Psychology often discusses mental health — but what's not often discussed is a clear definition of mental strength.

Developing mental strength is a work in progress. There is always room for improvement, and at times this will seem more difficult than at other times. Reflecting upon your progress can reinforce your ability to reach your definition of success while living according to your values.

Bill Palladino - MLUI's curator insight, December 11, 2013 6:43 PM

So you're at the top of your corporate game.  You rise before dawn, do a thousand crunches, yanked fifty pull-ups, and squated the equivalent weight of your BMW run five miles,  all before you sit in that beauty for your morning commute.  You're big, strong, looking tight and chiseled.  But what about your mental strength?  Have you ever excercised that muscle before getting to work?  Hmmm..

I like the article's distinction of "productive" thoughts (rather than "positive thoughts")

Sara Picken-Brown's insight:

Commit to a simple daily routine that includes getting up every morning at the same time. Getting to bed every night at the same time.
Eat breakfast every morning.
Drink 3-5 litres of water everyday.
Exercise everyday at the same time, if ts is not possible, then commit to exercising no matter what in the 24 hours you have been gifted in your day.
Commit to taking 15min before your day starts to engage in BREATHING TRAINING. Find a quite space with no distractions, children,TV or visual disturbances to focus your thoughts, breath and energy on the rhythm and rate of your breath. This is your check-in, ignite and focus time to prepare yourself for your day.
Practice emotional control.
Remind yourself of 4 key Life Strategies:
Be Impeccable with your word-take responsibility for all you do & say.
Dont make it personal
Assume nothing
Engage in everything with enthusiasm and 100% presence.

75 Years In The Making: Epic Study On What Men Need To Live A Happy Life

75 Years In The Making: Epic Study On What Men Need To Live A Happy Life | Headspace | Scoop.it

"Begun in 1938, the Grant Study of Adult Development charted the physical and emotional health of over 200 men, starting with their undergraduate days.  The now-classic ‘Adaptation to Life’ reported on the men’s lives up to age 55 and helped us understand adult maturation.  Now George Vaillant follows the men into their nineties, documenting for the first time what it is like to flourish far beyond conventional retirement.  Reporting on all aspects of male life, including relationships, politics and religion, coping strategies, and alcohol use (its abuse being by far the greatest disruptor of health and happiness for the study’s subjects), ‘Triumphs of Experience’ shares a number of surprising findings.  For example, the people who do well in old age did not necessarily do so well in midlife, and vice versa.  While the study confirms that recovery from a lousy childhood is possible, memories of a happy childhood are a lifelong source of strength.  Marriages bring much more contentment after age 70, and physical aging after 80 is determined less by heredity than by habits formed prior to age 50.  The credit for growing old with grace and vitality, it seems, goes more to ourselves than to our stellar genetic makeup."

12 Lies People Love to Tell You | Headspace | Scoop.it

Over the years you’ve developed a set of beliefs based on what others have told you.  The problem is, many of these people weren’t telling the truth.  They were merely repeating the little, seemingly innocent lies someone else once told them.  Now, the false beliefs they’ve ingrained in your mind are impeding your potential and holding you back from the life you’re capable of living.

 

Here are twelve lies you’ve likely heard and the truth that will set you free:

Sandeep Gautam's curator insight, December 4, 2013 6:09 AM

"June Price Tangney, a psychology professor and leading researcher of moral emotions and cognitions at George Mason University describes what she considers to be true humility this way: Having the ability to acknowledge our mistakes and limitations, having an openness to new ideas, and being able to maintain a realistic perspective of our place in the larger world."

John Michel's curator insight, December 4, 2013 9:16 AM

While any one individual’s self-serving biases can poison the dynamics of a group, when people in an organization, family, or group practice a truth-seeking humility, the better the chances of their shared endeavor being a smash success.

John Michel's curator insight, December 22, 2013 6:21 PM

How we "digest" our life experiences, both negative and positive, can be instrumental in influencing levels of happiness. Reported happiness cannot always be fully explained by life events themselves — it is how we view those life events that proves to be pivotal.

Carma Lisa Arrendell's curator insight, January 22, 2:01 PM

I can remember back in the day Women were at a place in history to gain rights. The thought was the only difference was that men were stronger, and differences occurred due to the different ways girls and boys are raised. Well, science is indicating we are truly wired differently. I enjoy the book "The Five Love Languages," and "His Needs, Her Needs."

Sweat Your Way To A Healthier Brain

Sweat Your Way To A Healthier Brain | Headspace | Scoop.it

"He feels smarter already."

 

Moving your body may be the best way to protect your brain.

 

Physical exercise can ease depression, slow age-related memory loss and prevent Parkinson-like symptoms, researchers reported at the Society for Neuroscience meeting underway in San Diego.

 

The findings — some in animals, some in people — suggest that people may be making a mistake if they're relying primarily on crossword puzzles and brain-training games for mental wellness.
