8. Sit in silence to meditate and reflect on God's blessings to you
9. Sleep for at least 7 hours a night

Personality:
11. Spend your time and energy focused on your personal best instead of comparing yourself to others
12. Focus on positive thoughts about things you can control; instead of wasting time on what you can't
13. Know your limits so you don't over-do, over-extend or over-spend
14. Learn to not take your mistakes so seriously, no one else does
15. Invest time with meaningful talk, life is too short to spend time gossiping
16. Dream big dreams while you are awake to enjoy it instead of only dreaming while asleep
17. Being jealous of others is a waste of time; focus on the blessings you have to avoid wanting more
18. Deal with the past and be done with it. Remember that yesterday ended last night
19. When you hate others it hurts you more than it hurts them. Set boundaries and be done with it
