By saying “I can’t”, you’re creating powerlessness, one of the hardest mental blocks to overcome.
You have decided your potential is limited, and have given up on yourself before even trying. Working to make your goals a reality, you can learn more about yourself and figure out your possibilities.
Your friends choose to be a part of your life, and they are your biggest fans. If you need a pep talk, just give them a call or text during the day, and they are sure to encourage you.
Don’t be afraid to ask for help, you might just find out that some are worth even more than just a good time.
Your brain needs glucose, oxygen, and fluids to perform at its best. These mental blocks are easily solved by listening to your body’s demands.
If you are feeling frustrated, try grabbing a glass of water and a couple of snacks. Re-evaluate how you feel 10-15 minutes after consuming both fuel sources, and you’ll probably realize you feel much better.
Sleep is something that your body and mind need to be able to recuperate and combat stress on a daily basis. Some function relatively well with a few hours of sleep every night, but most need at least eight hours of sleep a day.
If you feel you are at the end of your ability to handle stressors, try taking a nap or going to bed early that night.
If your head hurts from trying to solve issues, take a small break. Doing this can reset your mind and clear the mental blocks that have been building throughout the day.
Walk away from the situation for a minimum of 10 minutes and close your eyes. Start relaxing your muscles from forehead to feet. Picture yourself somewhere else.
Your mood and health will suffer, as well as your belief in yourself if you set yourself unrealistic goals.
Dividing a larger goal into bite-sized chunks will make it a lot easier to digest throughout the years.
There are stagnant periods in life, but you don’t have to remain stuck for long.
It may not add progress to your current life goal, but try donating your time to an organization that interests you. The surroundings and people working with you could provide inspiration to push you past your current mental blocks, while you are likely doing the same for them.
Acting while your mind is in a state of unrest can result in people being hurt physically and emotionally. Once you’ve calmed down, it will most likely hurt you in return.
After you’ve cooled off, try discussing the problem to resolve whatever issue is bothering you.
Contributing factors to mental fatigue are poor nutrition, lack of sleep, hormonal imbalances, or cognitive overload. Cognitive overload can take the following forms:
Again, you may claim that you don’t have the time, but consider that catching up on social media or email is really allowing others to dictate what you do with your time.
Spend a few more minutes in your “me” zone, and you’ll be surprised at how much more energy and time you feel you have when you do finally have to face the world.
If you feel overwhelmed by how little you have progressed, switch to working on mindless tasks that require little attention and allow the mind to wander. Wash the dishes, organize your bookshelf, or do laundry.
By accomplishing small wins, you develop momentum and confidence to overcome your mental block.
