We all know what we need to do to live a better life, even in the most difficult of situations. Don't we? It's just difficult sometimes because we'd rather not take the time to change our mindset or world view. That would take a little work and careful consideration. This list is just a few things I work on continuously. Some come fairly easy (worry less), while others seem to be a constant struggle (eat less). I am sure you have your own list and may have some you could add to mine. In fact, feel free to add to mine. I'm always open to suggestions. These are simple to write and come up with, but very challenging to achieve at times.

We should all strive to improve our day to day life, even if there are days we'd rather not.
