Sport and Performance Psychology: On Tuesday, April 8th, Dr. Celine Kline talked to us about how we could incorporate sport and performance psychology. Though this sort of psychology is only for athletes she explained to us why we could use it in our daily life. Sport and performance psychology is a scientific study of psychological factors associated with participation and performance in sport, exercise, and other types of activities. One important component of this form of psychology are the mental skills. Mental skills include mind sets, fixed and open mind sets. Obviously, the open mind set is the best one to have when participating in any activity. You want a positive attitude when going into anything, whether it be a new activity or one that you have been doing for a while. Another thing Dr. Kline talked to us about is energy management; we have all faced days when we seem to find ourselves dragging. The reason this is, is because we haven't managed how to spend our energy. We need to manage our energy wisely and make sure we are expending our energy in all the right activities. See slides here.
