Good advice.....and I'll add:

 

Don't go grocery shopping when you're hungry....

Great advice!

And when giving out money, think with your head as much as your heart. I think I was a little too generous the other day, but I'll just let it go at that.

VERY good advice! 

Something happened recently that made me very angry. I typed up an email; saved it overrnight, and when I read it the next morning, my hair nearly stood on end. I couldn't delete it fast enough!

I do a slight variation on saving emails to read over. I actually send it to myself. Then I can see how I would feel if I got that message. It helps me get the tone I want.

I also think it helps to do something new.  I used to do a lot of ballroom dancing, but now my DH really doesn't want to do that much any more.  So we have taken up duplicate bridge.  It's something we do together and it's fun.
