Â An Angel says, “Never borrow from the future.
Â If you worry about what may happen tomorrow Â & it doesn’t happen, you have worried in vain.
Â If it does happen, you have to worry twice.”
1.Â Â Pray–often!
2Â Â Â Go to bed on time.
3.Â Â Get up on time and start the day unrushed.
4.Â Â Say No to projects that won’t fit into your Â time schedule, or that will compromise yourÂ mental health.
5.Â Â Delegate tasks to capable others.
6.Â Â Simplify and unclutter your life.
7.Â Â Â Less is more. (Often, one is not enough, butÂ two are often too many.)
8.Â Â Â Allow extra time to do things & get places.
9.Â Â Â Pace yourself. Spread out big changes andÂ difficult projects over time; don’t lump theÂ hard things all together.
10.Â Â Â Take one day at a time.Â Remember that God is in control, not you!
11.Â Â Â Â Separate worries from concerns . If aÂ situation is a concern, find out what GodÂ would have you do and let go of the anxiety.Â Â If you can’t do anything about a situation,Â forget it.
12.Â Â Â Â Live within your budget; don’t use creditÂ cards for ordinary purchases.
13.Â Â Â Â Have backups; an extra car key in yourÂ wallet, an extra house key buried in the garden,Â extra stamps, etc.
14.Â Â Â Â K.M.S. (Keep Mouth Shut). This single pieceÂ of advice prevents an enormous amount ofÂ trouble.
15.Â Â Â Â Do something for the Kid in You everyday.
16.Â Â Â Â Carry a Bible with you to read, whileÂ waiting in line.Â It will help you with your “Patience”.
17.Â Â Â Â Get enough rest.
18.Â Â Â Â Eat right.
19.Â Â Â Â Get organized so everything has its place.Â Disorder at home generates disorder outside the home.
20.Â Â Â Â Â Listen to a tape while driving that can helpÂ improve your quality of life, not make you cry or depressed.
21.Â Â Â Â Write down thoughts and inspirations, then revisit them in prayer and supplication.
22.Â Â Â Â Every day, find time to be alone.
23.Â Â Â Â Having problems? Talk to God on the spot, at that minute, just like you would a friend.Â Â Try to nip small problems in the bud. Don’tÂ wait until it’s time to go to bed to try andÂ pray.Â
24.Â Â Â Â Make friends with good people.
25.Â Â Â Â Keep a folder of favorite scriptures on hand.
26.Â Â Â Â Remember that the shortest bridge betweenÂ despair and hope is often, “Thank you,Â Jesus.”
27.Â Â Â Â Laugh.
28.Â Â Â Â Laugh some more!
29.Â Â Â Â Take your work seriously, but not yourself.
Â 30.Â Â Â Develop a forgiving attitude (most people are doing the best they can).
Â 31.Â Â Â Be kind to unkind people (they probablyÂ need it the most).
Â 32.Â Â Â Sit on your ego.Â Develop an attitude of humility!
Â 33Â Â Â Â Talk less; listen more.
Â 34.Â Â Â Â Slow down.
Â 35.Â Â Â Â Remind yourself that you are not theÂ general manager of the universe.
Â 36 .Â Â Â Every night before bed, think of one thingÂ you’re grateful for that you’ve never beenÂ grateful for before.
Â GOD HAS A WAY OF TURNING THINGSÂ AROUND FOR YOUR GOOD!
Â “If God is for us, who can be against us?”
