LeBron James Postgame Interview - Game 5 | Heat vs Lakers | October 9, 2020 NBA Finals

I wanted to share this quote from Lebron James from a recent game with the Miami Heat. What he said is relevant to athletics, but also we can apply these principles to how we cope with the current pandemic.

"You focus on each quarter and each possession and don't get caught up in the aftermath.

Stay in the moment and if you let your mind go, you make a mistake.

Stay in the here and now and stay even keeled."

Congrats Los Angeles Lakers on winning the 2020 NBA championship!

One tip I give to my patients is to do moderate exercise when they can, because it reduces symptoms of depression and improves mood levels, thanks to the feel-good hormones you get (endorphins).
