So often, people tend to live out their lives under a great deal of stress.
So often we try to just suck it up and carry on as if it will eventually disappear.
Carrying on in such a manner is asking for trouble.
When we are stressed out, we become susceptible to illness. We become extremely tired and lethargic. We can’t function as well as we once could.
So often I hear phrases like: “I was so busy taking care of others that I wasn’t taking care of myself”.
Take care of you!
If you are feeling happy, you drag down everyone else around you. Be your best self always.
If you don’t feel well, don’t try to suck it up and go to work. Take a day off and rest.
We may come up with excuses like: “I need the money”. “I can’t afford to take a day off”. “Everyone else needs me”.
No one is going to demonize you for taking care of yourself. If someone does, they aren’t worth your time and effort.
Once you stop finding excuses and start taking care of you, then life becomes richer and more wholesome.
You don’t have to lie or put on a false face in front of others. You can speak your truth always.
We are the sum of the choices we make. If we make choices that are best for us, then those choices reflect on our well-being.
So even if just for one day, do something for yourself. Relax. De-stress yourself. Don’t be consumed by work or home life. You deserve it.
Have a great week everyone 🙂
