You are most welcome. I'm constantly looking on the web and in books for things to post here and for me to learn for my own needs. I'm just doubly blessed in that I learn and can pass it on so you too can learn. Talk about a double portion of blessing!!!

I don't know if you all will believe me, but I get as much out of researching for these items as you get out of me posting them. :) It's fun for me because I love psychology/self-help. And I've always wanted to help people so it is fulfilling a dream too. :)

Huggles,
Sheri

You are all welcome to use it. It is not my own work. When you see POSTED BY SHERI, it means I'm not the original author. I get these in emails from other people.
When you see ©Sheri L. Adams, you know it is MY WORK. :)

I'm very glad you have found it helpful!

That's an amazing list. Common sense, we usually forget, but amazing, none-the-less.

50 Simple Ways To Reduce Stress at Home and at Work

1. Breathe, when you feel tense, take 10 slow, deep breaths in through your nose, out through your mouth.

2. Touch, hug someone, hold hands, stroke a pet, make non-s*xual physical contact with people, brush your hair.

3. Communicate, be honest with your Self and others. Ask for what you want. Express your true feelings when they occur.

4. Drink at least eight, 8 oz. glasses of good water a day. This flushes toxins out of our body.

5. See the humor in life. Laugh at your self and life. Have fun and "play" at life.

6. Meditation 15 minutes a day. Take time to relax, sit, breathe deeply, quiet your mind. Record In-sights and dreams in a journal.

7. Be Human. Let up on yourself. Forgive your self and others. Slow down and enjoy being alive.

8. Communicate with friends. Spend time with each other. Share the good stuff.

9. Hug three people each day. Relax and enjoy the feeling of being loved.

10. Quit worrying about the Future. Concentrate on what you can do NOW.

11. Make a TO DO list of your agreements for each month. Schedule both play time and free time, and do both activities.

12. Write it down. Make notes to yourself. Make a list. Write special dates down on your calendar. Put it on tape.

13. Say "NO" Allow yourself to say "NO" to some requests. Don't over commit yourself. Put yourself first; say YES to you.

14. Clean it up Recycle old junk and papers. Clean your physical and mental house of old garbage.

15. Wear comfortable, clean clothes, that make you feel good about yourself.

16. Avoid doing anything to excess, even having fun.

18. Express and receive love as often as possible to yourself and others.

19. You always have choices in life. Re-Order your priorities. If you are not happy, choose some- thing new.

20. Express your anger to the person involved the moment it's experienced.

21. Be honest with yourself con- cerning your fears. Ask for more information or assistance.

22. Crying is nature's way of releasing toxins from the body, releasing stress, or expressing joy.

23. Change is constant. You can choose to change your choice anytime you want to do so.

24. Trust your Self, and value your needs and choices. Follow your own intuition.

25. Live in the moment. Stop fanta- sizing about "What If ". Choose from what IS available, Now.

26. Feel good about yourself and your choices in life. Value what you Believe in. Walk your Talk.

27. Forgive yourself and others. Withholding Love does not nur- ture relationships.

28. When you do not love yourself first, you can not be satisfied by loving and doing for others.

29. Make a commitment to expand your Spiritual, Mental, Emotional, and Physical well-being.

30. Your most valuable and limited resource is your time. Value it, so others will.

31. Obtain a written job description from your boss. Make any changes needed to keep your agreements.

32. Take pride in your work. You only get One First Impression!

33. Be responsible for your work. Do your best with every opportunity.

34. Only do your job. Do not get conned into permanently assuming another person's job responsibilities.

35. Do not play office politics. Be open and above board in all your relationships. Honor your Integrity.

36. Do not listen to, encourage, or spread gossip. It damages your credibility and others.

37. Talk with your co-workers about how to work together to solve problems.

38. Don't be a "fix it " person for people's problems.

39. When you have a problem, go to the person who can solve that specific problem. Ask questions.

40. Ask questions. When you are not sure, or don't know, get information before taking action.

41. Contribute Become a solution provider for problems, not just a problem discoverer.

42. Leave work. When you go home, Go Home ! Work can be a part of your life, not your whole life.

43. Put your family, career, and Self in perspective; know which is most important and nourish it.

44. Value your emotions. Feel your feelings. Allow yourself to express them appropriately as they occur.

45. Express your anger directly with clarity. Indirect or covert anger only prolongs distress and distrust.

46. When asked, always tell the whole truth to yourself and to others.

47. Respect your own ideas, and have respect for other people's feelings, ideas, and choices.

48. Exercise, walk, stretch, move about. Staying physically fit keeps you mentally fit, emotionally calm, and at peace.

49. Eat healthy foods and chew well. Don't eat just because you are bored, unhappy, or angry.

50. Experience and express joy at being alive, at having choices, and at the opportunity to explore loving relationships.
