This time of year has everyone rushing around or stressing about what they have to do. Stress is put on people to choose between bills or gifts for the children, which is a shame. We need to get back to what Christmas is about the birth of our Lord and we won't be so stressed. Spend time with family, have a nice dinner, go to church and enjoy Christmas without the stress. Do something for the elderly or lonely. Love life, be happy and stay calm

I used to procrastinate on EVERYTHING. But I learned in college, that the rush from the original assignment was just as adrenaline pumping as the last-minute adrenaline rush - So if something needs to get done - I hang on to that initial rush and do it before the rush runs out! Now, if it's something mundane I can't do right away, I write it down on a short list and add something exciting to it, like "buy toothpaste AND get a new magazine." It's a little Pavlovian but it works! 224
I always start a project early and then let myself relax until the last few days and rush rush rush to get it done. I've been doing the same thing with my exercise habits. Stay motivated and don't become a procrastinator!
