Mental fitness is as important as match fitness for women soccer players.

Lori Hanemann

Prompted by today's trending Twitter hashtag, #bellLetsTalk, I wanted to write a short post about mental health and remind all of you that taking care of yourself is just as, if not more, important as your soccer fitness. The hashtag comes from the Bell company, and it's program to give to mental health initiatives when people tweet, text, etc. using their hashtag#

It's a great reminder that we should all make the topic of mental health part of our life and to not fall into the stigma that comes with it. It should not be an embarrassing topic, though society has created these myths and false ideas about it. Most everyone, despite their public personality, deals with their mental health every day, at some level. Many have a handle on it by methods which work best for them, counseling, exercise, medication, education and so on.  The point is to not be afraid to discuss it with friends and family, or find a counselor if you don't have support elsewhere.  Mental health issues should never be ignored, and you deserve to live your best life. Don't battle it alone. There is help out there. If you play soccer your mental focus and fitness will determine how well you'll do in the sport. Even if you're great but are hiding depression, anxiety, or other challenges, just think how much greater you'd be if you got some help in managing it. Or if your career is in the sport, keep mentally fit to bring focus to your work and leadership. Take care of the whole you. It's okay to ask for help. Email me if you can't sort it out lori@soccergirl.co
