Health Managing Consulting Sport

In sportspersons of high performance it is easy to pass from mere pressure that is normal in a competitiion, to a state of stress and anxiety, rendering useless their positive response. The anxiety that is generated creates a vicious circle that starts with lack of concentation, passes to disorganization and ends up in desparation, which directly affects performance.

A high level of anxiety generates, among other things, a distortion of reality provoking insecurity, difficulty in decision-making, lack of concentration, negative thoughts and lack of assertiveness. It is vital that the sportsperson knows how to manage emotions efficiently before, during and after a competition so as to achieve optimal performance.
