Cheerleaders, You Can Take Constructive Mental Time Off

Cheerleading is a year-round sport and physically and mentally intense.  If you thrive on working year-round in the gym, you should know that you can give yourself some mental relaxation time without leaving the gym.   Cheer Daily shares some ways that you can do this:

  • take the time to enjoy adding technique to skills that you are already good at, for example:  if your back tuck travels back half a panel, try a set technique to work on landing in the same spot every time.
  • come up with ways to build team spirit and get to know your team mates
  • be mindful and assess any areas that you can improve, talk to your coach, and come up with a plan and goal to fine-tune these points
  • consider being a counselor at a cheeleading camp or clinic with younger kids

It’s summer, so whatever time you take off, enjoy and remember there is a lot to do out there!
