Mental fitness is defined as ‘the flexible capacity to utilize resources and skills to psychologically adapt to internal and external challenges in order to enable optimal human functioning.’ (Robinson et al 2011) Our mental fitness helps us come alive and lead flourishing lives in the way we imagined.
We are now living in a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world and now more than ever we need to build and strengthen our mental fitness (in the same way we do our physical fitness) in order to flourish and navigate our everchanging landscape. When we are mentally fit we know we can take the time to pause and deal with any situation that comes our way, allowing us to interact with the world in a different way.
