When there are situations that occur that are out of our control I find it helpful to deal with my internal stress by journaling in a big old notebook and writing my thoughts to get my emotions out and under control. I also find that I can come to a decision when it is necessary for me to take action about the stress. Journaling helps me to see things more clearly and to come to a conclusion as to how to handle it. This method works and beats eating everything in the refrigerator!
All that is needed is a big old notebook and if you have nosy roommates or relatives a good shredder.

Once a week, for only 15 minutes, you can effectively plan out your week and feel ahead of the game!
Every week, on Sunday nights, I spend 15 minutes doing my weekly review. I look at everything I got done or got added to my "to do" list from last week and figure out how everything is going to get done over the next 7 days. I include all work and personal stuff. I feel great and connected!
