There are three kinds of business going on for you everyday: "God's business"—things that happen in this world that are out of your control; "their business"—the choices other people make based on their life experiences so far; and "my business"—the choices that you make that ultimately shape your life.
When you feel even a bit of stress about something, put that issue through the above checklist. If it isn't your business, then let it go immediately-- it is out of your realm of control, so don't put any of your precious energy there! You'll need that energy to go towards what you really DO have control over: how you respond to what is going on around you, both inside and out.
Not one more wasted moment on gossip, ridicule, envy, self-pity, anger, guilt, arrogance, need, impatience, regret, manipulation, jealousy, fear, worry, and anxiety. These things literally block your capacity for feeling the good stuff that the highest part of you really wants to experience: understanding, truth, clarity, patience, devotion, gratitude, vulnerability, acceptance, wisdom, hope, forgiveness, empathy, discipline, perseverance, community, and peace.
Brain research shows that taking a time out with a round or two of EFT, some mindful breathing, a guided relaxation meditation, or a good physical workout will re-boot your brain and even your physical response to any of the above negative feelings. It may take a leap of faith if you are in a funk, but oftentimes just ONE of these activities is sufficient to prepare your mind and body for the joy and energy that is waiting for you on the other side!
