Here are my own 11 suggestions that will help keep you young by increasing the amount of happiness you feel.
1. Have good communication; don't argue.
When you need to speak up about an issue that's bothering you, adhere to Attitude Reconstruction's Four Rules of Good Communication:
- Speak in "I's" — that is, talk about how you feel, rather than blaming others
- Be specific, and don't over-generalize with "always" or "never."
- Focus on kindness, not negativity
- Truly listen 50% of the time. With practice you will reap undeniable benefits
