Being mentally resilient means being able to recover quickly from difficulties. It’s a skill that takes practice. You need to train your mind.
The first step is to examine your attitude and reactions. How do you feel when difficulties and big changes pop up? Do you stress out? Do you get overwhelmed? Do you freeze? Try to avoid the issue? Now, just think, how do you want to be able to handle those situations? Wouldn’t it be great to get through them with grace and ease?
Whether big or small, change and struggle is inevitable. Instead of allowing it to knock you down, you can learn to become comfortable with it and use it to your advantage. Meditation is a great tool to develop this ability!

The Benefits of Meditation
We get it. Meditation can be really challenging! It’s especially tough for athletes that are used to always being on the move and putting in a ton of physical work. Practicing mental work (including sitting in stillness and quiet) may feel harder than a sweaty workout, but that’s exactly why you need it!
Meditation is used to identify distractions, cultivate mental toughness, and improve focus when needed most.
