30 Ways You Can Improve Your Performance

30 Ways You Can Improve Your Performance

Welcome to episode #150 of Demystifying Mental Toughness!

This is the first part of four specially created episodes to celebrate reaching 150 episodes. The episode is hugely insightful with a number of our guests to date, sharing many fantastic takeaways.  The messages come from different angles where a mental toughness practitioner, mental performance coaches and Olympians discuss mental toughness and horse riding, track and field, bobsleigh, cricket, swimming and skiing.  We also have sports psychologists and an occupational therapist who share great insights into elite level golf, gymnastics, the complexities surrounding sport and parenting as well as long term injuries and the subsequent impact on one’s mental health.
