All Black mental skills coach on downtime
For Christchurch-based All Blacks leadership manager and mental skills coach Gilbert Enoka, downtime plays a crucial role in his day.
When Enoka has a day off or time to himself, he schedules in exercise and a massage.
“I have a very deliberate day that actually fills my tank and no matter where I am in the world, I can get access to those things.”
“Downtime can be simple things like reading a book, having a coffee, having a treat of some sort, watching something that you particularly like to see, going for a walk - but it’s the ordinary and soul enriching nature of those pleasures that really enhance individuals and increase their capacity to function at high levels and feel really good about themselves.”
