How nature helps mental health
Two weeks ago, Darmstadt and Iceland midfielder Victor Palsson gave an emotional interview. The 29-year-old talked about grief after the death of his mother, including crying in front of his 3-year-old son and losing 8 kilos (17.6 pounds) during what he described as a dark time. Palsson's readiness to talk openly about topics that are rarely public knowledge in football speaks to the tools he has developed and how much more open the world is becoming about mental health . The question is: has professional football done just as much development as he has? "In professional sport, it is often stated that it's important to always be strong and keep going… It has to be okay and accepted to have mental struggles and to ask for help," Palsson said in his interview on Darmstadt's website.

Toni writes about how to live well when you're managing chronic pain and illness. Her work helped me stay calm and cope with the uncertainty of having a problem of unknown cause/duration, and felt very de-stigmatizing. Luckily, my problem has gotten a lot better, and now it only flares up intermittently at a much milder intensity than it originally did.
