#50 - Michael Inglis On How Mindfulness Benefits Athletes, Mind-Body Connection & Winning Over Depression

We check back in with sports psychologist Michael Inglis today to update and continue from our first conversation with him. Kicking off, he shares with us how the practice of mindfulness can help athletes better their performance. He gives us tips ranging from breathing exercises, mental skills, routine preparation and how to actually introduce the practice into our daily life.

We then delve a little more into how our mind is connected to our nutrition and physiology. After that, we move into a rather serious topic in sports psychology which is depression. Michael shares with us how can win the fight against it and his experience on helping others with past traumatic experiences.

A lighthearted finish when we discuss rather embarrassing moments, the iPhone 7’s features!

Give this one a listen. Great episode guys. Enjoy.
