Time Management often is the strategy for Happiness

by Anonymous
(Spain)


1. Be thankful for your life and regard every day as a gift from above.Use a mantra to endorse this


2. Be thankful for everything you have got in the material sense... there are many with nothing

3. Live for the future that will surely arrive.Be prepared by not wasting what you have been given

4. Eat and drink sensibly

5. Exercise your body with a daily routine whenever possible. Use all the components of fitness..Strength, Suppleness, Stamina, Speed

6. Exercise your mind and develop new skills and learning

7. Enjoy family and friends by spending time with them whenever possible. Value them and be prepared to compromise when necessary. Facebook does not replace face to face contact. Use the internet when distance prohibits contact. Laugh with them and enjoy them

8. Be careful of the friends you keep. We are often judged by the company with whom we are seen.

9. Don't get locked into the computer screen. Come up for air on a regular basis. Discipline yourself to get out at least once per day.Don't watch too much TV

10. Telephone or contact people when you don't need something. Tell people you appreciate them.

11. Take a pride in your appearance and always remember a routine usually stops you being caught on the hop. Personally, I start the day with ablutions and bodily functions, teeth, shower and exercise routine.


12. Learn to multi-task and use this function correctly.

13. Keep a tidy environment. Don't let jobs build up

14. Cut yourself a bit of slack every now and then. Reward periods of austerity with preferred treats

15. Ask for help when you need it

16. Keep money in perspective

No value added
by: James

Well I wish they would stop bothering me with their poor excuse for a relationship . they add no value - I can get this type of contact with people on the other side of the world who really want to see me or complete strangers who have more to say than fits into a text message. They are just bothering me to ease their guilty consciences - I want genuine friends in my life, not hypocrites!!

It is like the folk who say "Do drop in" knowing you won't or the ones you meet on vaction, who say "Do come to see us", but who'd pretend to be out if you did, or always be fully booked if you phoned in advance.

Hey I saw a real, neat sitcom about that, some people they met on vacation called their bluff and so they hid when they realized who it was, but the guys had a camper van and parked it outside, so they were virtually under house arrest for a week - served them right!!

They wouldn't bother without internet
by: Anonymous

Yes, James but those people would probably not bother at all if it weren't for the internet and text messages. They would be too mean to pick up a phone and too mean with their time to come to meet you.

Internet Sucks
by: James

Yeah, I agree, the internet is great, but it sucks for making people think a five second message once or twice a month substitutes for real caring and sharing. Give me the old days anytime!

Let them know
by: Rose

I agree to an extent, but better to communicate your feelings before cutting them off - they might be so into themselves that they don't realize the hurt they are causing. That is why you should always make time for the people who do matter to you. When you eventually do have time for them, it might be too late. I know that from experience. Life is too short and none of us know how long we have got!!!!

Great Tips
by: Anonymous

Great tips. These are all great tips i know i should implement in my life - but i don't always, especially when the going gets tough.

Know what you mean about people who live nearby but want to keep in touch through text messages, facebook and other virtual means. It is like when people keep saying "we must get together" or "hope to see you soon" but are always "too busy" when you actually try to get together with them or see them. Makes you feel unwanted!!! They are sending out a clear message of what they really feel about you.

People shouldn't keep in touch out of a sense of obligation - its better to cut ties with such people as they just make you unhappy in the long run.

Internet is a great tool when used with discernment. Facebook skype etc is great for long distance relationships but doesn't replace face to face with people who are nearby.
