Along with Your 4 for More, we also recommend:

·      Stress management techniques daily and as needed.

·      Sleep ~7½ hours a night.

·      Avoid caffeine after 2 PM (or for about 8 hours before going to bed).  Cut back if you are anxious or jittery!

·      Minimize or eliminate alcohol (none at bedtime). Partake for celebrations only; never use to self medicate or when sad!

·      Build loving relationships! (volunteer, attend church, etc.)

·      Do this with a buddy!


For step by step application of these principles, work through the modules on your own, or join us at
