M«k- ng new friendships and finding Ime for old ones add variety and tchness to the "dallyness" of liv- ng. To do less worrying over nonessentials. It's amazing how much you can cut down on your worry- ng If you refuse lo get In * slew over problems Ihat aren't actually important, or about on» that you can't do anything about «ny- how. To cultivate a serene, unhurried way of meeting each day's demands. Each day only has so many hours in which you can do only so much. So go through it at an even pace Instead of hurrying and rushing yourself Into exhaustion only to find that at Ihe, end of Ihe day you stllV haven't *tcom polished all you meanl to do. Give Some Time To Your Family To make a happier home. This Istv' a matter' of working harder It may even b* « question of not working quite so hard, so that you have time for your husband and children, time to listen and praise, to laugh and play, to make your love for your family deeply felt by all it-5 members. To talk less and do more. The more about the things we intend to do the less likely we are to ever get at them. To be more charitable and helpful to other women. Women blame most of the troubles and unhappi- riess on men—but a lot of most women's discontent Is caused by other women. To like your home as it Vs. vn- •;ad of being diwatisfied with It because it doesn't have this or that improvement or isn't as fancy as some other woman's.
