Psychology is an overarching area which consists of multitude of branches that focus on different aspects of human behaviour and cognitive processes. One of the branches is Sports Psychology that I have been invested in, both personally and professionaly. Experience as a semi-professional basketball player and a sports enthusiast allows me to intuitively know what do sports practitioners experience while competing or training. On top of that having studied Bachelor in Psychology and Masters in Sports Psychology gives me specific tools and theoretical knowledge about the topic.
Do you recognise yourself saying/thinking any of the following statemens:
- It’s too warm/cold to train outside
- I don’t have space at home to exercise
- It’s raining
- I don’t have money to pay the gym
- My schedule is so packed, there is no time for exercise
- Oh look, Ana has just called me for movies night, I’ll exercise tomorrow
After the festive hedonism season, the time has come to get your ass up and burn the cake, turkey, odojak & janjetina calories and get back to the routine (as you can see, this post was in the making for quite some time xD). Apart from making space in your tummy for more tasty food and getting the life balance back by working out, you are also creating extra shots of serotonin and dopamine in your brain. Happy molecules! That’s all you need to know.
