Welcome to Anton Counseling & Health Psychology’s
New Personal Improvement Program!
This personal improvement program consists of a series of psychological exercises specifically designed to help you to build the competencies you need to heal, recover, and improve.
Your First Psychology Exercise is a Very Important One.
Your first exercise will crystalize a growth mindset and give you a great head start. All other exercises will nicely fit in with your very first one. You’ll find them throughout this page. Select the ones that make the most logical sense for you and your situation. In the long run, you’ll discover that many of these exercises really feel like they were more like “warm-up” or PRE-exercises, preparing you for real life.
They function as a foundational step in your personal improvement program. Everything else will build upon them. They will encourage you to accept and to practice a “leadership identity,” thinking and acting in ways that are responsive to both yourself as well as to the others in your life. Think and act in ways that are sure to make you feel in control of your life. Feel optimistic about the future and sure of yourself.
You’ll not only feel better, but you’ll also become more influential, and as an added bonus, your self-confidence will be bolstered. Aligning with this “leadership identity” will produce a great many other positive outcomes for you over time, too.

Think about what you allow into your mind. What do you dwell upon? These thoughts represent your “Psychological Diet.” Although we all have preferences, some of us ingest more worry than do others. If what I’m saying is relevant to you, you’re not alone. Some of us procrastinate. Some of us plan revenge. I have a tendency to savor guilt or give time to an inferiority complex. Others of us dwell upon negative thoughts. These sorts of Psychological diets can only expand ill feelings. But you can use your awareness to catch yourself before you dwell on any of these.
Optimize your daily life with Psychological Exercises
To optimize your day, consider doing both activities listed here. “Scenario Building“ will assist you in moving toward the achievement of your dreams and desires. “Wipe it Clear“ will help you to focus your efforts. Stop wasting valuable energy on anything you deem as unimportant to your desires or vision. Together, they have a wonderful impact on the mind.
Don’t feel stuck any longer. Focus your mind more exclusively on what is most important to you. Begin eliminating thoughts that are not essential to you, and free the mind from being “stuck.” Our thoughts tend to circulate through our minds. They reflect our lives and our lives tend to reflect the thoughts we allow to circulate through our minds. The inner mindscape creates what we experience, externally. By combining these two exercises, we focus on what we can control. We also stimulate the mind into a new and fresh territory of thought. One that’s satisfying.
Clear your mind, first. Let yourself feel calm. Now consider your values, beliefs, what’s most meaningful to you, and the life you are meant to live. Experience confidence. Engage Scenario Building because you care about your future and your performance in it. It can be one of many Psychological Exercises that you use as part of a healthy daily routine. Let me know how this exercise helps or what may be difficult about it.
Psychology Exercises – Wipe it Clear
Perhaps we all waste too much time and effort thinking about frivolity? We ponder and worry over matters that are outside of what is truly meaningful to us. Add this activity to your daily schedule. Make it one of many Psychological Exercises that you use as part of a healthy routine. Enhance your personal potential. Continue to wipe clear irrelevant thoughts. Create additional psychological space for those things that are most valuable to you.
