Sport psychology consultants often espouse the importance of athletic “balance” with their clients as a prerequisite for high performance and a decreased risk of injury and athlete burnout. However, seldom do consultants heed this advice as effectively as they dispense it. Here, a certified consultant with 5 years experience and a young (and growing) family shares the challenges of pouring his energy into the right “cups”. Balance and burnout literature will be presented, as will personal anecdotes, that illustrate the detrimental nature of disregarding an appropriate work-life balance.
