IS IT THAT SIMPLE?

Yes, it is.  Make yourself a priority because YOU ARE IMPORTANT! When you do not make yourself a priority, both your mental and physical health suffer. Not prioritizing yourself also affects your relationships. Learn to set boundaries. It's okay to say no, love yourself, and do what you love while spending time on yourself.

 

In addition, do not over exhaust yourself, ask for help, surround yourself with positive people, and let go of those who burden or hold you back. Finally, engage in activities you cherish, and limit your time on social media.
