Everyone has too much stress in there lives these days, here’s 52 ways to reduce that stress, although here I reprint only the top 10:
52 Proven Stress Reducers
Get up fifteen minutes earlier in the morning.Â The inevitable morning mishaps will be less stressful.
Prepare for the morning the evening before.Â Set the breakfast table, make lunches, put out the clothes you plan to wear, etc.
Don’t rely on your memory.Â Write down appointment times, when to pick up the laundry, when library books are due, etc.
Do nothing which, after being done, leads you to tell a lie.
Make duplicates of all keys.Â Bury a house key in a secret spot in the garden and carry a duplicate car key in your wallet, apart from your key ring.
Practice preventive maintenance.Â Your car, appliances, home, and relationships will be less likely to break down/fall apart “at the worst possible moment.”
Be prepared to wait.Â A paperback can make a wait in a post office line almost pleasant.
Procrastination is stressful.Â Whatever you want to do tomorrow, do today; whatever you want to do today, do it now.
Plan ahead.Â Don’t let the gas tank get below one-quarter full; keep a well-stocked “emergency shelf” of home staples; don’t wait until you’re down to your last bus token or postage stamp to buy more; etc.
Don’t put up with something that doesn’t work right.Â If your alarm clock, wallet, shoe laces, windshield wipers – whatever- are a constant aggravation, get them fixed or get new ones.
