Your Brain is a Muscle - Strengthen It!

Do you want to build your mental strength? How do you do it? What should you focus on? Go about building your mental strength like you would go about building muscle. It will make it easier to develop practical steps and help accomplish your goal. Here are a couple ideas to get you started:
1. Eat Healthy
A big part of building muscle strength and stamina is to pay attention to what you eat. It isn't enough to only stop eating junk food, you must also focus on eating healthy food.
Developing your mental strength is the same thing. You must quit feeding your brain junk and instead absorb things that are good for your brain. Watching television, even educational t.v. shows, do nothing to work your brain. In fact, it does the complete opposite. Sitting in front of the screen will cause your brain to atrophy, which means it will waste away.
If you stop watching t.v. that is a good first step. But the next step is to do something in place of watching t.v. that will build your brain. Reading is a good alternative, but if you are trying to build your mental muscle you have to read something that takes work to understand. Muscle only grows if you work it to the point of creating tiny tears. The same is true of the brain, you must work it to the point where it "hurts" a little bit.
2. Think Productively
Lifting the same weight and performing the same repetitions does very little for muscle development. That will keep your muscles in their current shape, but they won't grow stronger. You must challenge yourself to think beyond the same things you always think about. Next time you find yourself thinking about pointless stuff, find a problem in the world. Think about how you would solve it.
For example, think how you would respond to a current event if you were president. It's easy to bash someone's ideas and policies; it's quite another thing to come up with a better solution. Stretch yourself, look at the problem from all angles, and defend your idea against potential challenges.
This is merely the tip of the iceberg of ways you can build your mental strength. The great thing though is that once you start, you will find other ways to challenge yourself. You can work on your mental strength wherever you are and whatever you are doing. The only thing holding you back is you.
