Take Care of Your Vehicle
Oh, I have to weigh in. I have to add my advice with some priorities.
1. Take care of your body. You can't go anywhere without a healthy body. All of the sins of our youth come back to haunt us--Tobacco use, unhealthy food, too much sun, sedentary lifestyle. Make a life plan to be healthy.
1. Develop passions. No, not commercially driven such as spectator sports, gambling, etc. Instsead, art, music, literature, exercise, crafts, volunteer work, etc. These are cheap and rewarding.
2. Learn to love what you have to do anyway.
3. Don't buy what you can't afford. Wait until you can afford it or don't buy it at all.
4. Don't expect something outside yourself to save you--not your relatives, your friends, or a higher power. Take responsibility for your life.
5. Take Garrison Keillor's attitude--"It could be worse."

1. I am surprised the word "balance" appears nowhere on your list
Nothing wrong with a chocolate chip cookie every once in a while (or even 2). Just don't let them take over.

Nothing wrong with spectator sports. Just balance them with the others on your list.

2. There are only 2 things I have learned from my 50+ years on this earth.
1. All things in moderation. Or put another way, anything taken to excess is dangerous.

2. Everything changes. Or put another way, nothing ever remains the same.

3. Quackery and woo-woo!
Next you'll be making the Extraordinary Claim that the Earth is four or five billion years old, or that Pluto isn't really a planet, but a vegetable.

:evilgrin:
