articles self-care Sep 01, 2020

"Am I happy?" While this may not be a usual question that you ask yourself, you may one day make this random inquiry into your being. Do you know how happy you are or if you are happy at all?

Most people struggle with their mental health at some point in their lives. Others do not even recognize that they have a problem until it has gotten worse. And then others seem to be able to carry the problem and deal with it the best way they can. 

Learning how to be mentally strong and fearless is one of the best gifts you can give yourself. It is not about knowing what to do all the time. Instead, it is about finding inner strength. 

What Can You Do To Be Happy?

On the other side of life, there are always small steps you can take that will lead you to be mentally and emotionally fulfilled. The new habits that you try to incorporate in your life could help you achieve a more relaxed and comfortable state of being. 

For example, instead of worrying about the problem at hand, you can focus your energy on finding the solution instead. Not only will this put an end to the problem, but it could also allow you to bring into your life the habits of mentally strong people

Choosing to see the positive side of things does not come easy, but it's always worth it. 

Steps To Improve Mental Health

What do mentally healthy people do? While every person might have his or her way of coping with stress, it is essential that you recognize what can be done to alleviate your situation. 

Before you lose all hope, here are six things mentally strong people do. In the process, you might just learn to add more based on your personal experience.

Tip 1: Always walk tall

Always try to walk tall. Studies show that if you keep your head held high and your shoulders back, you are more likely to welcome good things in your life. Also, you are likely to find yourself in a good mood too. 

In contrast, if you walk with your shoulders slouching and face long, you are more likely only to see the negative aspects of the situation. Focusing on the negative won't be helping you at all. 

Looking at the positive side of things will lead you to find solutions. It will teach you the value that comes with embracing positivity and letting go of all the negativity

Tip 2: Keep those picture-perfect moments to a minimum

You don't have to take pictures all the time. Most people think that taking photographs suspends the moment and makes it last for a lifetime. However, studies published by the Psychological Science journal suggests that constant photo taking may inhibit our natural memory-storing abilities.

Experts believe that when you take a photo, you need to focus on something, not the moment. The subject matter of your photo should always be its focus and not the situation surrounding it. 

You want to focus on the person or the thing in the photo that will remind you of a good memory. Whatever circumstance you may be in or whatever worries you may have around that time, you need to let things be. 

Perfect moments are meant to be lived and enjoyed. When you capture them in photos, you are only suspending time as well as the emotion that comes with it. 

Tip 3: Get moving

Did you know that exercise benefits the body? Regular exercise routines not only help you lose weight, but they also decrease your risk of getting depressed by as much as 19 percent. 

In a study conducted by the University of London, researchers found that active people are less likely to be depressed than those who live sedentary lives. Those who fall in the pits of depression are less likely to be active because they are too lazy to get up and move. 

If you are looking for the right motivation to get moving, just think this: when you exercise, you are not only making your physical body, you are helping your mental and emotional health as well. What could be better than that?

Tip 4: Push yourself to finish what needs to be done

How many of your tasks have you decided to put off? The longer you procrastinate, the more anxious or afraid you will become. The situation could worsen, but it could potentially debilitate your capacity to produce more and better work. 

Help yourself deal with the anxiety. Listen to music if you have to. Or perhaps you could exercise or meditate before jumping to do any work. All these could help you get moving and get things done. 

There is no point in pushing things to get done at a later time. That will only make things much worse. 

Tip 5: Get out of toxic relationships

The best way to be happy is to feel free from any form of toxicity in your life. If you are in a relationship with someone who constantly puts you down and makes you feel bad about yourself, you better get yourself together. You are not helping yourself if you continue to be with that person. 

Listen to family and friends who express their concerns about you and your toxic relationships. They may have read up the signs that you are too blind to see or even recognize. 

Tip 6: Get more sleep

Your body needs to get ample time for rest and recreation. If you are not getting enough sleep or are struggling to sleep, you should do something about it. Seek help from professionals if you need to. 

What Else Can You Do?

If you are looking for more ways to help yourself get healthy, go ahead, and enjoy what life has to give you. Enjoy every moment of doing what you love to do.
