Reduced muscle coordination
Higher insomnia rates (less sleep)
Bad attitudes that can lead to failure
Start off by involving yourself in a positive community because it helps with your mental training to be positive and having people people cheer you on. Second, make a team goal so that you have something to focus on instead of thinking about other things. Ideas for goals can be found in stories of people doing really well in their sport or activity, so then you should picture yourself doing amazing and use it for training. "You're never going to get the most out of your body unless you engage your mind" - Dennis Barker. You need to accept yourself as the athlete you want to be or you might not achieve what you really want to get out of what you're doing. It is very important to be positive. Sometimes this can be difficult but it helps a lot! When you feel like your going to fail, always find something you can believe in yourself for. Even if it is small, that's the best thing you can do. Be your own cheerleader. Also know that at a competition, things might not go your way, but you can come up with approaches ahead of time so you won't be surprised.

1) An advantage of being mentally trained, is being able to easily control what?
We think that staying positive encourages yourself to do better and helps you set goals, plus it helps to push yourself more.
2) What are the two types of mental training?
3) How many ounces of water a day does the average woman need a day?
5) How many hours of sleep does the average person need per day?
We think that finding little things to encourage yourself, does wonders. They will inspire you to do better and push harder in competitions.
4) What is one way to exercise your brain?
When you are at competition and things aren't going your way, keep encouraging yourself and don't let it get you down. This will prevent you from becoming nervous, tensing up, and not being able to perform at your best.
