It is so important to take care of your own well-being, mental and physical health.

Monitor stress levels.

Be self-aware. How are you feeling right now?

Recognize when it has become too much, draw boundaries.

Rest. 

It is okay to say no.

It is okay to put your own oxygen on first.

It's fine to move away from drama, toxicity, negativity if you know that it is negatively impacting your life.

You do not need to keep struggling with a never ending battle that is making you unhappy.

There is a difference between a helping hand and a door mat.

Make sure you are taking care of your own needs.

Don't let things build until you burn out.

It's not heroic.

Don't compare your situation to others.

If someone needs a break, recognize that, support them.

Make choices about what is acceptable in your life and stick with them.

Maintain your boundaries.

Don't just go until you drop.

Allow others to stand up, allow them to learn and to shine. Ask for help.

Take care of yourself, because if you don't care for you, it's unlikely anyone else will.

Say no; and learn not to feel guilty.
