I'm world-champion diver David Boudia, and I'm here to show you today's Attain Game challenge, the Mindfulness Marathon.
You know, even as an athlete, I think the mental health training is just as important as physical health, so today's goal in this challenge is to do 26.2 minutes of mindfulness training.
And one of the ways that I like to do that is lying flat on my back and making sure that I'm taking deep breaths in through my nose, out through my mouth, and thinking about the here and now. So that means you're not worrying about the past. You're not worrying about the future, but the here and now.
And these are some of the ways that I like to do it.
Okay, now it's your turn. Don't forget to post on your social account of your Mindfulness Marathon with #AttainGames. Ready, set, relax.
World-champion diver and mental health advocate David Boudia shows you how to have the most relaxing marathon of your life in today’s Attain Games challenge, the Mindfulness Marathon. The goal is 26.2 minutes of mindfulness, in whatever forms you choose: meditate, take an unplugged walk around your neighborhood, break out your favorite yoga moves. And remember this is a marathon, not a sprint (so take your time).
Do not attempt the Attain Games challenges if you have a medical condition that will be affected, or if your doctor advises you not to take part in physical activity. There may be an opportunity for you to earn the same reward by different means.
Start hitting your goals, earning rewards, and forging your path to better health.
