The Maintenance Rules of Life

The maintenance rules of life:

1. Take care of your spiritual, mental and physical health
2. Consider the impact on your health each decision and action you take will have

Spiritual health maintenance rules:
1. Do something every day to support and increase your feeling of happiness and wellbeing
2. Meditate for a set period each day on the good things in your life and feel thankful for them
3. Never allow negative thought to live in your mind – always look for the positive outcome in all situations
4. Let go of anger, envy (jealousy)* – do not carry it over to the next day (start every day afresh)
* The most destructive emotions – those will destroy you, NOT the person that you direct them at!

Mental health maintenance rules:
1. Exercise your brain every day
2. Accept that you are human and fallible – don’t beat yourself up over making mistakes
3. Accept yourself for what you are – you are unique and there is only one of you in the whole world
4. Do not be sensitive to criticism – evaluate it and learn from it if it constructive – ignore it if it is destructive, remembering that people can only hurt your feelings if you allow them to do so!

Physical health rules:
1. Take care of your body – it is the only one you will ever have and is irreplaceable
2. Feed it properly and do not use it as a dustbin for drugs and unsuitable substances
3. Exercise and do not allow yourself to become over weight
4. Do not allow yourself to become under weight

Social health rules:

1. If you want to be respected you must first respect others
2. You are a mirror – what you reflect to the world will be reflected back to you
3. Take a stand – be assertive in a considerate way – being aggressive means you are frightened
4. Value people who are there to help you and things that are there to help you
5. Talk to your life coach
