"I am what I am because of who we all were." - John F. Kennedy
We all need to take care of ourselves. It's not selfish to prioritize yourself. You'll be better able to help others if you're healthy and happy.
If you feel stressed out, try taking some deep breaths. Focus on your breathing, and let go of everything else. When you're feeling overwhelmed, try writing down your thoughts and feelings. Writing them down helps you process them, which makes it easier to deal with them later.
The best thing you can do to relieve stress is to take care of yourself. You should eat well, exercise regularly, get enough sleep, and keep busy. Stressful situations tend to be worse if you aren't eating right, exercising, getting enough rest, and keeping busy.
If you're feeling stressed out, try taking some time to relax. Take a bath, read a book, meditate, or go for a walk. These activities help reduce stress levels and improve your mood.

"You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great." - Zig Ziglar
You don't have to be perfect to start. Just start!
The best advice I ever received came from Zig Ziglar, who said, “You don’t have to be great to begin, but you have to begin to be great.” That simple statement has helped me get started on many things in life. When I first heard those words, I thought he meant that you didn’t have to become great at something right away. But then I realized what he really meant was that you don’t have anything to lose by starting. If you want to learn how to play guitar, you don’t need to be great at playing guitar right now. You just need to start learning. And if you want to write a book, you don’ t need to be great at writing books right now. You just have to start writing.
In fact, I think that’s why we often feel overwhelmed by our goals. We set them too high. We expect ourselves to accomplish them in one day, or one month, or one year. But if we break our goals into smaller steps, we’re much less likely to feel discouraged when we fail to reach them. For example, instead of trying to write a novel in one year, try writing 500 words every single day. Or instead of trying to lose 100 pounds in one month, try losing 10 pounds each week.
If you want to achieve something big, you have to start small. And if you want to get started, you have to stop thinking about what you haven’t done and start thinking about what you have already accomplished. You don’t have to be great to begin, but you have to begin to be great.

“We must become aware of what are doing and why are doing it.” – Jim Collins
“Mental health awareness doesn’t mean fighting stress, anxiety, depression and other everyday mental health issues, rather it means consciously modulating the habits that intensify those issues. Once you are in control of your habits, instead of checking your habits, you would automatically be in a much better shape, both mentally and physically. ”
“There is a tonic strength, in the hour of sorrow and affliction, in escaping from the world and society and getting back to the simple duties and interests we have slighted and forgotten. Our world grows smaller, but it grows dearer and greater. Simple things have a new charm for us, and we suddenly realize that we have been renouncing all that is greatest and best, in our pursuit of some phantom.”
―William George Jordan
