and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.

10.Take a 10-30 minutes walk daily. And while you walk,smile.

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

12. Don't have negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.

.16. Dream more while you are awake
