Learning About Mental Fitness

A few years back in 2014, my husband retired from his 35-year career as an RCMP Officer. For those of you that don’t know, the RCMP is the Royal Canadian Mounted Police – the police force that operates throughout Canada.

When he retired, he started getting sick. I’m not talking flu or cold sick… no! I’m talking about mental illness. Within 6 months, his PTSD had gotten so bad that he was unable to function. My provider and strongest supporter was often stuck in bed and so anxious that he couldn’t make the smallest of decisions.

This is when I started really researching mental health and getting into mental fitness. Mental fitness is all about strengthening your brain and body to function even through difficult circumstances. It is about becoming resilient.

One of the ingredients of strong mental fitness is speaking affirmations. So, my hubby and me started speaking affirmations each morning. Let me tell you… my husband definitely didn’t believe these affirmations at first. Neither did, I to be honest. But, they started working. We started writing them down, thinking about them, and confessing them.

Fast forward a few years, and I am proud to tell you that my hubby is doing much better! Sure, he still has some days that aren’t easy, but don’t we all?

Part of the beauty of hardship is that we learn and grow. Now, I’m not saying that hardship is easy, because it is definitely not! It sucks! But, without going through this hardship with my husband, maybe I wouldn’t be writing this post today! It’s all about perspective.

Winning The War In Your Mind

During COVID, my family and I started watching Life church regularly, and Craig Groeschel became a big influence in our lives! Recently, he released a new book called Winning The War In Your Mind. The reason I keep bringing this book up is because of how great it is!

This book perfectly sums up all of those years of me learning about mental health and mental fitness. For so long, I struggled to explain exactly what mental fitness is, and then this book came along. Craig Groeschel expertly meshes together what Psychology says and what the Bible says.

**HINT** they say a lot of the same things. It really shows how powerful and mighty our Heavenly Father is! He designed us, so it makes total sense to me that Psychology is just proving what the Bible says!

Affirmations For Weight Loss

So, I’ve been talking about affirmations and how they can transform your life. Remember:

Write It. Think It. Confess It Until You Believe It!

Kayce and I have created our own Affirmations for Weight Loss in the Weigh Down Lifestyle. Here they are:

WDL Affirmations 1
Weigh Down Lifestyle Affirmations For Weight Loss

Here they are in text:

  • I choose what I want MOST over what I want NOW.
  • I choose to be healthy and to treat my body like a temple.
  • I Love the Freedom of not having guilt and shame.
  • I love that God’s spirit and His power is helping me choose what I want Most over what I want now.
  • By faith, because of Christ’s power in me, I am stronger than the wrong desires in me.
  • I am disciplined

I encourage you today to write these down, start thinking about them, and confess them until you believe them. Actually, even when you do believe them, keep confessing them! These affirmations truly can transform your life!

I usually recommend having this sheet printed out on some paper and placing it where you can see it every day!

Me and my hubby have it in our bathroom, so that we can speak them to ourselves in the mirror each morning and each night!
