Your Inner Athlete: Stopping Negative Thoughts

Your Inner Athlete: Stopping Negative Thoughts

Dr. Haley Perlus is a regular presenter at the Telluride WOW Festival, (June 9 – 12, 2016), 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 lived up to the superlative acronym that is its name: the event melded mind and body awareness with the goal of moving participants (and instructors) towards holistic health. With Telluride in her rear view mirror, Haley now continues with tips about ways to empower “Your Inner Athlete.” This week her mental toughness moment is about how to stop negative thoughts.

About Dr. Haley Perlus:

The event wears its name like a glove: “WOW.”  The acronym is a perfect fit for Becca Tudor’s awesome Weekend of Wellness, relatively new festival (the 4th annual gathering takes place in early June 9 – 12, 2016) that celebrates overall fitness, including ways to grow a spine, man up –  yoga, kettle bell, Pilates, cycling, kids’ classes – 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 Dr. Haley Perlus, a stand-out on a long list of superstar women featured at Telluride WOW, already a no-miss event if you are on a path towards personal transformation.


I attended Haley’s 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. And lucky for us all, Haley agreed.
