the brand girls: mind over matter – how to build Mental strength

We’ve all had those days where nothing seems to go right. It’s 2 PM at the office and nowhere near time to go home for the day. You’re slumped over your desk, your to-do list at your internship is growing by the minute, and you just realized you’re late for a meeting. 

It can feel like you just need to crawl into bed and start focusing on networking and personal branding again tomorrow. Don’t give up just yet, The Brand Girls has three quick ways you can build mental strength and push through it instead:

PAUSETake a second to take a break, close your eyes and allow your mind to be still.

BREATHE: Time Magazine shares the results of a study on breathing patterns, which found that breathing actually has the power to change the mind or state of the mind. Wow! What more of a reason do you need to stop and take a deep breath right now?

REMEMBER PERSPECTIVE IS EVERYTHING: Inc.com lists perspective as one of their 18 Powerful Ways to Build Your Mental Toughness and at The Brand Girls we couldn’t agree more. 

It’s easy to get caught up + overwhelmed in the moment, but rest assured that it’s just a moment. Remember that in the grand scheme of things, this one moment probably won’t be make it or break it. Stay focused and conquer the day!
