Do you ever feel like you go through a day to day cycle? Go to work- work your ass off training- go home and eat dinner- scroll through Facebook so you can see what everyone else is doing with their lives- go to bed- repeat. Repeating this vicious cycle day after day, week after week, eventually you will become tired, feel burnt-out, lack confidence, etc. Does this sound like you?
Sometimes we need to take a step back and recharge our mental batteries. Do things that will improve your well-being and make you become less stressed or tense. It is the idea of giving your mind a break in the intensity, so you can have the new PR’s and feel stronger and better!
Ideas for Mental Rejuvenation for this type of Athlete:
-Work on breathing
-Take a bath
There is much value in doing activities that are for pleasure and not to win, perfect or improve it. Try to incorporate a couple of minutes a day in order to relax your mind and get out of your crazy schedule. Your brain is a muscle too; it needs its rest days just like the other groups of muscles in your body. Mentality is important to training.
“There is virtue in work and there is virtue in rest. Use both and overlook neither.”
