You probably don't have to think hard to recall when a distraction or delay proved helpful. You may have formed a solid expectation regarding what you wanted to happen. However, you might have had to adapt to an unexpected development that, at first, you felt you could do without. But if, back then, you eventually felt glad about what occurred, you could experience something similarly pleasing now.
Valuing your health, if you get too busy, you reluctantly must refuse to put yourself out for the benefit of others or pay attention to their welfare at the expense of your well-being. It's impossible to help especially if you're overstretched, so try to be sparing with your energy, dare to say "no" if necessary.
Postpone any planned investments and purchases if you can. Unforeseen events could ruin your aspirations and projects. Keep hold of your money so that you can react flexibly to unexpected occurrences. Don't let yourself be taken in by bad advice you don't completely believe in.
