Earlier this year, Pope Francis outlined a ten-point plan for happiness. The Top 10 list appeared in an interview for the Argentine magazine Viva, which was released to celebrate Francis' first 500 days in office. As the National Catholic Register reports, Francis was interviewed by Pablo Calvo, "an old acquaintance" of his, which added a familiar and off-the-cuff quality to the interview. Calvo also noted that Francis rarely referenced God during their 77-minute conversation.

Here are Francis' 10 steps for a happy, healthy life.

1) "Live and let live"

The first step to peace and happiness, said Francis, is following the ancient advice of the Romans: Campa e fascia campĂ , or, "live and let live." This advice is an echo of his now famous "Who am I to judge?" line, which was spoken in the context of his view that the Church should not "interfere spiritually" in the life of any person, gay or straight.

you will be successful."
