05 Apr 3-30-17 A list of the best things you can do
In the last week, I could tell I was getting one of those minor sicknesses floating around. I went running in the morning and about a quarter mile from my house, I was thinking, “Man, this is going to be tough run, for some reason.” I ran for about 45 more minutes. The whole time I was running, I was trying to think of why I felt so bad. Was I not eating properly, did I have some soda the day before, maybe I didn’t sleep enough the night before. All I know was I couldn’t wait to finish this run! When I got back to my house, I was flat worn out. I didn’t eat much for breakfast and then when I got to work, I could not get warm enough. That’s when I finally realized I was getting sick. As the day progressed, my body ached more and more and all I wanted to do was go to sleep. My typical remedy for what I am guessing was the flu, is to go home and get some sleep. That night I went to bed at 6 and I didn’t get up until 6 the next morning. I didn’t take any medicine or anything. I just went to sleep for 12 hours. I was fine the next day. So, the best thing you can do when you start to get sick is get some sleep. Plain and simple. Ever since I was in college, that’s how I would get better. I would drop everything and go home to get sleep.
Here are some other ‘Best things you could do”.
The best thing you can do when you are hungry at night is to NOT eat. If you get in the habit of late night snacks, you’re going to get into the habit of buying bigger belts.
The best thing you can do for a young child is to get their parents to save $100 a month. That’s an easy way to save about $50,000 for the child. That can be a huge help to that child when they graduate high school and are trying to decide what their next step will be.
The best thing you can do before you go on a vacation in your car is to check your tire pressure. It’s simple and quick. Your car will run better, you’ll get better gas mileage, and your tires will last much longer.
The best thing you can do when you’re bored is to read a book. We have so many other opportunities for entertainment that we often skip one of the best – a good book.
The best thing you can do for good health is to eat lots and lots of veggies. Too much meat and snacks is bad for you, but you can’t eat too many vegetables.
The best thing you can do for a construction project you’re doing is to plan, plan, and plan. Remember that. Plan it out. I see too many people starting a project, whether it’s new construction or remodeling, and it’s a mess. Why? Because it was not planned out. Plan your work and work your plan.
The best thing to do on a windy day is to Not rake leaves. Been there, done that. I sure didn’t look too smart out there doing it, either.
And lastly, the best thing to do when you think something is too go to be true is to realize it’s too good to be true.
