March 1, 2004 Regular News Stresslines: Ten ways to feel better about life Ten ways to feel better about life Dr. Karen D. Unger 1. Have reasonable expectations for yourself.2. Allow your self rating of your daily performance to just be “good enough.” Save the perfection standard for another day when you’re real old.3. Give yourself a compliment each day; it doesn’t cost anything and the benefits are great.4. When you feel overwhelmed, try to get another perspective. Ask yourself: How would someone from a war-torn country view my problem? Stop catastrophizing; it really is not helpful.5. Stop criticizing yourself physically, and financially. Do you really expect to look like a movie star, and earn $800K per week? Re-read number 1.6. Remember, bad stuff happens to everyone all the time. Life—it’s not a conspiracy against you.7. Tell yourself: “Know what? You’re doing OK.”8. Enjoy your pets — it decreases blood pressure and stress.9. Remove “should” from your vocabulary (Bet you can’t do it for a whole week).10. Get yourself an ice cream cone this week because you were real good. Dr. Karen D. Unger has a private counseling, and psychotherapy practice in Valrico and may be reached at (813) 684-1404 or at Kunger@tampabay.rr.com.
