“INJURY MIND” #2 – MOVING ON   Leave a comment

In follow up to my previously posted article “Injury Mind” I would also like to share an article Exact Sports published in 2011. This article identifies definite recovery steps for coping with athletic injury, including:

1. Be Sad: Feeling is one of the most important parts of the healing process.

2. Deal with what it is.

3. Set new goals for yourself (but keep them realistic).

4. Keep a positive attitude.

5. Take an active part in your healing.

6. Don’t stop practicing and working out.

7. Use your experience as an athlete in other areas of your life.

8. Seek out the support of your teammates, coaches, and family.

9. Seek out a counselor if it gets too bad.

10. BE PATIENT

The article includes details and suggestions for each of these points. Check it out HERE.
