When you are tired, sleep. When you are in pain, don’t ignore it. When you are emotionally disturbed, talk to your friend or family. In case of discomfort, seek medical advice. Remember Stitch in time, saves nine.

Live a purposeful life:–
Review the day’s events each evening for 5 to 10 minutes and ask yourself what experiences gave you a life and what drained life. This will help you discover where you find purpose and meaning.
Be courageous & face fear:–
Fear is a universal human response to perceived threat. It prepares us to react to danger quickly. So when fear arises, recognize it–don’t deny it. Redefine F.E.A.R as face everything and rise. Avoiding it prevents us from moving forward—it makes us anxious.
Spend time with nature:–
Break an addiction to technology, reduce screen time & spend time with nature. Being with nature relaxes us & refreshes us. It improves our mood. It distracts us from pain & discomfort. Bring a bit of nature indoor by letting the natural light in, by adding a few plants to your décor, by diffusing a few drops of peppermint or lavender oil to enhance attention & your mood. Spending time with a pet offers a welcome distraction from life’s worries.
