This platform is designed to provide people with education, tips, strategies and solutions to improve their mental performance. Your brain is a muscle and just like all the other muscles in your body, it can be strengthened and trained. Mental fitness training simply means keeping your brain and emotional health in balance. Through podcasts, blogs, presentations, workshops, online courses and my radio show Mental Fitness Matters on WSIC radio, I want to provide people with tools and resources they can use anywhere to stay mentally sharp.
Depending on where you are in your mental wellness journey, this platform has tools for everyone. I recommend to start with:

Anyone willing to put in the time and effort to learn, develop and maintain mental skills will benefit from mental fitness training.
This answer could go on and on, but a few benefits of training your mental fitness include:
- Focus & concentration
- Decision making
- The ability to remain focused under pressure
- Overall performance
- Stress management
- Compassion & empathy
- Distraction control
- Imagery and visualization
- Goal setting
- Association and disassociation strategies
- Positive self-talk
- Dealing with adversity
- Coping skills
That is a very common misconception about mental training. Performers and people of any level will become more confident, more efficient and more productive
This answer really depends on YOU. Training of any kind takes time, but mental training especially requires commitment, dedication, time, practice and a positive mindset. Think about it, anything that you’ve become good at has required your time, attention and practice, and mental fitness training is no different. Overtime you will become very clear at what works for you, what doesn’t, how to set boundaries, how to get in the zone, how to protect your energy, how to manage the stress life throws at you, how to visualize and see yourself where you want to be, how to focus your energy and the list goes on and on. All these benefits are possible, but it takes time and your willingness to commit to the programs.
