The Ten Commandments for reducing STRESS

Something tells me that we could all use a little reality check on feeling overly responsible this time of year.   So here you go:

  1. Thou shalt not be perfect, or even try to be.
  2. Thou shalt not try to be all things to all people.
  3. Thou shalt leave things undone that ought to be done.
  4. Thou shalt not spread thyself too thin.
  5. Thou shalt learn to say no.
  6. Thou shalt schedule time for thyself and thy supportive network.
  7. Thou shalt switch off and do nothing regularly.
  8. Thou shalt be boring, inelegant, untidy and unattractive at times.
  9. Thou shalt not feel guilty.
  10. Thou shalt not be your own worst enemy, but be instead your own best friend.
