50 Secrets for Optimal Performance and Positive Mental Health

the demystifying mental toughness episode 100 by david charlton

Welcome to episode #100 of Demystifying Mental Toughness!

One hundred episodes is something that I would like to celebrate, because I feel incredibly proud of what I’ve done with the show.  So in this episode I’ve collated a large number of take home messages from our guests to date and pieced them together into this episode.  There are lots of hugely inspiring messages for you.  

You’re going to hear key takeaways on how to develop your mental toughness, ideas to deal with Covid times, stress and adversity.  Coping with trauma and mental health challenges are also discussed.  We also look at health and fitness and sharing some top tips to help you.
