Teaching Tuesday: Meditation for a Healthy Mind

Meditation for a Healthy Mind

 

Athletes are constantly under pressure and stress to perform to the best of their ability, which can take a toll on their mental health. In the SwimSwam article links below, they discuss specific aspects of the sport that athletes can struggle within their time swimming. The judgment of one’s self, based on winning and losing competitions, can be a huge mental component to an athlete’s success. Allowing athletes to have freedom in their own minds, without pressure, is an incredible thing. When athletes are able to be non-judgemental towards themselves, it gives them room for an immense amount of growth in the sport and in their own confidence.
