Grocery shopping

Eat before you go to the grocery. If you're not really hungry you will be less likely to want to put everything you see into your cart. Shopping on an empty stomach makes everything look tempting!

Surround Yourself to Reduce Stress

I have a very stressful job, so I make sure that my office is full of beautiful things to look at. Calming landscapes and pictures of the ones I love help me manage my stress when it gets to be too much.

Squeeze in a few more steps...

Since I work in an office and sit at a desk all day sometimes it can be really hard to hit 10,000 steps on my pedometer. In an effort to squeeze in a few more steps I started making more trips to the printer. When I have to print up multiple documents I walk to the printer after I print each one. Not only do a get more steps in each day, but we don't have 4 people trying to figure out who printed what!

Improving sleep quality

I've developed a way to break bad sleeping habits (specifically falling asleep on the couch glued to the "boob tube") - I work on preparing the body for traditional sleep ahead of time - I have found that putting as many articles that I can that I associate with active, wakeful night life away from sight early in the evening, and prepare the bed area for arrival (slippers and robe beside bed, bed clothes at the ready).......this has made a great difference!

Do One Thing, Do it Well - Cynthia Heald

The author foused on this at a recent women's event highlighting simplicity. You can gracefully say no because your focus is on one important activity. You are honored to be asked, but no, not at this time. Another point, never just automatically say yes. Pray, then get back with a prayed out, thought out response.

Stress Reliever

I love my job but work can be pretty stressful so I try to find ways to alleviate the stress before I even get to the office. I do this by sitting up as straight as I can in my car - having good posture - and I practice deep breathing for about five minutes. It's pretty basic but I start out my morning feeling relaxed and calm.

take the stairs at work

If there are stairs at work, take them. If you sit all day, take a break and walk a few flights of stairs.
