Any advice on how to get motivated to improve at a sport?

When I was in my 20’s I was very sporty and most of my social outlets involved sports and exercise. However, I suffered from a period of depression and lost interest in sports. After getting back into a better space I was keen to take up sports again but I found it hard mentally to motivate myself. Much like I had done with my depression, I focused on mindfulness techniques to reinspire the sportsperson in me. I started going to well-being therapy sessions at a clinic offering physiotherapy in Medway and they helped me get back on track and set goals for sports and exercise. 

You may find mindfulness useful if you’re experiencing reduced motivation. You can find out more about mindfulness on YouTube and Google, or like me, you may want to go to well-being therapy and work with a professional to get yourself back into a mentally healthy space.
