Physically & Mentally Fit

Updated: Jun 24, 2023

Responding rather than reacting will make a difference in your life.

Mental fitness can be defined as having and maintaining a state of well-being and cultivating awareness of how we think, behave and feel. When we're mentally fit, the way we interact with the world is different.

Just as physical fitness provides us with an increased ability to respond to life in all its richness, mental fitness helps in the same way. It provides us more space to choose how to respond to a situation, whether that situation is a forethought, an external stimulus, or a feeling. As a result, we are less likely to sustain (or cause) emotional and relational injury. In the same way that our physical fitness also affects our mental health, our mental fitness ultimately affects our physical health and wellness.

When you are more mentally fit, you recognize that you have a choice when that first angry statement comes your way. Mental fitness gives you the ability to pause and respond in the way you would like, in the moment, rather than having to reset or mend fences later. In some ways, it’s like accessing the wisdom of hindsight in the present moment.

As you invest in your own mental fitness, you will see the positive Impact you have at work, at home and in your community. You will spend more time as the best version of yourself and less time judging, controlling, avoiding, and self-sabotaging.

Happiness leads to success, not the other way around.
