Los Angeles, CA – 2/13/2014—
Eating well, exercise, and keeping track ofphysical fitness are important parts of staying healthy, but more and moreresearchers are highlighting the importance of mental wellness as a keycomponent in overall health. Oneof the best ways to improve mental well-being is to practice loving oneselfphysically and mentally.
One way to improve mental well-being is towork on increasing confidence. Wecan do this by practicing positive thinking. Over 60,000 thoughts pass through the brain each day, andit’s estimated that many of these are focused on the negative: stress at work,too much to do at home, guilt for overindulging at dinner. Change the focus to what we’veaccomplished, or what our strengths are, can be difficult at first, but withpractice it becomes easier and can not only reduce stress, but can increaseconfidence as well.
Self-confidence is about finding self-worthwithin ourselves at all times in numerous ways. When we start appreciating the little things we do for ourhealth, big changes can happen. Praise the legs for walking across the office to talk to a co-workerrather making a call, or thank the body for taking a walk over lunch ratherthan staying a desk. Smallcompliments can add up and increase confidence and where it comes from.
Another tip for maintaining confidence isfeeding and treating the body well. Appreciate the body for where it’s at and its constant quest for improvement. Find workouts that are fun bothphysically and mentally, and try to let go of the need for perfectionism. Life doesn’t have to be consistentlyharmonious to be good – when we stop chasing that unachievable goal ofperfection, we can accept what matters and focus on the positive aspects of thepresent.
Mental health is an important part of overallwellness, and just as we work to improve nutrition and physical capabilities,it’s important to exercise our minds to be healthy as well.
