The Pressure Within… The “yips,” “choking,” “collapsing down the stretch,” “underachievement.”They’re all signs of performance anxiety, distractibility, low self confidence, depressive reactions and physical tension hurting results. Make sure your motivation and intensity levels are optimal by developing strong mood and self-regulation abilities.
Understanding and managing the psychological factors related to injury or acute/chronic pain can shorten the recovery process and build resilience. Future injury can be avoided and performance increased as a result of the careful assessment of the injury.
Identifying behaviors, thoughts, emotions and sensations that require strengthening, and those that need to be changed, leads to improved performance and results.
