As a student-athlete, you might be feeling exhausted, overly stressed, or less excited about the sport(s) and classes you once enjoyed.
You might frequently wake up tired, sore, and still ruminating over mistakes you made in your last competition. You probably want nothing more than a day of rest, but chances are, you have a ton of homework to catch up on, as you can’t seem to find the time or energy to complete everything in between classes, bus rides, games, and your personal life.
The pressure of representing your high school or college and being watched and criticized by so many people, including yourself, is very intense. Maybe you’re so anxious and overwhelmed that your athletic performance and grades are both slipping. You might be comparing yourself to others, questioning if you even want to continue competing, and unsure of which academic path is best for you.
