Currently working myself through my Yule/Christmas orders on Etsy while trying to juggle my part-time job and mental health. At the moment I feel like I succeed in it but I can smell the incoming mental breakdowns during this stressful time of the year.
No matter if you are a business owner yourself, work in customer service or anything else - mental and physical health always comes FIRST. If you feel like you're about to break down - stop. Take a seat, take a deep breath and keep in mind that there is only one YOU and you are important.
Ruining your health, no matter if it's mental or physical, doesn't only harm yourself but also others in the long run. So please please please - take it easy and be kind to yourself. If you feel like you cannot do it - don't do it. Take some time off for yourself. Go out for walks. Drink a lot of water. Whatever makes you feel calm again.
It's a very important lesson I had to learn myself: taking time off and taking care of yourself is MENDATORY.
You are important and you are LOVED.
