Sports psychology and performance Benched

    • Sports

UNC Sports Psychologist Hayley Hughes joins Benched Host Jules Micchia to have a conversation about mental health and its impact on athletic performance (12:55), but not without hearing about Hayley’s transition from being a hockey player in Canada to being a first-gen student-athlete at Cornell (2:07). They cover the difference between female and male individual and team sports in sports psychology (12:55) and how to battle the cycle of these specific mental health stigmas (24:21). Later, a covid baby? (35:39)
