here are my next lot of tasks to tackle from my improving life challenge ...
7. For the next 100 days, have a good laugh at least once a day: get one of those calendars that has a different joke for every day of the year, or stop by a web site that features your favorite cartoons.
if i find anything hilarious i'll be sure to share.
10. Stop complaining for the next 100 days. A couple of years back, Will Bowen gave a purple rubber bracelet to each person in his congregation to remind them to stop complaining. “Negative talk produces negative thoughts; negative thoughts produce negative results”, says Bowen. For the next 100 days, whenever you catch yourself complaining about anything, stop yourself.
this is one i'm really keen to try out...
i have a habit of complaining about, well, pretty much everything, even if it doesn't actually bother me...
so now i'm going to actively try and stop and hopefully after the 100 days i won't even have to remind myself to stop being so negative!
37. Create a list of 10 healthy, easy to fix breakfast meals.
* mushroom omelette
* overnight oats
* berries with yoghurt
* peanut butter toast
* fresh fruit
* promite toast
56. For the next 100 days, practice active listening. When someone is talking to you, remain focused on what they’re saying, instead of rehearsing in your head what you’re going to say next. Paraphrase what you think you heard them say to make sure that you haven’t misinterpreted them, and encourage them to elaborate on any points you’re still not clear about.
