An important message from a young woman about finding breast lumps:



We often ignore that good health requires some efforts; Chinese sages have an old quotes that

cultivate healthy habits to longevity. Please see translation below:

Get up early in the morning, sleep well at night, eat less than 70% of fullness, and run regularly,

laugh often, don’t worry too much, keep oneself busy every day, these are good ways for staying young.

Walk 5000 Steps every day, sleep at least 7 hours every night.

Do not over indulge on food, live a balanced life of work and rest.

Be happy and content. Don’t make unnecessary complaints.

Love others as if loving oneself; help others from the bottom of your heart.

“Tolerance” is building for future blessing; “Happiness” is good for longevity,

“Exercise” is the foundation for health; “Meditation” is good for the mind.

Do consider life as an adventurous journey; do not take things too seriously.



A little of ten things daily:

Have a little smile

Talk a little softer

Have a little less temper

Work a little more

Make a little less excuses

Think a little harder

Be a little more efficient

Move a little faster

Talk a little sweeter

Have a little more courage
