As we are coming up to the Festive Season – the so-called time of having fun, laughter and enjoying life- I thought I would put this out with a bit of a tongue in cheek style from that “Bah Humbug” part of you.

Here is my definitive list for keeping yourself from enjoying life (well it’s for today anyway!) –

  2. DON’T smile a lot.
  3. Tell yourself you are too old to keep being curious and a life-long learner.
  4. Don’t bother with the simple things in life – want more luxury.
  5. Never allow a real belly laugh till the tears of laughter run down your cheeks.
  6. Stay with your negativity.
  7. Hang on to all that’s wrong in your life, so you don’t move on.

  9. Don’t bother being interested in who and what‘s around you.
  10. Be a Couch Potato.
