Simple exercises to develop mental toughness

Mental toughness’ is that part of you that determines – to a large extent – how you handle challenges, pressure, and stress, regardless the circumstances you’re in.

Building mental toughness is all about discovering the courage to live and being bold enough to define your success. It will help you develop resilience to life’s unavoidable obstacles. This article points out to some everyday exercises that can help you develop mental toughness.

Develop good habits

With good habits, you are prepared for whatever may come your way.

There is one thing that fit, successful, and rich people have in common and that is they build habits that help them reach their goals.

Growing to be a strong person takes mindfulness and practice. You need to replace your bad habits with new habits (Good), and learn to get out of your own way.

Learn to forgive

Forgiveness allows you to forget your failures of the past and focus on the future. Do not let the fact that you slipped make you feel bad. Being too hard on yourself just because you messed up with something isn’t the way to go.

Thomas Edison once said, “Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up”.


Most people will never accomplish their goals, not because they don’t have the resources they need but they can’t push away distractions.

Your goals should become your first priority. It is obvious that you may not be in control over some the challenges or obstacles you come across in life but you’re totally accountable for the quantity of time you’re going to devote before gaining your focus back on track.


Patience helps you avoid hasty decisions in life. Nowadays, most people forget to be patient and get pissed off with minor things.

While desiring to accomplish your goals, you might get intimidated by a huge task needed to achieve it. Divide your tasks into smaller steps and have a schedule to accomplish those steps. You will develop patience and at the same time achieve your goals in an organized manner.

Patience is one of the virtues everyone should possess.

As goes the popular truism, “one moment of impatience may destroy your whole life. One moment of patience may ward off great disasters”.

To better tackle life’s challenges, you need to surround yourself with a strong team, whether you are facing illness, lost a job, or fighting to keep your company afloat. Your mental toughness is also likely to be impacted (either positively or negatively) by the people closest to you. So make sure that your spouse, girlfriend, friends and colleagues are also doing something to boost their mental toughness.
