8 Powerful Resiliency Tools To Stay Mentally Strong

Some people make it through tough times, and bounce back stronger. Be one of those people with these 8 powerful resiliency tools to stay mentally strong.

Feeling stressed, depressed, pissed off and/or pissed on?

No worries!

Here are 8 best resiliency tools to help you stay mentally strong.

Resiliency Tool 1: Ask depressing questions, get depressing answers!

For example, there are no happy answers to questions like…

  • “Why didn’t I?”
  •  “What if?”
  • “Why me?”
  • “What if my fear comes true?”

These are all time wasters and downward spiralers.

Hence, you must stop them and swap them with these positively focused questions:

  • “How can I learn from this?”
  • “What can I do now to make my life better?”
  • “Who can I surround myself with today to make my life happier?”
  • “What can I do to relax?”
  • “Where should aim my thoughts and habits to be stronger and calmer?”

Resiliency Tool 2: Feeling means you’re dealing means your healing.

Confront, tolerate and feel your pain. If you can do this, the pain will eventually get smaller and ultimately disappear.

But don’t push yourself to move on too quickly–you have to nurture your wounds appropriately.

If you don’t like to express your suffering out loud, keep a journal. Dig deep into your feelings by writing them out.

Resiliency Tool 3: Turn off the tube.

Watching TV produces low levels of satisfaction because it doesn’t challenge you.

Instead, do something that raises your self-esteem. Tap into your ‘signature strengths’–things you’re good at or passionate about.

Or read a good book!

Resiliency Tool 4: Step outside yourself.

Volunteering is a great way to look outside your own problems.

Giving back makes you happier by both…

  • giving you a sense of purpose
  • helping to put your problems in perspective

Resiliency Tool 5: Get a ‘mental rental.’

Sit in a quiet place and consciously think about optimistic future goals or happy memories.

Make a list of five great moments from your past and five future events you’re psyched about. Envision as much detail as you can. What are you wearing? How are you standing? What scent is in the air?

By tapping into positive thoughts, you can actually change your body chemistry.

Resiliency Tool 6: Keep perspective.

The hard time you may be experiencing is merely a ‘slice’ of your life – not your whole life.

Think about your future — and realize that you don’t want your life to be defined by this one circumstance.

Keep a gratitude journal to remind yourself of everything you do have in your life – rather than what’s missing.

You may even ‘bounce back’ higher because you’ll learn to appreciate other important things in your life.

Resiliency Tool 7: Change your mood with food.

During difficult times, it’s best to cut down on sweets like cookies, cake and candy. Sugar is bad for you energy, mood and even your ability to think at your best. Satisfy your sweet tooth with fruit to help prevent blood sugar dips and spikes.
