Hey guys! Welcome back. We talk about physical health goals, goals in our career and personal lives, and goals in other areas. But when it comes to mental health I think goals are often looked over because we aren’t sure exactly how to set goals in that area. So today I wanted to share with you my current mental health goals. These are things I am striving everyday to work towards and grow to have better mental health. So here are my mental health goals.
1. Protect myself from people who refuse to grow.
One way I did this was by ending my last relationship. But there are other people in my life that I need to let go of and protect myself from. Because being around people who don’t want to grow affects my motivation and persistence in growing. It is important for me to be around people who are also working to grow.
2. Cut the “devil’s advocate” in my mind and don’t accept it from others.
The devil’s advocate is one of the worst things in my mind. It’s always convincing me not to do things because something else might happen or it might not work. But the truth is, I won’t know until I try. So I have to let go of that mentality and not accept when others try to convince me the worst could happen.
3. Be proud of all my accomplishments, even the small ones.
I have a really hard time being proud of myself. Even if I do something really big and I accomplish something huge, it is so hard for me to be proud of myself. So I really work to write down my accomplishments and keep record of them. This helps me remember that I am doing great things and I should be proud.
4. Seek happiness everyday.
Being happy is sometimes really difficult. Either I forget to do it or I’m in a head space that just won’t allow me to be happy. So I try to seek happiness everyday. Whether it is taking a few moments to write down what I am grateful for, watching something that makes me feel good, or doing something I need to do, happiness is key.
5. Break away from the things I think I should have by a certain time.
I think we often live life by a timeline. Like by a certain age we should have certain things done. By a certain time we should have certain things. But that’s just no way to live. Everyone’s timeline is not the same. We don’t live life the same way others do. Our actions, decisions, and minds are different.
