Beware of the Barrenness of a Busy Life - Richard Innes

Perpetual activity is one of the great hang-ups of contemporary society. And success, in Western culture at least, is almost without exception defined in terms of one's performance and achievements. That is, what one does. Rarely, if ever, is it defined in terms of an individual's growth and maturity.

An artist's success is judged on the basis of his or her talents and performances, never on the person. A businessman's success is measured by the size of his company and bank balance, never on how his family feels toward him. His bleeding ulcers or impaired relationships with his children simply are not seen.

There's nothing wrong with activity of itself. Not at all. To be mentally healthy, every person needs not only a happy family life, but also worthwhile interests of work into which he or she can put his or her heart. The greatest teacher of all times, Jesus Christ, forever sanctioned work in the carpenter's shop. And the greatest book ever written, the Bible, says that "if a man doesn't work, he shouldn't eat."

8 Strategies to Break Compulsive Spending - Dr. Linda Mintle

If you need help with compulsive spending, try applying these strategies to help break the cycle:

Be Honest. Admit you have a problem.

Ditch the card. Get rid of your credit cards and pay with cash or check only. Hide one card for emergency uses only. You may want a spouse or trusted friend to keep this card.

Lists. Make a list and only buy what is on the list. No exceptions.

Avoid deals. Avoid sales and discount places that give “a deal”

Watch out for the Tv and Internet. Avoid shopping channels on TV and catalogue and Internet orders.

Substitute. Substitute another behavior for the urge to shop, e.g., walk, read, meditate or pray.
