Everyday we come across many things or events, every single event gives us different feelings such as joy, sorrow, love hate etc. These all together called emotions.The ability to understand one’s own feeling or the ability to understand others feelings and differentiating between them irrespective of surrounding by considering the situation of the person tells us the emotional ability or mental strength of one’s.
To learn new things or to overcome from Forgetfulness/ Forgetting/ Difficulty in Remembering it is necessary to be mentally strong. Being stuck at one point or being at stuck at any emotions will never allow you to learn new things because we need fresh and free air to learn. For this we need to be mentally strong.
Being emotionally strong or being mentally strong doesn’t mean you don’t experience pain instead it means how you deal with it, how patiently you take things, how well you calm others to deal with their problems. It is very important to be mentally strong to lead a happy life. Practically, it is not possible to control the things which will happen in future, but we can always have control over our reaction to problems. Let us know how to strengthen our mind….
1. DARE TO FACE YOURSELF – Strengthening of Mind /Being Emotionally Strong
It is not easy to face ourselves, because we know everything about us! How the problem has arrived and how we reacted to it. We can lie to others but not to ourselves. We are the witnesses of our own feelings. Accept the reality. Be honest with yourself, it will set you free.
For example, a person named ‘X’ tells that he will go for a walk in the morning at 7 am. But in the morning he becomes lazy and fails to wake up at the right time!
Unless you go really honest with yourself, you can never set your mind for anything.
2. CARE YOURSELF – Strengthening of Mind /Being Emotionally Strong
Human body needs a balanced life style, which includes the basic needs healthy food, water and oxygen. Along with these we also need body exercise, rest and relaxation. All these are equally important in one’s life to be mentally and physically healthy.
(a) Healthy food:
Healthy food in the sense a balanced diet, which includes fruits, veggies, grains, eggs and dairies, etc. Drink plenty of water.
Have a habit of regular exercise according to your daily schedule, do not reduce it to less than 30 minutes. After exercising, do meditation for few more minutes, to relax both your body and mind.
(c) Proper sleep:
An adult needs 8 hours of night sleep. Remember! night sleep! 😀 do not sleep inside the classroom or workplace. If you do so, it is one of the sign of being mentally weak! 😀
3. THINK BEFORE YOU ACT – Strengthening of Mind /Being Emotionally Strong
When something disturbing activity happens to you, close your eyes for a moment, take a deep breath and
