 Coping with Stress

 Is there a human being alive who doesn’t suffer from stress? If there is, seek them out, ask them to share their wisdom. I am sure they would offer the following:
° Cultivate gratitude
° Carve out an hour a day for solitude
° Begin and end the day with prayer, meditation, reflection
° Keep it simple
° Keep your house in order
° Don’t over-schedule
° Strive for realistic deadlines
° Never make a promise you can’t keep
° Allow an extra ½ hour for everything you do
° Create quiet surroundings at home and at work
° Go to bed at 9 o’clock twice a week
° Always carry something interesting to read
° Breathe........deeply and often
° Move.........walk, dance, swim, yoga, find a sport you enjoy
