Worry

Worry is like sitting in a rocking chair. It will give you something to do, but it won’t get you anywhere.
Vance Havner

Little minds have little worries. Big minds have no room for worries.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

I never want to dwell on spilled milk or worry about something that’s not life threatening.
Nick Price

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Philippians 4:6

Worry distorts our thinking, disrupts our work, disquiets our soul, disturbs our body, disfigures our face. It destroys our friends, demoralizes our life, defeats our faith and debilitates our energy.
William Ward

Time for Yourself

For ongoing optimal energy, invest in something you love every day. Even a few minutes of pure bliss can keep you uplifted. Let’s face it, you’ll never find the time to do as you wish; you have to make the time – maybe in little chunks.
Suzanne Zoglio

Pampering yourself is a requirement for peace and happiness.
Susyn Reeve

Schedule a day of pampering. You need time to yourself to relax, refresh and rejuvenate. Do what you love, whether it’s a manicure or a massage or a bike ride or a round of golf. The money invested is well worth the decreased stress level you will experience.
Laura Stack

You need regular time to be alone, to reflect, to sit quietly. You also need time to talk privately with your spouse or friends. For a short break, go to the bedroom for a nap or soak in the tub. A fifteen-minute time-out can revitalize you.
Judy Ford

There are a lot of burned-out moms losing the joy of being a parent because they feel guilty about taking the time to receive. Moms feel like they are supposed to sacrifice everything for their families, and I understand that point of view. But, at the same time, if you’re not taking time to receive – body, soul and spirit – eventually you won’t have anything more to give.

Worry

Life follows the 95/5 rule. Ninety-five percent of what we worry about will never happen. And 95 percent of the time, if it does happen, the anticipation has been far worse than the reality.
Roger Crawford

Every morning I spend fifteen minutes filling my mind full of God, so there’s no room left for worry thoughts.
Howard Christy

I try to only worry about things I have control over.
Steve Nash

All worry is caused by calculating without God.
Oswald Chambers

Work doesn’t make a person tired, worry does. It saps your energy and attacks your dreams. It tries to make you believe you can’t succeed when success is almost within your grasp. Win over worry, and you’ll find that victory is at hand.
John Maxwell

Convictions

The men who succeed best in public life are those who take the risk of standing by their own convictions.
James Garfield

Never for the sake of peace and quiet, deny your own experience and convictions.
Dag Hammarskjöld

People of strong convictions are winners.
Bill Johnson

The surest way not to become tired is to lose yourself in something in which you have a profound conviction. You only lose energy when life becomes dull in your mind.
Norman Vincent Peale

Leadership implies movement toward something, and convictions provide that direction. If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.
Don Shula

Benefits of Exercise

When I’m low on energy, exercise recharges me. It also relieves stress. A vigorous workout restores perspective and helps me release concerns that had seemed deserving of worry.
Tom Gegax

People who exercise regularly have fewer illnesses.
Bernie Siegel

Refresh that part of you that is most wearied. If your life is sedentary, exercise the body; if stirring and active, recreate your mind.
Thomas Fuller

Those who think they don’t have time for exercise will sooner or later have to find time for illness.
Edward Stanley

When our minds race so rapidly that we don’t know which way is up, it often helps to get physical. It may seem ironic, but it works. As you focus your energy on a physical task, the traffic in your mind will begin to thin out.
Dr. Suzanne Zoglio
