2. Calm Down it’s Just a Moment
It’s definitely a moment or a phase since life is full of ups and downs. Therefore, try not to provoke your negative thoughts or anxiety. Try to keep yourself calm and motivate yourself. You can try to calm down activities or other self-care activities to get through it. or you can also try to:

4. Schedule Everything, Even Your Worries

Even if you need time for yourself or even if you want to cry, schedule it so that you can discover a lot more about yourself. Also, it will help you with better problem-solving skills.
Make sure when you’re worrying or crying, you’re only focusing on problems but also on solutions. Personally speaking, this works every time! Every time I make time for worrying, it helps me with a solution.
5. Self-care Is the Key
I know you’re focusing a lot on your body, strengths, weaknesses, career, and life. And this brings us to little self-care because self-care is not selfish and it is important. While you’re making a to-do list or plan of action, make sure you’re also scheduling time for self-care (at least twice a week). During self-care, you can try:
- Get sleep.
- Eat healthily.
- Focus on skincare
