Phelps’ sleeping situation is, well, unique. Each night he dozes off in a special altitude chamber.”

Michael Phelp’s chamber is actually really expensive. Although, if you’re an athlete at East Hall High School you can still aim for high quality sleep. All you have to do is make sure your room is dark and cool as possible. Make sure all of the  light possible is out of your room; including electronics.

Visualize Goals- Carli Lloyd

“There’s one thing Lloyd is focusing on a lot more these days: her mind.”

To be a successful athlete, on any level, you have to have the right mentality. Right now, you may not be playing football, soccer, softball, basketball, e.t.c, in front of thousands of fans at East Hall, but you may still have goals that you want to achieve. Whatever the goal is, envision yourself doing it before hand.

Possess Self-Confidence-  Claressa Sheilds

“Priding herself on being confident not cocky.”

Self confidence is one of the most important characteristics every athlete should have. If you’re a second string middle linebacker at East Hall High School, you need to have self confidence if you want to start over big, Jacob Wade. Avoid crossing the fine line between confidence and arrogance, and believe in yourself and the work you’re doing.

Don’t Be So Serious All The Time- Simone Biles

Unlike her competitive counterparts, Biles often has a more relaxed manner.”

Don’t be so serious all the time. The reason you started playing a sport in the first place is to have fun. Remember that a life of all work and no play can wreak havoc on your productivity.

Never Skip Breakfast- Misty May

One word that May-Treanor cares a lot about? Breakfast.”

Have you heard of the saying, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day?” It’s true. Make breakfast a priority. No matter how often you’ve told yourself that skipping that first meal doesn’t matter, know this: If you want to start your day on the right foot at East Hall and you want to make healthy choices throughout the day don’t pass on breakfast.
