When saying anything else doesn’t help…
This is something I’m trying really hard to do, especially when it comes to mental health. I’ll become so preoccupied with whatever I’m doing, that I forget that I need to take a break, because I’m feeling overwhelmed. Or sometimes I wanna go to a gathering, but I’m having a bad migraine. Regardless whatever the reason is for failing to look at your overall health, don’t feel bad for putting your self-care first. It well help in the long run. If people feel like you’re flaking, as hard as it, put your self-care first. As much as you might be a little behind on accomplishing your tasks, put your self-care first.
Let me assure you (from my own experiences) in those two instances, those friends would do the same thing to you if it was their well-being involved (plus it’s also a good way of seeing who your real friends are) and the latter, it’s better if you miss that one moment at a task, than pushing yourself through something and getting really sick only to miss more time to accomplish your task.
