The 10 Commandments for Reducing Stress

As hard as others can be on us, we are too often harder on ourselves...


Thou shalt NOT be perfect, nor even try to be.

Thou shalt NOT try to be all things to all people.

Thou shalt leave things undone that ought to be done.

Thou shalt NOT spread thyself too thin.

Thou shalt learn to say 'No'.

Thou shalt schedule time for thyself, and thy supportive network.

Thou shalt switch off and do nothing regularly.

Thou shalt be boring, untidy, inelegant and unattractive at times.

Thou shalt NOT even feel guilty!

Especially, thou shalt NOT be thine own worst enemy, but be thy best friend.
