Life tips

  • Life tips for my friends and readers who are 45-ish.
  • Put away about 15% in your retirement account, above what your employer or government is contributing.
  • Take good care of your relationships--they are like gold.
  • Ignore all the food fads and scares; eat all the colors, eat less and move more. Just like mom said.
  • Everything in moderation; especially alcohol and coffee and just pitch the cigarettes. They've never been found to benefit anything in your body.
  • Don't be a pot head even if it is legal--you need every brain cell you have working at full capacity.
  • Take care of your ears--turn down the music--and your teeth. Don't become a deaf senior citizen with ugly teeth--it's not pleasant. Take out the ear buds and see a dentist twice a year.
  • Go to church. There are thousands of denominations as a result of squabbles that happened years ago. One should meet your needs. The world is actually more religious now than ever before--don't lose out on the benefits.
  • Enjoy the many pleasures of owning a pet, but they are not family--don't kid yourself.
  • Think about the benefits and responsibilities of being a citizen of the United States. It's not perfect, but it's the only one ever created with idea that the state/monarch/king/president doesn't own the people.
