Advice for Life
Preparing for Cold Weather Before you turn those furnaces on again, be sure to change your filter. Filters should be changed every fall. If you use your
furnace constantly, then you should change your furnace filter every 3-4 months. It's also a good idea to have your
air ducts cleaned professionally so there is nothing restricting the air flow. If your wall or ceiling shows any signs of black soot above your vents, that's a sign
that deadly carbon monoxide is coming into the room. Get a professional in right away to check out your furnace and air ducts.
Give Thanks for Simple Things At the beginning of your meal, give thanks. Let each family member or guest express what they
are thankful for. Often it's the simple things of life that are the most meaningful. Give thanks to God and to each other.
Open Your Heart to Family and Friends Your friends and family are your closest links to happiness and freedom. With and through them, you learn to
love, share, care and experience joy. In times of sadness, it is friends and family that stand beside us and encourage us. To open doors of success, share your
deepest feelings and dreams with the people you care about most.
Choose to Succeed Let go of resentments and all anger. These feelings will bring you poor health. Let them go. Life is too short to be in bondage to
negative feelings. Let your loving nature dominate your thoughts, words and actions. Choose to bring more love and forgiveness into your life. These positive
feelings are like fresh blossoms of spring and lead to a healthier body.
