Mental agility: A key ingredient for mental toughness

Change is tough. When you have a concrete plan, or even a rough idea of how something should unfold, you may perceive obstacles as a threat - and buckle under the pressure.

One characteristic of a mentally tough person is their ability to recognize challenges as neutral, make the necessary adjustments in a timely manner, and get back in the game. Instead of letting the stress consume them, they demonstrate resilience - leaning in to the change, making shifts, and moving on.

So, how do you do that?

Do you ever feel like you need space? Space to grow, space to think, and space to create? There’s a reason why so many artists and writers escape the city to find quiet when they embark upon a new project. They’re finding a peaceful environment in which they can carve out space in their mind for creative thoughts. There’s something to that, but you don’t necessarily have to go on a solo retreat in the woods to find that space.
