I woke up yesterday morning with a sense of dread and struggled to get out of bed, yet ended the day feeling energetic and liberated. Lately, I’ve been making conscious efforts to prioritize myself for the sake of maintaining my sanity. As a result, my mood and anxiety levels have improved almost instantaneously after making a crucial decision regarding my work schedule and the next step to take in my career. If you have any important decisions to make, I strongly recommend holding off on any impulsive, irrational decisions unless you’ve had time to relax and get in the right state of mind. So often our minds get bombarded by all the stressors in our lives that we lack any reserve to think clearly. So take a break, talk it out with others, weigh your options, and trust that your instincts will take you down the right path.
