JU­LIA’S TIPS FOR STAY­ING PLAY­FUL AND HAPPY

Prevention (Australia) - - Cover Story -

Take your shoes off when you can and walk bare­foot.

Re­mem­ber what it was like to walk across hot bi­tu­men as a kid? It’s fun! We live in shoes. Your feet are the plat­forms that hold ev­ery­thing up. Even at work in the CBD, walk through the park at lunchtime bare­foot in the mid­dle of the day. Take your shoes off, jump from foot to foot. You won’t know your­self.

Get out of that chair and sit on the floor.

Yes, you’ll get un­com­fort­able and then you’ll move. If you sit in a chair you’ll never move. So if you sit on the floor, find a comfy po­si­tion, and after a while you’ll move and find an­other po­si­tion. You’ll just move more.

I’m not say­ing be a Bar­bie Bright­side but, if you can, be a fun per­son to be around.

Don’t be a pain in the arse step­mum, try and be a fun one. Don’t be a pain in the arse girl­friend, be a fun one. As an ac­tor you’re al­ways putting your­self in some­one else’s shoes. So if some­one does some­thing to me and it’s ter­ri­ble I think, ‘Why is he or she do­ing that?’ I’ll be up­set, don’t get me wrong. But try and see it from ev­ery­one’s per­spec­tive. Be kinder. It’s re­ally easy. You can be an­gry but why not flip it? Do the op­po­site.
