Though it feels like we’re drowning in homework and stress during the school year, it’s important to remember that rest and relaxation is not a luxury, but a necessity. Taking time for yourself is absolutely essential in your day to day life. Just like a broken machine won’t work, you need to take time out of your day to recharge. Constantly pushing yourself until a breaking point is unhealthy, both physically and mentally.
Make sure you are taking care of yourself as if you were taking care of another person. Mental health comes before everything, and if you ever need help, make sure to reach out to the people around you.
