Become confident

Say no

A research at UC Berkeley showed that when a person has more difficulty in saying no they are more likely to experience burnout and depression. A mentally strong person knows when it is healthy to say no. They know how to exert self-control by saying no to themselves.

Don’t dwell on your mistakes

The fact is where you focus your attention determines your emotional state. And the mentally strong individuals have accepted this fact. They avoid fixating on problems because it creates and prolongs negative emotions. Mentally strong people don’t forget their mistakes but move on in order to rectify it. They learn, adapt and adjust for the future.

Neutralize the difficult people

Mentally strong people keep their feelings in check and don’t allow anger or frustration fuel the chaos. They are able to consider the difficult person’s standpoint and try to find solutions. They never let the difficult person take up much of their thoughts or bring them down.

Get enough sleep

When you sleep your brain actually removes toxic proteins which are caused due to neural activity during when you’re awake. And your brain can only adequately remove them when you are asleep. Thus it is necessary for you to get enough sleep to be able to increase your ability to think rationally and make you mentally strong. You lose self-control and focus when you don’t get adequate sleep.
