Why athletes need to train their minds just as they do their bodies

When it comes to sports, physical ability is only part of the equation for high performance. Mental health is equally important, if not more so. To perform at their best, athletes need to have a strong body and mind.

On this episode, Deloitte chief well-being officer Jen Fisher talks with Dr. Nyaka NiiLampti, Vice President of Wellness and Clinical Services at the NFL. She’s a licensed psychologist with more than fifteen years of clinical experience with organizations, sports teams, individuals, and families. 

We spend so much time working on our physical development, especially at those higher levels of performance, why would we not think about spending some time on our mental development?

– Dr. Nyaka NiiLampti,

Vice President of Wellness and Clinical Services at the NFL
