    Mindfulness and breathing exercises are very helpful to me, too.  

    Unfortunately, I can't usually make use of them until I'm starting to get better.  When I'm down in the pit, nothing seems to help.

    I was raised Catholic, and have an affinity for the rosary.  I recently bought a new one, and my new ritual is to use each bead to thank God, Goddess, Allah, Yahweh, Yeshua, Mary, Buddha, Confucius, for every big and small good thing in my life.  I just say one thank-you per bead.  

    I can usually do this even when I'm feeling antsy.

    I have learned that success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed. ~~ Booker T. Washington
