Engaging in sports is a fun way for many people to get fit and can also be an opportunity to spend time with family, peers and/or friends. Professional sports can also be used as a form of income.
Physical activity affects people both emotionally and mentally. This is something that sports psychology strives to assess and provide answers for.
Sports psychology focuses on how individuals engaging in sports are influenced, including how to enhance an individual’s mindset for increased performance. Sportspeople must be healthy both physically and mentally, to succeed.
