Taking time for ourselves may be one important thing we always forget about, both for our mental and physical health. However, we often think that we need a lot of time to change, but we don’t realize that sometimes only 30 minutes per day can be just enough. These 15 people are true inspirations and have proven that every obstacle can be overcome.

10. “Me and my 8-month-old son. I’m 30 years old and have suffered from infertility my whole life until last year when I found out I was pregnant!”
