1. Drink plenty of water.
2. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a beggar.
3. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.
4. Live with the 3 E's - Energy, Enthusiasm, and Empathy...
5. Make time to practice meditation, yoga, and prayer.
6. Play more games.
7. Read more books than you did in 2013
8. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day.
9. Sleep for 7 hours.
10. Take a 10-30 minutes' walk every day. And while you walk, smile.

Excellent blog. Am printing this out now.

I like! Will print out too. Thanks, Hilda!

I love your blog Hilda. I'm going to print it and keep it by me. Thank you and Happy Easter.

Short-sharp-successful.... I wonder if anyone would have an alternative list? Tough one given that I agree with all of Hilda's. I guess "Friendship" works with "Empathy" - the central need to connect with others.

These should be carved in stone, Hilda.
Peace and Love, Rich x

I like the 'play more games' one, I dont do that very often, and I should. I quite like lego though! x

Lovely and very wise; thank-you Hilda. I especially like the idea of reading more books - too often I don't think I have "earnt" the right to read for pleasure. Frankie

I have to admit #3 gave me cause to pause -- "manufactured in plants." Perhaps I'd change that to manufactured and leave it at that. In MY mind at least. I've already got #6 and #7 down -- I got a Kindle and actually have tried three games on it. That's more than I've played in the past two decades. My husband and I have talked about it, and we have decided that we will play a game TOGETHER at least once a month. And we have planned a huge excursion today with the only grandchild who lives in this area. As for reading, that's all I ever do, my husband complains. I have chronic pain -- as so many of us do -- and when I'm on a day that's 30/10 -- it's sometimes all I can do. Great list. Really great list!

Perhaps less - 'contained-in-food ' " E's " ( no. 4: Energy, Enthusiam, Empathy )

GREAT List Hilda - thank you. Short, succinct and do-able:-)

That list is a nice reminder how a few simple practices go a long way to maintaining health. What I loved was how I was like, "I do that, I do that, I do that..." then I thought: how many of these do I practice daily or even "regularly"?

Ah, that would be 2 out of 10. :-)

Great blog ;) thanks for putting it together tidy little reminders !

Lego is excellent therapy ;) my 2 boys have shown me the way in how and where to place my high level organising, truly therapeutic ;)

Thanks Hilda. There was an interview with an over-100 year old woman on telly - her advice was 'a little of what you fancy does you good - but don't be a pig about it!' I aim to follow this ... most of the time!
