Mental Toughness Exercise

“5 Powerful Exercises to Increase Your Mental Strength”

Today I want you to try one of Forbes’ 5 Powerful Exercises to Increase Your Mental Strength. The one exercise I want you to focus on is “Practicing Tolerating Discomfort”. The idea is to eventually get to a place when you can acknowledge your emotions but you are not controlled by them. This way you can continue to challenge yourself and complete your goals or make personal gains! One way to help you work on this mental process is to step out of your comfort zone and experience discomfort. Maybe that means trying a new machine you have been eyeing for a month or small-talking to another member at the gym who you see frequently. These small steps might lead to bigger gains of progressing farther in the gym or gaining a new fitness partner to chat with about nutrition and fitness.

 “Some discomfort is often necessary for greater gain, and tolerating that discomfort will help make your vision a reality, one small step at a time” (forbes).
