EP7 – It’s All About The Relationships

The Rubio Method is a light-hearted and funny show on mens’ health led by Chris Rubio with co-host Nick Monaghan. You are going to love the stories that Rubio tells and the way in which he tells them.  In today’s episode, “It’s All About The Relationships”, our hosts discuss coaching, being able to control your thoughts, not using the word “can’t”, how mental health care is performance enhancement and much more.

Starting today’s episode off, our hosts answer three questions from the listeners. In this segment, we learn about our hosts’ style, awards they won in high school, and parenting tips from Rubio.

Then they open it up to their guest on this episode, Dr. Josie Nicholson. Josie is the Athletic Director for Sports Psychology at Ole Miss. At this point Josie answers what she would change her name to if given the chance, the best concert she has attended, and if she could only eat one food for the rest of her life what would she choose.

Josie shares with our hosts why she believes mental health has become so prominent in recent years. How the pandemic impacted mental health. Also, she reflects on her own experiences as a college athlete in the 90s. Including the different influences on her during this time. Another aspect she has brought into her life is teaching her boys that they are not allowed to say the word “can’t”. Now, they can say “I can’t do this yet”, which is a powerful change. This influence at a young age completely alters their mindset. Then we learn how Dr. Nicholson uses ‘pink elephants’ and ‘white foxes’ in her daily practice with athletes.

To close today’s episode, Rubio and Monaghan share what the three main takeaways listeners should get from Dr. Josie Nicholson and our hosts.
