Professor of Psychology, Ed Diener, says that "The aim of life is to die young as late as possible."

Here are a few tips on how to do just that:

  1. If you take a £20 note, crumple it up, throw it on the floor, and tread on it a few times, it may be a little dirty and the worst for wear, but it hasn’t lost any of its value. The same is true of you. Remember, what happens to you doesn’t change your value.
  2. Whatever life you have in you, express it. If you have the urge to bake cakes, do stand up comedy, or run a marathon ….. overcome the inertia and do it. The act of expression increases present moment awareness, flow, and therefore happiness.
  3. Take a risk, change your routine and do something which makes your soul soar. Sleep replenishes a tired mind and body, but sleep doesn’t help if its your soul that’s tired.
  4. Make sure that everyday you love someone, believe in something and hope for something. When you’re crystal clear on your why the how tends to show up.
  5. Get outside and get lost in nature because this is our true nature. In evolutionary terms, it wasn’t that long ago that we lived in caves. Humans have become too domesticated and were born to be wild. There maybe no wifi in the forest, but you will find a better connection.

 

Humour

Anarchy in the SMS

An old man was driving his car down a one-way street when a policeman stopped him and said, "Didn’t you see the arrows?"

"Arrows?" replied the old man, "I didn’t even see the Indians."

Two friends were in the wine section at their local supermarket and one said to the other, "How much do you normally spend on a bottle of wine?"

"About an hour," the friend replied.

My boss asked me, "Do you believe in life after death?"

"Yes," I replied.

"I thought you would," he said. "Yesterday after you left to go to your grandmother’s funeral, she phoned the office asking for you."

 

Live big & love deep.
