I've got too much stress in my life. Much of it is self-inflicted, but money and work and divorce and dying dogs and worrying about being stressed all contribute and I'm well aware I could drop dead at any minute*.
So, I've decided that instead of letting the world wind me up, I'm going to point and laugh instead. This means taking one or two practical steps to get my stress levels down and my life expectancy up. I'm possibly the most time-poor person on the planet, but that's probably because I never take a break from anything
- No clicking through Daily Mail links, no matter how outrageous the story- No getting wound up in traffic jams. Every other melon farmer on the road can get annoyed. I'll be in my car, listening to the Cocteau Twins and everything's peachy- Laugh more. Watch more comedy on TV and in the flesh. But don't laugh so hard that it hurts- Stop responding to texts from certain people. They know who they are- Take some time off- Try not to die
I'm going to call this Operation Try Not To Die. I shall keep you informed, regularly, by not dying.
* I'm not going to drop dead at any minu-aaaaarghhh**
** Only joking
