the brief guide to life

I read, that the following quote of only 5 words make up the shortest guide to life...

"Smile, breathe & go slowly"
Thích Nhất Hạnh
(buddhist monk, teacher, author, poet & peace activist)

If you need something a little more comprehensive, try the brief guide to life...

less TV, more reading
less shopping, more outdoors
less clutter, more space
less rush, more slowness
less consuming, more creating
less junk, more real food
less busywork, more impact
less driving, more walking
less noise, more solitude
less focus on the future, more on the present
less work, more play
less worry, more smiles

Easy peasy lemon squeezy???
