9 Ladies dancing = figure 4 single leg calf raise

10 Lords-a-leaping = squat jumps 

11 Pipers Piping = weight by mouth and extend

  2. “Treat yourself like someone you are responsible for helping.”
  3. “Make friends with people who want the best for you.”
  4. “Compare yourself to who you were yesterday, not to who someone else is today.”
  5. “Do not let your children do anything that makes you dislike them.”
  6. “Set your house in perfect order before you criticize the world.”
  7. “Pursue what is meaningful (not what is expedient).”
  8. “Tell the truth – or, at least, don’t lie.”
  9. “Assume that the person you are listening to might know something you don’t.”
  10. “Be precise In Your Speech.”
  11. “Do not bother children while they are skateboarding.”
  12. “Pet a cat when you encounter one in the street.”
