How can you increase physical strength

Activate inner strength

Every person has inner strength from birth. It describes the psychological resilience to master difficult situations, life crises and stress phases. The technical term for this is resilience. In the course of our lives, this inner strength is put to the test again and again. It supports us in mastering crises or difficult situations and often even emerges stronger from them.

But even if everyone has inner strength, it can happen that this is temporarily unavailable. If, for example, negative experiences suddenly occur or stressful phases of life predominate for a long time, it is not always easy to maintain inner strength and to survive such stressful situations without any problems. Then it can happen that the mental equilibrium gets out of whack. This can be explained particularly clearly using the model of the “5 pillars of identity”. After that, the mental equilibrium rests on five pillars. If one of these pillars starts to falter, this endangers the psychological balance and, as a result, also your own inner strength.

Guide to inner strength and stability

When inner strength is weakened, it must be rebuilt. To do this, everyone should choose the strategy that suits them personally, which will enable them to regain new stability. The guide to activating inner strength and stability consists of three essential steps:

  • Step 1: realization
  • Step 2: information
  • Step 3: activity

The first step is to recognize the problem that leads to health impairment. Which of the five pillars of identity is weakened and affecting equilibrium? Which situation burdens me so much and why? The answers to these questions can help to better and more realistically assess the condition. The question of the typical symptoms also helps to analyze the stress situation and identify the disruptive factor.

When the personal situation has been analyzed and the burden recognized, the second step, the information phase. Here, those affected can find out about their situation and find suitable strategies to tackle the problem. The strength guide offers helpful support. It is a guide that provides detailed information on psychological stressful situations, symptoms, causes and treatment options and offers numerous possible solutions.

Step 3 denotes the phase of the activity. Now it is time to act and start individual and holistic measures. The possibilities for this are diverse: exercise, relaxation techniques, conscious stress reduction and psychotherapy are ideally suited here. Also a herbal medicine like Sedariston®, should be part of a holistic treatment. Above all, the combination of non-medicinal and medicinal measures makes it possible to activate inner strength and alleviate discomfort.

Everyone has inner strength. In phases of high stress it can happen that we have to remember it first. Support your inner strength with these 10 tips in everyday life:

  1. analysis
    How do you react in phases of higher stress? How does the stress make you physically noticeable? Are you showing any physical symptoms? Answering these questions can help you to react better in such situations and to avoid prolonged exposure from the outset.
  2. social environment
    Family and friends are important - they back us up, are there for us, listen to us. Share your problems, thoughts, and concerns with people around you. A lot can be cleared from the world if we just talk about it.
  3. Strengths and weaknesses
    Recognize your strengths - and accept your weaknesses. Everything doesn't always have to be perfect and done immediately. Take pride in what you are good at and do it regularly.
  4. I-times
    Schedule regular times when you can concentrate fully on yourself. For example, take meals consciously at the table. Make yourself comfortable on the sofa, read a good book, listen to relaxing music - all by yourself, just yourself. In such moments you can consciously recharge your inner strength.
  5. Listen to yourself
    Start by being aware of your needs. Learn to listen to yourself to know what you want - and what you don't want. That includes saying no.
  6. optimism
    The body reacts to our thoughts. So every thought is followed by a physical reaction. Bad thoughts make the stress hormones react. Therefore, practice positive thinking, be optimistic and reverse your negative thoughts into positive ones.
  7. Note successes
    Are you proud of how you mastered a task or a particular situation? OK then! But don't forget: Success has to be celebrated. For example, by writing them down. This way you can remind yourself of them again and again. Your inner strength will benefit from it.
  8. Restful sleep
    At night the body rests, recovers from the impressions of the day and recharges your batteries so that you can start the next morning fit. Make sure you have fresh air and a comfortable temperature in the bedroom. Better to avoid alcohol and caffeine, as well as heavy foods, before bed.
  9. Healthy eating
    A healthy diet is the basis for a healthy organism. Eat a balanced diet with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Drink enough water. You should only consume luxury foods such as coffee or alcohol sparingly.
  10. accept help
    Is the burden growing over your head? Don't be afraid to ask for and receive help. For example, contact your family doctor, a psychotherapist or your pharmacist. Together you will find a solution for your situation.
