Sports Mental Edge with Dr. Diaz, #ORadio

Ostrolenk speaks with Doctor Diaz, a Sports Psychology Consultant with a doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology. Dr. Diaz focuses on teaching peak performance and mental wellness, primarily to athletes, through an embodied mind and body approach. Under high levels of stress, the human nervous system feed behavioral patterns that disrupt learned skills, resulting in under-performing. Conversely, an integrative mind and body therapeutic approach is designed to manage emotions to alleviate the overwhelmed nervous system. In so doing, athletes learn to shift stress-related body sensations to a felt sense awareness that promotes increased focused, resilience, and, consequently, improved performance.
