What do you do when you are tired?
What happens when your body and mind is exhausted but you know you must push on?
Our physical condition and fitness provides us the bodily energy we need to press ahead while our mental fortitude is the drive that keeps our mind on track when our reserves start running on low.
Therefore, it is vitally important that you develop ways to continuously build and strengthen your mental tenacity. Although it’s hard for most of us to commit to regular exercise, we all know what we should do to become physically fit and healthy. However, many people don’t know where to start when it comes to getting some mental exercise.
Well, here are three simple suggestions:
- Continuously explore ways of doing things you have done many times before in new, creative and different ways.
- In downtime, develop your mind and memory with brainteasers such as Sudoku, crossword puzzles and chess.
- Learn to always laser focus your actions on only one thing at a time and remain focused until you have completed the task on hand.
Like the Wildebeest, endurance, whether physical or mental, requires people to train hard, develop new behaviors and build strong proficiencies. Overcoming any big challenge is always easier when you are prepared – both physically and mentally!
