It’s important for athletes (and everyone else) to take care of themselves, physically and mentally. You can’t skip the basics of good physical and mental health and expect to perform at a high level. Here are some tips to help you stay active:
Make exercise a habit. If you do something on a regular basis, it becomes part of your life. Regular exercise has demonstrated the ability to improve physical and mental well-being.
Take it easy. Try to relax rather than putting a lot of stress on yourself. When you’re relaxed, you’ll be better prepared and see things more clearly.
Listen to your body. One of the biggest mistakes athletes make is coming back from injury too soon. Take some time to allow your body to heal normally.
Don’t overdo it… moderation is the key. Whether it’s your diet or exercise, avoid an extreme, fanatical approach and don’t go overboard.
Believe in you. When you’re confident, it enhances a lot of things, including your physical and mental performance and achievement.
