Principles for a Healthy Life
I found this link a few days ago, I thought it had some very good points on how to live a healthy, productive life. It's time for us, especially me, to strengthen our will~power and self~control. It is not easy, it takes practice. Something as trivial as stopping the thoughts that run through our mind daily can be difficult, and don't get me started on negative 'thought~loops'...lol...Personally, I struggle with procrastination, not wanting to take action immediately. I tend to self~justify 'why' I can't do *it* right now (I'm the worst with meditation). So I'm always looking for a small 'checklist' I can ask myself to see if I'm on the right track and this one fit the bill. Hope this helps someone as much as it did me.

Mr. Peel has also suggested following practical tips, which are very effective in improvement of talents for a progressive life:

(i) One should throw away the negative thoughts of pessimism and lack of confidence in the success of the work at hand.

(ii) One should cultivate the habit of self-analysis to know his qualities and potentials and also practice autosuggestion to strengthen the positive aspects.

(iii) Thinking should not remain confined to selfish affairs; one should also plan for other’s welfare and attempt materialization of the same.

(iv) God-gifted willpower and inner strength should be used creatively and cautiously to avoid the wastage and misuse of the mental and physical potentials and talents.

(v) Daily routine should be well planned - keeping in mind that every step in life should lead towards higher goals.

(vi) The energy and activities of mind should be oriented in a positive direction by creative thinking and adept learning.

(vii) One should practise linking the self with divinity every day and night - by way of prayers, meditation etc, as an integral part of life.

This cultivates inner strength and virtues to enable one to overcome all difficulties and adversities and even do what would appear impossible to many others in general.
Sincere adoption of above mentioned habits and suggestions protects waning and decay of inherited talents and transmutes one’s mental potentials to reach high realms of progressive life.

 There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.

There is another theory mentioned, which states that this has already happened.

Our emotions are "verbally mediated". Which means that what we say to ourselves about people, situations, and events is what really determines how we "feel" about those people, situations, and events.

Self talk is not bs, it has a tremendous influence on outcomes, all other things being equal...
There is nothing quite as compelling as a bad idea whose time has come...

sounds right.
some people do try to talk themselves out of their feelings, because acknowledging them can be hard.

but you are right!

Re: Principles for a Healthy Life
I can relate to the procrastination, lol. My thought processes go something like this:

I will do that this morning!

It can probably wait until afternoon.

I've waited this long, might as well do it this evening.

Would it really be so bad if I do it tomorrow? No, it would be just as good or better!


Rinse and repeat.

Norman Vincent Peale

New ager just as surly as Oprah is.

"Peale first became suspect when he consistently began endorsing New Age/Occultic writers. The following are several examples. In Dr. Bernie Siegel's book, Love, Medicine, and Miracles, Peale writes, "In these pages is found a precious secret, that of health and well being" (inside cover). In the book Siegel describes how he got his message and insights through guided meditation and an inner spirit guide"

Peale is a 33 degree mason.

Re: Principles for a Healthy Life
Procrastination is often the refuge of the perfectionist. Lower your ideals. While it may seem contrary to Peals's advice, try it. If you want to be an artist and your expectation of producing the perfect painting (that you imagine) but never pick up the brush and practice, your painting would never appear. Break down your desired outcome into smaller more attainable and reasonable goals.

Thinking that you are lazy is bad self-talk. So start the year with a positive affirmation. I am full of energy and absolutely rock at accomplishing my tasks.

Yes . . . 'one should'

Great great post.

I know all of this, but need to be more 'mindful'.

I'm printing for the refrigerator.

Thanks Tampa!
