How Carmelo Stays Mellow
Anthony may be an ultra-talented athlete, but he did not get where he is today by skipping the basics of good physical and mental health. Here are his five tips to keep yourself in the game.
Make exercise a habit. "If you do something on a regular basis, it becomes part of your life."
Take it easy. "I try to relax before a game rather than get hyped. When I'm relaxed, I'm more prepared and can see things clearly."
Give yourself time to heal. "At the end of the season, I usually take 2 to 3 weeks off and let my body just heal normally, rebuild myself."
Embrace moderation. "By this point, I know what I can eat and what I can't eat. I love foods like pizza, but I don't go overboard with it."
Believe in yourself. "If you're not confident, it takes away from a lot of things you could achieve."
