We already know most if not all of the following. But they are what we call them--reminders.
I received this is my inbox today…. it could not have come at a better time. I was just thinking that my plate is way too full, and whether or not to drop an item from my schedule. In shaa Allah, I now will. I need to do all my endeavors in a good way, and I can’t do that the way things are. Jazackallah khair to the dear beautiful sis, who passed this great reminder on. May it do the same for all of you….

A wise person once said: ‘Never borrow from the future. If you worry about what may happen tomorrow and it doesn’t happen, you have worried in vain. Even if it does happen, you have to worry twice.’

1. Pray to Allah.

2. Go to bed early.

3. Get up before Fajr, so you can start the day unrushed.

4. Say No to projects that won’t fit into your time schedule, or that will compromise your mental health.

5. Delegate tasks to capable others.

6. Simplify and de-clutter your life.

7. Less is more. Quality & not Quantity.

9. Pace yourself. Spread out big changes and difficult projects over time; don’t lump the hard things all together.

10. Take one day at a time.

11. Separate worries from concerns . If a situation is a concern, find out what Allah would have you do and let go of the anxiety .. If you can’t do anything about a situation, make duaa.

12. Live within your budget.

13. Have backups; an extra car key with a nearby friend, an extra house key with a neighbour, etc.

14. K.M.S. (Keep Mouth Shut).. This single piece of advice can prevent an enormous amount of trouble.

24. Make friends with sincere, Allah-conscious people.

25. Keep a folder of favorite aayats & ahaadeeth on hand.

26. Remember that the shortest bridge between despair and hope is often a heartfelt ‘Thank you, O Allah .’

27. Smile:)
