What are the things you practice regularly to support your mind?
Do you have non-negotiable anchors in your day that allow you to be at your best?
Consider the activities that are of the most importance to keep you mentally healthy. These could be meditating, a workout, eating healthy or reading a book – identify the activities that form a part of a daily ritual, the things that anchor your day and make sure you can be at your best.
Begin with looking at the 2 or 3 activities that provide the biggest impact to how you feel everyday and make sure you set these as your key anchors that must be fulfilled to ensure you feel mentally and physically on point.

I look at life like the waves across the seas. Sometimes we are rising high and having a great time and other times we are crashing, falling and struggling.
These motions come and go as the waves will rise again after they have fallen and will of course fall again. This is a continual cycle and is much like life, we have our ups and we have our downs, yet we always know that this is part of the process.
So when you have dark days, remember to tell yourself that like the waves in the sea, you can rise once more.
Honestly you can. Mentors aren’t just people you have to meet in person, they can be the authors of the books you read, the hosts of the podcasts you listen to.
“Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.”
It’s surprising how some things never change in this world, especially when it comes to human behaviour and the suffering we put ourselves through.
I find many times in life, especially in the variety of challenges and curveballs that are thrown our way – that the only way to get out of our problems and challenges is through them.
Facing your problems and challenges, instead of running from them is normally the only way to overcome them and grow.
Take if from someone who deals with a fair share of their own demons daily. Running and hiding from challenges and problems only makes it worse, yet finding the courage to say screw it and face what’s in front of you head on, will change your outlook on what you can do.
Next time life throws something your way, just remind yourself – the only way out is through.
