Stress Reducers!

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