Life Without Stress

Life  Without Stress

That we live in an extremely stressful environment

is  abundantly evident.  However, stress is nothing new -

 it's been  around since the beginning. Robert Louis

Stevenson made these  suggestions over 100 years ago:

 Make up your mind to be  happy -

learn to find pleasure in simple things.



 Make the best of circumstances.

No  one has everything and everyone

 has something of sorrow.



 Don't take yourself too seriously.



 Don't let criticism worry you -

you  can't please everybody.

Don't let your neighbors set  your standards -

be yourself.



 Do things you enjoy doing but stay out of  debt.



 Don't borrow trouble. Imaginary things

are harder to bear than  actual ones.



 Since hate poisons the soul,

don't  cherish enmities and grudges.

Avoid people who make you unhappy.



 Have many interests. If you can't travel,

read  about places.



 Don't hold post-mortems or spend time

 brooding over sorrows and mistakes.



Don't be the one who never gets over  things.



Keep busy at something.

A very busy  person never has

 time to be unhappy.



Times haven't changed -

Relax and  have a wonderful day!

Today and all days-

Always - in all  ways!

If you fill your heart with regrets of yesterday

and the worries of tomorrow,

that you can never get back.


Do what you can, for who you can,

with what you have, and where you are.
