Tips for When Things are Getting you Down or Making you Mad
Set and achieve attainable short-term ideals / goals. You will not be so frustrated
Don't let the “small stuff” get to you. Especially if it will not matter a short time from now
Get up, Get Dressed and Show up. In particular get up at the same time each day, preferably early, to improve your circadian rhythms
When you wake up in the morning, say “Today, my purpose is to _____(fill in the blank)”
"Today, I will behave as if this is the day I will be remembered" - Dr. Seuss
“Life is what happens while you're making other plans”. Live in the present, don't dwell on past negativity, or worry about the future
It isn't the experience of TODAY that drives men mad. It is the remorse of what happened YESTERDAY and fear of what TOMORROW might bring.
What other people think of you is none of YOUR business. Keep control of your own thinking and activities. Also - you don't need other's approval to follow the desires of your heart - don't limit your dreams
Forgive everyone for everything (i.e. let go of grudges) and say positive things about others. Enhances YOUR positive attitude
Don't compare your life with others
You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree
Don't make excuses. Face up to and deal with your problems, regarding them more as challenges to overcome with ingenuity and perseverence
Spend more time with people over the age of 70 and under 6. Learn from the wisdom of the elderly and capture some of the young's inhibitions
Look for opportunites to extend kindnesses. This has the dual effect of making you feel good and the tendency for kindness to be paid forward
Express gratitude for the positive things you have
Relationships are important. Put a high priority on spending quality time with family and friends; include positive-minded friends, since “Misery loves company” and unhappy people can drag you down if you don't keep a balance by spending time with happier people
Be honest. A guilty conscience weighs you down and causes you to be dissatisfied and unhappy with yourself
Some things can't be changed and must eventually be accepted. Apply your energy to those things that can be positively changed
Time Heals almost Everything
Think less about yourself.
"Humility is not thinking less of yourself, but thinking of yourself less"
- C.S. Lewis
“Tools” for a peaceful life
Hormonal imbalance is often involved in chronic emotional states. Neurotransmitters and hormones can be re-balanced by applying safe, time-tested and effective CES. E.g. Use the SOTA Bio-Tuner 20 minutes per day for 3 weeks.
Meridian Tapping Technique (MTT)
MTT is used for almost everything -addiction, shame, CFS, Diabetes, Post traumatic Stress disorder, weight loss, performance, sexual drive, self acceptance and love, vision (75% improvement), fears, diverticulitis, insomnia, headache . . .
There is strong evidential feedback supporting a theory that emotional problems are not in fact a “head”problem, but rather an electrical blockage in our body's communication pathways i.e. the extra cellular matrix(sometimes called the meridians). MTT is an unbelievably simple, short sequence of actions and thoughts, designed to identify and unblock electrical pathways blocked by emotional or physical trauma. You would be remiss not to at least give it a shot. Many, including this writer, claim positive results.

Chiropractic locates and removes a powerful "disconnection" in your body. Called subluxation (the vertebral subluxation complex), this physical condition interferes with the flow of energy and information in your body.
Attention is focused on breathing and/or on a word, phrase or sound (mantra), leading to a more relaxed body and calmer mind. Doctors at the Mayo Clinic use meditation to treat patients with anxiety and high blood pressure and to help people quit smoking without medication.
An analysis of 20 studies on meditation found that this treatment could help patients cope with epilepsy, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), menopausal symptoms, autoimmune disease, and anxiety during cancer treatment.
The patient is led into a state of deep relaxation and focused attention by either a hypnotherapist or an instructional audio (self-hypnosis) - verbal suggestions are made to help relieve anxiety, pain, tension headaches and insomnia.
Doctors at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York Cityanalyzed 20 studies on hypnosis and surgical patients. In 89% of cases, surgical patients who were hypnotized had less pain, used less pain medication and recovered faster.
Patients imagine a beautiful, soothing environment. E.g. a warm beach. Guided imagery, also referred to as visualization, helps reduce anxiety in patients who become claustrophobic during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, who are having outpatient surgery without general anesthesia or who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening disease, such as cancer.
In a study conducted at the University of Akronin Ohio, a group of 53 women receiving radiation therapy for breast cancer either listened to guided imagery tapes once a day or did not. The women listening to the tapes felt more comfortable and less anxious, particularly during the first three weeks of treatment.
