Duration 1 Minute 58 Seconds
Author Swim England
Description Times of uncertainty can play havoc with your emotions, not knowing whether your next swimming session is next month, later in the year, or even next year. Swim England sport psychologists Hannah Stoyel and Helen Davis have put together a video for Swim England club members, coaches and parents to help understand how to identify and process these emotions. Hannah and Helen impress that we are in an unprecedented situation at the moment, with pools indefinitely closed due to the coronavirus outbreak. There is a huge range of emotions that we might feel about this – sometimes many over a short period of time. It’s important to remember that all these emotions are valid reactions, when we’re feeling out of control. Hannah and Helen refer to Geoffrey Roberts’s Feeling Wheel (see video) and how this can help us identify how and why we are feeling a certain way. While not many things feel normal in times of uncertainty, we develop a new normal.

The Weight of Gold: Panel Discussion feat. Michael Phelps

The Weight of Gold: Panel Discussion feat. Michael Phelps

Dr. Rachel O’Neil of Talkspace is joined by EPs Michael Phelps and Peter Carlisle, Director Brett Rapkin, US Olympic Athlete Katie Uhlaender, and Shannon Decker of The Speedy Foundation to discuss how #TheWeightofGold came to be. In a typical year, more than 3.6 billion people globally tune in to watch the Olympic Games. What most of these viewers don’t know is that just like one in five Americans, many of these Olympic athletes similarly face serious mental health challenges and struggle to find the necessary support and resources. The Weight of Gold seeks to inspire discussion about mental health issues, encourage people to seek help, and highlight the need for readily available support. It features accounts from Olympic athletes who share their own struggles with mental health issues, including Michael Phelps, Jeremy Bloom, Lolo Jones, Gracie Gold, Bode Miller, Shaun White, Sasha Cohen, David Boudia, Katie Uhlaender, and, posthumously, Steven Holcomb and Jeret "Speedy" Peterson (via his mother, Linda Peterson).
