    Minding Your Mind - The yips

    Professional golfers sometimes forget how to putt. They’ve spent years putting thousands of balls, then suddenly they can’t do it anymore. It’s called ‘The Yips’ and a similar thing can afflict gymnasts, baseball players and tennis players. What is ‘The Yips’? How can you forget an action that you have practiced for years?

    Minding Your Mind - Ross Gittins and Mental Wealth

    Minding Your Mind - Ross Gittins and Mental Wealth

    COVID prompted discussion about how we reconcile economic priorities with our collective mental health and wellbeing. Why can’t we have both? Should we broaden our focus past economic growth and the simplistic notion that ‘the economy comes first’ to include the ‘mental wealth’ of our nation. What would that even mean? How would it help? How would you measure it?  SMH Economics Editor Ross Gittins joins us to discuss.
