Survival Tips - Tip #1. Eliminating or reducing social media will reduce some of the stress you take in. Work responsibilities, family requirements and bills are enough for most people. Adding social media sites to your daily routine can surely take you into information overload.

Social media can make it more difficult to distinguish between the meaningful relationships developed through person to person, face to face to contact versus those developed anonymously online. The numerous casual relationships formed through social media are many times ego centered interactions that can be quite intoxicating.

But by focusing so much of our time and spiritual energy on these less meaningful relationships, our most important connections will often weaken. While social media does serve a purpose in delivering a message to a large number of people at one time, it can create a false sense of social relationship security. Don’t underestimate the power of face to face contact, a hug and a long genuine conversation.

Survival Tips - Tip #2. Set time for prayer and meditation.  A prayer a day places the soul at rest. Take time for solitude and peace. Prayer can produce physical and spiritual healing. Prayer equips us with the spiritual power to overcome those things that cause guilt, resentment and depression.

Prayer connects you with the Most High God! When you get on your knees for prayer, be ready to receive a magnificent download. Prayer takes practice, so be patient. It is a daily routine that improves as you stick with it. Matthew 7:7 says “Ask, and it will be given to you seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you."

Survival Tips - Tip #3. Surround yourself with positive people that provide balance. Surround yourself with people that are healthy in mind, body and soul. People are just like your body. When you only address your physical body your intellect and spirit suffers. 

When you fail to take care of your body you become ridden with disease, obesity and other health issues.  When you fail to feed your spirit you cannot withstand the obstacles of life.

You must also have balance among your friends. Some are strong in body, others intelligent, and others are healthy in spirit. Keep your friends in balance so that you can sharpen one another. A biblical proverb says, "As iron sharpens iron, brother and sister sharpen each other."
