An indirect way of getting advice on your problems and worries is by asking questions to people in your circle.

Do some physical activity
We don’t necessarily like physical activities, and anything physical is time-consuming when we have a busy lifestyle. There is no time to do anything additional in our daily routine.
If you are an introvert? Physical activity does not always mean subscribing, buying new outfits, and going to the GYM to work out.
My physical activities are usually waking up early in the morning, going for a 30 minutes walk in the neighborhood before dropping my kids at school, and driving to work.
Exercise can be an effective way to get rid of stress and anxiety. It helps to release endorphins that make you feel better in the long run.
Exercise can also help you sleep better at night. Exercise has been shown to help with insomnia because it improves your sleep quality by reducing the time it takes to fall asleep and increasing the duration of deep sleep.
Some people find it challenging to exercise regularly due to a lack of time or other commitments. However, some activities don’t require much effort but still provide health benefits, such as walking, gardening, or yoga.
There is nothing in the world so beautiful that cannot be better if we only look hard enough.Garo Kotchounian
