    “To do the useful thing, to say the courageous thing, to contemplate the beautiful thing: that is enough for one man's life.”

    “Success is relative. It is what we make of the mess we have made of things.”

    ― T.S. Eliot

    Seven simple ways to cope with loneliness - CNN

    Practice small talk with cashiers and the other people you encounter throughout your day. When you go into your favorite coffee shop, make a simple comment about the weather or the music that's playing. Don't think of this as a time to start a long conversation, more as a way of making those brief, seemingly impersonal interactions a bit more friendly and inviting. It can decrease the feeling of loneliness as you're building your social network in other areas. Plus, if you practice this small talk in a variety of situations, it's easier to start a conversation with people you think you want to become friends with. It's a win-win.

    -- Darin Bergen, clinical psychologist

    ...It's been shown again and again that, as long as we are mutually kind to each other, we become friends with whoever we see most often. Proximity and repetition are key. So put yourself in situations where you see the same faces again and again: a dog park at the same time each morning, a weekly writer's workshop, or a co-working space.

    -- Ellen Hendriksen, clinical psychologist, author of How to Be Yourself

    Deal Better with Hard Times

    The research shows that:

    * People who spent time writing about a difficult event had better health and less depression. Writers' grades even improved, and they found jobs more quickly
    * People facing stress felt less depressed after problem-solving
    * People who often focus on the positives in their lives are less upset by difficult memories

    The Only 3 Pieces of Advice You Need

    Take one day at a time. Sounds simple, right? Not really... Try paying attention to how often you're thinking about what you did yesterday or what you're going to do tomorrow and you'll see that taking one day at a time is a lot easier said than done. Staying present and not stressing out about the future is hard -- but it's one of the best ways to live each day fully and as positively as possible. Whenever I find myself struggling to get a task done or whenever I start feeling overwhelmed about the future, I take a deep breath and say to myself, "Just one day at a time..."

    How to Cope With a Mentally Ill Spouse

    Self-care is not selfish, but a necessity if you have a spouse with mental health problems. If you don’t focus on your own health, you are at risk of being sucked into the vortex of the mental illness, putting your marriage at risk. Go back to the basics: get enough sleep, do some regular physical activity, eat well, spend time with friends or loved ones, and engage in activities or hobbies that you enjoy. Be very careful about getting to the point where you experience “caregiver fatigue” or burn-out. This is a common scenario when dealing with an ill or disabled partner. It is critical to take care of your own health.

    Re: Coping Tip of the Day

    “On some dimension or other, every event in life can be causing only one of two things: either it is good for you, or it is bringing up what you need to look at in order to create good for you. Evolution is win-win…life is self-correcting.”

    ― Deepak Chopra

    5 Tips for Coping with Regret

    When you regret something major, like having worked too much when your children were little, having stayed in a bad relationship too long, or having started late with retirement investing, try keeping in mind that regret is a universal human emotion, no matter what some people will claim about themselves. We're all imperfect. You don't need to create a silver lining out of every situation. Sometimes regret is just regret.

    -- Alice Boyes, Ph.D.
