Life tip #22: Be nice
I hope you’re all having a very nice Monday so far! I’ve got to say I was so pleasantly surprised by all of the comments on my eat mindfully life tip last week. It’s great to see that others care so much about food/eating and that many of you already know what mindful eating is. I’ll have to keep in mind that you love talking about food as much as I do!
So today’s life tip is much easier said than done. I remember when I was younger I’d wake up and say to myself “I’m going to be nice today” and then something fell and broke, someone changed the channel when I was watching, a joke got carried away, etc… this and that and my reminder flew out the window.
I especially know that most of you reading this are nice, but even here at FLC I’ve experienced some unnecessary negativity through a comment or two. So this is just yet another friendly reminder which I hope doesn’t fly out the window at the first drop of a hat.
One way to avert from anger is to be nice and use love in place of hate. Again, easier said than done, but it’s worth giving a try… especially if you remember right in the middle of an argument. It appears that children should have a class dedicated to being nice and teaching them how to be nice in each situation. Somedays it just seems like there isn’t enough niceness in the world.
