  • Feed Your Mind

Building a powerful mind is all about the available information stored in your mind. Your mind’s made up of what you consume mentally. Your eyes and your ears are the gateways to your mind. The difference between the mentally powerful and the mentally weak is the type of data stored in their minds. Some people spend a great deal of time-consuming dangerous materials such as pornography, bad news, depressing and suicidal songs, and other visuals and audio. On the other hand, powerful people spend a great deal of time reading self-help and educational books and listening to mentally refreshing and thought-provoking materials. Feeding your mind is a deliberate and conscious effort.

Exercise improves mental health by reducing anxiety, depression, and negative mood and by improving self-esteem and cognitive function. According to PMC, exercise has also been found to ameliorate signs such as low self-esteem and social isolation. It creates happier moods. Physical activity discharges feel-good hormones that make you feel better about yourself and give you more energy. It can help in managing stress, anxiety, or intrusive and racing thoughts – doing something physical releases cortisol which helps us manage stress.
  • Have A Good Sleep

One wise man once said, “sleep is a superpower”. This is super true. Joseph Cossman once said, “The best bridge between despair and hope is a good night’s sleep.” The health implications of sleep cannot be overemphasized. According to WebMD, sleep plays a big role in both learning and memory. Without enough sleep, it’s difficult to focus and take in new information. Your brain also doesn’t have enough time to properly store memories so you can pull them up later. Sleep lets your brain catch up so you’re ready for what’s next. Furthermore, medical professionals at WebMD, have suggested that most adults need 7 to 9 hours. There are cases where people may need as few as 6 hours or as many as 10 hours of sleep each day.  Featured Image Source: A Day Without Smoking
