12 Tips for a healthy and happy new year

12 Tips for a healthy and happy new year from the authors at Loving Healing Press

1. “Don’t complain. Half the people don’t care, & the other half think you’ve got it coming!”
Dirk Chase Eldredge, author of You’ve Gotta Fight Back! Winning with Serious Illness, Injury or Disability

2. “Learn to listen without interrupting.  Don’t tell the other person what you think about this or that issue.  Ask what that person thinks.  Then get the person to clarify. You’ll avoid arguments.  Better still, you’ll connect more with others”
Larry Hayes, author of Mental Illness and Your Town: 37 Ways for Communities to Help and Heal

3. “Lingering under our hurt feelings are unmet expectations. Set reasonable expectations, adjust them when needed, and let go of the rest.”
Holli Kenley, author of Breaking Through Betrayal: And Recovering the Peace Within

4. “Learn to respond to people in your life instead of reacting to them; reactivity is always toxic to relationship.”
William Krill, author of Gentling : A Practical Guide to Treating PTSD in Abused Children

5. “Hug as many friends and relatives as you can!”
Barbara Sinor, author of Tales of Addiction and Inspiration for Recovery

6. “Be mindful and present in everything you do and peace will naturally flow into your life.”
Richard A. Singer, Jr. author of Your Daily Walk with the Great Minds

7. “Start the New Year with a new journal — journaling is akin to your daily vitamin, as it heals, detoxifies and is essential for optimal health.”
Diana Raab, author of Healing With Words: A Writer’s Cancer Journey

8. “Take a walk; whether around your kitchen or neighborhood, endorphins make you happier, pumping blood makes you healthier, moving muscles makes you stronger.”
Sherry Jones-Mayo, author of Confessions of a Trauma Junkie

9. “ Be here now. Be friendly with and respect each and every moment of your life – no matter what’s happening.”
Leslee Tessmann, author of Sacred Grief: Exploring a New Dimension to Grief

10.  “Take 10 – 20 deep slow breaths, morning and evening; costs nothing, does wonders.”
Marian Volkman, author of Life Skills: Improve the Quality of Your Life with Metapscyhology

11. “Remember, you don’t know anything, neither does anyone else! Relax!”
Shaman Elder Maggie Wahls, author of The Shaman Speaks: How to Use the Power of Shamanism to Heal Your Life Now

12. “Identify at least one negative attachment to release and clarify at least one goal to achieve.”
