Healthy Advice from a New Grandparent

Earlier this week, I became a grandparent for the first time, and in two months will greet a second grandchild.....

...and have been thinking about what words of wisdom I could provide the youngsters that could help them start early and stay on track for a healthy lifestyle.  

In the spirit of simple advice that can help a child start out right on the journey of a healthy and prosperous life, here are my initial thoughts.  (Count on me to add to these from time to time as the spirit moves me and as additional ideas come to mind):

Respect Others

Show You Care By Your Actions

Don't Overeat (Eat Nutritious Food)

Share With Others

Smile, Even When It Hurts

Be Humble, Don't Brag

Think Before You Speak

Actions Are Louder Than Words

Clean Your Plate When You Eat

Practice Makes Perfect

Walk Before You Run

Never, Never Ever Give Up

It At First You Don't Succeed Try Again

Look at the Speaker's Eyes

First Things First

Listen and Seek to Understand Before Being Understood

Talk Softly and Carry a Big Stick

Treat Others Better Than They Treat You

Don't Carry A Grudge

Forgive, Even if You Don't Forget

Measure Twice, But Only Cut Once

Skate to Where The Puck is Going

Tell The Truth..Always

Be Polite and Say Please and Thank You

Be Prepared

Read a Book Every Month

Exercise Daily

Don't Spend Money Foolishly, Invest Wisely

Clean Up After Yourself
