Thursday’s 13: 3 steps and 10 Commandments

Easy as A, B, C . . . from BB

Do you feel Life has become the proverbial rat‑race?  Heed Valorie Burton’s good advice in How Did I Get So Busy?:

  1. Take control of your schedule
  2. Create room to breathe
  3. Make time for people and activities that matter most

And the 10 Burton Commandments of Self‑Care:

  1. Use all your vacation time every year
  2. Commit time off solely to nonwork‑related activities
  3. Take your rest seriously
  4. Have fun at least once a week
  5. Eat regularly, preferably sitting down
  6. Exercise regularly, preferably standing up
  7. Be fruitful and productive, not busy
  8. Use technology to gain time, not consume it
  9. Connect heart‑to‑heart with the people who matter
  10. Be led by the Spirit

See you day‑after‑tomorrow for Saturday’s Softcover!

    Sure—I’d be happy to let you use it. Just be sure to credit the original author/book . . . and I wouldn’t mind a mention of The ABC Writers Guild either. 🙂
