Managing mental health during stressful periods of our lives can be difficult. It is common to sometimes overthink, feel sad, and anxious even when the reason is unknown. Improving your mental wellness includes learning more about yourself, understanding your behaviors, and accepting your imperfections while actively working to be the best version of YOU.
It's hard for you to put yourself first or even ask for help. You've been struggling with anxiety or burnout for a while and you know something needs to change, but you tend to take care of everyone else before yourself. You're usually the first to jump into help others and are the go-to person for your family, friends, or coworkers so prioritizing your own mental health almost feels selfish since you think you "don't have it that bad". But now you're ready to take the step to reconnect with your own needs, make yourself a priority, and clarify your core values so they can be your road map towards the life you want.
