3. Reading Habit
It might seem a banal advice to you. But listen fella, there wasn’t any, there isn’t any and there will not be any alternative to reading books for turning out smart in the near future.
Reading books are like exercising the mind. In this 21st epoch, mobile phones, social media, mobile games, platforms like Netflix have occupied the place of reading books in our life but still, nothing can replace this beneficial habit. So, you better start constructing the reading habit as it soothes your mental health.
- If you are new to this habit, read at least one page a day at a specific time and slowly increase the quantity.
- A little step at a time will not be a burden on your shoulder and gradually will become a part of your life.
4. Selfish Time
Ups and downs moments are inherent to human beings. People with a strong mentality can overcome those hurdles in their life and rise to the summit of success. A conspicuous relation with oneself leads to a strong and positive perception of any uncertainty.
Heard about selfish time? Probably not. Well, This is the specialty of “Youth Rider”, from campus to corporate, from education to enlightenment, here you will receive those extraordinary notional facts that very few platforms would dare to talk about.
- “Selfish time” refers to reserving a certain amount of time in a day only for yourself.
- At least for 5 minutes in a day just try to get deluged inside you.
- In that period, engage yourself with those kinds of work that you are totally passionate about, this might be singing, painting, writing, or anything else.
- This manner will introduce yourself to your “Inner You”. But nowadays, the ability to spend quality time alone is considered to be an unwelcome concept among youths.
They have time for everyone in their daily routine but not for themselves. The absence of a transparent relationship of one with himself is a sign of a disorganized psyche, so try hard to get rid of that vicious cycle.
5. Personality development
You might have a dream personality like whom you want to shape your life. Then, you should follow them regularly. We had a copycat classmate back in school.
He was very determined to become “Salman Khan” when he grows up. He left no stone unturned to look or behave like him. All the time, he used to walk stretching this arm the way the actor does, although it was very uncomfortable for him to hold arms for so long like that.
We are not suggesting to follow someone like that. You must try to follow their values, moralities, and try to adopt similar qualities like them. In this matter, it is best for you to follow the religious leader of your religion as they are immaculate, pure.
This process will generate self-respect within yourself. The more you will transform like them, the more you will start loving yourself and self-love is key to mental well-being.
6. Law of gratitude
Human wants are unlimited in nature that’s what economics says and it is absolutely true. If one wants to get satisfied, another one pops out and this is the reason behind most of our unhappy feelings.
We want this, we want that, we are surrounded by wants all the time. With this type of idiosyncrasy , we forget to see the blessings that have been bestowed upon us.
We forget to show gratitude towards our Lord for His blessings. Ask yourself, when was the last time you felt gratefulness towards your Lord?. You don’t remember, do you?. Trust me, the law of gratitude can change your life.
Gratitude is a proven way to build good relationships with people. Be grateful towards everyone including your Lord, your parents, your siblings, neighbors, friends, everybody, and see how the atmosphere of your surroundings gets positively changed.
Every day before going to bed try to think about any positive incidents that had occurred to you. This habit can change your life along with your perception forever.
So, Let’s take a small step together to take care of your mental health. Let’s change our attitude towards a healthy mind.
Wishing you a very happy, successful, and prosperous life on behalf of “youthrider.com”.
