A 50-Year-Old’s Top Seven Pieces of Advice for 20-Year-Olds
A 50-year-old lawyer in Minnesota posted a list of advice she wishes someone her age gave HER when she was 20. There’s nothing too groundbreaking in it, but it’s making the rounds online.
Here are her top seven pieces of advice . . .
1. Be kind, or at least courteous to other people. It doesn’t really require much effort, and it makes you happier in the end. So, compliment people whenever you can, and try to be as understanding and patient as possible.
2. Don’t try to fit in too much or dwell on other people’s opinions. Just think of them as suggestions, and stay true to yourself. Also, never make a major life decision just to please someone else, like your parents.
3. Never stay in a bad relationship. Even if it’s hard to leave, it’s worth it in the end.
4. Don’t focus too much on money. And remember that all your stuff is replaceable. In the end, it’s not as important as the people in your life, or the relationships you have.
5. Don’t make snap judgements about people. You never know the true context of what’s going on in their life. So try to give people a break now and then.
6. Don’t beat yourself up too much. Do what you can to fix your mistakes, then move on. Holding onto guilt for too long is toxic to your own happiness.
7. Don’t worry about getting older. Life can be better at 50 than it is at 20.
Should Non-Smokers Get Extra Vacation Days Since They Don’t Take Smoke Breaks?
Just what we all need: MORE vacation days that we won’t use.
A new study found that when people who smoke take smoke breaks, it adds up to about six total work days per year. Obviously, people who don’t smoke don’t take those breaks.
So a new survey asked people if non-smokers should get extra vacation days to make things fair. And believe it or not, the overwhelming answer from both non-smokers AND smokers is . . . YES.
80% of non-smokers say they should get at least an extra day or two off . . . and 14% think they should get a full extra week off.
And 62% of smokers think their coworkers who don’t smoke should get at least an extra day or two off . . . with 16% of them saying it should be a full extra week.
