How to improve your mentality
People often ask me, “What do I need to do to be healthy, emotionally?” There’s a whole lot of nooks and crannies in that question. One of the most important parts is to discover what you actually need.
So I’m going to focus on 2 very specific parts that can help you build your mental wellbeing. One is resilience, and the other is to build self-esteem.
What is it that helps you make it through the tough times? What gifts and attributes do you develop, if any, that make you a strong, compassionate and an able to make it through the peaks and the valleys of life?
We all have fears. Most of us have fears we don’t even recognize. Fear is the mother of all emotions. Our natural state is fear, which is foreign to us. As you travel through your life you encounter many different types of situations. Some of these you can handle and some you won’t. Either way, through it all you must know that you can get through it.
There are many ways to help you handle it. You can change your thoughts and actions so that you are less likely to have those fears. Instead of having an alcoholic mother you can surround yourself with people who drink sensibly. In other words, you can become sensitive to the other side. You can ask specific kinds of questions, or you can learn questions that will help you face your fears. There are many ways that will help you face your fears and find a safety zone for you to thrive.
The goal of self-esteem is to obtain an affectionate sense of yourself. There is great importance in thinking highly of yourself. People who feel good about themselves often say things like, “I’m good looking”, “I’m intelligent” or “I’m well dressed.” When you think highly of yourself you are in a good mood. You feel your world is a safe place. You feel you can move through life with confidence.
Unfortunately, we all have a shadow side and when our dark side is not controlled we will find it to have a negative effect not only on your self-esteem, but also your emotional health. When you think negatively, you are going to feel down, depressed, and perhaps even suicidal. There are many ways for you to help your self-esteem, but another important step is to learn to become optimistic.
What you believe will become your reality. When you think positively, you are in a good mood. And a lot of the time will be found in your thoughts, what you meditate on, and how you react to different situations.
There are many other things you can do to help you be emotionally healthy, and I invite you to get started on self-esteem and take one small step at a time.
What you think, you will attract
When you think positively, you will find more good in your life. You will come across more positive thinking people and opportunities. You will be in good shape. And those around you will be drawn to you in the same way.
If you want to grow more in a positive direction, you must conduct a positive search every day on where you want to be, who you want to be, what you want to become. Be persistent and positive.
Remember, what you think about you will get. Find the happiness that you want. It’s in the thoughts you think negative thoughts that give birth to unhappy emotions and ultimately to unhealthy lifestyles. Remember to learn positive thoughts.
