Staying healthy through nutrition and workouts is the first step, I'm soooo happy I've been able to help you through this. Now we have to work on you staying mentally healthy.
Here are some tips.
1. Over the weekend cleanse yourself of the news. You can keep alerts on your phone but don't watch it.
2. Feed your mind with positivity. Maybe get a self-help book like The Power Of Now. I've recommended it to a lot of people.
3. Take this experience one day at a time. If you look too far ahead you will get anxiety so do the best you can do every day to get through it.
4. Don't feed your mind junk food. When you start thinking negative thoughts, replace it with a positive affirmation like - "I got this." Repeat that affirmation/mantra over and over again until you stop with the negative.
Thank you for opening up Linda. Does anyone else have any tips on how to stay mentally strong?
Sending you a big virtual hug!
