3 Reasons why you might want it.
2020 has made it clear to most of us that we, humans, can struggle with uncertainty. Our lives have been turned upside down in various ways that have upended our sense of safety, security, and stability. Let’s not kid ourselves, we have a whole lot less control than we once thought we did and we’re getting a strong dose of reality. Whether we like it or not, we’ve been forced to change our routines, our habits, and our expectations.
There’s never been a better time to invest in our own Psychological Fitness. In essence, Psychological Fitness is a state of being that allows us to be open and aware to the realities of life, permitting us to engage in life in a way that matters most.
Many of us have spent most of our lives repeating patterns and ways of being without being present to them. We rationalize that we are the way we’ve always been – call it personality type, introvert/extrovert, a product of our values, our culture, and family of origin. And we often default to coping strategies that we’ve used throughout our lifetime. The problem is that our coping strategies learned in childhood were never meant to be used in adulthood. What protected us in childhood (the basis of coping strategies) sabotage us in adulthood and keep us from our potential.
Empower yourself to overcome old coping patterns that sabotage your efforts for growth and success…
Have you ever experienced defensiveness when someone shares their feelings with you? You find yourself reacting with dismissiveness, minimization, and an explanation around why you are right and they are wrong? Most of us have experienced a bit or a bunch of this in our lives, we’re all human. But if this practice gets in the way of experiencing healthy relationships and keeps you from achieving what you desire most, then you might be interested in learning ways to grow past the need for this strategy. Psychological Fitness practices can help you become the CEO of you, allowing you to be an expert on you and how you engage in life.
Create presence within seconds…
This is done in part with simple breath practices and sinking into the belly of your current experience. When we’re stuck in our stories of the past and future uncertainties, we create problems. When we are present in the moment, connected to our embodied experience, problems decrease.
Experience increased energy and attention…
With increased awareness comes a deeper connection to our own energy levels and the best times for us to focus and utilize our attention in ways that matter most to us. Psychological Fitness allows us to generate energy even when in depleted states. We learn how to renew and restore quickly, and more efficiently. We begin to practice healthier routines, we become less reactive and life feels less stressful, and struggle decreases.
