Mindset is an all-encompassing word that describes your views, opinions, ideas, and motivations. It describes the way you see challenges or difficulties and how you might tackle problems. Mindset can set the tone for the day and determine whether it’s a good or bad one.

One way to get the right mindset is through mindset building exercises. Just as it becomes easier to lift weights after following a consistent training schedule, so too will it become easier to have a positive and resilient mindset when you put in the exercise to develop it.

To develop the right mindset, it can be helpful to create a plan for mindset building exercises. Unlike physical exercise, it’s not so obvious what you can do to exercise the mind. Consider the following tips when you are creating a plan for mindset building:
If you are doing the “work out” of mindset building, what are your specific exercises? They will look different for each person, but here are a few examples to consider:
