1. Turn needs into preferences. Our basic physical needs translate into food, water, and keeping warm. Everything else is a preference. Don't get attached to preferences.

2. Be prepared to wait. A paperback can make a wait in a post office line almost pleasant.

3. Have a forgiving view of events and people. Accept the fact that we live in an imperfect world.

4. Take a lunch break. Try to get away from your desk or work area in body and mind, even if it's just for 15 or 20 minutes.
5. Focus on understanding rather than on being understood; on loving rather than on being loved.
6. Get up fifteen minutes earlier in the morning. The inevitable morning mishaps will be less stressful.

7. Prepare for the morning the evening before. Set the breakfast table, make lunches, put out the clothes you plan to wear, etc.

8. Don't rely on your memory. Write down appointment times, when to pick up the laundry, when library books are due, etc. ("The palest ink is better than the most retentive memory." - Old Chinese Proverb)

9. Do nothing which, after being done, leads you to tell a lie.

10. Make duplicates of all keys. Bury a house key in a secret spot in the garden and carry a duplicate car key in your wallet, apart from your key ring.
