Those who think that they want to become healthy regularly exercise and care about eating but what to do in order to get " spiritual health " is impossible to grasp vaguely There should be some people say. So psychologist Ellen Hendriksen summarizes "Seven beliefs of mentally healthy people".

7 Beliefs of Emotionally Healthy People | Savvy Psychologist

◆ 1: Belief that "myself is progressing the right course" I believe that you are on the right course and believing that "what you are doing is not wrong" is "Grit Pull out power) "and" self-control ". The ability to pass something gives us the power to keep challenging difficult things to achieve big things. For example, the ability to pass through is important in order to continue studying fields that are not good for passing difficult qualifications, or take actions such as eating your own lunch box ahead of going to Starbucks to go on a trip .

On the other hand, the consciousness that you are walking the right course awakens self-control in a shorter period of time. It does not get frustrated even if you wait at the cashier or reception desk, and strong self-control is necessary to resist temptation of delicious food. Of course, everyone can lose the temptation, sometimes surfing the net with Daradara and consuming time unintentionally, or eating yummy new items. However, as a goal of life many things are impossible to accomplish by merely short-term efforts, it is important to keep exercising power and self-discipline on a daily basis like train musical training.

◆ 2: Belief that "I can do even things I do not want to do" <br> In many cases, when people think that they want to do, they start to do things they want to do. When I do not feel like that, I lie down on the bed or sofa and then wait for "I feel like" while watching the net or eating fast food. However, "Once you have started once even in things you do not want to do, the mood will come riding in while you are doing reluctantly" widely in recent years and it is said .

This ingenuity, "Do not wait for the mood to turn, move the body anyway" is particularly effective for "what you have experience in the past". Even if it is troublesome to move your body, try trying rock climbing for the time being or try playing the keyboard towards the piano anyway even if you do not have a feeling, you are absorbed in practice I may notice myself.

Hendriksen says that this method can also help "deal with fear". If you only do something that you do not fail 100%, you may improve on what you already can do, but you can not advance by acquiring skills you have not yet acquired. The way to put confidence in myself is to push yourself out from the "comfort zone", and even if you will feel anxiety and incompetence, it seems that it is the necessary pain that leads to growth.

◆ 3: Belief that "I can deal flexibly with things" <br> This belief makes it possible for people to deal with difficulties flexibly by challenging them. Life is full of many difficulties and obstacles, but people with spiritual health do not give up quickly, even if they fail with something, but adjust flexibly by adjusting things. Rather than give up if you fail in the test, reconsider your learning method and rechallenge the strength to be required for mental health.

Flexibility is not only relevant to behavior but it is also important when dealing with negative emotions such as anger, sorrow, despair. It is not sound to drown in sorrow, to self-hurt or drug, to touch alcohol, to distract from shopping or playing games.

Therefore, Mr. Hendriksen insists that it is important not to simply accept anger and sadness as it is, but to deepen the emotions seen in the table, to ascertain what emotions he has. It is important to look at other emotions such as fear, shame, guilt and just anger and sadness. Then, flexibility to emotion, such as relaxing and exercising consciously, slowly restoring the depressed mood, is necessary for mental health.

◆ 4: The belief that "everybody deserves respect " " Sirius Black , a character in the series" Harry Potter "series, says," If you want to know people, that person is more than you You should look closely at how to deal with those of the same size. "

In everyday life we see many people working for them, such as customer service receptionist, bus driver, building guard, drug store clerk. Of course they are paid, but Mr. Hendriksen points out that "money and respect is not an exchangeable thing", he says that it is important not to forget respect for people.

◆ 5: Belief of "Laughing myself" <br> The idea that anything must be a victor of life is too strict for myself and others, enriching life It is not. Everyone has things that you do not want to touch, embarrassing things, disadvantages that people can easily point out. Mr. Hendricksen says that laughing away such defects on its own will bring about mental health.

For example, Stephen King tells us, "My novel is like Big Mac and Fly," George W. Bush said in a lecture at Yale University "Everyone who achieved outstanding achievements, I worked hard Everyone whose grade was "C" you skipped a joke, you can become a US president. If you laugh off your own fault first, you can change your own failures and disadvantages to charm.


◆ 6: Belief that "myself is capable" Belief such as "I can do difficult things" "I can survive in any situation in my life" "I am capable" It is likely to be thought of as something like. However, thinking that "I do not have the ability" brings a lot of uneasiness to my life, so 50% of Hendriksen's treatment with the patient at my clinic regains confidence in people It is said that it is to do.

Then, where comes from the confidence that "I am competent" comes from, it comes from my own experience. To challenge new things, challenge new people, talk to unknown people, go to places you've never been, to have a faith in inspiring themselves in future life It leads to.

◆ 7: Belief of "I can love and deserve to be loved" I believe that you are a person worthy of being loved by people and that you can provide love in return for being given love, It is useful for health. In the study on adult development that Harvard University studied about 724 males over 75 years, at the time of my fifties, "a person with a sense of satisfaction feeling love and giving love" is the most happy even in his 80s I understood that.

Ultimately, being able to love someone and believing that you deserve to be loved by someone will connect with others. Mr. Hendriksen said that this love connection will bring happiness to people's lives and bring mental health.
