Hey it’s OK, to want to take a break and make the world revolve around you for a bit. Especially after 2020, we all deserve it. Don’t hold back, self care and mental wellness are extremely important and the more you focus and accept you for who you are the brighter life around you will be.
Here are tips to be selfish, put yourself first and know it’s ok if you make a mistake or two. After all we are all human.
...To wonder how to navigate life now that things are different.
...If you still don’t know how to parallel park – there are more pressing issues right now.
...To decline a video call because you’re not camera ready.
...If posting pics of yourself on Instagram all day makes you feel like you’re thriving in the digital space. Who’s counting anyway?
...If the top half of your body’s Zoom ready, but the bottom half ’s bed ready.
...To wonder where you belong as you try to find your place in the digital age.
...If you’re tired of working from home, but you’re not keen on going back to the office either.
