There is a limit to everything and it is not a bad thing to do things that can help you release those stress away. Check out the simple things you can do to keep yourself sane.

Yes, ‘me’ time is very important so that you can still remain your true self. Being away from people and being in your own zone definitely helps you get things together. Stay at home, take a deep breath and catch up on your reading or even watch the reruns of your favourite show. Not only that, there is nothing wrong in spending a day out all by yourself as it gives you that sense of independence and giving you all the control you need.

2.Break some sweat

Working yourself into exhaustion is not something anyone would want but instead of feeling down about it, treat yourself at the end of the month or anytime you need that quick pick me up. Go treat yourself to a nice meal in your favourite café, buy new clothing or catch that blockbuster movie hitting the cinemas. Just make sure you do not overspend.

4.Declutter your home

This is non-negotiable as you definitely need ample amount of sleep to recharge your mind and body. You feel cranky and tired if you sacrifice your sleep for the sake of the things happening in your life. You still need to take good care of your own self to function well.
