Anticipate the unexpected.


ALWAYS set up contingency plans just in case.


Examples:


~ If one of us is delayed, we'll send a text message notifying the others.

~ If we get split up at the mall, here's the time and place we'll meet.

~ If you get locked out of the house, get the spare key from (the neighbor, the hiding place...).

~ In case of emergency or disaster, the family will meet at (designated place).

~ If I cannot be reached, here is my emergency contact:

~ Keep a change of clothes, a large towel and water in the car trunk.

~ Store emergency contact person in everyone's cell phone under "911."

~ Keep a collar with i.d. tag and phone number on pets.


Pre-planning for challenging times provides a sense of comfort and control, and reduces stress, worry and panic. With a little organization, you will be better equipped to deal with the demands of the moment.

This is the most recent installment in an ongoing series elaborating on 52 proven stress relievers identified by researchers at Texas Woman’s University.
