7 Tips for Surving the Recession Woes!

So I got reading a blog by a good person named Davey. It gives some amazing tips on life so here's what he got to say about the recession and his tips...

1. Don’t sweat the small stuff. I once read a book called “Don’t sweat the small stuff… and it’s all small stuff.” Look at the situations in your life through a larger lens. In the big scheme of your life, the world or the universe, our so called problems tend to dissipate.
2. View those so-called problems as opportunities. As the saying goes, when one door closes, another opens. Make yourself open to all possibilities - the door that opens may lead down an unfamiliar path.
3. Breathe. Things are always better when you take a few deep breaths.

4. Remember that happiness is the ultimate currency - not money. Use the recession to refocus on what really matters. We try to use money (unsuccessfully) to reach happiness. Money temporarily can increase happiness, but it’s a temporary high. To truly increase your base levels of happiness, spend time serving others and following your passions.
5. Be grateful. Instead of focusing on what you don’t have, take a few minutes to focus on what you do have. Your life is very rich.
6. Help others. Resist the urge to go into “survivor mode.” Reach out to others and help your fellow mankind. Whatever energy you put out to the world will return to you in like form.

7. Embrace the journey. Don’t resist the flow of life. Enjoy the ride - the ups and downs - this is a great adventure.
