4) Recipe for the New Year

Take a 10-30 minute walk every day. And while you walk, smile. It is the ultimate anti-depressant.

Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day. Talk to God about what is going on in your life. Buy a lock if you have to.

When you wake up in the morning complete the following statement, 'My
purpose is to__________ today. I am thankful for______________'

Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.

Drink green tea and plenty of water. Eat blueberries, wild Alaskan salmon, broccoli , almonds & walnuts.

Try to make at least three people smile each day.

Don't waste your precious energy on gossip, energy vampires, issues of the past, negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.

Eat breakfast like a queen, lunch like a princess, and dinner like a college kid with a maxed out charge card.

Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

Don't take yourself so one else does.

You are not so important that you have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present.

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

No one is in charge of your happiness except you.

Frame every so-called disaster with these words: 'In five years, will this matter?'

Forgive everyone for everything.

What other people think of you is none of your business.

GOD heals everything in his own way - but it helps if you ask Him.

However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch!!!

Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

Each night before you go to bed complete the following statements: I am thankful for__________. 
Today I accomplished_________.

Remember that you are too blessed to be stressed.

When you are feeling down, start listing your many blessings. You'll be smiling before you know it. God Bless You!


5) Email Spoofing

If you receive an email that appears to come from, and that asks for personal information, DO NOT GIVE it out! Lately there has been a rash of spoof emails coming from someone mimicking our email addresses. Please know, we are not sending them.

This brings us to another issue, PLEASE, make sure you update your virus software daily before going online or participating in SSTN.

Thank you!

8) Look n' Learn Memory Technique

I just wanted to write to say that over six months ago we taught our kids the Ten Commandments using the Look n' Learn memory technique. We then reviewed the commands the other day and they still remembered them!
