Managing your mental state is ongoing and perhaps now more than ever we feel the effect of all the things that can affect us in a negative way. Whether we are dealing with small inconveniences to larger, more involved problems. Our state of mind is a compilation of our past, present, and future thoughts and feelings. When times are tough, whatever the reasons may be, managing your mental state is more important than ever. 

Self-awareness is first when it comes to managing mental state. When you understand how you feel, where those feelings are coming from, and why you have those particular feelings, then can you begin to manage your mental state. This is much easier said than done for most people and that’s perfectly normal. A counselor or psychologist may be able to help you understand your feelings more in-depth. Talking with someone objective to help put your feelings in perspective is extremely beneficial as well. Once you identify why you feel a certain way, you can begin to understand your feelings and manage them in a positive way.

Mindfully breathing is a powerful calming tool.  Breathing in through the nose and out through the mouth will slow heart rate and curb anxiousness. Moreover, meditation will aid in clarity of mind. Fifteen minutes per day to sit in silence and clear your head does wonders for your mental state.

Positive affirmations also enhance one’s state of mind. Positive affirmations are positive phrases you repeat to yourself daily. Try talking to yourself in the mirror in the morning. Tell yourself things like, “I am confident.” or “I am relaxed and at peace.” These positive affirmations will sink into your subconscious mind. Over time, you will start to believe the positive statements you have repeated to yourself. You can change your cognitive patterns away from negative thinking.

Don’t give in to the quick fix of self-medication. Using alcohol or drugs is not uncommon when people want to make themselves feel better. But when faced with adversity, adding mind-altering substances will enhance negative feelings. Stay sharp and in tune with yourself. So that you are able to be positive and consciously manage your feelings.

While some of this can be managed on your own, there is no reason you should need to. Seek support from a professional trained to support your mental health!

Staying on top of your mental health is not an easy task. When faced with challenges throughout life, remember there are tools that can be utilized. Actively managing your mental state will result in a more self-aware, calm, and happier you.
