The world we live in is a hectic place - there is no doubt about it. Each day, we humans have to combat the highs, lows, and hustle of the ones around us, which are caused by the wanting we have to live the life we always have dreamed of.
This immense amount of pressure we put on ourselves to be successful and reach our goals is tremendous. And as we try our very best to succeed, we also have the stress of 100 other things that may be going on at that moment in time. From family and relationship issues to work disputes and the wanting to do well in our curricular activities and much more, who knows what could possibly be going on daily. With all of this comes the difficulty of remembering one of the most important points of all time.
As a matter of fact, this point is very simple. It is to care for yourself and ensure that in the process of life you don't lose yourself to the drama of what goes on. In 20 years, you don't want to be the person that looks back on their life and wonders what it would be like if you just followed your own path and did what you thought was best for yourself and just simply took care of yourself.
This task may seem very tedious and hard to do, but if you have the mindset of being your own person on top of wanting to be the successful man or woman you have always wanted to be, it is very doable.
The struggle of trying to not wake up and have the mindset of dreading going to work and then waiting with bated breath to come home so you just can go eat dinner, fall asleep, and do it again, isn't always the most ideal mindset to have.
Work is a necessity, I understand. But at the same time, you can go home and you can get a 30 minute cardio session in at the gym, you can sit down and start the book that you have been dying to open, you can go to the movie theater and see the movie you haven't had time to see, and how crazy does this sound? You can actually relax!
Work is tiring; it is far from easy, and for many, it is far from enjoyable. Just because work isn't the best part of your day, don't let it take over your life and the rest of the 24 hours you have left. To work hard is one thing, but to allow work to take over your life is not acceptable.
Having a job isn't the only thing that can make you feel as if you have zero time for yourself. Taking care of a family member or being a full-time student at a university are all things that can make you lose track of time and yourself. And if you have the mindset of not letting work or school just be your story, then go out there and be one with yourself.
Your body is a temple, and it needs your attention.
