What is Mental Fitness? Mental fitness is our capacity to handle life's challenges with a positive versus a negative mindset. Just as we exercise our bodies for physical fitness, we must build up our mental muscles for emotional and mental well-being. However, many of us lack solid mental fitness skills, leading to stress, anxiety, and a sense of being overwhelmed, as if life is beyond our control. The Negative Default Mindset Evolution and childhood conditioning have caused the part of our brain where we experience negative emotions to be a superhighway of connectivity versus the region where we experience positive emotions, which has fewer connections and is more like a dirt road. That means we automatically process experiences with a negative mindset, which leads to negative feelings about ourselves, others, and our circumstances. Shifting to a Positive Mindset To help individuals cultivate a positive mindset, I offer the Positive Intelligence mental fitness seven-week "boot camp" to individuals, couples, and small groups. This program, developed by Shirzad Chamine at Stanford University, combines neuroscience, positive psychology, performance science, and cognitive behavioral psychology to rewire the brain for positivity. The program helps you learn to intercept negative thoughts, strengthen your self-command muscle and develop your inner "Sage" to handle challenges with a clear, calm mind and positive emotions. It's time to reduce stress, anxiety, and overwhelm and experience better relationships, improved performance, and enhanced well-being!
