Stress Reducers for the week!

It's Monday again and that means 5 more stress reducer tips! I hope everyone has a great week ahead!

1. Practice preventive maintenance. Your car, appliances, home and relationships will be less likely to break down/fall apart at the worse possible moment.

2. Be prepared to wait. A paperback can make a wait in a post office line almost pleasant.

3. Procrastination is stressful. Whatever you want to do tomorrow do today; what you want to do today, do it now.

4. Plan ahead. 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.

5. Don't put up with something that doesn't work right. If your alarm clock, wallet, shoe laces, windshield wipers-whatever- are a constant aggravation, get them fixed or get new ones.

If you happened to miss out on my first post of stress reducers visit here to see 5 more stress reducers!

Unfortunately I am a serious procrastinator! Thanks for the tips!

I agree with all of these. I think it is a great idea that you are posting them. Nothing is more stressful than praying and hoping you make it to the gas station.

My kids have gotten to the point that they always carry a book, MP3 or game when they think they'll have to wait.

I like your stress reducers.
When I go to an appointment I try to always take a book.
My mom used to say `Don't put off til tomorrow what you can do today`
