Good Advice

You must've read about this before but this is one good advice that is worth sharing. Thanks to my friend, Daisy, for the reminder.
  • Pray.
  • Go to bed on time.
  • Get up on time so you can start the day unrushed.
  • Say "no" to projects that won't fit into your time schedule, or will compromise your mental health.
  • Delegate your tasks to others who are capable.
  • Simplify and unclutter your life.
  • Less is more (although one is often not enough, two are often too many).
  • Allow extra time to do things and to get to places.
  • Pace yourself. Spread out big changes and difficult projects over time; don't lump the hard things all together.
  • Take one day at a time.

  • 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.
  • Live within your budget; don't use credit cards for ordinary purchases.
  • Have backups; an extra car key in your wallet, an extra house key buried in the garden, extra stamps, etc.
  • Keep Your Mouth Shut. This single piece of advice can prevent an enormous amount of trouble.
  • Do something for the kid in you everyday.
  • Carry a bible with you to read while waiting in line.
  • Get enough rest.
  • Eat right.
  • Get organized so everything has it's place.
  • While driving, listen to a tape that can help improve your quality of life.
  • Write down thoughts and inspirations.
  • Everyday, find time to be alone, and breathe.

  • Having problems? Talk to God on the spot. Try to nip small problems in the bud. Don't wait until it's time to go to bed to try and pray. You will fall asleep.
  • Make friends with Godly people.
  • Keep a folder on hand of favorite Scriptures.
  • Remember that the shortest bridge between despair and hope is often a good, "Thank you, Lord."
  • Laugh.
  • Laugh some more.
  • Take your work seriously, but not yourself.
  • Develop and forgiving attitude- most people are doing the best they can.
  • Be kind to unkind people. They probably need it the most.
  • Sit on your ego.
  • Talk less; listen more.
  • Slow down.
  • Remind yourself that you are not the general manager of the universe.
  • Every night before bed, think of one thing you're grateful for that you've never been grateful for before.

I hope you've been blessed by these pieces of advise. I have.
