"Stress is an ignorant state. It believes that everything is an emergency. Nothing is that important."
Natalie Goldberg

"Nothing is permanent in this wicked world - not even our troubles."
Charlie Chaplin

"To avoid stress means to recognize how it starts. If you are your own worst enemy, then know what not to do. If there is an external cause, work to eliminate it if you can. If you are unable to eliminate the cause, that is, it is something beyond what you can influence or control, either take a completely new tack or strategy to place it in a secondary role in your life, or accept it for what it is and quit fretting over it because the more you think about it, the bigger you are giving it a voice in your life."
Theodore W. Higgingsworth

"No matter how much pressure you feel at work, if you could find ways to relax for at least five minutes every hour, you'd be more productive."
Dr. Joyce Brothers


Quotes to reflect on:

Oprah Winfrey

"Do not brood over your past mistakes and failures as this will only fill your mind with grief, regret and depression. Do not repeat them in the future."
Swami Sivananda

"This art of resting the mind and the power of dismissing from it all care and worry is probably one of the secrets of energy in our great men."
Captain J. A. Hadfield

"What's the use of worrying? It never was worthwhile."
George Asaf

"Laugh at yourself and at life. Not in the spirit of derision or whining self-pity, but as a remedy, a miracle drug, that will ease your pain, cure your depression, and help you to put in perspective that seemingly terrible defeat and worry with laughter at your predicaments, thus freeing your mind to think clearly toward the solution that is certain to come. Never take yourself too seriously."
Og Mandino
