POSITIVE LIFE LESSONS

This has very little to do with illustration but everything to do with everyone's life.

32 WAYS TO REDUCE STRESS

1. Pray or think kindly of other all the time.
2. Go to bed on time.
3. Get up on time so you can 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. (Although one is often not enough, two are often too many.)
8. Allow extra time to do things and to get to 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.
11. Separate worries from concerns. 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 can prevent an enormous amount of trouble.
15. Do something for the Kid in You everyday.
16. Get enough rest.
17. Eat right.
18. Get organized so everything has its place.
19. Listen to a tape while driving that can help improve your quality of life.
20. Write down thoughts and inspirations.
21. Every day, find time to be alone.
22. Remember that the shortest bridge between despair and hope is often a good "Thank you."
23. Laugh.
24. Laugh some more!
25. Take your work seriously, but not yourself.
26. Develop a forgiving attitude (most people are doing the best they can).
27. Be kind to unkind people (they probably need it the most).
28. Sit on your ego.
29. Talk less; listen more.
30. Slow down.
31. Remind yourself that you are not the general manager of the universe
32. Every night before bed, think of one thing you're grateful for that you've never been grateful for before.

Learning and growing is being reminded and acting on what you already know to be true.

I like to look at artistic photos of people, especially at their smiling faces. If you have some free time go to http://top-personals.net for positive single and rate pictures of singles from your neighborhood. Adult Singles
