Before you buy anything take a few moments off and ask yourself.  Is it something that I WANT or is it something which I NEED?

If it’s something that you WANT but don’t NEED then don’t buy it! To determine whether it is something which you NEED ask yourself another question. Can I do without it for a day, week, month, or year? If you can do without it for a week, month, or year then don’t buy it!

If you do need it then take a few moments off and ask yourself. Is it the best price for the product or can I get a better value at a cheaper price elsewhere? Being aware of how much that you are actually paying for something is good to keep track of because your mind will get accustomed to working with numbers in your head which are very important when making purchasing decisions.

Food is the only purchase where quality is more important than a cheap price because your health will suffer in the long duration if you eat unhealthy, over processed, sugar enriched foods and drinks. Buying food and household items in bulk will be a cheaper alternative than buying small portions or amounts.

Your best bet is to buy as much certified organic food as you can afford and if you are addicted to fast food then at least patronize more than one fast food outlet and get a variety of junk food in your diet.

Of course the smartest thing to do would be to patronize a Chipotle Mexican Grill fast food restaurant where some of the food is organic.

Few enjoy keeping track of their spending figures or don’t know how to BUDGET their money. Ultimately if you want to truly control your spending habits with CERTAINTY then you should take the time out to Google or Bing budgeting and learn how to do it. If you have a calculator and basic adding and subtracting skills then about a half hour a month is all that you will need to track your spending accurately.


With the exception of food purchases, unless it is food or drink impulse buying at a gas station, ask yourself do I WANT it or NEED it? If you don’t NEED it then don’t buy it. Get the cheapest price by trying to memorize approximate costs and buy in bulk where possible. To completely cure yourself of impulsive spending learn to budget your money and stick to your spending limits on a weekly, biweekly, or monthly basis!!!!!!

Working too feverishly, having too much to do, making many mistakes, having many serious problems in life, having too much responsibility, too much worrying, and having unhappy relationships can all cause unhealthy stress levels.

Job stress can sometimes be decreased by trying to schedule your time better and spending more time on important priorities and spending less time on relatively unimportant priorities. Taking some time out to plan ahead and work in a controlled orderly way is much better than working relatively randomly and chaotically which is what stress frequently originates from.

You relieve stress by taking some time out to do stressless things or by living more responsibly. If responsible living and working does not relieve severe stress on the job or in family life then the only option may be to change to a less stressful job or to get a divorce.

Daily stress relief may mean taking some time off to meditate, think about happy things, exercise, a bath, a massage, listening to music, or viewing a movie, video, or the TV. Getting enough sleep is frequently priority number two after eating and drinking healthy. To handle stress optimally you need to recharge your body with good food and good sleep on almost a daily basis.

If humans in your life are causing you stress then try to avoid them as much as is possible or read up on relationship books or articles which make suggestions on how to improve your relationship skills. Change your philosophy from “everything that you do annoys me” to “most of the things that you do don’t affect or phase me”.

Stress: n. (personal and/or human(s) demand(s)) and/or (environmental demand(s) and/or pressures) which affect an organism’s complete reaction(s)

There are good and bad friends, very close friends, friends, and casual friends and all of them need a different approach.

The best friends are close friends with whom you can be honest, sincere, and develop dependable trusting relationships on a level of intimacy bordering on marriage. You frequently have frequent interaction with close friends.

Regular friends are humans with which you don’t interact so frequently and may not share your intimate secrets with for fear of public embarrassment or criticism.

Casual friends are humans with which you interact with on the job or see publicly but don’t know too much about.

If you and your friends are having lousy lives filled with failure, pessimism, and bad addictive lifestyles then it is time that you stopped the downward spiral, drop those bad friendships, and start looking for new or better ones.  Misery loves company and if you are miserable chances are that you have some miserable friends which trap you into your dysfunctional lifestyle.

If you are optimistic, happy, honest, sincere, and dependable then your chances of getting good friends who will trust, respect, and maybe even admire you will increase.

It is a fact of life that most of the best friends are humans around your own age, are of the same sex, have the same educational level, are in the same profession, have the same common interests, have similar incomes, and are single or married just like you.

 If you are unemployed or working at minimum wage, have a bad education, and have bad communication skills then don’t expect your friends to be wealthy, educated, with family, and interested in spending some of their time, energy, and money on you.

The truth is that good friendships frequently have many things in common and great differences in age or lifestyle are frequently not compatible.

Finally if you are unhappy, pessimistic, and unemployed with shitty friends then drop your shitty friends, get your shit together by Googling about your problems or getting professional advice, and only then start looking for new friends if you feel that you want them. Sometimes staying single without friends is the smartest thing to do until your job life and shitty feelings improve.
