Mental Strength and Sport.

in #advice5 years ago


Good morning, crypto world. Today I will start to write about other topics than crypto and start with the connection between our mind and our body based on the sport.
Thanks to @nomad-magus to give me some ideas.

Working out stimulates your body’s blood flow and boosts your circulation more than when you’re resting. Not only do your muscles benefit from the increased blood circulation in your body, your brain is also provided with more oxygen which makes you feel more awake and focused. Studies have even shown that certain biochemical substances can be transported better with this increased blood flow, which improves the brain’s efficiency. Long-term effects of training can even entail the facilitated formation of new synapses and the consolidation of already existing brain connections. This means that regular training can improve your overall concentration and can even influence your efficiency, productivity and creativity. So remember this: next time you feel stuck with a task that requires a lot of brainwork, the best thing to do is to get your running shoes on and get your body and mind moving faster.

Perseverance. Grit. Willpower. Call it what you want – when you stick to your plans and goals, you will achieve them. Commitment is the most important driver for getting there. Add consistent training and exercise to it and the impossible becomes possible. Progress fuels your persistence and becomes the natural motivator to continue, defying your initial doubts. You become more and more ambitious and trust in your capabilities. How is this triggered by physical performance? Even small victories can help convince your mind that anything is possible. This unconsciously extends to your professional or private life, where you also benefit from this persistence and belief in yourself that you have developed during training. You’ve already surprised yourself once with your progress. Why not again and again?

Did you use to get nervous talking in front of people? Were you scared of the unknown or unfamiliar situations and insecure about your capabilities to tackle particular tasks? With regular training, this becomes less likely to happen. As you get closer to achieving your dream body and become more confident with your physical appearance, you also learn to deal better with stress, anxiety or even depression. How? When doing sports your body produces more endorphins – the so-called happiness hormones – that can lift your mood, strengthen the immune system and reduce our stress hormones the so-called Cortisols. Studies have even shown that people who exercise regularly tend to be more successful than those who don’t. Not necessarily because they are more intelligent or talented. Very often, simply because they are more confident to take risks, more ambitious, disciplined, strong-minded and willing to work hard for their goals. Might be worth giving it a try, don’t you think?

In the end, mental toughness is much like a muscle: It grows when you train it and it shrinks when you don’t. If you never push yourself and instead always stay in your comfort zone – nothing will change and you’ll be exactly like you were yesterday. Choose to pass this threshold. Often, it’s your mind – not your body – telling you that you can’t do something. Prove it wrong and increase both your physical and your mental strength.

Take one hour a day and go for a walk or train, you will feel better and will be more productive.

Happy trading!

That's a very interesting topic & you're absolutely right, there's nothing better than taking a break from work and exercise. It clears out your head and you can fully concentrate on important things after. Of course it also changes your presence, you're way more confident and your mind is more balanced! I recommend everyone to try it and you'll see yourself how big of a change it is :)

Thank you, tomorrow I will post the effect of food on your body.
