Last week, I wrote a post with a bunch of advice, starting with Don’t.
So here’s a list of Do’s, all derived from personal experience.
Do wash your hands after going to the bathroom.
Do eat ice cream for dinner once in a while.
Do kiss your husband/ wife/ partner.
Do get a dog/ cat. Pets are awesome.
Do something new once a month.
Do smile at your neighbor.
Do wear that sparkly top for no reason.
Do spend that extra 5 minutes in the shower. As long as no one is in danger, do it. Do it for you.
Do drink good coffee.
Do read at least one classic. Take your pick. But read at least one.
Do something nice for yourself.
Do admit when you’re wrong.
Do what makes you feel good.
Do listen to your mother.
Do call your parents.
Do thank your children’s teachers.
Do ugly cry when you have to.

Do get into the picture.
Do watch a movie by yourself, at least once in your lifetime.
Do order the fries on the side.
Do change your hair color at least once.
Do own at least one pair of really good jeans.
Do invest in a good bra (if you wear one).
Do wear a bra if you don’t.
Do be yourself.
Do be kind whenever possible. It is always possible (said a wise Tibetan monk).
Do live a little.
