It can happen without you even noticing. Suddenly your life no longer feels like it is your own. Overwhelming work demands, busy family schedules, even modern technology add stress by making you accessible 24/7. Environmental issues that deplete your physical wellbeing end up as priorities, while you and your own personal life, values, beliefs, thoughts, wishes and dreams come in second place - if not third.

Remember to allow yourself time and patience to turn this around. Be kind to yourself as you learn to make yourself a priority. You might have to start with only five minutes per day, or every other day until slowly you can carve out more and more time for yourself. Aim for 30 minutes per day. Accept that if you do not take care of yourself, nobody else will either.
