Self-help: Understanding The Psychology Behind

Self-help and Psychology:

Self-help may sound like a foreign culture to most of us. Nowadays, we spend so much time changing other people- like inspiring teammates, encouraging employees, and teaching youngers how to behave?. But, making the world better, these days usually means to change other’s way of life. The old theories of self mastering, self-authority faded to a large extent in this era.

What Self-help actually is?

Self-help means focusing on how to improve yourself by applying positive and long-lasting changes, that we have learned from our life so long. Here you improve your mental, physical and intellectual level.

Handling your own, trouble time situations by delivering control over your mind and body in order to improve the consequences of the situation is self-help. It involves changing our way of reaction, way of acting, affection, and mentality.

Most of us, are helping our self most of the time. We plan we implement, we execute, we monitor, we imagine to break down conditions and situations…all this is self-help.

What is not Self-help?

  • Commonly responding to a matter.
  • Getting a solution to a situation by luck.
  • Saying ourselves, that we are delivering our best.
  • It is not leading towards the wrong route by our emotions.
  • It is not getting medical healing, therapy, or reading blogs/books of self-help.

Steps Towards Self-help

There is a strong bonding between our mind and body. Physical self-help means, how you are treating your body? means, what you are feeding to your body? how much time you are taking rest on the bed?…paying attention to physical needs and your involvement in physical activities.

Taking medicines on time, regular health check-ups, monitoring and managing your health situations properly are also part of physical self-help. So Eat healthily, move your body, create a zen space to live, and get enough rest.
