Maria Sharapova shares her mental health and workout secrets
Russian native Maria Sharapova won the Wimbledon tournament at just 17 years old. The retired tennis star shared her physical fitness secrets and tips for better mental health, and it turns out the two are intertwined.
Maria shared with Glamour magazine that she begins her day with exercise. She said, “I usually start my day with a sweat, and whether that’s 15, 20 minutes – or an hour or hour and a half if I want to push myself.”
She explained that starting the day with a workout improves the quality of the entire day. Maria said, “I definitely feel better on the other side. My spirits are lifted, I feel healthier, I ended up eating much better during the day.”
Maria’s day becomes more manageable when she breaks down her large duties into smaller tasks. She explained, “ I feel like we want to place ourselves in all these different buckets and I like to set those goals and those buckets can be as easy as thinking, ‘okay, today I have my small to-do list. I want to spend time with my family, I want to get my work done, I want to take care of my body, but it always starts with myself.”
Maria finished with some wisdom that mental health starts from within, “Mental health is carried with us throughout the entire day. From the moment that we wake up to when we go to sleep.”
