Boosting resilience through body and mind – learnings from Formula 1 (in English)
In our next Technopolis Wellness Talks Pete McKnight, Director of Coaching and Sports Science of Hintsa Performance, will talk about his learnings from elite sports.
2020 will be remembered as the year our mental and physical resilience were put to the test. So how can you set yourself up for a healthy and productive autumn?
There is a strong link between body and brain. We know intuitively that a brisk walk can clear the mind, or that a positive attitude can boost our gym routine. But how can we use that link to our advantage? For example, can exercise make you more sharp and creative? If so, what kind of exercise?
Pete McKnight, world-class performance coach of Olympic athletes and Formula 1 drivers, explores the scientific link between body and brain: what do we know about how physical and mental health interact, and what can we do about it? Drawing on learnings from elite athletes, Pete gives concrete takeaways for the listeners.
