10 TIPS PARA REDUCIR EL "Stress"

11. Practice preventive maintenance. Your car, appliances, home, and relationships will be less likely to break down/fall apart "at the worst possible moment."

12. Procrastination is stressful. Whatever you want to do tomorrow, do today; whatever you want to do today, do it now.

13. Plan ahead. Don?t let the gas tank get below one-quarter full; keep a well-stocked "emergency shelf" of home staples; don't wait until you?re down to your last bus token or postage stamp to buy more; etc.

14. Don't put up with something that doesn't work right. If your alarm clock, wallet, shoe laces, windshield wipers -- whatever -- are a constant aggravation, get them fixed or get new ones.

15. Allow 15 minutes of extra time to get to appointments. Plan to arrive at an airport one hour before domestic departures.

16. Eliminate (or restrict) the amount of caffeine in your diet.

17. Always set up contingency plans, "just in case." ("If for some reason either of us is delayed, here?s what we?ll do?" kind of thing. Or, "If we get split up in the shopping center, here?s where we'll meet.")

18. Relax your standards. The world will not end if the grass doesn?t get mowed this weekend.

19. Pollyanna-Power! For every one thing that goes wrong, there are probably 10 or 50 or 100 blessings. Count 'em!

21. Say "No!" Saying "no" to extra projects, social activities, and invitations you know you don't have the time or energy for takes practice, self-respect, and a belief that everyone, everyday, needs quiet time to relax .
20. Ask questions. Taking a few moments to repeat back directions, what someone expects of you, etc., can save hours. (The old "the hurrieder I go, the behinder I get, " idea.)
