Parent page: Life After Sport
If you are passionate about sports or you are planning to get into sports, you should know that as much as your days in active sports will be adrenaline-filled, there will come a time when you will have to slow down or leave the world of sports. For most sportspeople, the pressure of not knowing what to do after a life of active sports can be overwhelming. Some of the things you can do in your life after sports include the following.
Become a Mentor/Coach
If you still love sports and want to be involved in it, you can become a mentor or coach. You can either work with a team or mentor an individual sports personality. If you performed well in your life as a sportsperson, it would not be difficult to get someone to work with you. You can even try online coaching, where you work with many sportspeople at the same time.
Write a Book
Do you feel like your experience in your life during sports is worth telling? Well, perhaps you should write a book after you retire from active sports. Pick on significant things about your journey. It can be a book about sharing tips on how to excel in sports or your overall experience of how you navigated through the sporting world. If you are not sure of your writing ability, you can work with a ghostwriter. There is also an option of writing an e-book.
Explore Your Bucket List
During your life in sports, the chances are that you rarely got time to engage in social activities. Life after sports gives you an opportunity to explore things you may have wanted to do but never got time. This can be your time to travel the world, engage in a hobby, and basically do the things you wanted to do.
