Series Description

Welcome to Reset your Mind – Regain your Game!

A series of Sports Psychology classes that will accompany you on your path towards achieving an optimal quality of life.

In this 8-part video series, you will be given practical strategies and tools to encourage you to build strength and enthusiasm as you take the first steps towards resuming a healthy lifestyle. On the other hand, if you have already taken those first steps but have found it difficult to sustain a sports practice over time, this series will deliver some valuable resources from the psychology of sport, that will make the whole process easier for you to maintain.

It is no secret that a lifestyle that incorporates physical activity and sports practice has great benefits for transplant recipients, however we are often faced with certain complications that tend to disrupt our progress. This series aims to help solve the challenges you may face in your journey to optimal wellbeing.

During this series, you will learn strategies that build mental strength and in doing so, improve all areas of your life. You will learn key skills to be able to manage yourself on a personal, emotional and social level. You will be encouraged to create a commitment to a healthy lifestyle, and learn how to sustain these new positive behaviours by adopting an attitude of challenge: transforming difficulties into challenges, overcoming these challenges and in this way – turn life into a competition!

Let’s get started and Reset your Mind – Regain your Game!
