SOURCES OF STRENGTH

Mental strength means that you regulate your


emotions, manage your thoughts, and behave
in a positive manner, despite your
circumstances.
Although it’s easier to feel mentally strong when
life seems simple -- often, true mental
strength becomes most apparent in the midst
of tragedy. Choosing to develop skills that
increase your mental strength is the best way
to prepare for life’s inevitable obstacles.
HOW TO ENHANCE MENTAL STRENGTH

1. Evaluate Your Core Beliefs


We’ve all developed core beliefs about ourselves, our lives and the
world in general. Core beliefs develop over time and largely depend
upon our past experiences. Whether you’re aware of your core beliefs or
not, they influence your thoughts, your behavior and emotions.
2. Expend Your Mental Energy Wisely
Wasting brain power ruminating about things you can’t control drains
mental energy quickly. The more you think about negative problems that
you can’t solve, the less energy you’ll have leftover for creative
endeavors. Save your mental energy for productive tasks, such as
solving problems or setting goals. When your thoughts aren’t productive,
make a conscious effort to shift your mental energy to more helpful
topics.
3. Replace Negative Thoughts with Productive
Thoughts
Although most of us don’t spend time thinking about our thoughts,
increasing your awareness of your thinking habits proves useful in building
resilience. Identify and replace overly negative thoughts with thoughts that
are more productive. Productive thoughts don’t need to be extremely
positive, but should be realistic.
4. Practice Tolerating Discomfort
Being mentally strong doesn’t mean you don’t experience emotions. In fact,
mental strength requires you to become acutely aware of your emotions so
you can make the best choice about how to respond. Mental strength is
about accepting your feelings without being controlled by them. Mental
strength also involves an understanding of when it makes sense to behave
contrary to your emotions.
5. Reflect on Your Progress
Developing mental strength is a work in progress. There
is always room for improvement, and at times this will
seem more difficult than at other times. Reflecting upon
your progress can reinforce your ability to reach your
definition of success while living according to your
values.
SELF-CARE

-ANY ACTIVITY THAT WE DE DELIBERATELY IN ORDER TO


TAKE CARE OF OUR MENTAL, EMOTIONAL AND PHYSICAL
HEALTH.

GOOD SELF-CARE IS THE KEY TO IMPROVE MOOD AND


REDUCE ANXIETY. IT IS ALSO THE KEY TO GOOD
RELATIONSHIP WITH ONESELF AND OTHERS.

IT IS KNOWING WHAT WE NEED TO DO IN ORDER TO TAKE


CARE OF OURSELVES AND OTHERS AS WELL.
THREE BASIC ASPECT OF SELF-CARE

Awareness- This requires you to slow down and focus inwardly to


determine how you are feeling, what your stress level is, what
types of thoughts are going through your head, and whether
your behaviors and actions are consistent with the who you
want to be.
Balance - The next step is to seek balance in all areas of your life
including work, personal and family life, rest, and leisure. You
will be more productive when you’ve had opportunities to rest
and relax. Becoming aware of when you are losing balance in
your life gives you an opportunity to change.
Connection - The final step is connection. It involves building
connections and supportive relationships with your co-workers,
friends, family, and community. One of the most powerful
stress reducers is social connection.
AVOID :

Extended periods of solo work without colleagues


or working “round the clock” with few breaks
Negative self-talk that reinforces feelings of
inadequacy or incompetency
Common attitudinal obstacles to self-care (e.g.,
“It would be selfish to take time to rest.” )
Negatively assessing your contribution
Use of excessive amount of alcohol, illicit drugs,
or excessive amounts of prescription drugs
