Life doesn’t change simply because the calendar flipped to a new month.
The practice of mental agility is like building a muscle. It takes time, repetition, and the willingness to be in discomfort to achieve growth.
5 tips for practicing mental agility:
To build mental agility, purposefully step outside your comfort zone. It will align your brain to accept discomfort as a part of life instead of avoiding it.
Instead of limiting your thinking with the first solution that comes to mind, challenge your brain to seek multiple answers.
Expand your creative thinking skills by challenging assumptions, gaining knowledge outside your domain and creating mental space for new ideas to kick in.
Consciously shift your mental energy to things within your control. It stops rumination and leads to action.
Finally, none of this is possible if you don’t believe in your ability to change. Believe in the power of a growth mindset and practice strategies to get there.
