It’s hard enough to get kids to do their homework, let alone, get a busy kid to do their homework. Gymnasts have a TOUGH schedule, and homework can definitely put a damper on their precious down time.
Recently, we talked about block scheduling, essentially setting aside a block of time to do a certain activity. For homework, this can often be pretty late into the evening.
Having a planned period to do homework is great but sometimes our minds aren’t thinking clearly when the moment comes around. Even as adults, it’s typical to see the laundry that needs to be folded and choose to scroll our phones.
When we’re tired in the moment, we don’t always make the best choices for our wellbeing.
In this episode, Coach Ali explains how an “I did it anyway” jar can be a useful tool for a tired gymnast who needs to crank out some homework before bed.
We have tons of tips and tricks for your gymnasts to get creative with their schedules, and for you to help them manage their busy lives!
We would also be so grateful if you pass our podcast on to other coaches! Or simply leave a review so other coaches can get in on the mindset magic and we can help change the culture of our sport to be a place where gymnasts are healthy, happy and know how to win.
We have courses and coaching programs for individual gymnasts and gymnastics teams that are based on proven behavioral science. And results that speak for themselves. Invest in the one thing that will have the greatest impact on your gym or your gymnasts success. Their mind.
