Morning Story and Dilbert

1. Your shoes are the first thing people subconsciously notice
about you. Wear nice shoes.

2. If you sit for more than 11 hours a day, there’s a 50% chance
you’ll die within the next 3 years.

3. There are at least six people in the world who look exactly
like you. There’s a 9% chance that you’ll meet one of them in your   lifetime.

4. Sleeping without a pillow reduces back pain and keeps your
spine stronger.

5. A person’s height is determined by their father,
and their weight is determined by their mother.

6. If a part of your body “falls asleep”, you can almost always
“wake it up”  by shaking your head.

7. There are three things the human brain cannot resist noticing:
food, attractive people, and danger.

8. Right-handed people tend to chew food on their right side.

9. Putting dry tea bags in gym bags or smelly shoes will absorb
the unpleasant odor.

10. According to Albert Einstein, if honey bees were to disappear
from earth, humans would be dead within four years.

11. There are so many kinds of apples, that if you ate a new one
every day, it would take over 20 years to try them all.

12. You can survive without eating for weeks, but
you will only live 11 days without sleeping.

13. People who laugh a lot are healthier than those who don’t.

14. Laziness and inactivity kills just as many people as smoking.

15. A human brain has a capacity to store five times as much
information as Wikipedia.

16. Our brain uses the same amount of power as a 10-watt light bulb!!

17. Our body gives enough heat in 30 minutes to boil 1.5 liters
of water!!

18. The Ovum egg is the largest cell and the sperm is the smallest
cell !!

19. Stomach acid (conc. HCL) is strong enough to dissolve
razor blades!!

20. Take a 10-30 minute walk every day and while you walk,
SMILE.  It is the ultimate antidepressant.

21. Sit in silence for at least ten minutes each day.

22. When you wake up in the morning, pray to ask God’s guidance
for your purpose today.

23. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food
that is manufactured in plants.

24. Drink green tea and plenty of water. Eat blueberries, broccoli,
and almonds.

25. Try to make at least three people smile each day.

26. Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip, energy vampires,
issues of the past, negative thoughts or things you cannot control.
Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.

27. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner
like a college kid with a maxed out charge card.

28. Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.

29. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
Forgive them for everything.

30. Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

31. You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

32. Make peace with your past so it won’t spoil the present.

33. Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their
journey is all about.

34. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.

35. Frame every so-called disaster with these words:
‘In five years, will this matter?’

36. Help the needy, Be generous! Be a ‘Giver’ not a ‘Taker’.

37. What other people think of you is none of your business.

38. Time heals everything.

39. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

40. Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick.
Your friends will. Stay in touch.

41. Envy is a waste of time.  You already have all you need.

42. Each night before you go to bed, pray to God and
be thankful for what you accomplished today.

43. Remember that you are too blessed to be stressed.

    Good advice, but I tried #6 and I could hear things clanking around. Should I be worried.

  2. There are a few I question (better to sleep without a pillow?), but, as always, interesting!

    Thank you for sharing these! I had never heard the one about what people think of me is none of my business. 🙂

  4. Hmm, I found #10 very interesting; #27 doesn’t work for me – it was kind of how my Mom fed me and I spent my childhood with a sour stomach; I kind of disagree with #40 – if you get really sick, it’s not your friends who will be paying your medical premiums.

  5. Ha! Cute cartoon. Clean hair indeed.

    That is a great list. This one is quite true, “Take a 10-30 minute walk every day and while you walk, SMILE. It is the ultimate antidepressant.” That is the solution to 90% of what ails us. 😉

  6. I stopped reading after number 10, because Einstein had nothing to do with bees. Einstein was not a biologist and knew nothing about those little animals and never said anything of that sort, which made me doubt about the other so-called facts. Nonetheless, I like your posts and keep on blogging in a free world – The False Prophet
