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:
1. Know how to cope with stress
2. Figure out how to believe in your abilities
3. Commit to improving, even when you don’t want to
4. Embrace difficult things.
