The Mindset Moment

-Each week Dr. Coach Meg will post in this segment about mental health, mental focus, and mental wellness. Parents and swimmers should stay tuned each week for helpful growth mindset and mental awareness.-

 This week’s Mindset Moment focuses on flexibility and obtaining outcomes one didn’t think possible.

Swimmers often find themselves in circumstance they may not have planned, but through focus and flexibility a swimmer can adapt to situations and obtain opportunities they may not have known. When a swimmer is open to ideas and a new way of thinking or doing, more opportunities may become available. An example may be for a swimmer to be placed in an event they have not swam and then realize they may be a better swimmer at the event then previously thought. These opportunities then can provide a moment for growth and confidence. 

Parents can support swimmers by teaching them to be accepting to opportunities as they arise; and that flexibility is a healthy advantage toward growth of self.
