About Mentalwod: A short summer break …
Mentalwod will be on a short summer break …
For the past two to three months I’ve been isolating myself a couple of times on Bornholm, a small danish Island south of Sweden in my fathers wonderful summercabin with a great view of the ocean. This place makes my mind think twice as fast as at home. The silence and the fact that there is no signal, so no phone or internet makes it easier for me to concentrate ..
So.. I have decided to go back. Once again. This time, because the deadline of my two articles is coming closer.
It is a research project that I have been working on for the past year . It is about how come some athletes make the transition from talent to elite successfully, and others dont. What are the important factors, seen from a mental perspective when we talk about talent development? And how can we help young talented athletes to go through this transition successfully?
Hopefully the articles will be published, so my work (in cooperation with the Danish organization Team Danmark, and the University of Copenhagen) can help athletes to make it through this transition. It is my aim that the articles also will provide knowledge to other sport psychologists, coaches and parents on how to help the athletes best way possible.
So, now you know what I will be doing for the next couple of weeks -
After that – VACATION!
I wish you all a wonderful summer! Mentalwod will be back with new offers, projects, insights and much more about the mental aspects of physical performance!
Until then, take care.
