Do something you love everyday

I keep a list of things that I like doing. At the beginning of every week, I make sure I put atleast one thing from that list into my calendar. Some of the things I have on that list are:
reading detective novels (preferably Agatha Christie!!), 

watching a detective or thriller movie, playing tennis, watching tennis!!, speaking to close friends (the good old adda), having a cup of self-made  darjeeling tea, reading investment books and reports, playing with my son, reading him storieslistening to songs from Kishore Kumar
the list goes on...
It is important to do things that you love frequently. It refreshes and recharges you.
