Talking about this concept, Jonathan shares that ~
“I had many instances where people – my friends, family people or other acquaintances ask me about my job and what I actually do! They would be curious to know things from both the sides; from the doc’s side as well as from the athlete’s perspective.”
Paying attention to the moment
Be in the moment, don’t think about the past or what the future holds for you. Just be in the moment, feel the things, your friends, people, things and be into the work you are doing. As you pay attention to your work, you will slowly realize that you are performing better, and better focused than before.
Also, it’s not that easy as it sounds. Yet, a powerful tool you can make use out of.
Talk to yourself
Remember those days, mostly the childhood ones when we used to blabber things a lot. That was a smart move, did you know that? Talking to oneself is a sign of sanity, where the tone matters the most. If you are talking positive or in a relaxed way, you are probably gonna feel the same. So, keep talking to yourself.
Stress is useless
Stress simply takes out the productivity and energy out of you. In case you are feeling the stress, take a deep breath and relax. Try doing 5mins mental medication during the breaks, it will surely get you a different feel and mood for better work outputs.
In the end, just chill, relax, have fun in your life no matter how much ****** up it is! We can always take a break, be in the moment and face it together.
Have a good day, guys.
