Raheem Sterling has just continued his ongoing partnership with meditation app Headspace by unveiling a bespoke content collection titled, ‘Power of Mind with Raheem’.
The content gives Headspace members a unique insight into how the four-time Premier League winner and UEFA EURO ’21 finalist helped foster his elite mentality and overcame the doubters to become one of the biggest ballers in England history.
Led by Headspace meditation teacher Dora Kamau, the sessions address the stigma of mental health and provide a unique insight into how Sterling has helped strengthen his mentality via mediation.
The collection of videos and meditations find Raheem and Dora explore seven key themes which are designed to be followed across seven days, focussing on the importance of discipline, overcoming obstacles and being kind to yourself.
The first theme is structured around ‘Understanding our why…’ exploring how to find space when training your mind and why it is important to set intentions when starting out with meditation, being mindful of what’s achievable.
For the second theme, ‘Showing Up in Life’, the duo navigate how to find motivation through meditation practice and build self-confidence, while the third and fourth themes – ‘Overcoming Difficulties’ and ‘How We Talk to Ourselves’ – dive into how to cope with pressure, and practising self-compassion.
The final three themes of the seven-day collection – ‘In The Zone’, ‘Staying on the Ball’ and ‘Cause for Celebration’ – explore kindness, commitment and gratitude. Raheem unlocks the ‘feel-good factor’ of meditation throughout the course, and reaffirms why celebrating our personal achievements cultivates a winning mindset.
Speaking candidly about his own journey with meditation, Raheem said: “I’m excited to share this new collection with Headspace members.
“Dora and I talk about meditation and mental health in an open and honest way, which I hope will encourage more kids to take interest in the practice and, most importantly, have the tools available to not only transform the way they think, but also process their thoughts in a way that helps them to make the best possible decisions.
“Mental training, through meditation, is as important as physical training – doing it regularly helps me to have a much calmer, clearer and sharper mind. When we are in a good mindset, our potential is limitless. Meditation is a great practice – once I learnt how to train the mind, I had the power over my mind, not vice-versa, which was a game-changer.”
