Look around and count your blessings

I know it sounds kinda cheesy but when you are feeling sorry for yourself, take a look around and I'm sure you'll see someone in worse straits. The reflect on the good you do have, and find an way to help someone less fortunate.
I was in acute rehab hospital and there were so many people with worse problems (like not being able to swallow) I really couldn't ever get down on why I was not functioning as before!

Scan/Shred/Recy
cle

It's really hard for me to throw away paperwork - always afraid I'll need it. I'm using a free pdf maker program on my pc and scanning documents, filling them on a portable hard drive, and then shredding the paperwork. Periodically I backup onto DVD's. I also recycle the shredded paperwork to get it out of the house.

Shop at Grocery Outlet

In our area there are stores calleld Grocery Outlet (Rainbow Grocery) that carry foods that may be close to expiration, food that the company is making label/ingredient changes in, etc. I think there are stores like this in almost every city. Ours do not carry dented/damaged and I don't recommend those foods - it's not worth it to take a chance with your health. But you might try something new from one of these discount stores you may decide you like!
