One of the easiest and funniest life instructions is the one I got, surprisingly, from my husband. Just for your information, he is a bit critical toward most self-help guidance. However, this phrase made even an impact on him.

It is simple: Do not eat bad biscuits.

Biscuits are seldom good for your health, teeth, or butt. If you, however, want to eat them, eat cookies you love.

Eat something which gives you pleasure with every bite. Otherwise, why bother? Why not just leave the bad cookies on the plate?

Okay, if one of your life’s VIPs has baked the bad biscuits, you probably need to taste one to be polite. That is an exception.

Actually, this self-help advice is not a question about biscuits. It is a question about your everyday choices.

Do you have a good and valid reason to watch bad movies, read stupid books, play silly games, go to boring parties, hang out with depressing people, drink bad-quality wine, sit in bad chairs or read stupid posts from social media?Why bother?

Why are you using your valuable time and energy for meaningless or harmful things if you could do then something more rewarding and important?

Something which takes you closer to your life goals and missions. Something which makes good for the people you love or those who need your help. Something which you love and which makes good for your body, mind, and soul.

Don’t eat bad biscuits.
