If youre not a parent, read a book about how to perform well in your career. Reading relevant non-fiction is motivating and strengthens your chances for success.

    6. Take good care of your teeth. Your teeth are intimately connected with your overall health. Get dental checks at least twice yearly or as your dentist requires. Endeavor to improve your health through regular dental care.

    If youve been away from the dentist for years, call today.

    7. Practice effective money management. If you need guidance, contact your local budget counselor or consumer credit counseling service. Developing wise money habits will bring you a few steps closer to the good life you deserve.

    8. Read a fiction book. Who doesnt love a good story? Expand your mind, enjoy new experiences, and improve vocabulary with the written word.
