Overwhelmed by that climbing wall? You can train your mind to conquer your fears and gain everyday confidence
Before you go to the gym In anticipation of doing something that scares you, visualise the best-case outcome. Spend some time picturing yourself (looking through your own eyes) going through the whole activity – eg entering a gym, approaching a climbing wall, going to the top and then getting down again safely. Run through that positive representation a few times.
