Positive mental and emotional health requires that the mind and attitude be flexible instead of rigid. When our thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes are rigid, it’s easy for one negative word or conviction that is contrary to ours to break our spirit. When we cling tightly to a fixed idea of how things “should” be, we automatically assume a prideful, defensive stance that invites challenge and confrontation. An adaptive, flexible mental state, on the other hand, allow for multiple perspectives and give you the choice to choose the healthiest from a calm place of observation and responsiveness. Stay flexible by writing down a few possible scenarios for how a situation could play out or how a problem could be solved, distract yourself with a puzzle or some music, or another mental break, when you notice you’re “stuck” mentally, and look for the silver lining when things don’t go how you’d like them to.
