Ten Things You Can Do To Make Your Life Better Today

Here are ten things that you can do, today or any day for that matter, and your life will be better. I guarantee it or your money back.

1. Turn off your cell phone for two hours, and don't return the voice messages until tomorrow.

2. Read ten poems.

3. Go to a park or a church or a museum, anywhere that you will find a high concentration of beauty. While you're there, sit and watch and listen, but be completely silent for one hour. Actively listen to every sound that you hear and ponder its source.

4. Buy a pair of roller skates.

5. Enjoy a glass of really fine wine. Just one glass. Savor it for a long time.

6. Eat gelato.

7. Listen to Max van Egmond sing songs by Gabriel Faure.

8. Find a garden, and examine the flowers at close range. Note their detail, their fragrance and their unique colors.

9. Call a friend that you haven't heard from in a long time. Reconnect.

10. Calculate the amount of money that you spent this week on Starbucks, beer, junk food and if you smoke, cigarettes. Give that same amount of money to your favorite charity.

That's it. Try a couple of these things. Your world will be better tomorrow! I promise.
