RELAX and take it one day at a time

You're tired. You're stressed out. You feel like there isn't enough time in the day to do everything. Life seems overwhelming, many of your problems seemingly insurmountable.

We've all been there.

Just relax and take things one day at a time.

Problems can't be fixed overnight. Worries don't evaporate in the blink of an eye.

Take it one step at a time. A horrible day won't last forever. There's always the promise of a better tomorrow.

Things will get better with time. If you feel you've reached the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on. If you feel it can't get any worse, smile -- it'll only get better moving forward.

But you must never lose hope. Once hope is lost, it becomes nearly impossible to break out of the downward spiral so many of us get ourselves in. We become deeply depressed, our self-esteem and vigor diminishing more and more by the day.

Don't let that vicious circle of negativity get the best of you. Remind yourself that this storm, too, shall pass. Inhale. Exhale. Relax.

Never be afraid to reach out for support, whether to friends, family, or a counselor.

There are people in your life who love and depend on you. While reassurances of their love are important, you must love yourself first and foremost. 

Happiness begins with you. If you're not happy with yourself, no amount of attention from your doting relatives or friends can compensate for that.

Remind yourself of this: You're a wonderful person of great talents. You have so much to give the world. Don't let your problems beset you. Attack them head-on and maintain faith that you will persevere. Stay positive and never give up!
