Sportspersons who gave more importance to mental health.

From Naomi Osaka To Ben Stokes: Take A Look At 3 Sportspersons Who Felt The Need To Prioritize Their Mental Health Over Fame

Top athletes, singers, and actresses are constantly encircled by noise, which can wreak havoc in their lives and rob them of their sanity. For a long time, bearing such unjust treatment was regarded as a sign of bravery. These celebrities, on the other hand, are breaking the rules by taking well-deserved vacations and setting inspiration for the rest of us.

1. Simone Biles

Midway through the Olympics, the greatest gymnast of all time stated that she would not be competing because the burden was too much for her mental health. The 24-year-old set an excellent example for others, demonstrating that even ‘superhumans’ require breaks and that people should do what is best for them, even if they are at the pinnacle of their employment.

2. Naomi Osaka

Osaka had a difficult time. Her choice not to address post-match news conferences did not sit well with the French Open officials, as she is currently the most relevant tennis player in the world. As a result, she received a fine and was forced to quit the event.

She did, however, hold firm in her belief that the media should treat athletes with more respect, and for that, the entire community should be thankful.

3. Ben Stokes

Ben Stokes, a 30-year-old English cricketer, recently announced that he will take an “indefinite vacation from playing cricket” to focus on his mental health. “The demands on our athletes to prepare and play elite sport are unrelenting, but the current epidemic has significantly amplified this,” Ashley Giles, England’s director of men’s cricket, stated in support of Ben’s decision. “Staying extended periods of time away from family with limited liberties is tremendously difficult. Over the last 16 months, the accumulated effect has had a serious influence on everyone’s well-being.”
