Coping with Stress

Is there a woman alive who doesn't suffer from stress? If there is, seek her out, ask her to share her wisdom. When you find her, I'd be willing to bet she'll offer the following suggestions:

Cultivate gratitude.
Carve out an hour a day for solitude.
Begin and end the day with prayer, meditation, reflection.
Keep it simple.
Keep ur house picked up.
Don't over schedule.
Strive for realistic deadlines.
Never make a promise you can't keep.
Allow an extra half hour for everything you do.
Create quite surroundings at home and at work.
Go to bed at 9 twice a week.
Always carry something interesting to read.
Breathe- deeply and often.
Move- walk, dance, run, find a sport you njoy.
Drink pure spring water. Lot of it.
Eat only when hungry.
If it's not delicious, don't eat it.
BE instead of DO.
Set aside one day a week for rest and renewal.
Laugh more often.
Luxuriate in your senses.
Always opt for comfort.
Start pleasing yourself.
Don't answer the phone during dinner.
Stop trying to please everybody.
Let Mother Nature nurture.
Stay away from negative people.
Approach problems as challenges.
Honor your aspirations.
Set achievable goals.
Don't be afraid of your passion.
Surrender expectations.
Savor beauty.
Create boundaries.
For every "yes" let there be a "no".
Don't worry; be happy.
Remember, happiness is a living emotion.
Care for your soul.
Cherish your dreams.
Express love everyday.
Search for your authentic self until you find her.


  1. I don't do many of these... no wonder I'm so stressed! LOL! In all seriousness, there are some good points there. I will sleep on them (it's past 1:30 AM). Thanks for sharing!
