Answer:

First, stop thinking of it as "time to be lazy!" It's clear you are not a lazy person—you are giving and loving and doing an incredible amount for others.

Often, people in your situation do forget to do for themselves. Remember—you won't be able to help anyone if you're not healthy! You must make time to exercise, sleep well and eat nutritious meals. Do the things you enjoy, such as reading or watching films. Even just taking 20 minutes to have a neck massage is so worth it!

Have you thought about asking someone else in your community to help with mail collection or with your move? Please don't be afraid to reach out to others to lighten your load!
