Seven rules to keep you healthy and happy

Hello again and hoping you are having a good weekend.

I have a few rules that I try and stick to that hopefully are keeping me healthy and happy and they are:

Laughter is one of the best things for your mental and physical state.
Recognize that stress is a killer and dont let it beat you.
Dont worry.
Get plenty of exercise or at least some exercise regularly.
Eat healthy foods.
Get proper sleep each day.
Learn to relax and unwind.

When Im troubled by something in particular I try and think of what could be the worst thing that can happen to me at that time and usually its not that bad, or is bearable, and I know that whatever it is it will probably pass. Let worry and stress wash over you.

Never worry about tomorrow until tomorrow comes.
Sleep is the best meditation....Dalai Lama
One should eat to live, not live to eat....Moliere
Laugh, and the world laughs with you;
Weep, and you weep alone; ........Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Until next time....

Sydney made the top 10 best cities to live in

News out today is that Sydney has again made the top 10 world's best cities to live in, coming in at 10th place. Mercer Worldwide Quality of Living Survey 2008 ranked Sydney down one spot from last year.

Cities are rated across 39 areas considering such 'quality of life' factors as political and economic stability, human rights and personal freedoms, pollution, crime rates, health standards and the cost of consumer staples.

Zurich came in again as first and the highest entry for the United States was Honolulu at 28th place.

Congratulations to the city I grew up in - Sydney, Australia. On a sunny day, looking out over the harbour there is no better place to be.
