our minds can be our best friend or our worst enemy
Mental fitness is your capacity to respond to life's challenges with positive rather than negative mindset.
One definition of happiness is the percentage of time you are in positive feelings and mindset. We call this percentage of being in positive vs. negative emotions the Positive Intelligence Quotient or PQ.
Negative emotions come from our survival brain, developed 180 million years ago. These emotions are useful as an alert to where we may need to pay attention, based in real or perceived worries, frustrations and fears. We often stay in heightened negative feelings and thoughts far, far beyond the alert message. This keeps us in a fight, flight or freeze stress response, producing far more cortisol than we need, affecting breathing, blood pressure and other physiological impacts. We take a tunnel vision focus. Over time, this produces habits, like patterns of thoughts and behaviours, and impacts our quality of life and health.
When we stay in fearful survival mode, we are sabotaging our happiness and impacting our performance, wellbeing and relationships. Our inner critics—or Saboteurs—live in this place and can be our fiercest enemy. Saboteurs are directed by fear: old fears, current worries and apprehensions we will fail or be hurt in some way. Using this part of our brain, we more often find ourselves ruminating on the past, distracted in the present, and worrying about the future.
Did you know there's a wiser, more powerful and underused part of our brain? It's not something we learn about in school or university (yet) and so has a quieter voice overshadowed by our loud Saboteurs. We call this part of our brain our Sage mind. It generates our positive emotions, accesses calm, openness, curiosity, passion and creative wisdom and can be our far fiercer friend.
With training and practice, we can build our mental fitness muscles to weaken the enemy (our Saboteurs) and strengthen our friend (our Sage mind). Neuroscience refers to this as mind management, in Mental Fitness we refer to our self-command.
