Take a Step Back
Life can get really hectic really fast. This is totally normal and is something that is constantly going to be a battle. Do combat this you can practice saying no and learning to cut out things that are toxic and not worth your energy.
It may be time to slow things down and look at your life from an objective viewpoint. This can be done by detaching and analysing your life. Look at things that you do every day. There are some things that can’t be changed, such as you needed to eat, sleep and provide for yourself and your family.

This can be done by doing really simple things. It could be something really simple such as stretching out your body before you go to bed. You could also use Young Living essential oils by diffusing them throughout your home.
Learn to Love Yourself
This can be so hard to do, especially since society and most media does not promote healthy techniques. You may see someone on TV taking care and loving themselves by going on a shopping spree or hanging out at the club.
Taking care and loving yourself is so much more than that and requires you to leave some of your old habits behind. The best way to build love with yourself in a proper way is to learn and practice self care.
Find a Coach

This can be done with hard and soft skills. Maybe you want to learn more about coding. You are not really sure where to start but you have several friends that know how to code. Maybe you do not have friends who code but your friends know someone who does. You can also do this with presenting or even how to become better at teamwork.
Be Patient with Yourself
With most things that are worthwhile in life, it is going to take some time. This is going to be a process that can take a lifetime. The best thing that you can do for yourself is to be patient and understand that you are not going to see changes right away.
With some time and consistent effort, you will be able to look back and see the progress and changes that have taken place in your life. If you do not know where to start or are constantly beating yourself up, look for ways to be patient and kind with yourself.
