Central Belief: I can recover.
Daily Affirmation: I will recover.
Recovery is possible. When it comes to mental health, otherwise known as the “enigma of medicine,” miracles happen every day. Every day people heal from different conditions and improve their states of mind. For some, the journey is harder than others, but it is always worth fighting. Because you can win.
When it comes to healing the mind, you are the head of the medical team, although it may not feel like that at times. What I mean to say is, you are the guide who is going to get yourself through a difficult time. You can have a whole team of mental health professionals working with you to help find your stability, but in the end it is you who is going to have to put in the work to get better. You can consult experts, read books, or even visit websites like this one, but if you don’t make the effort to improve your situation, an undesirable state could remain your status quo.
We often think about fitness as being solely for the body, but what about the mind? I recovered from a debilitating depression to a significantly better place. How do you think I recovered? I applied the same notions we use to heal physical ailments to my mind. I did exercises. I did reps. I put in the time and did the work. And now that I’ve seen the results, I want to share as much as I can with others.
The goal for me was recovery. There was no other option. There was room for mistakes but none for failure. I had to either achieve the same mental strength as before or greater. Anything less was not even on the table. With that mindset, I could not fail and with that mindset, I recovered.
I want for London Mind Fit to be a place that people visit when they want to work on their minds, for whatever reason. There is not much guidance once you are mentally afflicted, but more so recommendations and advice. LMF is not created or run by a health professional but a person who went through it, used the techniques and with time got better because of it. That does not mean that these techniques will work for you, but it doesn’t mean that they will not either.
Improvement is possible, if even it is only incremental at times, it is those baby steps that can lead you to eventually make major strides. At it’s core London Mind Fit is about faith and the resilience of the human spirit.
The central belief of London Mind Fit is “I can recover.”
The daily affirmation is “I will recover.”
