A couple of weeks ago, Oz (From Oz & Jay’s Big Breakfast on XFM100.2) was talking about how he struggled to recover after a traumatic experience he had in his teens. I thought it was super cool that he spoke so openly about this and I could tell that his intention in doing so was to help others who may be going through something similar. His message was clear: reach out. No matter how insignificant or silly you think your suffering may be, reach out and seek support because it’s only with support that you can heal.
I loved his message, so I reached out to him and Jay. As you know, spreading the message of psychological fitness is my mission in life. Without healing and integrating our troubling experiences, we can’t fully show up for life and create a life full of purpose and fulfilment. So, I let them know that I appreciated Oz’s sharing and told them that if they ever wanted to discuss this further on air, I’d love to join them on the show if they wanted me.
They did want me! So, early last Friday morning – how do they wake up so early every day?! – I went on their show, along with my brother, Andrew Hogg, who’s also extremely passionate about psychological fitness. In fact, Andrew links psychological and physical fitness together on a daily basis in his training as Malta’s national goalkeeper.
Here’s the video of our show last Friday. Oz & I initially disagree on the concept of mental illness. We go on to discuss psychological fitness or as I like to call it, Lifestyle Strategy. I talk about how our emotions are our internal indicators and my brother speaks about the mental preparation involved in athletic performance.
