Going from Stress to Strength

Stress to Strength

When you hear the word strength, what type of strength do you think of? Is it physical strength or maybe mental or emotional strength? If you had to choose one, which one would you pick as your number one?

When you look at peoples’ actions the conclusion would be that most go for the physical strength. The reason why is because the amount of time people spend on looking good on the outside. But what about the inside,our mental health? Sick leave has gone through the roof when it comes to stress and mental illness and still we do not spend enough time on strengthening our inside, our “mental muscle.”

Dealing with Issues

During a day there are so many things and issues we have to deal with and not just our own. We have to find a way to cope with all the bad news we are constantly bombarded with on TV and social media. On top of that we might also deal with our friends’ problems and definitely problems within the family as well as your own.

Mental Strength

This is where mental strength becomes important and to have coping strategies that we can use when life hits us. For me it has been vital to use the skills that I have learnt for the past 30 years as I started early on realizing the importance of mental strength. It has helped me through many tough times in life where I have lost close friends and colleagues to cancer, and in my own family both my father and my husband.

To be able to have that mental strength to hold onto and to know that no matter what happens and how much you get shaken up, you will always have a strategy to deal with it. The strength is inside yourself and it is always there if you calm your mind and sit with it.

Emotional Strength

The emotional strength is also important as we are emotional beings. We are supposed to feel all sorts of feelings and emotions. Some more joyful than others. In my last blog I wrote about repressed anger. I have also written about fear in an earlier blog. It is important to learn how to deal with the emotions that wears you down day after day.

To be stuck in emotions is to be stuck in the past and that is not where you want to dwell for long periods of time. Therefore you should acknowledge your feelings and see them for what they are. You might need to ask for help to take the trauma and drama out of stuck emotions if you feel you obsess about them.
