Life: Through the lens of mental health

E25 90% Mental with Bob Tewksbury

1 year ago

This week we were joined by Bob Tewksbury, retired major league baseball pitcher and mental skills coach. Bob's baseball journey was one for the books, but the end of his baseball career was the beginning of new career in sports psychology. As he describes in his book, 90% Mental, sports are not just about hitting a home run or scoring the winning goal; there are layers to great players, and mental skills are just one. We talked with Bob about his experience in the outfield, and what he is up to now, as well as how the mental skills applied in sports are applicable to our lives, even if we do not play a sport.

You can connect with Bob via his website,, or on Twitter,

As always, thank you for your continued support by subscribing, reviewing, rating, and coercing your mailperson to listen :)

Mental health is everywhere. Period. The human experience; work, hobbies, interests, entertainment, challenges, relationships etc. is unique and seen through our own individual 'lenses'. Take a journey through these experiences together with a mental health professional (me!), his dry wit, and guests from across the landscape of everyday life he convinced to join him as they have candid conversations- all through the lens of mental health. Almost like you do...but recorded. No corn or dads were harmed during production. Obvious statement: Listening to this podcast, while meaningful and entertaining, does not come close to replacing professional support. Please feel encouraged to seek proper care if you are struggling. Please do not take us super seriously...we don't :) We can always be reached at
