(Clearwisdom.net) After I started practicing Falun Dafa in 1997, I have experienced enormous physical and mental improvements.

I did not like to get up early in the morning before practicing Falun Dafa. After I began practicing, I have been persistent in getting up early every morning. My body feels as light as air after doing the five sets of exercises, and I feel energetic at work.

I quit smoking, a bad habit that I had for over ten years. My whole family was very happy about that. There is no more odors of cigarette and alcohol coming from my body. I became healthier and healthier. I saved money by not buying cigarettes and alcohol, but more importantly, I no longer had to get medical care. People around me said, "Look at this old man, his face turned rosy in complexion after practicing Falun Gong. He looks very energetic." Because of that, many people also began to practice Falun Gong.

Before practicing Falun Gong, I either spent all day watching TV, reading newspapers, drinking tea, or playing chess, Mahjong, or cards. I spent most of my time doing things like that.

After I started practicing Falun Dafa, I did not waste my time on those things anymore. I quietly studied the Fa. The more I read Dafa books, the more I liked reading them. The more I read them, the more I can feel how profound Dafa is. The more I read them, the clearer my mind becomes. Now when I encounter difficulties or conflicts, I no longer get angry, and I can solve the issue in a kind way. It is just like what Master Li said, "The Buddha-light illuminates everywhere and rectifies all abnormalities." People around me said of me, "He is always very happy all day long."

Another good thing is that I require myself to follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance in my daily life. I also taught my children to follow this principle. My grandson was very naughty, and nobody could handle him well before. I taught him to study Dafa. His behavior has gotten much better. Now he is clean, polite, and cares about others.

All in all, by practicing Falun Dafa, we are improving ourselves. Here I want to tell everyone: If you believe that Falun Dafa is good, you will surely be blessed.
