7 Important Things In Life You Should Know To Help You Along The Way

Updated on February 9, 2013

7 things you should know can be very valuable to life's long journey. Maybe one of these will help you out along the way. We are never to young or old to learn new things. Remember that most things in life are trivial and fighting with your spouse about burned potatoes is just being childish. Learn to have a different perspective on things and you will notice the things in the world that really matter.

1. Learn how to eat healthy. Eating healthy can increase your lifespan by many years and you will also feel better during those years. Eating fresh fruits and vegetables are a great place to start. You do not have to change your diet completely overnight, in fact it is better for your digestive system for a slower change. Changing to a completely new diet can make you ill. There are many good books on eating healthy, and everyone has their own ideas on it. Take a good vitamin supplement and form your own opinions on the healthy foods.

2. Learn how to beat stress. Of the 7 things you should know, this could be the most important. A stressful life is is very hard on a person and their life is often cut short due to a stroke or heart attack. Learn to control stress early in life and take time to relax often. Learn to control stress or it will end up controlling you. You will wind up being irritable and unhappy. Going through life is a lot more fun when you are happy.

3. Learn to balance time between family and work. Do not get so caught up in your job that you lose track of what is important, your family. Getting money to buy things for your family is important so you need to find the fine balancing point. Time lost with your family can never be replaced. Being there when they need you is very important and you should always be there then if at all possible. If a family member or friend is in the hospital, try to visit all you can. Being there with no visitors makes for a very rough stay.

4. Learn to keep good friends for a lifetime. Having friends is a very big part of our lives. We are a social creature and to go through life without friends is incomprehensible. Friendship starts in early childhood and some people nurture these friendships their whole lives. Friends can help you through times of trouble and even help you build your house. Even if a friend moves away, it is easy to stay in touch will all the messengers and social sites on the web.

5. Learn to say you are sorry. We all make mistakes in life and to say you are sorry is important. Hurt feelings can grow out of proportion and you could lose a good friend because of it. Learn how to apologize and life will go smoother. Do not think that it is unmanly to say you are sorry. You can lose a spouse, friends, parents, or kids because of simply not saying you are sorry. . They say sorry is the hardest word to say and it is only 5 letters.

6. Learn how to forgive. This is something everyone should learn how to do. This can be as hard to do as saying I'm sorry. When we feel we have been wronged against, anger wants to rise to the top of our brain and take control of us. Some people might sulk and feel bad over this for a long time. Do not let this anger control you. Forgive and let it go.

7. Learn how to love. Of all the 7 things you should know, this could be the most important. Some people go through their whole life without learning how to love. They are missing out on the best thing there is. True love will stand the test of time and being apart. This is a love that will outlast the shining stars and the end of time. So learn how to really love and it will come back to you over and over.

As you go through life keep looking for more life tips. Anything to make you happy and your life more fulfilling is worthwhile. Always strive to keep your family happy and in good health. Spend as much time as possible with them and keep them all as your best friends.

      Thank you Lucky Cats. As adults we let greed enter our lives and soon it takes control of us completely. Our priorities need re-evaluated because we take nothing with us.

      Thak you so much tsmog. The peacock is beautiful as life itself should be. Us adults fight worse than any children. Little kids fight and 5 minutes later they are best friends again, all forgotten. After we get older, we forget to just let things go.
