Changing your habits, lifestyles and thought patterns can’t be done in a flash. There are no quick solutions on the way to your goal.

You have to do the hard work, whether it comes to getting in better physical shape (building your fitness, running a marathon) or your mental health (improving your self-esteem, working with stress or motivation). [···]

Are you good enough?

by Hilde Amundsen, founder Mindfit app

You may have very different thoughts and feelings about yourself as a person, and about yourself in specific roles – as a parent, a partner or a friend, or in how you cope with your work life.

It can be more important for us to have a sense of mastery in some areas, or to have good feelings about what we do, while in other areas it may not be as important to us. It is different for different people. We are influenced by our own inner voice and our experience of how we cope, in addition to the feedback we get from the environment around us.  [···]

By Ove Heradstveit, psychologist and owner of the web portal Hjelptilhjelp.no

Our everyday lives consist of many tasks, demands and expectations. Life consists of many ideals, dreams and hopes.

People who experience a lot of stress have a tendency to not prioritize what is most important in their lives. When every task becomes super important, this is undoubtedly a good way to create stress.

Often we have to choose, and every choice involves choosing not to do something. It is important to learn that this is simply a part of life and that we are not super humans. We must allow ourselves to let some tasks go, and just take time to have fun. [···]

Have you ever had a question that has meant a lot to you, and that has caused you to change your focus? Or are there things that have been said to you that you remember for the rest of your life – that have shaped you as a person?

I have. My doctor once asked me a simple and meaningful question many years ago. I often think about it, because it is an important reminder that I need to choose what I want to prioritize – what I want to do more or less of.

For me there was one important question that helped change my life:

What gives you energy in your daily life, Hilde? Where do you get new energy from? Do you get more energy when you are at home, or are you drained of energy?

Highly sensitive – Finding strength in your sensitivity

sensitive-and-strong-mindfitapp-s(Read this in Norwegian)
written by Lian Kirksæther

At the outset, being sensitive is a strength, but it can easily be turned into something negative in our society.

Today’s society is characterized by deadlines and time constraints, and places ever increasing demands on the individual, which combined are not a good fit for sensitive individuals. This causes more and more people to be stressed and sick, and increases burnt-out, because the nervous system in sensitive individuals has a lower threshold for activation, and these individuals take in more information from the environment than average. [···]
