Quick Stress Tips

Stop Passing Judgment

When you honk at bad drivers, get annoyed at the people who talk in the movies, or feel frustrated when a coworker interrupts, YOU are the one who suffers - NOT the person who has committed the infraction. So whenever you hear yourself thinking like a judge and jury - banish these negative thoughts from the courtroom of your mind - and you'll banish an enormous amount of stress too.
