People will always look upon you favorably if you react to negative comments in a positive and respectful way. This is especially important when the dialog is online such as blogs and forums as it will remain online forever when the context of the discussion is long forgotten.

Don’t watch too much TV

There is a wealth of information within books and articles. Read about successful people that inspire you. You will be amazed at the life-changing gems of information you will find.

TV dulls the brain and should only be viewed in small doses. Who got what they wanted out of life watching TV?

Smile often

Have you ever started smiling after seeing someone else smile?

Smiling stimulates the thymus gland located below your throat, which then produces pleasure-increasing opiates. So when you smile, you’ll actually begin to feel happier inside.

Be charitable

Give to others freely and without expectation of return. This can be as simple as helping an elderly person across the street to donating your time to a charitable cause.

Not only will you feel good about yourself but you are also improving the life of others.

The universe rewards those people who help others. That law is ‘You get back what you give’.

Exercise at least 3 times a week

This can be a brisk walk right up to a full gym workout.
