Mental fitness introduction and research
Mental fitness is a measure of the strength of your positive mental muscles (Sage) versus the negative (Saboteur).
This work is a synthesis of the latest breakthroughs in neuroscience, cognitive and positive psychology, and performance science.
The research is the basis of Shirzad Chamine’s New York Times bestselling book Positive Intelligence, and the foundation of several Stanford lectures.
How you self-sabotage
A key to Mental Fitness is to weaken the internal Saboteurs who generate all your “negativity” in the way they respond to challenges. Your Saboteurs cause all your stress, anxiety, self-doubt, frustration, regret, shame, guilt, and unhappiness.
Your “Sage” lives in an entirely different region of your brain and handles challenges in ways that produce positive emotions like curiosity, empathy, creativity, calm, and clear-headed laser-fo- cused action. You’d perform better and feel happier.
