Rebuilding a Healthy Mindset
July 31, 2017 - Author: Michigan State University Extension
It can be challenging to recover from crisis, and at times confusing to know how to move forward. When our lives feel out of control, we turn to coping skills that we have developed throughout our lives. Many of these skills are like Band-Aids being used to cover pain — a short-term answer. Unless we address our mindset, the source of this pain may never heal. Having the right mindset can help us get back on track when we lose our way, and improve stress management and our ability to handle change. It prepares us for tough times and makes us more able to take care of ourselves and our families. Think of your mindset as a free tool you can use to get the most out of each day and help manage the surprises and challenges that life can throw at you.
