10 life-enhancing things YOU can do in 10 MINUTES

MY HUBBIE FOUND THIS AND EMAILED IT TO ME...
I loved it so much, I just had to share!

10 things you can do in 10 minutes or less that will have a positive emotional effect on you
and those you love...
#1. WATCH A SUNSET WITH YOUR LOVED-ONE... 
Nothing extra is necessary. Just sit and take in the natural beauty of the sky and appreciate being able to share it with the one you love.
#2. GET YOUR BODY MOVING...
Shake, twist, and jump around. Let yourself feel the joy of moving to your favourite music, or just the sounds in your head. Run, walk, and bike to your hearts content. You will live longer and love it more.

#3. SIT QUIETLY BY YOURSELF... 
It doesn't really matter where or when. Just let your feelings bubble up and then experience the thoughts flowing out of your mind. Clearing your head and heart will give you extra energy to get through
the rest of the day.

#4. WRITE A THANK-YOU NOTE TO YOUR LOVED ONE... 
When was the last time you thanked your partner for just being who he or she is and being with you? Doing this in writing will give your partner something to cherish for the rest of his or her life.

#5. LOOK THROUGH YOUR OLDEST FAMILY PHOTO ALBUM...
The experience will fill you with fond memories and perhaps make you a bit wistful for days gone by.

#6. PLAY WITH YOUR KIDS... 
Most kids have short attention spans; ten minutes of quality time from a loving adult can make their day. It will also help you stay in touch with the child inside of you.

#7. VISUALISE OR IMAGINE A POSITIVE OUTCOME FOR ANY ISSUE... 
Medical doctors recommend visualisation to patients with chronic and potentially fatal illnesses. If it can help them, it can do the same for you.

#8. GO TO BED WITH YOUR LOVED-ONE 10 MINUTES EARLIER THAN USUAL...
Then spend that time just holding each other. Let the feeling of warmth from your
loved-one  move through you.

#9. HANG OUT BY SOME WATER... 
Studies show that hospital patients who can see a natural body of water from their beds get better at a 30 percent faster rate. If you're not near the coast or a lake, try taking a bath. Doing so is also healing.

#10. WATCH THIS VIDEO...

This is a deeply moving segment that may be the best ten minutes you've ever invested in 
front of a computer.
Sadly, most of us measure happiness by how long the experience lasts. The truth is that a few minutes of joy here and there can make a big difference in what you get out of life.
