According to Dr. Greg Chertok in an article for the American College of Sports Medicine, “athletes and non-athletes alike need to develop a skill set that will improve “mental toughness” and allow them to develop a healthy mindset, particularly in the face of challenges.”
He suggests four steps to developing a healthy mindset:
- Know how to cope with stress
- Figure out how to believe in your abilities
- Commit to improving, even when you don’t want to
- Embrace difficult things.
