Sport has always offered us solace. A place to escape, be it in the doing, or the watching.
There are a million different reasons why sport brings us comfort and joy. It entertains us. It makes us feel as though we are part of something bigger than ourselves, creating a space for belonging, and, it gives us a place to express our emotions, through the experiences of others.
There are also a million different things we can learn from sport. That’s what I want to explore here.
Athletes have a lot to teach us. Their whole world is centred around ensuring they are thriving, so they can perform at their best.
My aim, is to help us all learn from this. Through talking to current, or former professional athletes I will be exploring the transferable skills we can all learn from them, no matter what we do for a living.
