The 10 Commandments for Reducing Stress

Dear Reader

These 10 commandments were created by one of Dr Sarah Myhill’s CFS patients Sylvia Waites,  I thought you might like them. Once I started following them life became a lot easier. So thanks Sylvia.

  1. Thou shalt not be perfect or try to be.
  2. Thou shalt not try to be all things to all people.
  3. Thou shalt leave things undone that ought to be done.
  4. Thou shalt not spread thyself too thin.
  5. Thou shalt learn to say “NO”.
  6. Thou shalt schedule time for thyself, and for thy supporting network.
  7. Thou shalt switch off and do nothing regularly.
  8. Thou shalt be boring, untidy, inelegant and unattractive at times.
  9. Thou shalt not even feel guilty.
  10. Thou shalt not be thine own worst enemy, but thine own best friend.
