7 Signs You Are Mentally Well (Number 3 is my favorite)


Do you ever question your sanity? Good. Doing so is a sign of mental wellbeing.

You know how much strength and discipline it took to build a safe mental space where you can thrive. This is why you protect your well-being.


Circumstances alone do not make you healthy or well. Through your attitude, you define the events of your life. Mindset makes or breaks you.

How do you know you are mentally sane?

1. You Feel Good Physically.

The mind and the body are not separate entities. They go hand in hand.

Good physical health is a reflection of a healthy mind. Your gut is your second brain.

Anxiety is strongly associated with poor gut health. Stress is the culprit for why we reach out for comfort food.

2. You know that stress can be minimized by the healthy choices you make.

This is why you enjoy physical activity that suits you. You are not hitting the gym to show off or prove others wrong. You want to take care of your body for the sake of your mind.

You eat a balanced diet. Instead of following trends, you mindfully choose what serves your body and makes you feel nourished. Good mental health is also eating that cheesecake when you crave it. After all, balance is key.

You prioritize sleep because you realize that a rested body is a rested mind.

3. You Know Failure Is Not a Tragedy.

Mentally strong people don’t view failure as the end of the road.

One of the hallmarks of mental agility is the ability to handle ambiguity. Instead of creating problems, you look for solutions.

4. You are confident in your skills even if there are areas you need to work on.

You don’t succumb in the face of challenges, but you build resilience and persist by focusing on things you can control. Mentally strong people view their goals as a marathon, not a sprint.

Seeing rejection as a redirection makes for a successful mindset. When you look at the world through the lens of gratitude, you find opportunities to grow in every hardship.

When one season ends, you anticipate a new beginning.

Instead of waking up at dawn out of obligation, you think: ‘I get to see the sunrise’.

These are examples of a strong mental attitude that makes life an adventure.

5. You Thinks About Death (Sometimes).

Many people cringe at the topic of death. But thinking about death can be inspiring. What’s uncomfortable makes us grow.

Death helps us recognize that life is finite. Then life becomes a rare commodity, something we shouldn’t take for granted.

“Death awareness” also motivates us to take care of ourselves. Embracing death keeps us sane and grateful. In the face of death, our everyday problems become insignificant.

Instead of chasing after the next pay rise or a dream vacation, you re-evaluate the relationships in your life, finally start doing things that make you happy, and leave your mark on society.

You shouldn’t think about death all the time, but keep in mind that you have an expiration date on this magnificent planet Earth.

Don’t run from the topic of death. By ignoring it, you are stealing from your mental sanity.

6. You Are Generous.

Maintaining good relationships with others is the most important factor contributing to a sense of well-being.

Healthy relationships thrive on acceptance, honesty, and generosity.

It is not about giving away material stuff, but about small gestures to make somebody feel seen or heard.

Attention to another human being is rare these days. This is why it makes a difference.

A racing mind is a tense mind. A focused mind is calmer and more engaged. When you become mindful of the other person’s presence, they feel your interest and reciprocate it.

When you connect with people on a deeper level, you might realize you are connected to a greater order — a higher power that is a part of every human, animal, rock, and star on this planet.

This super cosmic connection puts every relationship in a different perspective.

7. You Are Emotionally Responsible.

Good mental health doesn’t mean you sparkle with positivity around the clock.

It means you recognize negative emotions as temporary and not a part of your identity.

Mentally strong people are hyper-aware of their feelings. They understand that with ups, there also come downs. They embrace the package of life.

Ups and downs in life are very important to keep us going, because a straight line even in an ECG means we are not alive.

— Ratan Tata

You can openly talk about your feelings or journal about them. You know it is called taking charge of your mental well-being.

You don’t feel shame or guilt about expressing your emotions. Instead, you feel free in doing so.

You don’t play nice but can easily say ‘no’ to people who cross your boundaries. You know your limits and are vocal about them.

In the same manner, you shout ‘yes’ to experiences that add value to your life.
