How to reduce Stress

A friend of mine frowarded this to me and i think it's nice to read this everynowandthen...

HOW TO REDUCE STRESS

1. Pray - this is the most effective thing to do for me. even if i find it hard to do especially when i have problems. for me, it's easier to pray to God when my life is going smoothly

2. Go to bed on time. - i dont have a specific time for bed. i betweent 10pm to 12am is ok.

3. Get up on time so you can start the day unrushed. - i am with HRD and i have been late everyday for the whole month of may. talk about being an example..

4. Say No, to projects that won't fit into your time schedule, or that will compromise your mental health.

5. Delegate tasks to capable others. - e kanino ko nga ito idedelegate? mag-1 lang ako?!! buti si apple helps me whenever i go on leave.

6. Simplify and unclutter your life.

7. Less is more. (Although one is often not enough, two are often too many.)

8. Allow extra time to do things and to get to places.

9. Pace yourself. Spread out big changes and difficult projects over time; don't lump the hard things all together.

10. Take one day at a time.

11. Separate worries from concerns. If a situation is a concern, find out what God would have you to do and let go of the anxiety. If you can't do anything about a situation, forget it.

12. Live within your budget; don't use credit cards for ordinary purchases. - does this include using EPS? wala akong credit card and i hope it stays that way. i have seen my loved ones get real bad credit which took them almost forever to pay

13. Have backups; an extra car key in your wallet, an extra house key buried in the garden, extra stamps, etc.,

14. K.M.S. (Keep Mouth Shut). This single piece of advice can prevent an enormous amount of trouble.

15. Do something for the Kid in You everyday. - this i'm sure i do all the time. like every hour?

16. Carry a Bible with you to read while waiting in line.

17. Get enough exercise. hmm.. i tried going to the gym almost a year ago and i just gained weight. probly because i stop for 2 weeks then work out again. then stop for 2 weeks.. aaargh!!

18. Eat right. - should start eating my veggies..

19. Get organized so everything has its place.

20. While driving, listen to a cd that can help improve your quality of life.

21. Write thoughts and inspirations down. - ang joural ko mga 75% venting. 25% lang ang happy thoughts.

22. Every day, find time to be alone. - this is my time along with God. i read PDL, or daily bread adn the bible. then that's when i pray a lot.

23. Having problems? Talk to God on the spot. Try to nip small problems in the bud. Don't wait until it's time to go to bed to try and pray.

24. Make friends with Godly people.

25. Keep a folder of favorite scriptures on hand.

26. Remember that the shortest bridge between despair and hope is often a good "Thank you, Jesus!"

27. Laugh.

28. Laugh some more!

29. Take your work seriously, but yourself not at all.

30. Develop a forgiving attitude (most people are doing the best they can). - mahirap 'to when you work with people who are feeling.

31. Be kind to unkind people (they probably need it the most). see comment for no. 30

32. Sit on your ego.

33. Talk less; listen more.

34. Slow down.

35. Remind yourself that you are not the general manager of the universe.

36. Every night before bed, think of one thing you're grateful for that you've never been grateful for before.

GOD HAS A WAY OF TURNING THINGS AROUND FOR YOU.

"If God is for us, who can be against us?" (Romans 8:31) AMEN!

hmmm.... been meaning to ask, but what's with the love-hate (or is it hate-hate) relationship between you and chu? your arguments are hilarious though :)

dessa girl said...

goldi: ur very welcome!

cherryflavoredampalaya(ang haba, pwede cfa nalang?heehee)nway, here's my comment: BUWAHAHAHAHA! for me, chu and i are just friends, really (with matching flipping of hair)!(pang showbiz) but then chu suddenly developed this huge crush on me and defense mech niya ang awayin ako.. tsk, masterchu! your longing for me is now becoming very obvious...

cherry-flavored ampalaya said...

cherry is fine. :)

ah. that explains a lot. the hostility, the constant calls for attention... frustration lang pala.

master CHU said...

ma'am dessa?!!! ang feeler mo talaga! napaka-feeler mo. hindi kita crush noh! ayaw ko sa mga babaeng masmalakas pa kumain sakin.

dessa girl said...

you are such a sisi when it comes to eating. talo pa kitaaaa! e anu ngayon kung malakas ako kumain? kahit naman kasing taba ko na yung baka, tingin mo sakin sexy gel pa rin! you dork! aminin mo na kasi na feeler ka rin pa magkasama tayo. kadirks ka! pweh!

master CHU said...

ummm...ma'am dessa, hindi talaga tayo pwede kasi magkasing laki tayo ng hita. hindi ako pumapatol sa mga babaeng pareho lang ang waist line sakin.

master CHU said...

Alam mo Cherry (naks! nakiki-cherry nako kay cherryflavoredampalaya) wag ka maniwala sa mga pinagsasabi ni ma'am dessa! siya ang may crsuh yata sakin eh. sipain ko yung elevated woman na yun eh! minsan kasi nahuhuli ko siya na ang lagkit ng tingin sakin! parang gusto niya ako ilibre ng date sa mga tingin niya. sobrang galit siya sakin ngayon kasi naiinis siya kasi may girlfriend nako. minsan nga nagpapatugtog pa yan ng malakas dito sa office ng "Bakit Ngayon Ka Lang" kasi kanta daw niya sakin yun!



bwahahahaha! ano?!!! ano ma'am ka dessa!!!!??!!! PANISS!!!!

cherry-flavored ampalaya said...

okay lang po un masterchu. na-explain ni nick na may "special condition" ka daw kaya ka ganyan.

naku, kung pareho kayo nag-file ng case of sexual harassment sa isa't isa e sino ang may matimbang na kaso?

master CHU said...

Ay oo nga noh. baka manalo si ma'am dessa kasi babae siya tapos HR pa siya. baka pag-nasa korte na kami ang kailangan lang niya gawin is magpaSUPER girl effect with kawawa eyes and sobbing 'till i can't-speak-anymore-effect tapos makukulong nako.

dessa girl said...

masterchu:buwahahahaha! wala ka pa rin chu. you are still in love with me, kahit anong def mech ang gamitin mo. (ok sa hirit ha: pannnniiiiissss!)

cherry: ako pwede magfile nun. si chu, hindi magfifile yun kasi gusto niya i-haras ko sha. e matino akong dalaga.. so he won't anything from me..my elevation comes with breeding

master CHU said...

saglit cherry(ok lang ba na cherry nalang tawag ko sayo?) ano sabi ni sir nick na special condition ko? pwera na lang sa paglalakad ko habang tulog at pagsamba sa sapatos alam ko normal naman ako.

cherry-flavored ampalaya said...

masterchu, ok lang po ung cherry.

Madami nasabi si Nick pero ito lang ang naalala ko.
1. hindi ka demented. normal ka lang daw. nabasa ko na kasi ung blog mo. dun ko nga nalaman ung hate-hate relationship ninyo ni Dessa (ung tungkol sa ipod).
2. na frustrated F4 wannabe ka daw (for example, ung pictures mo na "kasama" mo sila)
3. na nagmamadali ka lagi umuwi para makapanood ng Meteor Garden.
4. Dahil sa fan ka ng F4 sabi ko kay Nick na ipapakilala kita sa female friends ko na F4 fans pero sabi ni Nick huwag na lang at di raw niya mai-vouch ung safety ng friends ko if ever.
5. may fascination ka kay Sandara Park
6. may obsession ka kay Piolo
7. gusto mo mag artista

un lang po :)
