Getting in the Zone: Applying Sports Psychology to Everyday Life

College life can often be a juggling act, with academic demands, social activities, and personal responsibilities vying for students’ attention. We live in an outcome-based world, where being preoccupied with results and all of its attendant stress and anxiety prevents students from performing their best. What if there’s a way out? A method we can use to help sharpen their strengths and enjoy every moment? Over the past 20 years, sport and performance psychology has taught elite performers to train more than just their bodies, but also their minds: preparing for stressful moments and connecting with the most powerful versions of themselves.
