Relax.

These are suggestions, not commandments.

I don't obsess over them, any more than I obsess over the multiplicitous suggestions in Martha Stewart Living (she doesn't do all of them either, she has a staff).

Nobody has time to do ALL the stuff people suggest, not even a convent full of nuns with all the time in eternity on their hands.

So do what you like, what speaks to you, and leave the rest. That's the difference between us and the Pharisees who sat in the seat of Moses.
