“If it's not going to matter in 5 years, don't spend more than 5 minutes being upset about it.” 5 by 5 rule

I have a friend that once suggested putting a time limit on worry. He would give himself only so many minutes to worry over something and then he would let it go. Not a bad idea for dealing with all that can challenge our peace of mind. When small upsets occur, especially between partners, put a time limit to talk through it--the shorter the better, and then put it down. Small things have a way of getting bigger when we give too much time to thinking and talking about them.
