Your Inner Athlete: How To Cope With A Bad Day

Dr. Haley Perlus is a regular presenter at the Telluride WOW Festival. This week, in her regular video column, Haley talks about accepting what is even (or especially) when the chips are down. It’s not always about muscling through. Sometimes it’s about acceptance – of the moment (or moments) and/or self. In your sport. In life.



About Dr. Haley Perlus:

Dr. Haley Perlus is a regular presenter at the Telluride WOW Festival, where this year she talked about “The Psychology Behind Good Nutrition” and “The Only Way to Really Conquer Your Fear.” Missed it? Here’s the skinny: in its fourth year, Becca Tudor’s and Albert Roer’s WOW once again lived up to the superlative acronym that is its name: Becca Tudor’s awesome Weekend of Wellness celebrates overall fitness, including ways to grow a spine, man up – yoga, kettle bell, Pilates, cycling – and also get educated about health trends in general through lectures by doctors, nutritionists, and renowned experts in the field of sports psychology. Experts such as Haley, a stand-out on a long list of superstar women featured every year at Telluride WOW, a no-miss event if you are on a path towards personal transformation.

I attended Haley’s first WOW lecture about the psychology behind good nutrition and overall health. The holistic contents turned out to be a back door to ways to live a healthy life in general. We were all left wanting more from this buff, blonde brainiac, so Telluride Inside… and Out invited Haley to blog on our site. Lucky for us, Haley agreed.

BIO: With a Ph.D. in Sport and Exercise Psychology, M.S. in Sport Pedagogy, and numerous fitness and coaching certifications, Dr. Perlus is an expert at empowering athletes of all types and health enthusiasts achieve peak results. An adjunct professor at the University of Colorado, international speaker, former Alpine ski racer, appointed Industry Leader for, and author, including soon-to-be-released “The One Minute Diet and Guidebook to Gold.”

Dr. Perlus helps people reach their highest standard of performance.
