    Funky design, I like it.

    You are absolutely right people have to keep control of what they can and stay calm to get through the storm.

    Personally I am trying to detach myself from the economy by going more minimal and relying on less ties to money in general.

      Thanks. I tend to try to stay away from monthly payments for things so If I were to ever lose an income stream I don’t have to worry about having to make so many payments each month.

      Yea, I like to sit down sometimes and just remember the good things in life. It’s very relaxing.

    Nice tips. I would add take one step at a time. Many people overwhelm themselves with trying to tackle everything all at once.

      Very true. Taking on too much can have an effect you weren’t looking for.

    These are great tips no matter what is causing the stress. I’ve gotten better at handling stress as I’ve gotten older. I realized my work isn’t life and death situations.

      Exactly. If it can’t kill me, it shouldn’t stress me out.

    Great list! It’s inspired me to post something tomorrow. Dealing with stress is a big one for me since I’m digging myself out of a debt-hole and finding financial independence. While living a long way from home and working 4 jobs. It is an interesting process…

    Ya know, it always has to be the simplest things that are so difficult to master for so many … especially the simplicity one!

    I use 1/2 ans 1/2 in my coffee every morning! sometimes with a drop of almond flavoring, just like the coffee houses! That is the luxury I started allowing myself when my husband first got diagnosed with the kidney/liver disease less than a year before his double organ transplant. A small thing that was SO luxurious and made me feel like a million bucks when I really needed it! It IS the little things in life that we allow ourselves that make it all worthwhile. That and a good hard laugh!
