The Fit2Thrive process: An introduction

Putting theory into practice

This short course introduces newcomers to how the Fit2Thrive process works to understand your human nature by exploring the wonder of your cells and organs and everything else that makes up you and the life that you live.

It will take you through the basic process of having better holidays by learning about basic everyday processes that our cells do to support our lives and the activities that make them up.

It's about life well lived, starting from the most essential aspects of life, which are cells and the critical biological principle that all life depends on to bring order and balance, better known as "Homeostasis".

You will work through the Weymouth holiday series to learn how to apply Fit2Thrive principles to make the best of various situations. You will see how beginner, intermediate and advanced learners can all benefit from the same situation, as there is always something to learn. You will learn how to use the basic Fit2Thrive framework to break down each situation and understand the underlying principles at work.

Levels of complexity

Levels of Theory

Find your balance

    1. Balance: All life exists by maintaining its internal environment against internal and external pressures. Solving a problem begins by understanding what is affecting the overall balance and how to correct it.
    2. Cells:  Building on the understanding of balance. We are made of trillions of cells all maintaining their internal environment while working with other cells to regulate their external environment. Understanding this complex dynamic is harder and takes longer but leads to bigger longer lasting changes.
    3. Pressure: The most complicated level linking balance, cells and the entire ecosystem together. We consider the pressures of all the competing demands on your time and resources.

Levels of Practice

Take a moment

    1. Time: in understanding our own potential and pursuing our best life, it is essential to understand the complexity of a moment and how much is going on. Then create moments in each day where you restore your balance and grow in some way.
    2. Learn: Life is a journey of lessons. Experiment regularly, you will never know it all but every moment can teach you something so you can know more today than you did yesterday.
    3. Fun:   Enjoy what you do because we do not repeat things we do not enjoy and when you are happy you can overcome any challenge.
