Self-Maintenance as a Priority

There are so many days in my life that go nothing like the way I have planned them. This often causes me to work longer or work harder to try to catch up.

This approach usually backfires – I end up more stressed and less able to accomplish what I aspire to. It seems much better to keep self-maintenance activities as a priority and be the best I can be for whatever life brings me.
