Climbing can teach you patience
Updated: Apr 24, 2022
From what I understand, patience and mindfulness go hand in hand, and both can be learned through your climbing practice. In fact, Joe Prebich, Mammut North American CEO, says one of the best things about rock climbing is that the sport forces you to literally look at and consider every step and every move.
"In life, this is more important than ever; people are busy, and having those moments of elevated heart rate to truly focus on you and the challenge in front of you is what really makes climbing a perfect escape, and because you're constantly forced to assess every situation, surrounding, and adjust when necessary, the sport keeps your mind "extraordinarily engaged and active," Joe Prebish.
