Mental strength training: Self-care for personal growth

In today’s achievement-oriented society, it’s easy to rush from one task to another. You quickly become self-critical when things don’t go as planned and often forget to celebrate the small wins along the way. The things you actually accomplish and do well.

To build mental strength and resilience, it’s important to take care of yourself .

You can practice being more compassionate and kind to yourself. Self-care is about giving yourself the care you need, both physically and mentally.

It can be prioritizing time just for yourself, for relaxation or doing things you enjoy – not because you have to, but purely for the sake of joy.

Positive self-talk plays a important role

Instead of being harsh on yourself when things don’t go as planned, try speaking to yourself in a supportive and encouraging way.

Acknowledge your efforts and focus on everything you do well, instead of criticizing what doesn’t go as well.

When you practice self-care and positive self-talk, you not only strengthen your mental health but also enhance your ability to handle stress and adversity. It helps you build a sense of mastery, motivation, and inner strength.

In challenging times, reminding yourself of all the things you do well can help you find balance in daily life.

Take time to reflect and be present in the moment. Be kind to yourself and acknowledge your strengths and achievements. It makes you more resilient.

Practicing positive self-talk and gratitude is about appreciating the here and now.

It gives you a break from the constant pursuit of more. It helps you become less self-critical and more loving towards yourself. It makes you more content, enhances feelings of happiness, and turns off negative thoughts and emotions.

How to get started

  1. Start small: Begin by identifying one thing each day that you excel at, appreciate about yourself, like, or are grateful for.

  2. Write it down: Record these experiences in a journal. It reinforces the good feeling and gives you time to reflect. Use the diary actively to activate positive emotions and a sense of gratitude. Positive memories act as a buffer against stress and negative thoughts.

  3. Self-care: Remember to prioritize time for self-care. This can include everything from taking a break to read a book, meeting friends, reflecting on your day, your thoughts, or going for a walk.

  4. Breathing exercises: Take a few minutes each day to practice a breathing exercise. This can help lower stress levels and increase presence.
