9 tips To Be Mentally Strong
We women are living in a world of many extraordinary women, a marvellous era where incredible changes are being brought about by women who perceive their influence. We are influencing lives abundantly. Nurture your mental health to be the mentally strong woman you are. A mentally strong woman doesn’t mean being pretty or admired. It is about your persona, to lead by example while nurturing yourself. Is it difficult to believe that each one of us has the strength? But we do. Never forget this, even when you are going through depression or anxiety. Remember and cherish the magnificent woman you are. Here are 9 tips To Be Mentally Strong.
Are mentally strong women born that way?
Mental Strength isn’t something you get from your genes. It stems from the desire to face any situation, and chin up. Many women belittle their accomplishments, anxious about making other women envy them. (I was the same) But there is no need to tone down or minimize your achievements to mollify.
Mentally strong women are humble and can wear their success nonchalantly. Their endeavours make them happy and they share them with absolute serenity. Their self-assurance helps them to steer clear of being domineering.
Expertise and brainpower play only a minor role. So what makes a bigger impact?
Mental Toughness! Studies disclose that your grit and determination help to accomplish your life, career, and health goals. Strength has a domino effect and strong women use that to empower the herd without sermonising or beseeching.
1. Be Self-assured
Confidence makes for an exceedingly large part of mental strength. Self-assurance emanates from self-love without comparing with others. Love yourself with passion and be at peace mentally. When we wear our confidence with ease, we share it easily. But confidence is an individual achievement.
2. Be Productive
Keep your mind occupied as it needs fodder to keep it happy. Make a to-do list of tasks and tick off those that you achieved. It will make you feel energized. Strong women look to prolong the list. Eventually, do this without pushing yourself to the edge. Know when to stop and smell the roses.
3. Be Positive
Be visionary and manifest things you want to achieve. Optimism and good vibes go hand in hand. The outlook should be such that your self-awareness leads to social awareness. Your optimism can sway the frame of mind of a pessimist.
4. Be an Achiever
Achievers manifest dreams into reality. They visualize the future and work towards making it happen with a positive mindset. Our minds thrive on creative and critical thinking. Chasing our dreams and working to make our powerful thoughts a wonderful reality is my definition of being a “go-getter,” and it is a great perspective to have!

9 tips To Be Mentally Strong
5. Be a Fear Fighter
What is FEAR? False Evidence Appearing real. Mentally strong women do not lay down their arms in the face of fear. Fear is a play of mind. Life is full of trials and tribulations. If you just brush them under the carpet, they will intensify. Conquer fear by emboldening your mind. Once you overcome your fears, your path to confidence becomes easy.
6. Be Empathetic
If you are mentally strong, it means you can take care of yourself. The magic is that you can care for others as well. Be kind to yourself and you will be kind to others. While doing this, we feel good about ourselves and we attract others to our happy selves. Empathy is like a boomerang. The universe returns it two-fold and makes you cheerful.
7. Be Proud
Being proud doesn’t mean being vain or arrogant. It is respecting and cherishing the miracle you are. We are each fabulous, divine, magnificent expressions of life. Sharing your achievements is not belittling others.
8. Be Your True Self-Done Fear “What Will People Say”
People make mistakes and say hurtful things, but a mentally strong woman can overcome the “haters” by ignoring those comments. Ignoring these messages is difficult, but it is possible. We never want to feel defined by others, so try not to be fazed by the negativity that other people might bring into our lives.
9. Build a Sisterhood
Build a sisterhood with a powerful community, combined with similar experiences or interests. A strong Sisterhood that is unconditional can help a woman sail through life through the strong emotional bonds that last a lifetime. A genuine Sisterhood rejoices in the happy times and props up and offers solace during distress and suffering. If we work together, it can empower us to be mentally strong and empower others.

The need to be mentally strong is as important as physical fitness. The duo will make us rock!
Be a sisterhood..absolutely. strong minded people are great influencers. Be yourself and be self assured is so important to be mentally healthy. great pointers.
Loved your post Harjeet… you’ve highlighted some really good points. I liked and could relate to so many one liners in your post… my fav one is, ‘Eventually, do this without pushing yourself to the edge. Know when to stop and smell the roses.’
Very good tips and really being strong woman we should take care of mental health. Our mind is always chattering and so it increase the stress. You mention nice points to take care of ourself. I need this.
I love it .. an Amazing post this is. I liked all your points and yes, building a sisterhood is a must… When we try to carry out specific actions for ourselves, whether it’s starting our own business, embarking on a new career path, or simply putting ourselves out there, we may experience feelings of overwhelm, burnout, or loneliness. Being a part of sisterhood can help you overcome these feelings and create a safe space for us to seek assistance with whatever we’re going through.
You are absolutely right. We are not born mentally strong. How we deal with experiences makes us strong. Another lovely post from you.
These are amazing pointers for any woman at any age. It is true no woman is born strong but she grows strong. Building your own sisterhood and encouraging others is the best way to give back to the society
Loved the post. Completely on point with being a fear fighter. Blocking out things just intensifies them. And we all need a strong sisterhood, a genuine one.
Very well articulated. In this day and age, with so much going on and the multitasking that women do, it is very important to be mentally strong. Sometimes it is only when faced with extreme situations does one know how strong one is….as aptly summed by your opening quote.
To-do lists are a very underrated form of magic, in my opinion!
Harjeet I just came to know about your loss through your comment on another post. Are you doing ok? I know it’s a lot easier to write about how to be mentally strong than to actually implement it in our own lives. Sending love and strength.
I like point 9 the best 🙂 A true believer of the strength of a community 🙂
our points are really good. Our mental strength helps us to resist being derailed by negative thoughts. It helps us get back into the ups and downs of life day after day. And — just like physical strength — it’s a kind of mental muscle that we can develop to improve our overall well-being.
These are very helpful pointers to follow to be mentally strong. If exercised correctly we can achieve this.
These are Some amazing points. If practised properly would help in long run
Being empathetic and building a sisterhood really resonate with me,
