New Beginnings

Interview With Kevin And Deen

  • The first step is always the hardest — it all gets progressively, yet rather inconsistently easier from here. It will be a journey with many twists and turns, many ups and downs, so it’s important to acknowledge and try to remind yourself of this as often as you can. Try starting off with something small, so as not to overwhelm yourself with a goal that feels too complicated to achieve. Set clear and easy targets, like spending just 10–20 minutes doing any sort of physical activity — you’ll be surprised how your energy and drive will continue to unfold.
  • The activity or activities we choose are strictly personal and subjective. Each person is different, and should feel free to experiment and decided on what they’ll dedicate their time and energy towards, without any constraints or doubts.
  • It’s perfectly fine to change your mind and your goals as you go on. You don’t have to stick to something that you can no longer relate to, or something that might even be causing you harm at this point. Change is a natural part of growing, so don’t be afraid to embrace it.
  • Football has been associated with mental health and even part of one’s identity. This highlights the impact that sports & physical activity can have within our daily lives, and why it is important to stay committed, even when times are though.
  • Last but not least, this interview highlighted that resuming physical activity and regaining motivation is challenging even for professionals, so please do not get discouraged! Try to push away the tendency to compare yourself to others as much and as often as you can. Just follow your own pace, your own journey, and sooner or later, you will notice improvements and be able to enjoy and appreciate the results of your own work and dedication.
