We are fast becoming a nation of stressed-out individuals, but the problem is not a new one. It is believed that 40% of the things we worry about will never happen, 30% happened in the past and can’t be changed, 12% reflect needless health concerns, and 10% represent silly, miscellaneous details. That means only 8% of our worries are legitimate. We would feel much more relaxed and stress free if we understood that 92% of our worries are unnecessary. We would be sleeping better and spending a lot less money on antidepressants and tranquilizers.
It is important to take care of yourself — physically, emotionally and socially. Take time for yourself. Take time to recharge your battery. This will give you the ability to have energy and enthusiasm for what is important in your life and your ability to help those closest to you who need you. Stress is a part of every day life. Take time to manage your stress. This is not a luxury but a necessity.
You cannot be there for others if you do not take care of yourself first. You need to be strong and on the right track, before you can be there for your family and friends. Done responsibly, it is not selfish. Remember to be patient with yourself, your family members and your friends as this is very, very important. Life is not perfect for any of us. We must continue to have hope for the future. Be optimistic yet realistic in your dreams. Never compromise your integrity, take care of yourself and each other.
