When you take good care of your mental well-being, you are much less likely to suffer from stress. For example, if you are under a heavy workload and also have a lot of family responsibilities that take up your headspace when you are not working, then you are likely to end up feeling stressed out. Left unchecked, you can even burnout
or suffer from a breakdown. However, if you take some time out to empty your mind, perhaps with some exercise or meditation
, then you can reorder the business of your brain and feel less stressed out. In many cases, taking time out to de-stress will mean you can focus more on the things you need to prioritise, so you end up achieving more, something that often lowers levels of anxiety, too. A good diet, regular sleep, doing more physically and clearing your mind are all good anti-stress self care methods.
