In today’s world, the concept of physical fitness is well known. It is a state of general good health and wellbeing, that allows a person to perform specific tasks (such as sports or work tasks), whilst also helping to protect a person against developing/managing health conditions (such as diabetes or certain heart conditions). We are also aware that it is an activity; one that needs to be invested in every day (for example, with diet and exercise), rather than something that can ever be considered ‘ticked off’.
Mental fitness is very similar to physical fitness. When we are mentally fit, we flourish. We are able to meet the challenges of daily life, manage our stress in helpful ways, and feel confident in our ability to navigate our world. True mental fitness also requires daily investment, just like physical fitness. Mental fitness means more than just an absence of a mental illness; it is about going “from good, to great”.
HSE Global offers four different Mental Fitness programmes, which can cater and be adapted to different individual, team and organisational needs.
