Mental you (your thoughts) is your knowledge, attitude, and beliefs, your annalistic self.

Be aware of your thoughts – which thoughts make you smile and feel good, and which bring a frown or cause your muscles to tighten.

  • Explore new ideas. Find a hobby, take a class, read a nonfiction book, watch educational television.
  • Cultivate positive attitudes. Instead of criticizing, catch yourself and others at being good. Look for what is positive in a situation.
  • Examine your beliefs. Listen to others point of view. When others disagree with you, try to see things through their eyes.
