We all know that sport performance is influenced by attitude, but what happens when the idea of having a positive outlook is taken too far? Toxic positivity is the belief that no matter how challenging or difficult a situation is, people should maintain a positive mindset. It can put a lot of pressure on a coach, athlete or anyone else, to ignore how they are feeling about a problem or loss and “just look on the bright side”.

 

Toxic positivity can ignore real harm and trauma that a person may be experiencing and demeans how they are feeling. As coaches, we want to help our teams and athletes move through their negative emotions and comes to a true place of positivity without feeling invalidated or stigmatized for having a bad feeling. Join Dr. Peter Liu as he talks about how we can help our athletes stay positive while still still giving their negative feelings the acknowledgement they deserve.
