You don’t have to let a bad day disable you. There are mental fitness exercises you can use to turn your bad experience around for the better and put you back on your A-game.

No matter if you’re having an off day or not, meditation is a simple and effective way to calm your mind and give it clarity.  Just a few minutes of meditation a day can help to equip you to handle any challenge life throws at you.

• While there are many meditation methods, one of the simplest and most effect is taking deep, intense breaths. Using this mental fitness exercise, within 5 to 10 minutes your mind will become calm and you’ll feel renewed and rejuvenated.

• You can also             put in one of your favorite yoga DVDs. Yoga is a form of meditation and 30 minutes to an hour of following these techniques can help your mind and body relax. You can do the same using Tai Chi exercises.

• If you just want to take it easy, fill your bathtub with warm water, add a few drops of lavender, and just allow yourself to relax as you soak in the peacefulness of your bath.

2. Laugh

The feeling of being overwhelmed is a direct result of the stress you’re putting yourself under. So instead of getting stressed, get some laughs.

Even if you’re not able to identify the particular stressor that’s overwhelming you, a wonderful and fun way to eliminate its effects is simply getting some laughs!

• Go to Netflix or rent a blockbuster comedy from your cable company. Make the time to watch it from beginning to end. Talk about a mental fitness exercise. When you’re through you’ll experience clarity and mental alertness like never before!

• Have some friends come over or get together and talk about some funny things that have happened to you. Your heartfelt laughs will help you feel recharged and ready to take on the world.

3. Do Some Mental Exercises           

Your brain likes to work so let it. Not only will putting your brain to work distract you from whatever is stressing you out, it will also get your mind ticking again. Like all tools, the mind works best when it’s working, so go ahead and put it to work!

• Go to your local bookstore and pick up a book of crossword puzzles or Sudoku games and spend some time solving them.

• Sports and games, even video games can also help. Anything that requires intense hand-eye coordination engages your mind and helps your mental fitness.

4. Check What You’re Eating           

One factor that many people overlook is their diet. Certain foods have been found to sharpen the mind. These foods can fortify your brain and help you make it through those rough days. In fact, if you had been eating these foods, you’d probably have come out feeling victorious instead of like you’re on the brink of a breakdown!

• Antioxidants are known to be very beneficial for the brain so eat foods and drink liquids that contain them. Drink green tea or a smoothie made with Açaí berries, blueberry or pomegranate. You can also eat tomatoes, plums or peaches.  These foods and drinks can quickly return your mind to a state of sharpness.

• Studies have shown that omega-3 fatty acids are effective in promoting brain health. Eat fish like salmon, tuna, sardines and trout. They will help to restore your mental alertness (they’re also good for your heart health as well).
