‘Only a man who knows what it is like to be defeated can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to win when the match is even.’
Muhammad Ali

The Extra Ounce is where I post about concepts from sport psychology and psychology in general. I take a key interest in mental health, recovery and the connection between the mind and the body in the pursuit of well-being. I draw inspiration from my lived experiences as a patient and student of the psychological sciences. My posts are intended to provide that extra ounce we need to conquer daily challenges.
