Healthy Personality development to enjoy life

Healthy personality is a way for a person to act, guided by intelligence and respect for life, so that his personal needs are satisfied

Personality development starts in early childhood and is a determining factor in how you live your entire life. If you have good outlook on life and have been blessed with favourable circumstance then it is likely that your personality will be quite good.

Looking at personality as a whole – it involves how you are perceived by others, your mental outlook, how you react to certain situations and what makes you uniquely “You”. Personality development is a lifelong learning cycle. Your personality improves depending on your mental wellbeing. If you are sour or feeling down then no doubt people will resent being around you.

When we say that someone has a "good personality" we mean that they are likeable, interesting and pleasant to be with. While we can only enhance our looks to a certain extent, we have the ability to improve the personality as much as we want. We can develop or integrate into our personalities any trait we deem fitting and agreeable.

Here are seven ways to make a healthy personality:

Be yourself: Moulding yourself in order to fit in, or be accepted, usually backfires. Since each of us is unique, expressing that uniqueness is what makes us interesting.

Have a positive outlook and attitude:  Do it by looking for the best in people and things. Smile warmly, spread good cheer, and enlighten others with your presence.

Treat people with respect: Being honest and true to your word will bring you the admiration, respect and gratitude of others.

Meet New People: It not only exposes you to different cultures and alternative ways of doing things, but broadens your horizons.

Read more and expand your interests: The more you read and cultivate new interests, the more interesting you are to others. When you meet new people it gives you the opportunity to share what you know and to exchange your views with them.

Stay calm in a stressful situation: If you are in a tense situation, try to remain relaxed and see what you can do to resolve the situation. Don’t start yelling and screaming – that’s not going to fix anything.

Make an opinion: Don’t be terrified about your opinions; just be well-informed and willing to change your mind. Don’t be afraid to ask others their views and share your own.

If a person displays a healthy personality, it indicates that he or she is in good mental health and can be trusted to conduct themselves in a respectable manner and set good examples to follow. The greatest plus point about having a healthy personality is that it allows for a fulfilling and meaningful life.

Perks of a pet

Research has consistently shown that owning a pet is good for a person’s emotional and physical well-being. Given that about 1 in 5 adolescents struggle with a mental disorder, the idea that a four-legged friend could help them is well worth exploring

We are all aware of the influence our pets have on our emotional well-being. Pets can be especially beneficial if you are struggling with emotional and psychological issues. While certainly professional counselling and medication may be what the doctor ordered, a furry companion could also help improve your teen’s well-being.

Many teens may lack the necessary coping skills to deal with troublesome emotions. All too often these youth are left to face their inner confusions alone, but that doesn’t have to be the case. Studies have shown that teenagers who are attached to a pet tend to function better emotionally in comparison to those who don’t own a pet. Pets can give teens an added sense of purpose and force them to interact, even when they may not feel like socializing.

Youth who care for an animal have stronger social relationships. In addition to social support, here are few other advantages of owning a pet:

Pets are a lot easier to hug: Let’s face it, many teens aren’t all that affectionate. But a pet can turn that around. Whether it’s a bark or a meow, animals are notorious for demanding and getting attention. It’s hard for a teen to ignore that brush against the leg, nudge to cuddle or a lick that says, “I love you.” That’s all the more important when teens aren’t feeling as much love from people around them.

They are all ears in tough times: Many teens believe adults don’t understand what they’re going through, so they accumulate all their problems inside. Using a pet as a sounding board is a great way to process and put into words all of those confusing thoughts and emotions.

Pets melt away stress and anxiety: There is nothing quite like petting an animal to help soothe and calm a racing mind. Playing with a pet can increase levels of oxytocin, a stress-reducing hormone, and decrease levels of the stress hormone cortisol.

They help with socialization and communication: Research from the University of Missouri shows that animals help youth with assertiveness and increase their confidence in their interactions with others. Pets are way more interesting to talk about than the weather, and they have a way of getting people to engage in social situations.

Pets are always by your side: Unlike people who can come and go, pets are right there each step of the way. Pets can help with combating feelings of depression and anxiety by providing companionship. A study in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology indicates owning a pet can have a positive impact on a person’s self-esteem, among other psychological benefits, decrease loneliness and even make a person less introverted.
