Glass half full

I tend to be a glass half full kind of person. When a situation arises that I am not happy about, I ask myself if there is something I can do to change it. If there is, then I take action. If there is not, then I move on and be happy that it is over.

Be accountable to yourself

I keep a list of 6 goals on a chart next to my bed. Every night before I turn out the light, I check off what I have done each day. The idea is that after 21 days of continually doing something, it will become part of your normal routine.

One time only

In a time management course that I took my first semester of college, we were taught to only touch it once. When the bill comes in, pay it now. When the children bring homes notices that need your signature, sign it now. RSVP as soon as you get the invitation. And so forth. A great time saver!

Food preparation

I bought some strawberries a few days ago and as soon as we got home, my daughter washed them and put them in a bowl. If the fruit and vegies are all prepared, it is just as easy to grab them instead of candy or other sweets.

Relax

I never let traffic bother me, but recently I started taking a class in mind and body healing and one of the things we have to do is listen to mediations on a CD. Now I keep the CD in the car and when people start honking, I just listen to the relaxing voice on my CD.
