On May 20, we are proud to join forces with MTV and hundreds of global brands, cultural leaders and other nonprofit organizations for the first ever Mental Health Action Day. Our goal is to help athletes make emotional well-being a priority.
There are many tools available to assist you or your loved ones in promoting well-being, reducing stress and improving coping skills and resilience, including our Strong Minds resources. Emotional well-being is just as important as physical health. Check out these tips to help manage stress:
- Use a stress ball five minutes a day and practice positive messaging and deep breathing.
- Participate in regular stretching/yoga through Athlete Performance Training programming.
- Learn about and practice healthy sleep.
- Encourage your family to practice self-care and implement an activity plan or calendar.”
