Since the brain is one of the most important parts of our body, we should make time to take care of it as much as other parts of our body. By training our mental fitness, we can avoid anxious thoughts when they occur and focus on positive reframing. In order to accomplish this, we have to actively make ourselves more resilient, which will result in feeling less anxious and more content. To do so, you can incorporate little tasks into your daily routine, such as exercise, time away from your phone, and being with other people, which will help build a resilient mindset.
- Just as warm-ups are useful before physical exercise, preventative measures are beneficial for mental wellbeing.
- Training mental fitness is ultimately about making yourself more resilient.
- Practicing mental fitness can involve a lot of little daily tasks, such as exercising and spending time away from your phone.
“If we experience or believe that something is going to harm us in some way, our brain is going to actively try and prevent that from happening.”
