Emergency Preparedness – Chill Out.
Wayne Dyer has long been a voice for simple planning and stress-free living. Here are a few thoughts:
1. Understand that you are the source of your stress. I have so many things to do that I can never get caught up. I can never get ahead in this job. I worry about my health problems. I feel uneasy about the economy, and have lost so much money already. My family members are making me feel anxious and fearful. I don’t deserve to feel good when so many are suffering.
2. Return to your happiest moments. Happy memories are your well-deserved heritage and a safety net for comfort. Gratitude can replace worry as you count your blessings.
3. Stop taking yourself so seriously. Next time you are anxious about something, take a step back and ask if it is worth getting worked up about, or what effect it will have by this time tomorrow.
4. Realize you will never get it all done. Look at this “less than” view as coming from a world of abundance, not poverty. Be grateful for every opportunity and simply do what you can.
5. Meditate. Take time to ponder life’s servings for a more enjoyable meal. Remember, you decide whether it’s escargot or snails, caviar or fish eggs, and hamburger or ground cow parts.
CATCH THE VISION, GET FACTS, DEVELOP SKILLS, AND BE PREPARED.
