While these 14 steps encompass almost all aspects of your life, they all boil down to one single thing, in my opinion. It is to put a smile on your face and enable you to tackle the rough moments in life with a little bit more energy. My personal suggestion for these 14 steps, is to pick on and intently focus on it for a day, or a week. To make it a priority and follow through. If you lose track of this, hopefully soon-to-be habit, try again the next day. And again. Once the step you picked has become second nature, a habit, pick the next step.
If you follow through, you will on average and in generally be a more positive, energetic and happy person.
While this study was conducted on a subgroup of the population and the study itself was not easily accessible from the article, as far as I could see, the results are really interesting. In short, if you adhere to the RDI (Recommended Daily Intake) of Vitamin-D, you just might not get enough. Arterial stiffness has been associated with all kinds of problem with the cardiovascular system. Supplementing your, most likely, Vitamin-D-deficient diet with more Vitamin D seem to be a healthy thing to do. Now we need more studies supporting the result of this study.
I, personally, dislike anecdotes. They do not necessarily have a foundation in science and says nothing about anything for the general population as a whole. However, the article linked below tells a story with a strong base in biology and physiology and goes to show that as long as a person is diagnosed properly, that person can also be medically treated properly. A diagnose actually describing a symptom (depression) and not the cause (feeling shame and experienced neglect) will most likely not cause proper treatment to be given.
This article supports a feeling I have had almost all my life. How practicing a skill in short intervals increases proficiency faster, compared to practicing something intently for a long time, relative to time spent.
