One of the biggest challenges we face as humans are being mentally strong and managing our thoughts, emotions, and actions. How do we make decisions, stay focused and be successful? How do we handle stress and setbacks? And how do we avoid feeling burned out or exhausted at the end of the day?
According to research from Charles Duhigg, author of The Power of Habit, up to 40% of our actions are habit-driven, meaning we do the same things repeatedly without thinking about what we are doing. This tells us a lot about why some people are mentally strong than others.
How to be mentally strong? Mentally strong people have developed certain habits that allow them to achieve their goals and live healthy, happy life.
How to be mentally stronger? Here are a few habits that can help you become mentally stronger:
Make time for self-care. Every day, it is important to set aside some time for self-care. Even if you only have a few minutes to spend doing something you enjoy, you can still make time for yourself. Taking a few minutes to do something that relaxes you can help you clear your mind and improve your mood. Many mentally strong people find meditation to be particularly beneficial.
Take breaks throughout the day. Sometimes we can get so caught up in getting things done that we forget to take a moment to relax and recharge. Taking regular breaks throughout the day can be very beneficial for your mental health. It can help you relax and improve your ability to concentrate and focus.

Don’t stress out over the little things. Dwelling on the things that have gone wrong is not going to help you make progress. Learn to accept mistakes and failures as part of the learning process and move on. Focus on the things that you can control and focus on creating positive change in your life.
Be kind to yourself. Many people tend to be hard on themselves when they make mistakes or experience setbacks. Being too critical of your own performance can take a toll on your self-esteem and lead to feelings of self-doubt. Learn how to be kind to yourself and give yourself a break every once in a while. This will help you maintain your motivation and keep going when things get tough.
Set reasonable goals for yourself. Setting goals can help you stay focused and motivate yourself to work hard towards achieving them. It is important to set goals that are achievable but also challenge you enough to keep you motivated and moving forward. It is also important to be realistic about the amount of time that it will take to reach your goals. Set smaller goals that you can accomplish in a shorter period of time to keep you motivated and help you reach your destination.
Once you can commit to these habits outlined above half the journey is completed.
