Surviving to Thriving – Mental Toughness (Steve Harris)
Chapter 2. SURVIVING TO THRIVING GUIDE
2. You have excellent holistic wellness
Holistic wellness means all your faculties are in a state where your energy is not drained by fragility and surviving, instead you have abundant energy driving you towards agility and thriving. If you have serious challenges in any of your faculties, it will impact on your ability to strive for success and significance.
I recall a section in a poem that went something like: They squander their health in search wealth, they sweat they toil and they slave. Then they squander their wealth in search of health, and only find the grave.
I have extracted the following few paragraphs from eta College’s Health and Wellness Coach course to expand on wellness.
Have you ever asked yourself; what is wellness and well-being? Why are so many people working in the wellness industry? Why should we make it a priority to improve well-being around us, in our environment and at work?
According to Psychology Today, well-being is the experience of health, happiness, and prosperity. It includes having good mental health, high life satisfaction, a sense of meaning or purpose, and an ability to manage stress. More generally, well-being is just feeling well.” Our actions, thoughts, and experiences (most of these we have control over) informs well-being. There are five major types of Well-being:
Emotional Well-Being: This is the ability to manage stress, be mentally tough, and to generate emotions leading to good feelings. Skills informing emotional well-being are positive thinking, regulating your emotions, practicing mindfulness and resilience.
Physical well-being: This is the ability to improve how the body functions (establishing healthy habits). This included eating healthy, detoxing the body, adjusting nutritional deficiencies, and including physical activity.
Social Well-being: This is the ability to communicate with people, developing meaningful relationships and to create and maintain support networks. Skills needed to develop this is to increase gratitude, kindness, positive interactions with others etc.
Workplace Well-Being: This is the ability to gain meaning, happiness and developing as a person by pursuing your interests, values, and goals. Maintaining a work-life balance and finding your purpose are part of maintain workplace well-being.
Societal Well-being: The ability to contribute to a thriving community, culture, and environment. Focusing on living your values, making a positive impact in other people’s lives and kindness, are just a few skills which increases social well-being.

When the going gets tough, the tough get going.
And the going has got very tough, so let’s get going. I see some light at the end of the tunnel and if we are tough our coaching can get going even better than at the beginning of 2020.
As a dad who has two sports-mad kids we had to be creative in keeping them active, so they didn’t lose their love for being out in the fresh air. Participating in sport with friends is what they missed the most. At eta College, we had to adapt but thankfully, through foresight over the last two years, we were able to continue with our programmes quite successfully.
In the process we have identified many new opportunities within further and online education, eta College staff are working hard to bring many more of these ideas to light in the future.
One of these is the continued development of sports coaches, we explored what would be exciting, interesting, and suitable programs and workshops for this space in our college.
We need your help though, as current students and alumni of eta College, please give input on what you would like us to focus on as we prepare to launch this sector within our bigger programme offering. Below you will find a link to a list of online; one (1) to three (3) hour programme ideas we have pre-designed and will bring to market in early March 2021.
