Emotional Fitness Tips
Tip one: More is not always better.
Tip two: Avoid shops, malls, internet shopping sites. Always ask before buying – is this a want or a need?
Tip three: Make two lists. First list – necessities. Second list: wants. Do not buy anything on the want list that you have until it has been on the list for 30 days.
Tip four: Limit credit card buying to mortgages and in some cases a car.
Tip five: Have a budget. Budget a reasonable amount for wants.
Tip six : Mission matters most: All the ancients and the more modern researches say a mission or over all purpose in life is vital to living your life your way. They also note that the mission to the good life remains basing your life on the Golden Rule. To learn more about this, get my eBook How To Know Your Mission To Reach Your Goals.

Thank you for all you do
Remember to share all you find of value on the internet. All who post crave recognition. A like says “Thank You.” Comments say you have read and thought about the post. Sharing is a gift to three people: the blogger, the people you share with, and you for your kindness blesses you.

Even the most learned researchers and therapists quarrel about much. Take their advice and mine carefully. Don’t just listen to your heart, but also think; don’t just think, listen to your heart. Heart and head working together increase the odds you will find useful advice amid all the promises and hopes pushed at you be others. As others have noted, take what seems useful, leave the rest.
