ENHANCE YOUR MENTAL WELLBEING (1)
Read: PROVERBS 4:20–27
“Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life” (Proverbs 4:23).
Today is World Mental Health Day. Here are some ways to enhance your mental wellbeing:
Be very selective of who you permit into your personal space. Avoid people who dispense negativism. They will drain your internal power —your hope, self-belief, resilience, and optimism.
Do not let people’s actions determine your emotions and actions. People do not make you angry, they just do what they do, and you react as you will. Since your action determines your outcomes, you are letting others determine the outcomes you get out of life.
Do not wait for apologies before forgiving an offence. You may be waiting for a long time. Suppose they never apologise?
Be responsible for your life and actions. Own your experiences. Cherish the good, change the bad, accept what you cannot change. Strive to become financially independent and avoid depending on others for your existence, otherwise they will control your life.
Assert yourself when you should. It is wise to know when to speak and when to be silent. The bible says do not answer a fool according to his folly, lest you be like him, in the next verse it says answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his conceit (Proverbs 26:4–5). When people mistreat you, let them know. We teach others how to treat us.
Never compare yourself with anybody. Be unapologetically who you are.
Lastly, guard your heart with all diligence. The battle is always first lost in the mind. Feed your mind with the word of God and avoid unwholesome content. As a man thinketh in his heart so is he (Proverbs 23:7).
