A person can gauge their Mental Fitness largely on how they handle pressure.
Previously I dealt with the topic of emotions. I stated that emotions are the taste
buds of life. While that is a true statement, Mental Fitness is a person’s ability
to remain in control of their emotions under pressure. It is the ability to remain
calm and focused in the face of unexpected events that can produce those
moments of extreme anxiety.
How is it possible to survive and even thrive under pressure? You must have
a system to regain psychological control in the face of unexpected events or
distractions. The key factor in Mental Fitness is to learn how to condition
your mind to think positively so that you can overcome frustrations, negative self-talk and push past the circumstances
you face in order to act confidently.
The Grief & Wellness Group teaches such a tool that will get you on the right track and keep you there when
used on a regular basis. It can help you develop an automatic response to the anxious moments and keep you
sharp so you can focus on the task at hand.
