Did you know that your mental health is just as important as your physical health because your mind is the grand expert of your destiny? Mind blooooooowing.
What you think, you do; what you do, you reap. Your mind is the most powerful thing in the world because your mind controls your well-being, but remember that you’re the only one who is capable of controlling your mind; unless you’re a robot or something. It’s like this:
You -> Mind -> Happiness
If you keep on feeding your mind with negative thoughts, you’ll eventually destroy your happiness. So try to relax, drink a glass of water, and bring out the optimistic in you.
- Talk to yourself every now and then.
And only say nice things! What you say (or think) to yourself forms you in the long-run. Every morning when you wake up, go to the mirror and tell yourself; my breakthrough is near, I have a purpose in this world, and I won’t let anyone destroy the beauty in me. Say the things you know you need to hear because you’re doing this for you and not for anyone else. The more you say it, the more you’ll see it in yourself.
- Always look on the bright side.
There’s this thing called the “silver lining”, and what is it? It is the hopeful side of every people and situation. Yes! Everyone has it, even you. Remember that in every difficult situation, there’s a positive aspect. Same goes with people you encounter everyday, there’s always a good and bad side. You just have to look for the good side more.
- Don’t let your mistakes define you.
Failing is part of growing up. Even if you’re the best student in your class, there’s still a lot of things that you don’t have any knowledge of. And that’s okay. If you don’t fail; you won’t appreciate your success, you won’t appreciate the little things. Failures (and mistakes) are there for you to learn from, not to define you. These mistakes will help you discover your capabilities, develop your characteristics, and understand yourself more.
- Believe that you’ll be successful one day.
We know that it’s hard to find self-worth in a society full of expectations, but you’re not obliged to reach it. Don’t feed your mind with “perfection” because you’ll just get disappointed. Want to know an awesome fact? Well, perfection doesn’t exist. So why do you even try to reach it, right? Instead, write down your goals and your expected timeline of it; then look at it everyday (especially in days you feel horrible), you’ll be surprised how these goals can trigger a “confidence” spark in you.
- Surround yourself with positive people.
A positive environment can create a positive outcome inside of you. Hang out with your family and friends every now and then. Your emotional and mental health knows when you feel loved and appreciated that’s why socializing with people who brings out the best in you keeps your mind healthy.
- If you feel overwhelmed, learn to rest.
Most of us have busy lives that can sometimes get overwhelming, and if this happens; BREATHE. Go on a vacation with the people you love, or at least take a day off from your cycle of work (or school) -> home. This is why having a hobby is important, it makes your life more enjoyable. Whether it’s a new series to watch, new book to read, or new sport to learn; always find something to look forward to!
- Eat healthy.
We know that fries and pizza are too delicious to avoid, and we’re not stopping you from eating them. Eating your comfort food can help you be happy, too! But eating healthy and eating your comfort food are two different things (unless your favorite food is healthy). It’s because your comfort food can only give you temporary happiness, while healthy foods like avocado, apples, and bananas can help you de-stress your day, relieve your nervous system, and has a healthy fat that our brain needs in order to run evenly and block anxiety. Besides, these healthy foods are delicious, too!
