First of all, I would like to apologize to my dear audience for being MIA for so long. I have been traveling during the past 3 months, in Israel, Mauritius, Australia, Japan, China, Italy, Georgia, Spain, Thailand, and Bali, and I have finally returned to my sweet sweet home. For those who follow my Instagram Stories, you probably have noticed that I had just spent my entire week at a yoga retreat in Bali last week, to focus on the zen, mindfulness and stay present ( I will write a separate post for my yoga retreat experiences in Bali), which inspired me to write this post in order to share my thoughts with you on how to stay mentally fit during you everyday busy city life, where you might be experiencing various pressures, noises, and temptations from work, family and friends.
Here’s a few quick and short tips for those who want to stay mentally fit and healthy
1 – Exercise Regularly
When you are feeling stressed, exercising is a the best way to de-stress. When you are feeling demotivated for your day, try to hit the gym before you start your day, and I guarantee you that you will feel pumped and more motivated after that.
2 – Try to Meditate in Morning
Our mood for the entire day and our daily productivity is often based on how we feel in the morning after we get out from the bed. Therefore, it is crucial to prepare yourself for the day in the morning by feed the body and mind the right frequency. Some of you might not believe in meditation, actually I didn’t believe in it until I tried it myself earlier this. It is quite a powerful tool to help you calm down, keep the noises and random thoughts away from your mind, and stay focused. A quick 10-15 minutes session in the morning, could help you to keep the negative thoughts and energy away, and prepare yourself to stay focused for a big day. (You should treat every day as your big day!)
3 – Start Your Conversation with a Smile
Not sure if you have noticed, but when you are low in energy level or feeling negative about something, you actually resonates those negative frequencies onto those around you. Likewise, for the positive energies. You might find it daunting to smile someone to start a conversation when someone doesn’t smile back. This might happen for the first or the second time, by the third time, I’m sure that person will reply you with a warm smile from the bottom of his/her heart. Try to brighten up the day for those around you by start a conversation with a warm smile, eventually you will notice that you can achieve so much more during you everyday life than otherwise.
4 – Review Your Day before Bed
We should review our day before bed, by given thoughts to what we have done well or wrong. However, we shouldn’t look back beyond that particular day. Many people have depressions because they linger too much around their past regretting on the things they have or haven’t done. The past is the past, and future is for the later. It is important to focus on the present moments, so we won’t be regretting so much for the things we presently didn’t do sometime in the future. Furthermore, it is crucial for us to know what we have done well or wrong each day, so we can keep improving ourselves to achieve the long-term goal.
5 – Stay Focused with Your Long-term Goals
Without long-term goals to keep you on focused, you are only live your life by days. Do you ever feel like you have no purpose to wake up in the morning everyday? Do you ever feel like your life is purposeless? If you do, then maybe it’s about time for you to think about what your passion is and to build a long-term goal around your passion (I have written a post ‘Building Your Person Brand’ dedicated to how to build your personal brand around your passion and how to monetize from it.)
6 – Learn to Love Yourself
If we don’t even love ourselves, who is going to love us? The person you should love the most is not your partner, your parents or your kids, but yourself. When we love ourselves, we will be more aware of our strength and shortcomings and feel good about ourselves; we will be more prepared to love those around us; we will be more likely to help those who needs help; and how
So what are your secrets of staying mentally fit? Would love to hear your thoughts and it would be great if you can share your secrets below with everyone 🙂
