7 psychological factors that affect sports performance
3) Are you feeling down or depressed?: Your emotional state affects your sports performance greatly. Try going to the gym after you have a serious fight on the phone with someone and you will find yourself performing greatly. It all happens because anger fuels the body with hormones that promote strength. The opposite happens with emotions that steal energy such as depression, sadness or disappointment. If you tried to exercise on a day where you got disappointed then you will find yourself having lower energy than usual
