Ten Simple Rules

I read this today, and loved it for its simple, but profound message.  I thought it was perfect for this week of Thanksgiving.  

Five rules for happiness:
1. Free your heart from hatred.

2. Free your mind from worries. 

3. Live simply.

4. Give more.

5. Expect less.

And because Thanksgiving often revolves so largely around food (and because happy and healthy need to go hand in hand), here are five more to get you from turkey to pie.

6.  Find a way to help 

7.  Eat only what you love 

8.  Eat slowly and with gratitude and mindfulness

9.  Drink lots of pure water

10.  Focus more on the people you're with, and less on the food

I wish you all a happy and healthy Thanksgiving.
