Andrew Bridgewater is a chartered psychologist and resilience coach. He shares with us some absolute golden top tips to help us get fit for business and more importantly stay fit. He teaches us the importance of getting yourself fit and healthy, getting your brain working right, making sure that you are active, making sure that your blood is flowing, so that you can transform and perform better in business.

In this episode, you will learn what good stress and bad stresses are and how we can use these to help us develop natural resilience to today’s demands on us as individuals.

Andrew also shares with us how to avoid Burn Out and tells us his harrowing story of his journey where he ended up on heavy antidepressants and was hospitalised for a while after his own negative thinking internally took over and plunged him into depression.

More importantly Andrew and I talk about the importance of the need to balance our bodies and minds and let them both recharge!

If you want to be in business for the long haul and sustain a senior level in your organisation, then you need to get “Fit for Business”. Andrew also shares with us ways to implement small simple changes that will end up giving us some big results!

The best quote from the Podcast was “To know and not to do, is not yet to know” (have a think about it for a minute)

His three tips to help you kick start your healthy body and mind regime are:

1 – To drink 2/3 litres of water plus a small amount of Wheat grass a day

2 – Exercise some mental relaxation and de-clutter your mind

3 – Invest in some learning and explore and learn how your mind works – Check out some of Sydney Banks’ work.
