39. Good Supportive Behavior by Phoenix, J. - IQ #9

On Encouragement, Group Support, and Looking where one's headed

Season 1, episode 40
15 min / Published

Going through rough times 😖 without friendly support to uplift and encourage you is, in fact, hard.

 This is not an episode to refer big dark moments, more than the day to day situations an athlete might face with other sportsmen, and that can affect negatively their wellbeing and performance.

 In order to provide information around the impacts of Stress and Support in the athlete’s feelings and behaviors, we lay out what was inspired by Joaquin Phoenix speech at the Oscars Ceremony, 2020.

Quote: “When we support each other, not when we cancel each other out for past mistakes - that’s when we are at our best”
