Finish Stronger Mindset and Mental Wellness Coaching

Shannon is providing mindset and mental wellness coaching services to help endurance runners and athletes to strengthen their mind, improve their mental wellbeing, and sport performance.

Are you working towards strengthening your mind because you want to push beyond limits, but keep getting stuck? Do you want to learn how to create a resilient mindset while applying it to running and fitness? Would you like to improve your overall mental wellbeing?

Shannon practices and teaches endurance athletes a variety of strategies and skills to help them strengthen their mind. The mind is a muscle and we must exercise it in order to create resiliency.

What is a mindset?

Have you ever dropped out of a race or given up on something because your head was in the wrong space? Have you ever fought thoughts or “inner demons,” as we call them in the ultrarunning community, during a run or “hard effort” exercise? Is your mind set to fixed or set to growth? Your mindset is a set of beliefs that shape how you make sense of the world and yourself. It influences how you think, feel, and behave in any given situation. Our thoughts can shape how we behave, so in order to achieve our highest goals, we must know how to manage the mind.

What is resiliency?

Getting comfortable with being uncomfortable. Resilience is a habit, a skill, and a mindset that can help you manage and keep your balance during difficult times. It is learning and growing from the challenges that we face. Adopting a flexible mind in life’s situations.

Creating a shift in the way that you think is a process, it takes time, patience, attention to detail, and hard work, just as dialing in athletic abilities.
