You can feel stress in your body when you have too much to do or when you don’t have enough sleep.

But whatever I share, do remember that overcoming stress WILL NOT come from a half-hearted effort, and you will NOT see the results overnight.
It will take determination, persistence and time, inshaAllah. Some suggestions may help immediately, but if your stress level doesn’t seem to improve, it may require more attention or some lifestyle changes, alright?

The positive feeling of “checking off” tasks is very satisfying. It will motivate you to keep going. And it’s true! If you have not tried it, you can start doing it.
