Ask The Past offers snippets of advice from very old books. An example, from 1658, involves “playing with” cats –
☞ “Some have shod a Cat round, with putting melted Pitch into foure Walnut-shels, and placing her feet therein, and she will make pretty sport.”
Thou wilst make pretty sport of reading Ask The Past HERE.

Mental_floss published an excellent collection of advice obtained from several centenarians about how to live a long life. My favorite is “Try not to eat anything that’s healthy. It’s true. I eat whatever I want. The secret to longevity is ice cream.”; of course that is contradicted by someone else with “Mind your own business, and don’t eat junk food.”

Cracked has another winning column in this one. Six common pieces of advice are examined and explained how they are wrong and what advice would be better. All 6 seem sensible to me. For example, #3. “Don’t Take S*** From Anyone”. Following this nugget of advice will often end badly, so it is suggested that “Pick your battles” is a better alternative.

As one who usually doesn’t care for touchy-feely stuff, I was pleasantly surprised at this article from PositivityBlog. It presents some of Mahatma Gandhi’s best bits of advice. The advice seems to be as relevant today as it ever was (perhaps ever more so). The 10 main points are below, but the full article is HERE (MUST read).
1. Change yourself
2. You are in control
3. Forgive and let it go
4. Without action you aren’t going anywhere
5. Take care of this moment
6. Everyone is human
8. See the good in people and help them
9. Be congruent, be authentic, be your true self
10. Continue to grow and evolve
