This week, I’m talking to Anthony Taylor. Anthony is an author, coach, trainer and speaker on the subject of mental fitness who works with companies to get the best out of their employees while focusing on their wellbeing. Working on 'Mental Fitness', his program works on three key points based around Mental Resilience, Emotional Intelligence, and Mental Health. 

We discuss the words we use in the workplace such as 'mental intelligence' and how we might make these terms less threatening to hear. We also talk about how we moved into our careers, what difficulties we faced and how we overcame them. Boundaries is a topic we discuss plenty of in this section. What boundaries should we put in place for ourselves in the workplace? What is a healthy boundary in this day and age? This is something we must all work on if we want to be successful in our businesses.

We talk about how boundaries are not just physical but also needed mentally too.

Anthony shares a story of how he overcame a difficult part of his business life in which his brain would never really switch off after work, and then how he burned out from the underlying stress. 

“I was constantly sharpening the sword, but if you're constantly sharpening the sword you'll wear it down; and that's what I ended up doing. I was not switching off my brain”

 

This is a really important story to hear if you are a manager or a business owner as you should understand how this stress and anxiety in the workplace can affect anybody. Especially if you are in a stressful environment during these strange times. No-one on this is planet is that essential that you can’t have a few hours off.
