I have been swimming for over half of my life and I can't imagine not doing it. I want to continue swimming for as long as I can. I think that it is a great way to stay in shape and relieve stress.
When I have a teammate racing I am always at the other end of the pool or behind the blocks cheering them on. I always give my team a big pep talk before the meets and come up to them and give them individual ones before they race. I help them whenever they need it and I make sure that everyone knows where they are supposed to be at meets. Away from the pool, I help my team with any academics when they need it and I help arrange team bonding things.
The obvious answer is eating healthy, drinking a lot of water, and getting plenty of sleep. While those are very important and I do maintain those as best as I can, another thing thats very important is mental health. I try to not put a lot of pressure on myself. Its very easy to feel overwhelmed with school and participating in sports and for me a job, so I always make sure that I have at least some time to myself throughout the week so if I need to I can clear my head I can. I also definitely stay away from the drama cause that just adds unnecessary stress.
I am in the National Honor Society at my high school. Because of that, I have been able to help a lot around the community with things like special olympics, which is where special education students from my school and some surrounding schools will come and compete in different events such as running, long jump, etc. some of the kids aren't able to be without a supervisor, and I was assigned to one of these kids to help out, I have done this my sophomore and junior year, and if we have it again I will be helping out my senior year as well. I have also helped tutor at the our elementary school during summer school, and I will be doing this throughout my senior year as well. I have also helped at some local churches soup kitchens. I think things like this are important because I love being involved both inside and outside of school, and I think things like this really help bring people together as a community.
