So you might need some caffeine, beer, vodka, wine - in fact any alcohol will do - to wind down after a long day in the office. To tell you the truth, I'm rather partial to a drink after work myself although I try not to overdo it - there's nothing worse than making a fool of yourself whilst under the influence. No, dear reader, please don't put yourself through imagining exactly what sort of foolhardiness I may get up to, you won't be able to sleep at night!

So how do people cope with the mundane side to life when they're under pressure? Is there a place for 'mind over matter'? Could something be invented for the more enlightened, like smelling salts for the stressed? Granted, Yoga and Zen work and have their place but you really wouldn't want to do your Yoga moves walking down the street!

There's no doubt that humor (and laughter) is the best tonic, no matter where you are. Let's face it, how many people do you know that pay a good portion of their weekly wage on a ticket to go and see a comedian? Ok, so you may have a ‘little accident' if you laugh too hard but its well worth it. After all, at least you can laugh about it if your mind is already in a good place, rather than be embarrassed and angry at yourself with a clouded perception. Woody Allen has, in his own inimitable style clarified a few points.

Woody Allen's most famous quotes include:

1. “Money is better than poverty, if only for financial reasons” Succinctly put! Ok, so you do need money to supply the essential things in life but you don't have to ‘bust a gut' to get it.

2. "I believe there is something out there watching us. Unfortunately, it's the government." Well, I've nothing to add, I think that speaks for itself!

3. "There are worse things in life than death. Have you ever spent an evening with an insurance salesman?" A great way of explaining that problems are proportionate, you realize how small a problem is when a huge one shows up!

Woody Allen also has his own take on relationships. Relationships as you know are incredibly complex and any complications not yet discovered no doubt will be very soon. We are led by our hearts when it comes to romantic notions – our metaphorical hearts that is, not our physical ones!

4. "Love is the answer, but while you're waiting for the answer, sex raises some pretty interesting questions." And you can have as much as you want – within reason!

5. "A fast word about oral contraception. I asked a girl to go to bed with me, she said 'no'." A classic example of a sentence being taken literally!

Here is the last Woody Allen-esque piece of information I have to impart, and perhaps the most profound one. Live by this ethos and you won't go far wrong.

6. "The talent for being happy is appreciating and liking what you have, instead of what you don't have."
