How to beat stress, stay strong and look fabulous
Being a professional athlete can appear seemingly fun and glamorous. But it’s not as easy as it seems. Mental performance* and energy production & release** is crucial when it comes to being an athlete. The ability to stay alert and endure the physical strain that comes with long and demanding matches are critical to success.
Take the example of the 2008 Australian Open third-round encounter between Australia’s Lleyton Hewitt and Cypriot Marcus Baghdatis. It was a marathon match etched in the memories of all tennis fans. Due to earlier delays, the match, which began at 11:47 pm local time, ended almost five hours later at 04:33 am. Hewitt was victorious in five sets, but not before Baghdatis saved a few match points in the fourth.
Sportsmen and women work hard to get to where they are and, once they’re at the top, there’s still a lot of work involved to stay there. Hewitt knows this all too well. A former tennis world number 1, he has sustained injury after injury. He was nicknamed ‘Rusty’ but is ever determined to prolong his career a little longer.
Exercising and eating the right foods are important in Hewitt’s active lifestyle. In Hewitt’s case, as can be for us mere mortals too, it is important that we have a balanced and varied diet which we can top up with food supplements to ensure we are getting our daily dose of nutrients. So taking a multivitamin can help. For an active lifestyle look for a multivitamin formulated with premium ingredients that will contribute to your mental performance* and energy production & release**:
“As a professional tennis player I demand a lot from my body – that’s why I choose Swisse.” Lleyton said.
