We learned some of the most basic, most important life lessons as a child. Like mine, your parents probably told you many times to clean your room, eat your veggies, go play outside, or turn off the television.
This good advice is still very relevant to us as adults today:
- Clean your room.
- Make your bed.
- Brush your teeth.
- Get to bed early.
- Don’t watch too much TV.
- Go outside and play.
- Eat your fruits and vegetables.
- Don’t eat too many sweets.
- Be kind to animals.
- Share with others.
- Say “please” and “thank you.”
So, if you’re confused about where to start on your path to self-improvement or lost amid a sea of self-help advice, just think back and trust what your mom told you when you were six. She was right then, and she’s right now — turn off the TV and go outside.
