Step 1 -- What triggers my stress? I made a list of the top 5 things that gave me stress.
Dinner: I stressed to much about what to make for dinner each night. So once a week I plan out a menu, write it on the calendar and shop once a week for the food.
Money: my new goal is to be more frugal. We sat down as a family and found ten ways to be more conservative with our money.
My health: I now eat right, exercise and have fun.
Clutter: I can't stand to have "stuff" everywhere. So once a month I take a day to purge. Now I'm finding things I can re-sell & donate. This also helps with the money issue.
Step 2 -- Get rid of the things that gave me stress.
Step 3 -- If I couldn't get rid of the things that gave me stress I made a list of the top 5 things that could take away the stress.

Life is too short to spend it being stressed and unhappy! Find the things that make you happy and Just Do It!
