It means looking after your physical and emotional needs and managing your stress level. listed several tips to managing a healthy lifestyle while looking for another job:

  • Maintain balance in your life. Don’t let your job search consume you. Make time for fun, rest, and relaxation—whatever revitalizes you. Your job search will be more effective if you are mentally, emotionally, and physically at your best.

I agree. Certain relationships can be extremely toxic. I remember being in one quite some time ago. I especially agree that people may not want to admit it. In my past I dealt with a toxic relationship and I did not want to admit it.
