Mental Muscle Makers

This would be the second of the three series of posts of mine which focus on Mental Health. The first one being a survey/questionnaire kinda thing here.

For this post, I'll share with you this part of the seminar on building Mental Muscle, things that would enhance our mental health and to stay healthily, mentally :-)

1) Have a good opinion of self
- you need to have a positive opinion of yourself. You need to have the self-confidence to live each day as it is. It's like, people always complain that I have loads of acne on my face, but hey, that shows that I'm still young right? :p

2) Learn to kill fears
- kill all your fears, be it fear of growing old, fear of height or just fear bout anything. Learn to overcome your fear by means of positive energies, encouragement or even activities :-)

3) Create heaven
- nothing about religions here. Heaven here means your personal place or feeling of Zen. Your own heaven that it. What places, food, activities, music or movies that make you feel calm and relaxed. That's your heaven. And embrace it whenever you can :-)

4) Don't let life short-change you
- life is forever changing. Humans are forever changing. Don't let it bind you into the past or let it control who you are. Remember, we are in control of our life, and through these changes, we grow to be stronger and more mature. Accept the changes in life, knowing that some of them are inevitable.

5) Sense of humour
- need I say more? hahaha life without laughter and jokes isn't life at all!! Come on!!! Flex that humour bone of yours and you'll soon find that life is not that dull and gloomy :-) After all, laughing for 20 minutes a day could lengthen your life :-)

6) Grow up, not old :-)
- who cares bout age? It's just a number :-p We grow up, not old. Growing is just a normal process of life and we should make full use of the time we have to strive for the best that we could :-)

7) A good relationship
- not necessary a love relationship. Any healthy relationship, be it with your wife/husband, family or friends could enhance your mental health and keep it in-check :-) It's not that hard to develop a happy relationship in my opinion. Just need to flex that smile of yours and have a common topic of conversations...that's all :-)

Cheers to a stronger Mental Muscle :-)
