TWO-STEP STRESS RELIEF
‘You can improve how you deal with stress, and therefore your performance, in a matter of hours,’ says Walsh. ‘There are two simple things that will immediately make a difference.’
‘The first thing to address is glucose. The more you deplete that, the more your physical and mental capabilities are hampered.’ When you’re depleted, replenish with unprocessed carbs – potatoes and rice will work.
‘You need automatic response patterns to deal with issues. For example, if you go 30-love down in a tennis match, you should already know your response. Perhaps it’s to drag out the rallies and make your opponent run. But if you’re trying to think and play, then both will suffer.’
