4 Ways to Boost Your Mental Toughness
We’ve all seen those guys and girls who can walk into any situation and come out on top. They always seem cool, calm, and collected. Are these people born with special talents? Not at all. They just know how to boost their level of mental toughness to be able to take on anything life throws at them.
There are two ways that you can train your mental toughness: Through mental exercises and through physical exercises. When you train your mind and body together, the results will be much higher than you ever expected. Let’s take a look at the top 4 ways you can dramatically boost your mental toughness.
- Learn to Ignore
We all seem to forget that nothing is in our control. When something goes wrong or not according to plan, many people freak out, causing themselves an incredible amount of stress, which is the complete opposite of cool, calm, and collected.
You have to practice learning to accept those things you can’t control. You can’t control the weather so why get angry when it rains on your parade? Learn to swim with the current and embrace the chaos.
- Increase Physical Discomfort Gradually
In order to train your mind to get tougher, you need to toughen up your body. You can do this in a number of ways but one of the most effective ways is through resistance training. Whether you choose classical weight training, CrossFit, TRX, kickboxing, or some other form, resistance training will help you to build better neuromuscular connections. You’ll feel better in your own body and more in control. Be sure to gradually increase the resistance so you can keep boosting that toughness.
- Make Yourself Uncomfortable
The best way to prepare yourself for uncomfortable situations is to intentionally put yourself in them. This is one of the fastest ways to making yourself ready to handle anything. Are you afraid to start conversations with strangers? Go out with a mission. Force yourself to speak with a set number of people each day. It can be 5, 10, or even 20. The more you practice, the better you’ll get.
- Wear a Sauna Suit
If you want to toughen up your mind and body simultaneously, the Kutting Weight sauna suit is the best way to do it. Mental toughness is all about putting yourself through manageable discomfort. The sauna suit safely increases your body’s internal temperature in a way that allows you to be in control. It will allow you to push yourself outside of your comfort zone but not in a dangerous or out of control way. You can gradually increase the time you spend inside the suit, helping your body to safely adjust while improving your mental toughness self-talk.
While your mind and body are getting tougher, you’ll also be able to enjoy the multitude of benefits that the neoprene sauna suit delivers including weight loss support, endurance boosting, and heat acclamation.
