30 Things to Start Doing for Yourself

30 Things to Start Doing for Yourself

Our previous article, 30 Things to Stop Doing to Yourself, was well received by most of our readers, but several of you suggested that we follow it up with a list of things to start doing.

So I sat down last night with our original article and the two reader’s revisions as a guide, and a couple hours later finalized a new list of 30 things; which ended up being, I think, a perfect complement to the original. Here it is, a positive ‘to-do’ list for the upcoming year – 30 things to start doing for yourself: Thanks! Related May 28, 2014
