10 Tips for Reducing Stress

  1. Get organized. Put things back where you found them and you won't go berserk looking for them.
  2. Learn to say NO. If you don't want to and don't have to - don't.
  3. Set your priorities. Endless "to DO" lists are a dark cloud over your head. Choose 3-5 things to do each day.
  4. Have faith. Prayer or reflection on our Lord and Savior will lighten the load.
  5. Let others do their own thing. You are not the general manager of the universe. Besides, the same way all the time would be boring.
  6. Give people a break. Other people have bad days, too! Be patient and tolerant.
  7. Monitor your self-talk.You create some stress for yourself by what you say in your head.
  8. Use different words. It's not a problem, it's an opportunity!
  9. Get rid of clutter. Haven't used it in a year? Toss it.
  10. Stop blaming others. Only your mind can make you angry - not things, not people.

Daughters of Eve..

...pictures of the finished quilt; with exceptions. There is not a dove and olive leaf in the center; there are no zigzags around the center block; there are no words "Be still and know that I am God." ...all that was in the original pattern. I acknowledge the omissions, accept the omissions and send the quilt top to Cousin Doris in Andrews to do her magic with the awesome machine!
