Session: How to Grow Your Mental Fitness: Shifting from Surviving to Thriving
If you’re physically fit, you’d be able to climb a steep hill without much physical stress. Same goes with mental fitness. The more mentally fit you are, the more you’ll be able to handle the stress, anxiety and frustrations that might come from work and personal life challenges.
Recent events such as the pandemic, disruption in financial markets, social unrest, and political changes have overstretched many of us.
Strengthening your Mental Fitness is the X Factor.
Your level of Mental Fitness is the best predictor of how happy you are and how well you perform relative to your potential. It’s the key to unlocking your ability to evolve, change and adapt. So you can not just survive but thrive in these tumultuous times.
The good news: just like physical fitness, you can boost your Mental Fitness with practice.

Amy Yip is a Life Transformation and Mental Fitness coach who works with high achieving, ambitious women to let go of the ‘shoulds’, the guilt, and the external pressures so they can be the author of their own life story (because if you don’t tell your story, someone else will). After 16+ years of building and leading global teams in organizations like Google, Clorox, and Booz Allen, Amy left the corporate world in January 2020, sold all her belongings in her NYC apartment, and took a 1-way flight to Ghana with her husband to volunteer at a breast cancer non-profit. The plan was to volunteer then travel the world, but COVID changed those plans and she ended up stuck in Ghana for 7 months.
One of her greatest learnings on her life journey so far is that: Your mindset, NOT your circumstance, makes all the difference in your happiness and success.
Amy is an International Coach Federation (ICF) Professional Certified Coach (PCC) and Certified Hudson Institute Coach. She is also one of the pioneer Mental Fitness Coaches to be certified through Positive Intelligence. She has coached a range of clients from executives to new leaders and individual contributors on finding their voice and the courage to speak up, building self-confidence, navigating change, discovering what they want next in their life and career, and identifying their authentic leadership style.
